Marker Bills QB Losman hopes to reverse downward spiral [5:01 AM]
Baton Rouge Advocate reports: '"We started off on a high note and we've just kind of gotten into a funk here," Losman said this week. "I've just got to go out there and play and throw the ball like I know how to with some authority, throw it with some confidence, not trying to be too perfect, trying to aim the ball a little bit, trying not to miss as opposed to just throwing it and having that confidence to know that you're not going to miss and if you do miss, oh well, just get it the next play."'

Marker Wire And Williams Still Not On The Field [2:39 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Mike Williams and Coy Wire are still not at practice this week. Mike Mularkey said on Friday he'll see how they are on Sunday. Williams hasn't practiced in two weeks so I'd be shocked to see him in uniform.'

Marker Bills' offense must get on track early against Saints [12:18 PM] reports: 'As for the outcome, it all depends on whether the Buffalo Buffalo's passing game can exploit the Saints' depleted secondary, and if Buffalo's run defense can actually stop someone for a change. However, if the Saints defense and running game step up, it should be an easy day for them in Texas.'

Marker Rush to judgment [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Pat Williams' name has popped up often since the Buffalo Bills' defense got run over by Tampa Bay and Atlanta. Edwards has yet to make anyone forget about Williams, who went to Minnesota via free agency.'

Marker Losman disappointed over relocated game against Saints [5:12 PM]
AP reports: 'What's especially disappointing for Losman is the fact most of his former Green Wave teammates were going to be on hand. Tulane coach Chris Scelfo was planning on giving the team the day off to see their former leader run the Bills' offense -- Tulane was scheduled to play Southeast Louisiana in the Superdome on Saturday.'

Marker TV blackout lifted for game [5:12 PM]
AP reports: 'The NFL lifted the blackout on the Buffalo-New Orleans game Sunday at the Alamodome, allowing the San Antonio CBS affiliate to carry the contest.'

Marker Mistakes to Be Corrected on Run Defense [4:48 PM] reports: '"Me personally, being a middle linebacker, when an opponent rushes over 100 yards I take it personal," said London Fletcher. "That's what I do, stop the run. There was a 60-yard run right before the half [against Atlanta] that you just can't have. That's unacceptable."'

Marker Bills rookie WR Parrish getting closer to return [4:31 PM]
AP reports: 'Bills receiver Roscoe Parrish, who suffered an injury to his right wrist in training camp last month, is still two to three weeks away from being ready to play, Buffalo coach Mike Mularkey said Thursday.'

Marker Bills vs. Saints [1:46 PM]
WIVB-TV reports: 'The Saints will win this game 27-20.'

Marker Haslett trying to endure a stormy start for Saints [12:16 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Haslett’s Saints will play in their home-away-from home Sunday, for the first time. “I don’t know what to expect ... hopefully it’s gonna be 65,000,” he said, of the crowd and the Alamodome’s capacity. “I just know they probably won’t be cheering for Buffalo, so at least we won’t have to deal with the crowd noise we’ve dealt with the last three weeks.”'

Marker Crowell gets a chance to prove himself [11:35 AM]
Niagara Gazette reports: '"We need Angelo to come in and play hard," Milloy said. "I think everybody understands what we expect from each individual. We don't single out one particular person or another, that's divide and conquer. We expect that he understands his role."'

Marker Bills LB Crowell ready to replace Spikes [10:43 AM]
AP reports: 'Angelo Crowell has lost the flashy earrings and now has his ball cap on straight. The Buffalo Bills third-year linebacker decided before the start of the season that if he was going to be a professional, he might as well start looking the part.'

Marker Ezekiel signs with Buffalo Bills [10:43 AM] reports: 'The Buffalo Bills announced Wednesday that Northeastern’s former three-time All-America linebacker, Liam Ezekiel, has been added to the Buffalo Bills’ 53-man roster while injured LB Takeo Spikes has been placed on injured reserve.'

Marker Bills defense dared to dream but has missed the mark [10:42 AM] reports: 'For instance, all-pro corner Nate Clements seems more concerned about getting paid than winning games. He even stated back in July that he would accept no less than being the highest-paid corner in the NFL. I guess we'll have to wait for the free agency period in the off-season to see how Clements' situation pans out. Before Nate revealed his true agenda, Bills safety Lawyer Milloy was cut by Patriots' head coach Bill Belichick. Why? Because he cared more about his payday than he did winning titles and was too selfish to live with the millions of dollars that he was already raking in. Big mistake considering New England has won three titles in a four year span, and could very well be on their way to yet another. And, with the loss of their best player, Takeo Spikes, it seems that the Bills' goal of being a legendary defense has faded away into the blue skies of Buffalo. There's always next year.'

Marker Saints know their mission statement [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It's just an unfortunate incident that the hurricane hit, that it devastated the region, ruined a lot of peoples' lives, and we happened to be in the middle of it," Haslett said on a conference call Wednesday. "Hopefully we can play better, we can do some things to turn this around, because one thing they do have (in Louisiana), they love football. They love the Saints, they love LSU, and I think it does give people a little hope if we do play well."'

Marker Rookie Ezekiel replaces Spikes on roster [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I told him he can keep our morale up and don't let it end at the halftime speech," said Bills coach Mike Mularkey, referring to the fact Spikes urged on his teammates during Sunday's Atlanta game. "He's probably more important now for us even though he's not on the field. We can sure use the support from him, and his teammates have so much respect for him."'

Marker Bills made huge investment in Losman [7:02 AM]
New Orleans Times Picayune reports: '“He ain’t no Donovan McNabb, or Michael Vick, or Daunte Culpepper,’’ Saints defensive end Charles Grant said. “Once he sees people in his face he wants to get the ball out of his hands. So we got to keep that pressure on him. We got to come at him full force with the blitzes and schemes that we have.’’ “He’s not a real running threat,’’ Saints cornerback Fakhir Brown said. “They like to roll him out and let him throw it. His best ball is a deep ball, like throwing a fade. I think we can put pressure on him because he’s not a really good drop-back passer. He can get the ball to the slot receiver pretty good but when he throws to the outside they got to roll him out.’’'

Marker Unease in Buffalo [5:56 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'As it so often does -- and misguided as it can be -- the raging flashpoint for debate begins with the quarterback.'

Marker Wyche helps Losman weather storm [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"It's a natural process that's going on right now for a young quarterback, and Sam has experienced it. At least he can say, 'Hey, back when this happened,' and you know he's gone through it. It's not like he's experiencing it at the same time J.P. is."'

Marker Linebacker Crowell gets chance to start [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'While nobody at One Bills Drive is saying that the Bills won't miss a beat without Spikes — the undisputed defensive leader and locker room Gen. Patton — it's clear just how confident the team is in Crowell.'

Marker Horn says NFL used Saints to score points with public [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"Man, let me tell you something: The Saints aren't going to be the first team they make a mockery of, and we will not be the last team they make a mockery of," Horn said in a conference call Wednesday. "Believe that. Nobody is bigger than the NFL. And whoever the commissioner is calls the shots. It's as simple as that."'
