Marker Defensive linemen impress Krumrie at UW pro day [5:01 AM]
Wisconsin State Journal reports: 'Having just watched his defensive line coach put six NFL draft hopefuls through something that from now on should simply be called "The Krumrie Drill," Buffalo Bills coach Mike Mularkey found himself wondering if maybe 44-year-old Tim Krumrie should still be playing the position instead of coaching it.'

Marker Snapping point [5:00 AM]
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports: 'Former UW All-American defensive tackle Tim Krumrie, the defensive line coach of the Buffalo Bills, tested the strength and staying power of six former UW defensive linemen with a personalized drill. Krumrie and each player stood upright, face to face, and basically engaged in several minutes of hand-to-hand combat. Krumrie's goal is to measure the character and fight of each player.'

Marker Athleticism on display at UW Pro Timing Day [4:59 AM]

Marker Former Venice Quarterback Gets Great Slot [9:50 PM]
Santa Monica Mirror reports: 'His talent was so evident that when he went to a UCLA football camp he was immediately offered a scholarship. But he didn't stay long. There were reports that Bruin coaches thought his footwork was poor, and other reports that he wanted to operate from a shotgun formation where his running ability would be maximized. In any case, Coach Bob Toledo believed a freshman should wait his turn. Cory Paus was the starter. Soon Losman decided to leave and the only schools he considered were ones who used the shotgun --- Purdue, San Diego State and Tulane.'

Marker Plenty of changes for the Bills [1:01 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'The NFL’s free agency season is only a week old and already the Buffalo Bills’ roster has changed by some 15 percent.'

Marker How you play the game [1:00 PM]
Rochester City Newspaper reports: 'So I didn't expect much from Losman. Thirty-six minutes later, however, I couldn't recall a better public presentation by a Buffalo Bill. Losman's ability to convey his story and connect with the kids was unrivaled --- better than Doug Flutie, Drew Bledsoe, and Jim Kelly.'

Marker Memorabilia Collectors Club to Hold Event [12:58 PM] reports: 'The group plans to hold its first event on Saturday, April 2, 2005 in the Bills Fieldhouse at Ralph Wilson Stadium from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.'

Marker Bills Standing Pat [6:54 AM]
WIVB-TV reports: 'I would argue that a significant part of the Bills strategy has to do with New England’s success. The Patriots have done an unbelievable job at remaining patient during free agency. They look for the bargains and not the big names. The Pats do their shopping at the outlet malls, where the quality is just as good, but the prices are marked down considerably.'

Marker Four vie for Northern football coach [5:36 AM]
Aberdeen American News reports: 'A former NFL head coach and a current NFL assistant coach are among the four candidates who have been invited to participate in on-campus interviews for the Northern State head football coaching position. Northern State athletic director Bob Olson announced Tuesday that former Atlanta Falcons head coach Jerry Glanville, current Buffalo Bills special assistant coach Paul McCord, current Northwestern College (Iowa) offensive coordinator Kyle Achterhoff and current Nebraska-Omaha offensive coordinator Lance Leipold will be in Aberdeen interviewing next week.'

Marker Holcomb is up for backup QB role [11:06 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Wyche's presence was a factor in Holcomb's decision to join Buffalo. "He's still the same old Sam," said Holcomb, a native of Tennessee. "He enjoys life. There's no question about that. I felt comfortable with those guys."'

Marker Holcomb ready to back QB Losman [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I've been through it a couple times," said Holcomb, who spoke with reporters at Ralph Wilson Stadium. "You have to understand what the situation is. I know what the situation is. He (Losman) is a young guy and they brought him in here to be THE guy. I have to help him as much as I can. I told the people in Cleveland and I'll say it here, it's all about winning football games."'

Marker Bills QB has a Kelly swagger [5:00 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'But there is one attribute the sophomore pivot already does share with Kelly. Some call it confidence, others cockiness.'

Marker Bills Look at a Lineman [4:59 AM] reports: 'He is a classic late round find.'

March 7, 2005

Marker Holcomb eager to become Losman's mentor in Buffalo [5:30 PM]

Marker DeMulling Impressed with Bills Organization [5:21 PM] reports: '"The organization is great," said DeMulling. "Everything I've seen from them [shows] they are great people. Going back to the Colts, that's all I've known so far. Their front office reminds me a lot of the Colts and the way they bring in people and who they bring in."'

Marker DeMulling To Visit Today [1:03 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'DeMulling was a 7th round draft choice out of Idaho, taken in the 2001 draft. He's a versatile player with experience at center in the NFL, and at tackle during his college days.'

