Marker It's no Mularkey [9:01 PM] reports: 'Sometimes it seems as though those of us in the media (as well as fans) have a rather short memory, doesnít it? After all, not even twelve months ago we were all anointing Donahoe as the NFL Executive of the Year, based on the moves he made in the off season. But, after the disatrous 2003 season, he hardly looks like such an untouchable decision maker Ė and his future in Buffalo will be directly linked to the decision he made in naming Mike Mularkey as Gregg Williamsí successor.'

Marker Koons eager to start over with Bills in NFL [8:59 PM]
Columbus This Week reports: 'Koons was a Cincinnati Bengals fan while growing up, and the Bills have hired former Cincinnati coach Sam Wyche as quarterback coach. Koons said he always had a soft spot for the Bills, too, but playing professional football is the primary goal.'

Marker Defensive additions offset offensive changes [8:58 PM]
ESPN reports: The most interesting dynamic in the division is the head coaching change in Buffalo.

Marker Gray preparing to guide Buffalo's defense [8:57 PM]
Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reports: '"My responsibility is to try and get us to the Super Bowl," Gray said. "If you go in with an attitude less than that then you don't have the right focus. We have a team, we have the players. We just have to put it together."'

Marker Brandt's 60-second previews: AFC [5:43 PM] reports: Three new coaches decorate the Bills as they head into 2004. Their new HC is former Steelers OC Mike Mularkey, and the new OC is Tom Clements, also from Pittsburgh.

But the addition of veteran coach Sam Wyche as QB coach could be the key to this team. Wyche is an innovative and creative coach who will serve as a guide to starter Drew Bledsoe and mentor to rookie J.P. Losman. In fact, Losman will eventually be the Bills' QB, but knowing Wyche, we may see him get some time in short-yardage situations since Losman is a bigger version of the Steelers' Antwaan Randle El.

Fellow rookie Lee Evans was another good draft pick for the Bills as the most experienced receiver in the draft (he spent six years at Wisconsin). That should help a team that finished 30th overall in total offense score some points. If Mularkey wants to see his team improve, the offense has to get back on track. If they do, this will be an interesting team to watch.

Marker Bryant to get NFL tryout [8:40 AM]
Albany Times Union reports: '"If they're interested, they may sign him," Conquest coach Rick Buffington said Tuesday at a media luncheon. "He could get as far as the practice squad. They make good money right now."'

Marker Albany Conquest QB D. Bryant to tryout with Buffalo Bills on Thursday [8:39 AM] reports: '"This is tremendous opportunity for D. and he certainly deserves it," said Albany Conquest Head Coach Rick Buffington. "If Buffalo likes what they see they could sign him in the near future. D. will fly out from Buffalo to Green Bay to play in our game on Friday night against the Blizzard. He will not miss any practices this week since Thursday is a travel day for us."'

Marker Offseason Overview: Buffalo Bills [10:50 AM]
ESPN reports: There's no question that the Bills have all the pieces to have a potent, high-scoring offense. The key will be giving Bledsoe the time he needs to make his reads down the field. With all the weapons Mularkey has at his disposal, it's tough to imagine the Bills struggling on offense the way they did last season.

On the other side of the ball, status quo wouldn't be the worst thing to happen to a team that ranked second in the league in total defense. But there's a fine line between status quo and complacency and the Bills would be wise to toe it carefully.

If Mularkey is able to get the new additions to jell and work out some chemistry puzzles (i.e. Henry and McGahee), there should be plenty of cheers from Ralph Wilson and the patrons of his stadium.

Marker Cell Phones For Soldiers [10:15 AM]
CBS reports: Within two months, Brittany and Robbie have organized fundraisers to purchase old cell phones and prepaid calling cards. They have raised more than $130,000 through these events and their Web site, Cell Phones For Soldiers.

