Buffalo Bills News - July 26, 2005

Marker Living a dream [10:49 AM]
Reading Eagle reports: '“Until I'm told differently, my mindset is that I'm going to compete at left guard,” said Tucker. “I know they signed Bennie, but I'm still going to give everything I have to earn that starting job. As far as me moving to center or some other position, that's something they would have to decide based on what happens at other positions. But my mindset is the same as it is every training camp, which is that I want to earn a starting job for opening day.”'

Marker Bills defense aims for 'legendary' tag [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We want to make sure nothing happens to our starters, but if it does can the other guys hold up?" Gray said. "That's what we need to find out. I don't want to see them play against second-team guys because they're on that level. I want to see them step up against opponents' starters because you don't want any part of your defense to take a hit with a young guy because of his inexperience."'

Marker 2005 Green Bay vs. Buffalo Scrimmage [7:13 AM] reports: '8 p.m. -- NFL Preseason Scrimmage: 2005 Green Bay vs. Buffalo Scrimmage - The Buffalo Bills visit Lambeau Field on Packer Night to take on Green Bay in front of a capacity crowd for the first-ever televised preseason scrimmage on the NFL Network.'

Marker Sportservice Has Jobs Openings for Bills Games [5:38 AM]
WGRZ-TV reports: 'The Delaware North subsidiary is looking for people to fill a variety of positions. Those include servers for suites, clubs and catering, food and beverage runners for clubs, supervisors, sous chefs, porters, stand attendants, kitchen prep and those with any type of cooking experience.'

Marker Defense Looks To Dominate [5:37 AM] reports: 'The defensive unit of the Bills has been very solid the past two years as they finished both the 2003 and 2004 season ranked second in the league. The unit will have the same scheme under the tutelage of Jerry Gray for the third year in a row and they return 10 of 11 starters. That is a recipe for continued success but the players are not resting on their laurels.'

Marker Normalcy returns to local sports [5:42 PM]
Niagara Falls Reporter reports: 'And after eight months of talk about salary caps, revenue linkage and the protracted departures of Drew Bledsoe and Travis Henry, it'll be nice to have the sports world back to normal.'

Marker Losman Brings New Offensive Style [4:44 PM] reports: The Bills head into training camp with unbridled optimism about the coming season. They return a fantastic defense almost totally intact and a shining special teams unit. On offense they have many weapons but two big question marks on that side of the ball threaten their goal of making it to the playoffs for the first time in five season.

Marker April's Unit Primed for Special Season [4:44 PM] reports: 'Plus, the Bills became the first team to score five touchdowns on special teams since the Chicago Cardinals accomplished the feat in 1959 (the year of the first goalie mask in hockey and the announcement of a new pro football team in Buffalo).'

Marker NFL 101 - in Rochester, NY [4:43 PM] reports: Join members of the Buffalo Bills staff, alumni and players for this interactive football workshop designed for women to benefit the United Way of Greater Rochester through Women United. You will learn the X's and O's of football, and then hit the field with Bills players and alumni.

Marker Bills' offense looks to apply what it's learned [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"This is probably the best group of receivers going into a camp that I've been associated with," Clements said. "Each of them has good qualities. Unfortunately, you can only keep a certain number, but the competition will make us a better team. It's going to be a difficult cut, but those are the kind of difficult decisions you like because that means you're going to end up with a pretty good player."'

Marker Inside slant [7:02 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Lee may have the slight edge based on talent. "He's a big back," Donahoe said of Lee. "He's more of a downhill-type runner, more of an explosive kind of runner, and when he got some opportunities in Dallas he did well. He was very good in the off-season program. We made sure coming here he understood he was going to have to do more than just carry the football. He was going to have to be involved on special teams and do whatever we asked him to do to contribute to the team. He's been on board with that."'

Marker Strategy and personnel [7:01 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'He's no Michael Vick, but Bills QB J.P. Losman is no turtle when it comes to flat-out running speed. At the combine workout before the 2004 draft, the former Tulane star clocked consistently in the 4.6 range in the 40-yard dash.'

Marker Notes, quotes [7:00 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"We made it clear to the teams [that] if somebody [was] willing to step up and give us a solid third, we [would] do the deal," general manager Tom Donahoe said. "A couple teams said, 'What if you get two offers for a third-round pick?' I said our inclination would be to take who offered it to us first."'

July 24, 2005

Marker 'Wide Open' Battle for Bills Third WR [7:52 PM] reports: 'Reed knows that it's likely a make-or-break year for him with the Bills as his rookie contract comes to a close. And he finds himself with more competition as well, as the team used its first pick in the 2005 draft to take speedy wideout Roscoe Parrish in the second round.'

Marker Tight End Depth Chart Looks Promising [7:52 PM] reports: '"I think I'll be close to 100 percent," Campbell said about how he should be feeling by August. "The only thing that's going to make me 100 percent will be playing in games. That will be the deciding factor. Whether I'm 90, 95, or 100 percent, it's how well I can take a hit or how well I can get extra yardage after a hit and really get in the whole scheme of blocking somebody in a game situation. That's when I'll really be able to tell you that. But I'll definitely be good enough to go, I know that. And I feel good about where I'm at. I realize as the season goes on my knee is going to get better and stronger."'