Marker Rick DeMulling Visits Bills [12:36 PM] reports: '2004: Started 11 games at LG for Colts ... missed weeks 10-12 with a chest injury and weeks 16-17 with a rib injury ... started both post season contests at LG.'

Marker Travis Henry: Trade Talks With Cards Cooled [12:35 PM] reports: Update: Trade talks involving Henry for Arizona tackle L.J. Shelton seem to have cooled, according to The Sports Xchange.

Marker Holcomb gives Bills a reliable backup QB [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Second-year man J.P. Losman may or may not be ready for the full-time No. 1 job. If he struggles, it will be interesting to see how quickly coach Mike Mularkey will turn to Holcomb.'

March 6, 2005

Marker Bills Team Report [7:14 PM]
Fox Sports reports: 'Holcomb has appeared in just 28 games in five seasons, but has been productive when given opportunities to play. Holcomb doesn't have a great arm and limited athleticism. But he is a smart player who makes the right defensive reads and usually makes sound decisions with the ball. While he's not expected to beat out Losman for the starting job, the Bills hope Holcomb will provide enough stiff competition to make Losman better.'

Marker Bledsoe couldn't complete Bills [3:58 PM]
Cincinnati Enquirer reports: 'They're not a title contender with Bledsoe, so the Bills might as well find out if Losman can succeed.'

Marker Sports Night fun for all involved [5:14 AM]
Hornell Evening Tribune reports: 'While the other athletes in attendance - former Buffalo Sabre Rob Ray, Bills offensive lineman Ross Tucker and New York Jets hall of fame receiver Don Maynard - were chatting with many of the locals who showed up, Dorenbos got the night started entertaining a crowd of children with card tricks.'

Marker Browns' tactics upset Holcomb [5:12 AM]
Akron Beacon Journal reports: '``The Bills called me the first day free agency opened and said they wanted to sign me. It's good to be wanted.'''

Marker Back at UW to finish business [5:11 AM]
Wisconsin State Journal reports: 'Evans, the all-time leading receiver in Badgers history with 175 receptions for 3,468 yards, is taking three classes, worth nine credits. His other classes are consumer behavior and consumer history. That will leave him six credits shy of a degree in personal finance, work he plans to complete while taking correspondent courses this summer or next offseason. "My parents always pushed me to go to school," Evans said. "I've been basically the only person in my immediate family to go to college. ... Making it as far as I did, I just think it's important to finish it."'

Marker Insurance Plan [5:09 AM] reports: 'There are just some quarterbacks that need to have the job title backup. Holcomb is one of them, as he seems to always thrive when thrown in conditions on a short notice. His best games have always come when he has been thrown in the spotlight for relief duty, and that’s what had to have turned on the switch for the Bills to ink him to a four year deal.'

Marker Inside slant [5:08 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'If J.P. Losman can handle the New England Patriots blitz as well he handled the media blitz in his first official news conference since being named the Bills starting quarterback, Buffalo figures to be very successful with him under center.'

Marker Strategy and personnel [5:07 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'Center. The Bills have to start getting serious about upgrading their line; it's just not in the league of Pittsburgh's, Indianapolis', or New England's, the teams to beat in the AFC. Landing a veteran or good rookie would allow Trey Teague to be shifted to left tackle, making the need to re-sign Jonas Jennings a lot less urgent.'

Marker Notes, quotes [5:06 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: '"It hurt me when I heard they said I was asking for too much when I haven't even talked to anybody. They put it out there I was the bad guy asking ridiculous money, and I hadn't even talked. But I want to say thanks to the fans. I was there when we weren't so good and there when we got to 9-7 and helped build something. I just have to move on. But I would've loved to stay a Bill." -- Unrestricted free agent LT Jonas Jennings, who signed with San Francisco.'

Marker Bills sign QB Holcomb [9:00 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Injuries hindered Holcomb in Cleveland. He beat out Tim Couch for the starting job in 2003 and probably would have kept the starting job for 2004. But he suffered a torn labrum in his shoulder late in 2003, so the Browns turned to veteran Jeff Garcia. Holcomb started just two games last season.'

Marker Holcomb leaves; CB Baxter signs [5:47 AM]
Cleveland Plain Dealer reports: 'When it became apparent that there was no sense of urgency to sign Holcomb - and when news broke that the Browns had contingency plans including trading for Seattle's Trent Dilfer - Bauer and Holcomb agreed it was best that he move on. "Kelly didn't feel good at all about the way things were going in Cleveland," said Bauer. "He felt the attitude was 'if we get him, we get him, if we don't, we don't.' "'
