Buffalo Bills News - October 1, 2004

Marker Wilfork eager to see ex-mate McGahee [5:03 AM]
Boston Herald reports: '``We're like brothers,'' said Wilfork. ``We're both excited to play against each other. It's going to be fun. It's going to be interesting. Just to see him play is a blessing. And I'm proud of him. But we're on opposite ends this week. I'm going to get a chance to hit him, but nothing is going to affect our friendship.'''

Marker Bledsoe armed and dangerous [5:02 AM]
Woonsocket Call reports: 'Bledsoe’s also been sacked eight times -- partly because his offensive line is awful, and partly because he moves slower than a glacier in the pocket. The sack totals jump off the page and raise an interesting theory: Has the influx of quicker, more mobile quarterbacks like Michael Vick, Donovan McNabb and Steve McNair made the old-school, drop-back passers like Bledsoe obsolete?'

Marker Former player works out with Bills [5:01 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'Former Florida Atlantic right tackle Ken Campos had a workout with the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday.'

Marker Recipe for Success [10:11 PM] reports: '“The NFL and professional football ain't something where you can just buy a bunch of all-stars and automatically they're going to be good,” Bills center Trey Teague explained. Obviously they've got quality players at a lot of positions, some super stars, but they definitely play well as a team. That's what makes them as good as they are."'

Marker The Bills And Patriots Will Be On TV [5:07 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Chris Villarrial did return to individual drills on Thursday. Mike Pucillo was still watching from the side with a sore back.'

Marker Buffalo hopes to continue its post-bye success [5:02 PM]
The Sports Network reports: '"This game is a great opportunity for us to gain back some confidence," wide receiver Eric Moulds said. "If we can beat the Super Bowl champions than we can prove to ourselves that we can play with anybody. This is a big game for us this week. It's a division opponent and we want to be able to make a statement in our division."'

Marker Bills vs. Patriots Sold Out [5:02 PM] reports: 'This week's game is the 10th straight sellout for the Bills.'

Marker Bills defense faces unpredictable Patriots offense [5:01 PM]
AP reports: '''You never know which identity they're going to come with,'' Bills safety Coy Wire said of New England, the team Buffalo hosts on Sunday. ''They have their no-back offense, two-back running game. They have multiple identities. It's just a matter of preparing for all of them.'''

Marker Belichick has plenty of reasons to smile [1:04 PM]
Tonawanda News reports: '“He never ceases to amaze us as far as motivational techniques are concerned,” Law said of Belichick, who took his team to see the movie “Antarctica” a few years back. “He hasn’t done anything yet this year, but I know he’ll do something special.”'

Marker Bills Games a Priority at Billy Bean's [1:03 PM] reports: '"We get a good mix of all fans, but the Bills section probably has the biggest fan base," he said. "Everybody knows we're the place to watch Bills games at."'

Marker Pats on a Roll, Head to Orchard Park [1:02 PM] reports: '"The only streak we're concerned with is our wins and losses," Bills center Trey Teague said. "We can't be worrying about anybody but ourselves. We need to play a tough game this week and get a win."'

Marker Pats' streak among most impressive [1:02 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'However, New England coach Bill Belichick offers a simpler version.
“If the Patriots win the game,” he said, “it’s because the players have gone out and made a few more plays than the team they’re playing against. All of the games we’ve won, that’s been the case."

Marker Bledsoe now in Brady's shadow [1:01 PM]
Brockton Enterprise reports: '"Some of the things that we're doing are preventing us from being continuously successful," Bledsoe continued. "We're trying to establish ourselves as a power-running football team. In order to do that, we have to convert our first downs. In order to convert our first downs, we can't be in third-and-10, third-and-12 all the time because your percentages go way down, particularly against the Patriots because that's where they're most effective."'

Marker Buffalo can't wing it on steals [1:00 PM]
Quincy Patriot Ledger reports: 'Turnovers. Put simply, the Patriots force 'em and the Bills don't.'

Marker Drew who? [12:59 PM]
Lowell Sun reports: 'Drew knew.'

Marker Bledsoe: an NFL never-was [12:58 PM] reports: The Cold, Hard Football Facts admire the respect accorded Bledsoe in Boston. But they’re not slaves to misty-eyed public sentiment, and they certainly don’t attempt to swim against a torrent of historical data buoyed only by a skimpy life vest called respect.

