Buffalo Bills News - November 15, 2004

Marker Pats ride herd over Buffalo [12:51 PM]
Brockton Enterprise reports: 'Buffalo Bills rookie Jonathan Smith had some heartwarming plans for the football he returned 70 yards for the first touchdown of his NFL career. "I'll keep the ball," Smith told reporters Sunday night, "and send it home to my mom." As for the rest of the night? Put it this way: If you're from Buffalo, hide the women and children.'

Marker Another exit on Rt. 1 for Bledsoe [12:50 PM]
Brockton Enterprise reports: '"They're a good team, a very good team obviously,'' said Bledsoe. "You look at what they've done over the past few years. When you come in here, the No. 1 thing you have to do is protect the ball. You can't turn it over and expect to win. The first-half turnovers, you can't give them those plays. We didn't really challenge their corners very much. They were playing cover-2 mostly. They protected those guys and did a good job in their zone drops.'''

Marker Drew who? [12:49 PM]
Lowell Sun reports: 'The Bills did manage to hold Adam Vinatieri without a touchdown pass, but Vinatieri still kicked five field goals, hitting from 27, 24, 20, 45 and 37 yards while going over 1,000 points for his nine-year career.'

Marker Bledsoe kissed, dissed, dismissed [12:48 PM] reports: The Cold, Hard Football Facts tossed dirt on the coffin of Drew Bledsoe’s career earlier this season. After a dreadful performance in Sunday’s 29-6 loss to New England the “pundits” are dancing on the grave.

Marker Pats pick on Bledsoe again [9:32 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It was so bad for Bledsoe he was intercepted by wide receiver Troy Brown, substituting as a cornerback.'

Marker Losman gets in the game, and struggles [9:24 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'A sack, one lost fumble and an interception wasn't the debut rookie quarterback J.P. Losman had in mind. He can only hope it gets better from here.'

Marker Foxboro flop [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills received a drubbing at the hands of the New England Patriots that can be summed up in one word: embarrassing.'

Marker Latest road test yields all-too-familiar result [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Here's a little statistic to enliven an otherwise dreary, depressing Monday: The Bills have played four nationally televised, Sunday night ESPN games in the Tom Donahoe era, and they've lost all four by a combined score of 119-18.'

Marker What A Cakewalk [7:49 AM] reports: 'Before I try and describe to just how far the former Patriot star has dropped off, let me just say that he does not deserve this fate. He is a decent man, a class act and a good quarterback at times. He could have easily divided the team during the 2001 season but he put his personal feelings aside for the good of the team and it brought the Patriots their first championship. But yeesh, has he become predictable or what?'

Marker Gillette Becoming Buffalo Football Purgatory [7:48 AM] reports: 'This baby wasn’t close at any time. Three of the first four offensive drives by the Patriots went for 81, 91, 75 and 70 yards. Three of those drives ended in very short Adam Vinatieri field goals. Normally, this practice of settling for field goals can hurt a team, and the only thing the Bills did consistently well was to stop the Patriots inside the Buffalo 10. Instead, the Patriots merely did what they do against Bledsoe, and took McGahee out of his game completely.'

Marker Nothing fancy, but it's a win [7:39 AM]
Portland Press Herald reports: '"Just basically we wanted to stop the run, play physically and not give up any cheap balls down the field," said safety Rodney Harrison. "And just do our job, play hard-nosed football. We knew they wanted to get McGahee going, and we were stuck on not letting him get going. And he didn't."'

Marker You just had to feel sorry for Bledsoe [7:37 AM]
Portland Press Herald reports: 'Drew. Drew. It has come to this. Eight of 19 passes completed for 76 yards. Too many times he threw to the wrong guy. Drew. Drew.'

Marker Sunday night stinker [5:52 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'In its last four night games Buffalo has now been outscored 119-18, and on this clear and frosty Massachusetts night, the only cable network the Bills belonged on was Comedy Central.'

Marker Report card [5:51 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Drew Bledsoe had a QB rating of 14.3. What more do you need to know?'

