Buffalo Bills News - December 6, 2004

Marker The high price of subsidies [8:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The publicly financed package to keep the Buffalo Bills here - $96 million in state money and $28 million from Erie County over six years for stadium renovations and cash grants - remains the largest taxpayer-supported project locally and the yardstick by which all others can be compared.'

Marker Bills devour Dolphins, 42-32 [7:12 AM]
Lockport Union Sun and Journal reports: '“I'm not focusing on all of the playoff scenarios,” Bledsoe said. “I’m just looking ahead to Cleveland. We went 1-0 this week. Now we have to go 1-0 next week.”'

Marker They Actually Have An (Outside) Shot At The Playoffs? [7:11 AM]
Erie Times News reports: 'It’s crazy, I know. Ludicrous. Insane. Completely NUTTY, but oh, so true.'

Marker Fun in the sun for Bills [5:13 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"If you are going to win consistently, you can't be one-dimensional," Bledsoe said. "It was good to see today from our team that despite the Dolphins coming out, playing well and scoring points on us, we were able to pick up the slack and put points on the board."'

Marker Off day by defense didn't hurt [5:12 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Bills were sixth in points allowed, Miami was 31st in points scored, yet Buffalo allowed a season-worst 32. The Dolphins' 25 first downs were the most against the Bills this year, their quarterback, A.J. Feeley, became just the second passer to top 300 yards through the air, and Miami scored touchdowns on all three of its red-zone penetrations. Who cares?'

Marker Bledsoe's true grit leaving no doubt that this is his team [5:11 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'What we do know is that Bledsoe's personal comeback after one of his worst performances in a 29-6 loss at New England on Nov. 14 has put on display the heart and character of one of the NFL's all-time greats (we forget sometimes that the league's 10th all-time passer is in our midst).'

Marker 10-6 usually good enough for playoffs [5:10 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'If the Buffalo Bills win out to finish 10-6, they probably would join a short list of the best teams not to make the playoffs.'

Marker Report card [5:10 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Coaching: Give the defensive staff credit for righting the ship after a terrible start.'

Marker Dolphins tank in loss to Bills [5:07 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'There was good and bad. And in the end, the bad counted more.'

Marker Stealing McGahee's glory at least for day [5:06 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'Bledsoe finished with 277 yards and four touchdowns for an absurdly high efficiency rating of 132.9. ''I've said it since March that we have an identity, and that is running the ball,'' first-year Buffalo coach Mike Mularkey said. ``If we have to throw the football to win, we will throw the football. Whatever phase it takes to win, we'll do that.'''

Marker The pass coverage that wasn't vs. Bills [5:05 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'That six-play, 78-yard drive was the first on which Buffalo went without a huddle. Before the touchdown, Bledsoe completed 3 of 4 for 45 yards on the drive. ''I think the hurry-up got us a little off balance,'' defensive end Jason Taylor said. ``A team comes into your stadium and runs a no-huddle out of a shotgun, they shouldn't be able to do that.'''

Marker Ailing tackle toughs it out [5:04 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'Buffalo cornerback Nate Clements continues to enjoy his yearly visit to Pro Player Stadium. Clements intercepted a pass from A.J. Feeley in the first quarter, the seventh interception of his career against the Dolphins and the sixth in Pro Player.'

Marker Keys to the game [5:03 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'Who: Buffalo WRs Eric Moulds and Lee Evans vs. the Dolphins secondary.
Who won: Moulds and Evans.'

Marker Dolphins fall to 2-10 with 42-32 loss to Bills [5:02 AM]
Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel reports: '"It was beautiful, man," said Bills linebacker Takeo Spikes, who intercepted Feeley earlier in the game. "I told Pat he looked like a hard-boiled egg running down the sideline."'

Marker Bledsoe picks apart secondary [5:02 AM]
Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel reports: '"A team comes into your stadium and runs a no-huddle offense out of the shotgun, they shouldn't be able to do that," Taylor said.'

