Marker Week 1: Bills-Jets Postgame Quotebook [7:18 PM] reports: "It was a wild game with a lot of big plays up and down the field. It was great to see Drew make some big plays and he kept us in the ball game. Defensively they really played with their backs to the wall and overcame a bunch of things during the ball game. We gave up too many big plays and the big play that beat us at the end of the ball game."

Marker Jets 37, Bills 31, OT [4:44 PM]

Marker Bledsoe gets down to work for Bills today [9:28 AM]

Marker No friction, no fooling [5:52 AM]
D and C reports: 'Twenty-six of the 53 men who made the final roster were not with the Bills last year when this once-proud franchise sank to the depths of the NFL with a 3-13 record.'

Marker New Bills paying for old personnel sins [5:51 AM]
D and C reports: '"Remember the Indy game last year? Six TDs on six straight possessions by Peyton Manning. The Jets averaged 25.3 points per game in the preseason so I'd say Vinny has gotten the hang of the West Coast offense. As the Bills try to stop Martin with eight men in the box, Winfield and Clements are going to see a lot of single coverage today against Coles, Chrebet and Moss."'

Marker Ahanotu provides a royal presence at DE [5:50 AM]
D and C reports: 'Though he turns 32 next month, he doesn't believe he is on the downside of his career. He is confident his ability to stop the run and pressure the passer, plus dole out veteran advice, is just what the Bills' young and inexperienced defensive line needs.'

Olean Times Herald reports: '“I’ve heard these fans ... Buffalo Bills’ fans are crazy,” Bledsoe said. “I’ve said it before, coming in here as an opponent was an extremely difficult proposition because they’re so loud. They stand by their team. I would expect the reception we get when we come out will be crazy. Quite honestly we need them. We need that help and that huge home field advantage that the Bills have had historically. It has to continue, and I expect that it will.”'

Drew also takes command in the huddle like Kelly.'''

Marker Receivers' route to freedom has Moulds off and running [9:16 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Moulds felt restricted in Sheppard's West Coast scheme, which required receivers to run to a certain spot even if the defensive coverage dictated doing something else.

Marker Williams not on hot seat yet [5:28 AM]
D and C reports: 'But is Williams really in danger of a quick hook? Hardly. He is the hand-picked coach of general manager Tom Donahoe, who also plucked the fiery Bill Cowher from the ranks of the obscure to coach the Pittsburgh Steelers back to prominence. The difference is that these two can actually stand being in the same room together. They have mutual admiration. Their personalities mesh. They are a team within the team.'
