Marker Wake Up Time [11:31 AM]
WOKR-TV reports: 'Drew Bledsoe looked a lot like the number 11 he replaced on Sunday.'

Marker Bills' sudden swoon leaves everyone unhappy [9:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It's important that you understand that you always play with a sense of urgency. But you don't panic," Williams said Monday. "In the National Football League, you coach as hard as you can every week and you play as hard as you can every week. That doesn't change. That's what we'll continue to do. We spend the hours and the hard work and prepare each week as hard as we can. We've got to play better and we've got to coach better."'

Marker Williams needs to become a leader [9:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'There were people who felt it was mean-spirited of me to question Henry's intelligence a few weeks back. But it's one thing for a columnist to do it. It's quite another for the head coach to cheap shot his own player for making a boneheaded mistake. You can lose your team that way.'

Marker Williams hopeful about return of Moulds [9:57 AM]

Marker In Buffalo, it's wake up or shake up [5:14 AM]

Marker Did everyone overrate the Bills? [5:13 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Gilbride knows his stuff, but he lost a lot of credibility with Sunday’s showing.'

Marker Buffalo Bills replay [5:12 AM]

Marker That's more like it [5:10 AM]
New York Post reports: 'Defensive line - A. DE Shaun Ellis got his sixth and seventh sacks of the season. NT Jason Ferguson had two sacks, two batted passes and a forced fumble. DT James Reed had seven tackles and a sack, as did rookie Dewayne Robertson.'

Marker Upon further review [5:09 AM]
New York Newsday reports: 'Drew Bledsoe was sacked seven times in an outstanding game by the defensive line, but that's not all. The Jets also confused Bledsoe by playing combination coverages. They showed their traditional cover-2 look (zone with two deep safeties) but added a wrinkle at times - man coverage underneath. The extra time Bledsoe needed to recognize the coverage resulted in several of the sacks.'

Marker Inside slant [5:08 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'The question that is now arising is, were the Bills over-rated to begin with? It appears that could be the case. With all the new additions on defense, maybe it wasn't reasonable to assume they would jell quickly and become a dominant unit. There have been far too many breakdowns in the last four weeks and newcomers Takeo Spikes, Sam Adams and Lawyer Milloy have tailed off precipitously since opening day when all three played major roles in the 31-0 shellacking of New England.'

Marker Strategy and personnel [5:07 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: Coaching - D...True, they aren't the ones making the plays, but they're the ones putting the players in bad situations.'

Marker Notes, quotes, anecdotes [5:06 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'LB Takeo Spikes seems to have cooled off after an eye-opening start for his new team. Spikes has been in on tackles, but he hasn't been involved in creating a turnover since the Week 3 loss in Miami.'

Marker Can anybody defend Gregg? [5:05 AM]
WGRZ-TV reports: 'I’m not jumping to the defense of Williams here, but I also think Donahoe and Wilson need to be absolutely certain they have no alternative before pulling the plug on the Gregg Williams tenure.'

Marker Considering Changes At The Top? [5:04 AM]
WIVB-TV reports: 'Let's not single out Gregg Williams among the coaches. Kevin Gilbride seems lost. The offense has been pitiful. They have no identity and no ability to put points on the board. Fullback Sam Gash said they're a "finesse" offense. If that's the case, why is a blocking fullback like Gash even here? Why didn't they keep Larry Centers. If it's a finesse team, why did they dump Jay Riemersma, and add a blocking tight end like Mark Campbell? Perhaps G-M Tom Donahoe needed to change more than his personel in the off-season. If he wanted a smash mouth running game he should have changed his offensive coordinator. The Head Coach certainly isn't mandating a smash mouth running game, and if he is, Gilbride isn't listening.'

Marker The Day After: Gregg Williams Comments [5:03 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: "It's never good when you get beat 30-3. There are some good things that go in losses and there's some bad things that go in wins. In all three phases we've got to make corrections and we've got to move on."

Marker Sneak Peek @ Next Week: Buffalo Bills [11:04 PM]
Redskins.com reports: 'Steve Spurrier Comments: "We didn't play very well against Tampa Bay and we'll need to regroup. Buffalo's a good team and we'll need to play better if we want to win next week."'

Marker Bills reeling after dropping three of four [10:39 PM]

Marker WR Moulds could resume practicing this week [10:38 PM]
AP reports: '``We would hope that he would be able to get back out there sometime next week,'' he said.'