Marker Fear's no factor for Patriots [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"They just don't make a lot of mistakes, which allows you to win the close games," Buffalo Bills coach Mike Mularkey said Wednesday. "That's the difference with where we are. We've been in a couple close games and not overcome the mistakes we've created ourselves. You don't see them doing that."'

Marker A quick return? Losman feels it in his bones [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'A plate was inserted on Losman's fractured fibula in order to speed up the recovery process. X-rays this week on the broken bone showed he was progressing faster than what was predicted.'

Marker Bills nothing but a joke to Belichick [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The book is not written in his own words, of course. Belichick is too shrewd for that. But it's a reflection of his true feelings. It's his way of rubbing it in people's faces. It's no laughing matter for Bills fans, I'd imagine, knowing he's basically right.'

Marker Bledsoe gives Pats high praise [8:52 AM]
Nashua Telegraph reports: '“In the climate we’re in in the league now, with free agency and the salary cap, they’ve done a tremendous job of keeping their core guys intact and also bringing in young players who have been able to be immediately effective for them. So if there’s a great team in the league, I would think the Patriots would be the one everybody would look at.”'

Marker Belichick turns up the heat [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"If you need this (for motivation), you aren't much of a player," linebacker Takeo Spikes said. "But everything extra is a bonus."'

Marker Losman making quick recovery [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I'm way ahead of schedule," Losman said on Wednesday at Ralph Wilson Stadium. "The swelling is more down than they thought it would be at this point, the bone is growing back more than they anticipated. I could see it myself on the X-ray."'

Marker Making things interesting [4:57 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'Relevant or not, the book isn't a work of fiction given Belichick's track record of mastering Bledsoe. Since the trade, New England's only setback against Buffalo was a 31-0 thrashing in last year's season opener at the Ralph.'

Marker Patriots have memory to feel sorry about [4:56 AM]
Boston Globe reports: '"I don't think that there were many good plays out there," Brady said. "From the quarterback position, I threw four picks. We couldn't get in on any goal-line situations. We didn't score a point. We were shut out for the first time in 10 or 12 years. It was just embarrassing. We played terribly. I played terribly and I still remember that game."'

Marker Pats tackle Drew [4:55 AM]
Boston Herald reports: '``If we do the little things right - if we are clean in our blitz pickups, if we are crisp in our routes and execution - then those plays are going to start to happen for us,'' he said. ``But when we miss some of those little, simple things, then the big things just simply don't happen. When we do that, then you will see the numbers start to come up for us as an offense. But until we correct those little mistakes, those things just simply aren't going to happen.'''

Marker Buffalo debacle still fresh [4:54 AM]
Boston Herald reports: '``We got embarrassed on that field,'' Brady said yesterday. ``We're going back to the same environment, under different circumstances, but with the same feelings we had last time. Hopefully, we're more prepared than we were last year and hopefully we go out and play better than we did last year. If we don't, it could be the same outcome. I don't think any of us felt very good after that game and I think a lot of the guys in the locker room still remember that game very well. Every time you see the tape of that game, you cringe.'''

Marker Watch out for Bills' tricks [4:53 AM]
Metro West Daily News reports: 'With the Bills' offense sputtering -- having totaled 10 points apiece in each of their two losses -- there's reason to think gadget plays might become a greater part of their plan. They also serve as a counter-punch when defenses are in attack mode. "The whole basis behind all those plays is to (exploit) either over-aggression or something they saw on film the opposing team wasn't adjusting to," Vrabel said.'

Marker Winless Buffalo built around ‘D’ [4:52 AM]
Woonsocket Call reports: 'Although they’re 0-2, the Bills have given up just 13 points in each of their first two games and have allowed a pair of touchdowns -- both on passes. They’re also No. 1 in the league in run defense.'

Marker Fans have Bledsoe, Bills on hot seat [4:51 AM]
Providence Journal reports: '"The people here are fed up with the offense," said Sal Maiorana, who covers the team for The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. "It's not two games, it's two years. It's gotten to the point where they're frustrated with Bledsoe. He can't move or make a play. The offensive line can't protect him and they can't run-block. The expectations are higher with [the coaching changes. The expectation was that they'd be better, and they haven't done anything. People are at wits' end. There is some pressure for the Bills to perform, and they know it. Their season is close to going down the drain three games in."'