Marker Home rule [5:51 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'The only positive for the Bills, who had only eight first downs, converted no third downs in seven attempts, and were outgained in net yards, 428-125, was a 70-yard punt return in the third quarter by Jonathan Smith, which ruined New England's shutout bid.'

Marker Missions are accomplished [5:50 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'And then there was the somewhat sorrowful case of Bledsoe, New England's former franchise quarterback. Even though opposed by a severely compromised New England secondary (definition: no Ty Law and no Tyrone Poole), Bledsoe went a meager 8 for 19 with his passes and totaled but 76 yards.'

Marker Brown hooks up with Bledsoe again [5:49 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'Last night at Gillette Stadium, the pair was reunited on a pass play that once again brought joy to the Patriots faithful, but, oh, how different the circumstances were from days gone by.'

Marker Touted opponent simply not up for the challenge [5:49 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'Respective quarterback ratings: Brady, 102.7; Bledsoe, 7.7.'

Marker The end is here for once-great Bledsoe [5:48 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'The end came, for all intents and purposes, at 11:20 last night.'

Marker Pats don't pal around with Bledsoe, Buffalo [5:45 AM]
Boston Herald reports: '``Drew's a good friend of mine and I love the guy to death. But football can be bittersweet and crappy,'' said kicker Adam Vinatieri [news], sounding a note of pity that permeated the Patriots' locker room. ``We tried to make it hard on him the best we could. Bill finds a way to throw a wrinkle every time that puts a little pressure on him.'''

Marker Brown picks on Drew [5:45 AM]
Boston Herald reports: 'Brown was lined up in the slot opposite the Bills' best receiver, Eric Moulds, on first-and-10 from the Buffalo 38 with 14:05 to play in the fourth quarter. He dropped back in coverage, slipped in front of Moulds and made the first interception of his 13-year NFL career.'

Marker Dillon takes toll on Bills [5:44 AM]
Boston Herald reports: '``That's a great defense and I've got a lot of respect for those guys. They play hard. I know a lot of guys over there and that's a tough team. When you get a 100 on them, it's well deserved. We just kept applying what we wanted to do, run the ball, get upfield, and go north and south with it, and we came up with some big plays.'''

Marker Another Lawyer letdown [5:43 AM]
Boston Herald reports: '``That's the most frustrating thing, playing the way we did (last night),'' said Milloy, who celebrated his 31st birthday yesterday. ``We have to go back to the drawing board today and realize why we got beat. We have to go back to doing what this team does best.'''

Marker Drew hasn't a clue [5:42 AM]
Boston Herald reports: '``There's not really much to say,'' Bledsoe said with his usual stoicism. ``We got beat. We didn't throw it well enough, we didn't run it well enough, and we didn't put enough points on the board.'''

Marker It's official: Cover's good [5:41 AM]
Boston Herald reports: 'So thanks, Drew, for another stinker at The Razor. Come back any time - we'll bet on the Pats and buy you dinner.'

Marker Second helping for Patriots [5:40 AM]
Metro West Daily News reports: 'But truly, the game turned in the second quarter.'

Marker Bledsoe is sinking [5:40 AM]
Metro West Daily News reports: 'Prior to last night's game, Bledsoe had put up the following numbers against the Patriots: 1-4 record, 107-of-183 passing for 1,190 yards, 5 touchdowns, 8 interceptions, while being sacked 18 times. Toss in last night's debacle and the numbers look even worse.'

Marker No end to this victory tour [5:39 AM]
Metro West Daily News reports: 'Life ain't fair, Drew.'

Marker Pats have the run of things [5:38 AM]
Providence Journal reports: 'Even though the Bills are a road-challenged outfit, this was even more lopsided than anticipated. But pregame promise of a competitive game vanished quickly as the Patriots bottled-up ballyhooed back Willis McGahee (11 carries, 36 first-half yards) and marshaled three long scoring drives against the normally stingy Bills' defense.'

Marker Improved Buffalo no match for Patriots [5:38 AM]
Providence Journal reports: '"We just did not play well enough to beat anybody tonight, especially a team that just doesn't make mistakes," he said. "We jut didn't play well all around. Period."'