Marker Happy homecoming for coach, McGahee [5:01 AM]
Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel reports: '"It was strictly a business trip," Mularkey said, "but it felt good to come home and win. It was a total shootout, a real street fight, and I don't think anyone expected it to be that high scoring. Our guys were sucking air a little because of the heat, but I liked the way they responded."'

Marker Long pass to Evans puts Bills up for good [5:00 AM]
Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel reports: '"When the ball left my hand, I thought I had overthrown it. Lee turned on the jets and got it." -- Bills quarterback Drew Bledsoe.'

Marker Bills score 21 points off INTs [4:59 AM]
Palm Beach Post reports: 'So many things will be lost in the shuffle. That Miami allowed a 104-yard kickoff return to start the game. That the Dolphins racked up a season-high 403 yards. That Jason Taylor had a remarkable strip and fumble recovery of Bills running back Willis McGahee.'

Marker Evans gives Buffalo new option [4:58 AM]
Palm Beach Post reports: '"They were trying to take Eric Moulds out of the game with a lot of their coverages, plain and simple," Buffalo coach Mike Mularkey said. "Lee made the plays when they were called for him."'

Marker Bills pick off Dolphins [4:57 AM]
Florida Today reports: '"We were in the game until the end," fullback Rob Konrad said. "I mean, if we only have four or five turnovers, we probably win the football game. That's probably the most disappointing part of it all."'

Marker Bledsoe's big plays take out Dolphins [4:56 AM]
Florida Today reports: '"It's a tough day for us," Knight said. "But any time you give Drew Bledsoe time like that, hey, you know just as well as me -- he picks people apart. We got a little pressure on him a couple of times, and a couple other times we didn't and he made us pay. If you give him time, he's probably the best of all time."'

Marker Pick, pick, pick, pick, pick [4:55 AM]
Vero Beach Press Journal reports: '"Anytime you give Drew Bledsoe time to throw, he's going to pick you apart," Dolphins strong safety Sammy Knight said. "We got a little pressure on him a couple of times, but a couple of times we didn't, and he made us pay."'

Marker Turnovers Play Key Role in Victory [6:46 PM] reports: '"It was a huge emphasis in this game," Head Coach Mike Mularkey said of creating turnovers. "In the last eight years, this game has been decided, other than one, by the turnover ratio. We have stressed it, the defense responded…and they took advantage of it."'

Marker Postgame Notes [6:41 PM] reports: 'With Bills WR Lee Evans catching four passes for 110 yards today, it snapped the Dolphins’ string of not having allowed an individual 100-yard receiver in 21 straight games.'

Marker Bills Win Up And Down Game [6:40 PM] reports: There were many ups and downs in the 42-32 win over Miami. The offense had some struggles with penalties and sacks but overcame them for four touchdowns. The Defense gave up three first quarter touchdowns but forced six turnovers and scored a touchdown. Special teams scored a touchdown and had a takeaway but gave up some good returns and had some penalties. Here are our position by position grades:

Marker Dolphins Postgame Quotes [6:39 PM] reports: Jim Bates (on Buffalo scoring on the opening kickoff): "Well, we got down there, coming from the backside, nobody showed up. They hit a crease and it was out the gate. It was a lapse in coverage and it’s something we’ve been doing a great job of. And they have a great return team – I think they had four touchdowns on returns coming into the game. We knew that. But we’ve also been great on kick cover teams. It was a total breakdown. Anytime they can go that long on a kickoff return, it isn’t one or two guys, it’s a lot of guys."'

Marker Bills Postgame Quotes [6:38 PM] reports: WR Lee Evans: '“(Eric Moulds and) I seem to compliment each other as the season goes on.”'

Marker Lucky 7's For Bills In 42-32 Win [6:26 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Rookie Lee Evans had his third straight noteworthy game. Evans caught four balls for 119 yards and two touchdowns.'

Marker Bills Win Wild Affair 42-32 [6:24 PM] reports: This game between the Bills and Dolphins was so wild it was reminiscent of the games from the 90s. Drew Bledsoe did his Jim Kelly imitation throwing for four touchdowns while the defense overcame some early woes to force six of the Dolphins seven turnovers leading to the Bills 42-32 win in Miami.