Marker A good deed, a great ride [10:14 AM]

Marker Inside slant [5:50 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'The Bills have the added challenge of signing two first-round draft picks this year and with training camp opening in less than a month, the clock is ticking on getting wide receiver Lee Evans and quarterback J.P. Losman into the fold.'

Marker Strategy and personnel [5:49 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'Furthermore, with no CBA extension, new contracts can only be factored out over six years - that's if Donahoe were to get one done in 2004. Deals written next year will be under even tighter constraints, meaning Donahoe may not have the leverage it appears he has by suspending talks until further notice. One agent said Donahoe's fax was merely more posturing and he won't be bullied into a premature, under-market deal.'

Marker Notes, quotes, anecdotes [5:48 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'Ruben Brown may have been cut by the Bills but he has no hard feelings, at least not enough to let them get in the way of his charity work. The classy nine-year veteran went ahead with his fourth annual Ruben Brown Motorcycle Run to benefit the Salvation Army last weekend from the Ralph Wilson Stadium parking lots. Celebrity riders Jim Kelly, Fred Smerlas, Ted Washington, Sam Gash and Pat Williams took part.'

Marker NFL's never-ending offseason a concern to Vincent [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"When we spend time on certain tasks, on improving certain areas of our lives, we generally get results," Vincent said by phone last week. "If I spend time in the weight room, on the practice field, generally I'll get results on the playing field. There's a slim chance I won't get results. The same thing applies in our daily lives with our families. What you put in is exactly what you'll get out.''

Marker Soldiers Still Love Bills Overseas [11:30 PM] reports: 'The battalion has been stationed in Iraq since February 16, 2004, though many are confident their mission will not last much longer.

Marker Bills Rookies off to a Good Start [4:07 PM] reports: 'The Buffalo Bills 2004 rookie class has yet to take a snap on an NFL field, but they are already champions.

Marker NFL players give campers guidance on football and life [12:08 PM]

Marker Patriots still the cream of the AFC East crop [12:07 PM]
Northwest Arkansas Times reports: 'Among the AFC East alsorans, Buffalo will make the most improvement, albeit without Drew Bledsoe taking the snaps. I like Bledsoe, but letís face it, my lardulous physique could avoid the rush better. With cocky rookie QB J. P. Losman and new head coach Mike Mularkey at the helm, the Bills will undergo an attitude adjustment that translates into more wins on the field.'

Marker Buffalo Bills Training Camp History [7:19 PM] reports: 'The locker rooms at East Aurora High School were used by the team for dressing and training room facilities. The players were shuttled between hotel, locker room and practice fields by school bus, sometimes driven by players or team personnel.'

Marker These kids are ready to score points [6:24 PM]
The Sporting News reports: Because expectations were so high for the Bills' Mike Williams, the fourth overall pick of the 2002 draft, he has been perceived as a mild disappointment. Though Williams has been inconsistent, he has flashed dominance. Last season, for instance, he handled Jevon Kearse of the Titans. Williams has continued to get better, and his improvement should be accelerated this season. Playing next to him will be a rock in right guard Chris Villarrial, and coaching Williams will be Jim McNally, one of the best in the league.

June 28, 2004

Marker Evans, Krumrie now on the same page [12:17 PM]
Madison Capital Times reports: 'Make no mistake about it - Krumrie is a coach, a solid football coach, one of the most highly regarded defensive line coaches in the business. The Bills will have trouble holding on to him after his contract expires at the end of this season. He has friends all over the league, including LeBeau in Pittsburgh, Matt Millen in Detroit and Gregg Williams in Washington. Williams, who was fired by Buffalo at the end of last season, hired Krumrie away from the Bengals.'

Marker Peek at Bills is glimpse of good things [8:26 AM]
WGRZ-TV reports: 'Maybe itís that Mularkey was an NFL player, but the fact he instantly recognized that peer pressure could be more important than gratifying his own ego to get a result, showed insight I think will be appreciated and responded to by the current crop of Bills players.'
