Buffalo Bills News - November 29, 2004

Marker Lindell's trickery fools Seahawks [12:55 PM]
Vancouver Columbian reports: '"Personally, I was skeptical of the call when I heard we were going to do the onsides kick," Buffalo offensive guard Ross Tucket said, "but then we got the ball, and I thought it was the greatest kick ever."'

Marker Where Have These Bills Been All Year? [12:33 PM]
Erie Times News reports: 'Seattle was only able to gain 230 total yards of offense on the day compared with Buffalo’s 434. And 72 of their yards came on Seattle’s only touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter with the game already out of hand at 38-3. 38-3. 38-3. 38-3. 38-3. 38-3. 38-3. 38-3. 38-3. 38-3. 38-3. 38-3. 38-3. I can type that all day long.'

Marker Nothing fluky about this Bills win [12:10 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'However, eight teams are still ahead of them in the AFC standings, most of them at least three games ahead with only five to play. So this isn’t about the post-season ... it’s about the future. And something special is happening with this team.'

Marker Power trip [8:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills outgained the Seahawks, 434-230, and held the ball for 36:24.'

Marker Mularkey gives players some food for thought [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Maybe it was the cheeseburgers, or simply the law of averages. The Bills had won four straight home games. Sooner or later, they were bound to play a good game away from Ralph Wilson Stadium. But no one could have expected a victory of this magnitude. This was the Bills' most complete game of the season, home or road. It was Mularkey's finest hour as a head coach, a coaching clinic by the entire Buffalo staff.'

Marker Bills hogtie Alexander, clamp down on Hasselbeck [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I'm not surprised we shut them down," said Bills cornerback Nate Clements. "That's what I expect out of us. We practiced hard all week, watched a lot of film and got some good tips on them. With the players we've got, I wouldn't expect anything less."'

Marker Another bad break for Henry, this time in his right leg [8:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"For him to go down like that, my heart goes out to him," offensive tackle Mike Williams said. "Everybody in this locker room knows how hard Travis works, so it's tough to see something like that happen. But whatever it takes, I know he's going to work hard and he will come back because that's the kind of player he is."'

Marker Falling into place [8:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The playoffs are still a remote possibility, but suddenly a 9-7 finish seems like an achievable goal.'

Marker Grading the Bills [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Coaching: A+. Great mix of run and pass on offense. Jerry Gray had defense in all the right spots. Bills made it look easy.'

Marker Marv gets the job [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'In late October 1986, I received a telephone call from the general manager of the Bills. He informed me that the team's owner, Ralph Wilson, would like me to come visit with him at his home in Detroit. Four years earlier, I had interviewed with Ralph for the head coaching vacancy that had existed with the Bills at that time, and even though I didn't get the job then, I had liked the gentleman, and I had sensed that a healthy rapport existed between us.'

Marker Baffled by Buffalo [8:46 AM]
Bremerton Sun reports: 'The Seahawks were Buffalo's polar opposite. The defense and special teams got exposed by trick plays. The offense was again plagued by dropped passes and tipped balls. Even Holmgren, in his 13th year as an NFL head coach, got out-smarted by a man who has just 11 games of experience as a head coach at any level: Buffalo's Mike Mularkey.'

Marker Bills dismantle Seahawks, fans are quick to pile on [8:27 AM]
Portland Oregonian reports: 'Nothing went right for Seattle. Special teams again were a disaster, from the opening kickoff that went out of bounds to a successful onside kick by Buffalo's Rian Lindell to start the second half. The defense intercepted Drew Bledsoe three times but still gave up 38 points -- the most allowed by Seattle since a 38-14 loss at Oakland in September 2001. The 29-point losing margin was the biggest since a season-opening 41-3 loss to the New York Jets in 1997. And there's the offense.'

Marker Bills change the menu, and that does the trick [8:26 AM]
Portland Oregonian reports: 'There was a method to Mularkey's trickery. When he decided to go for it on fourth down with a 24-3 lead in the fourth quarter -- instead of kicking a 47-yard field goal -- the coach was looking to reinforce a message to his team. "I told them on the sideline we've got to finish games," Mularkey said. "We can't just go into a shell."'

Marker ‘We were just bad, man’ [6:19 AM]
Tacoma News Tribune reports: 'Willis McGahee’s 2-yard score marked the first time all season that Buffalo had scored an offensive touchdown on the road before the fourth quarter.'