Marker Keeping it real [8:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The fact he's handsome, a Southern Californian and usually is seen dressing down leads Bills fans to one thought: Rob Johnson. It's an allusion that won't go away, because the scar from Johnson'stenure in Buffalo still exists on the psyche of Bills fans.'

Marker Losman finds Buffalo to be a 'grind it out' town [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"The main differences I see are Venice is a small area but the community is not as tight as the community here in Buffalo. L.A. is so big and there's so much more to do, so many more roads that lead you so many other places. Here in Buffalo it seems like everyone here has each other's back. Everyone knows pretty much everything about everybody. There are rumors in the town everyone knows.'

Marker Cyber-experts take their shots at forecasting Bills' fate [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The game is still played on the field.'

Marker Despite changes, Patriots still class of AFC East [7:26 AM] reports: 'Buffalo's defense and special teams are playoff caliber, and the Bills are strong at running back (McGahee) and receiver. The biggest question marks -- and the reasons why they might not make the playoffs -- are their inexperienced quarterback and their reshuffled offensive line.'

Marker Jags could be richer without payoff to Bills [4:09 PM]
Florida Times Union reports: 'This was much more about the Buffalo Bills trading Henry to a team they felt would be less competitive for an AFC wild-card berth than the Jaguars spinning their wheels. Besides, hadn't the Jaguars already won a landslide decision over Buffalo in 1998 by swindling a first-round pick (which turned out to be Taylor) for Rob Johnson?'

Marker Titans have challenge of balancing backs' loads [5:31 PM]
ESPN reports: 'Henry forced his way out of Buffalo, after losing his starting job to Willis McGahee in 2004, because he wasn't inclined to play second fiddle. But history has demonstrated that it's difficult in the NFL to keep one back happy while the other gets most of the carries. So how long will Henry, who despite signing a four-year contract extension isn't going to earn a dime more in Nashville in '05 than he was scheduled to make in Buffalo, bite his tongue if he is logging, say, only six carries a game? Or will Brown, who has missed five games in each of his first two seasons, chafe if Henry knocks him from his No. 1 perch on the depth chart?'

Marker Bills put their faith in untested Losman [4:29 PM]
NBC Sports reports: 'Prediction: Second.'

Marker Whatever happened to Kent Hull? [4:16 PM]
Delta Democrat Times reports: 'Being away from his native Mississippi didn't bother Hull. Instead, he got to love western New York. Except for the heaps of snow that dump on Buffalo every winter, Hull said western New York is a lot like Mississippi. "When people in the South think New York, they think New York City," Hull said. "But western and upstate New York has very friendly people much like the Delta with strong emphasis on farming. People don't know that farmers in New York grow soybeans and corn. It's a huge agricultural community. As for the snow, you adapt to it. We've all had good times in the snow up there."'

Marker Bills May See Change at Nickel Position [2:48 PM] reports: '"I would say overall we'll be a better group from top to bottom than we were a year ago," Szabo said. "A year ago we had an unsettled situation at safety, which was compounded by the fact that Lawyer broke his arm. With Milloy healthy and now having moved Troy Vincent to free safety, we should be a little more consistent. … and our corners are both the same and both went to the Pro Bowl. They're very good players."'

Marker Ten Burning Questions: AFC East [12:54 PM]
CNN/SI reports: 'Is second-year QB J.P. Losman ready to lead Buffalo's offense?'

July 21, 2005

Marker Packers and Bills will bang helmets [5:33 PM]
The Sporting News reports: '"It helps speed up the process of getting into camp," Mularkey says. "It's an extra preseason game without calling it one, which is important, especially for us with a first-year starting quarterback. As many opportunities as you can get against an opponent where everything isn't scripted, the better."'

Marker McGahee Set for a Full Season as Starter [4:15 PM] reports: '"There's no question he's been working out," Mularkey said. "You can tell physically he's a specimen. I know that group down there, they work hard. There's a number of them that have a strict workout and you can tell he's been working out. He's in [good] physical condition."'

Marker Defense Wants to Be ‘All-Time’ [4:14 PM] reports: '"We have high goals set for ourselves," said defensive captain London Fletcher. "It goes beyond just wanting to be number one in the league. Our goal is to be the greatest defense of all time."'

Marker Jaguars dropped ball on Travis Henry trade [2:42 PM]
Brunswick News reports: 'With all the questions surrounding Fred Taylor's knee and whether he'll be ready, an insurance policy like Henry may have been a little pricey, but worth it. If Taylor cannot be the player we've come to expect the past couple of seasons (and there's no way to tell what's happening in J'Ville right now, with Jack Del Rio trying to control the flow of info surrounding the team like he was head of a Communist state), that will do nothing but put more pressure on quarterback Byron Leftwich to carry the offense in his third season.'

Marker Cornerback ready to grab NFL job [2:39 PM]
Owings Mills Times reports: '"It's difficult to get rookies to settle down," Buffalo Assistant General Manager Tom Modrak said. "They are in awe of things. He came in with a great deal of confidence because he can make plays. He was intense about everything. He was very good at minicamp."'
