Marker Bills can put crimp on Miami's playoff future [12:36 PM] reports: 'Should the Dolphins fall to the Bills, they will have no shot at the division or a bye, as the Jets would be able to claim the title with a win over Oakland, and if they fail to do that, New England would beat out Miami on a divisional tie-breaker. '

Marker Scouting the Dolphins with John Guy [12:36 PM] reports: 'Guy thinks the Dolphins may have a tough time in the post-season, primarily because of their absence of a running game this year.'

Marker For team owners, drafting a Bill was pointless [9:13 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It's been a horrible year on the field, as evidenced by a 3-12 record entering Sunday's finale in Miami. And it's hard to find an NFL team that has contributed less value to fantasy football.'

Marker Catching up to stardom [5:36 AM]
D and C reports: 'Sunday at Miami, one catch by Riemersma will give the Bills four players with at least 50 catches each for the first time in team history and just the 18th time in NFL history.'

Marker Carolina, and rest, are on Gadsden's mind [5:33 AM]
Palm Beach Post reports: 'Wannstedt wasn't pleased with practice Thursday. "It was average, very average," Wannstedt said. "Too much playoff talk. . . . All anybody is concerned about is the playoffs. We have to get our minds on Buffalo or we'll have a tough time."'

Marker Zach has partially torn muscle [5:33 AM]
Palm Beach Post reports: 'Thomas, who injured his right shoulder in Sunday's victory against Atlanta, said he hopes to play because the Dolphins still are seeking home-field advantage in the playoffs. But he indicated that if this game were of less magnitude, he might sit out.'

Marker Dolphins still have plenty of motivation against Bills [9:51 PM]
AP reports: 'No one has to tell the Dolphins about the advantage of playing at home in the postseason. Their past six playoff losses have been on the road.'

Marker Van Pelt buoyed by Bills desire to re-sign him [9:50 PM]
AP reports: '"Whatever role I'm told to fill, that's the role I'm going to fill," he said. "If they come in and say, 'Rob's the starter. You're the backup,' that's what I'm going to do."'

Marker Bills telling Johnson to renegotiate or leave [9:47 PM]
Fox Sports reports: '"There are two factors that are important," said Donahoe. "First, Rob has to want to be here, and, two, if he is here something has to be done with his contract. That's probably going to be a sticking point. The question is just how much they're willing to be realistic and how much they're willing to work with us to come up with the right number."'

Marker Gregg Williams press conference [9:36 AM] reports: "I'm really proud of how Alex has done, and I think I've said several times before, there wasn't another team in the National Football League that was willing to give him a shot as a number three, and we brought him in here to be a two, and he's done a great job with that. He's rallied the team, has played very well, and will be there with a good game plan going in there this week to play the Dolphins, and we're comfortable with Alex, and want him to continue to be a Buffalo Bill."

Marker Brown, Centers go Pro Bowling [9:36 AM] reports: 'Brown has been selected to the AFC's team every year since 1996, and joins Steve Tasker, Andre Reed and Bruce Smith as one of only four Bills to be selected at least six years in a row. For Centers, he becomes just the sixth player to represent each conference in the league's All-Star game, having been selected to the 1995 and 1996 NFC squads as a member of the Arizona Cardinals.'

Marker Pro Bowl press conference [9:35 AM] reports: "Pleasantly surprised, and as always it's an honor to be voted by your peers and coaches and the fans out there who are watching us play. As an offensive lineman, it's a big honor. I can't do it alone, I have teammates who help me be me, and I'm pretty fortunate in having John Fina, who's been my partner for seven years, and Billy Conaty, who did a great job for us this year and helped me do my job and a lot of the credit goes to those guys."

Marker Tom Donahoe press conference [9:34 AM] reports: "Rob has had a difficult season because of the injuries. He played a couple of games where he was very good in Jacksonville and San Diego, to name two, and I thought even our first game in Indy, he played well in that game. Unfortunately, early in the year we had some injuries, we had a lot of things going on with the offensive line, and the offense in general that made it hard to evaluate Rob fairly."

Marker Alex Van Pelt press conference [9:33 AM] reports: "Being in Buffalo would be great, either way - starting or back-up. If we both come back, Rob comes back and I'm here, I would be in a position to back Rob up, which is fine with me. I understand that, and that's a situation which would make me just as happy, being here."

Marker Tom Donahoe's Weekly Bills Update [9:33 AM] reports: 'In terms of progress, the last half of the season, this team has played a lot better football. We didn't play well in San Francisco, but other than that game, each game since the middle of the year we've been competitive, and it's come down to the end, and we've had chances to win. We haven't won as many as we should have, and we're disappointed in that, but there's been progress. '

Marker Donahoe clearly sounds vague on Rob returning [9:08 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It's apparent that the high cost of the final year of Johnson's contract will make his return questionable. Very questionable.'

Marker Brown, Centers heading to Pro Bowl [9:07 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The selection was the sixth straight for Brown, an honor only three other Bills have achieved.'

Marker Moulds flirts with chasing his hoop dreams [9:06 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Moulds said Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban made contact with him last offseason about Moulds' potential interest in giving the NBA a shot.'

Marker Van Pelt just wants to return to Buffalo [5:17 AM]
D and C reports: '"This is a place where we've made our home, my daughter was born here, we have another one that's going to be born in February here," Van Pelt said. "We have a house here, we love it here, if possible we'd love to stay here."'

Marker Brown, Centers Hawaii-bound [5:16 AM]
D and C reports: 'There have been some years when it seemed like Brown made the Pro Bowl purely on reputation, but this was not one of them. This may be the 305-pounder's best season.'

Marker Moulds: Give me the (basket)ball [5:16 AM]
D and C reports: 'With his sixth season drawing to a close, however, Moulds, 28, said he yearns to play basketball professionally, the sport he loves the most.'

Marker Thomas, Madison in Pro Bowl [5:15 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'Despite posting double-digit victories in consecutive seasons for the first time since 1984 and 1985, the Dolphins actually lost ground in the annual beauty contest that is the Pro Bowl.'