Marker Bledsoe picks up where he left off at WSU [6:18 AM]
Tacoma News Tribune reports: 'He’s 32 now, more susceptible to the sack than ever but also smarter and more polished. The wonder isn’t that he completed 25-of-37 passes against the Seahawks for 275 yards. The wonder is why Bledsoe’s recent road work has been so spotty.'

Marker Four Bills enjoy a happy return [6:17 AM]
Tacoma News Tribune reports: 'The Buffalo Bills could not have scheduled a more accommodating homecoming opponent for Drew Bledsoe, Sam Adams, Rian Lindell and Lawyer Milloy. The Northwest-based foursome feasted on the Seattle Seahawks’ unending hospitality, leaving Qwest Field with a 38-9 victory and scrapbooks filled with memories.'

Marker Sinking Seahawks exposed by aggressive Buffalo attack [6:16 AM]
King County Journal reports: 'It was the Bills playing the bully to Seattle's sissy act. Maybe the Hawks weren't wearing heels, but they certainly were on theirs all day long against a deceptively tough AFC foe.'

Marker Bills stomp Seattle [5:05 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'If only Drew Bledsoe's New England homecomings all turned out this well, the Buffalo Bills would be in the thick of the playoff chase.'

Marker A master plan that Mularkey can relish [5:04 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Talk about a cheeseburger in paradise.'

Marker Bills are building a solid future [5:03 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'There is honest-to-goodness optimism resonating from One Bills Drive because after a disastrous 0-4 start that will ultimately ruin this season, the Bills have begun to play like the team many of us thought they were back in the summer at St. John Fisher College.'

Marker Two-minute read [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Bills RB Willis McGahee: He had his finest day as a pro with 116 rushing yards and four touchdowns. Many of his runs were stopped for short gains or no gains, but great backs keep plugging and eventually they break out, and McGahee did.'

Marker Report Card [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Mike Mularkey and Tom Clements came to Buffalo with a reputation for creative play-calling and it was on display in Seattle. The reverse to Evans out of that formation was nifty, the pitch back to McGahee on fourth down that resulted in a TD was brilliant, and the onside kick — Bobby April's brainchild — was a well-timed gamble that worked.'

Marker The worst in first [5:00 AM]
Seattle Post Intelligencer reports: 'On the Bills' first five scoring drives, Bledsoe was 20 of 26 for 222 yards. On third downs, he was 9 of 11 for 95 yards, including completions of 24 and 16 yards. "He's a big-time quarterback," said Hamlin, who had two interceptions. "He's been in the league for a while and he knows how to read defenses and that type of stuff. So he did a good job."'

Marker Bills crush Hawks on road to respectability [4:59 AM]
Seattle Post Intellignencer reports: 'The on-side kick to start the second half took nearly everyone but kicker Rian Lindell and the Bills' special teams unit by surprise. The former Seahawks and Washington State kicker lightly nudged the ball forward, following its every bounce until it went the required 10 yards and Lindell pounced on it, the first time he had ever recovered one of his own. "We practice a bunch of those type kicks in the offseason and in training camp, so we always have it in the back of our minds," Lindell said.'

Marker Victory is Walla Walla sweet [4:58 AM]
Seattle Post Intelligencer reports: 'Apparently some people think he's fading, that, at 32, Bledsoe is not as capable as he was before. I know this because John Clayton said as much before the game.'

Marker Seahawks vs. Bills: Game in review [4:57 AM]
Seattle Post Intelligencer reports: 'Game balls: Offense - Drew Bledsoe.'

Marker Buffaloed! [4:56 AM]
Seattle Times reports: 'The Bills moved the ball at will out of a no-huddle offense that the Seahawks swore was not a surprise, and had outgained the Seahawks 154 to 24 in total yardage after one quarter.'

Marker Bledsoe wins homecoming game [4:55 AM]
Seattle Times reports: 'The defining play of this game (for the Bills) and this day (for Bledsoe) came with 10 seconds left in the first half. The Bills were out of timeouts and facing a third-and-three at the Seahawks' 3-yard line.'

Marker Adams can't fathom Hawks [4:54 AM]
Seattle Times reports: 'Adams the former Seahawk didn't place any emphasis on throttling Seattle 38-9 yesterday afternoon. "It's not about me," he said, after recording one tackle. "It's about the team."'

Marker Oops! [4:53 AM]
Everett Herald reports: 'Buffalo opened the game with a no-huddle offense that drove 60 yards in 10 plays to take a 7-0 lead. The key third-down conversion on that drive came on a roll-right, throw-back-left screen play that looked like it had been plucked straight from the playbooks of nearby Lackawanna High.'
