Buffalo Bills News - September 1, 2005

Marker Life's not easy in the ‘Big Easy’ [8:50 AM]
Niagara Gazette reports: 'It’s unlikely the Oct. 2 game against the Saints will be played at the Superdome — not only because part of the roof was blown off during the hurricane, but because the city is all but uninhabitable and probably still will be that way in October.'

Marker Inside slant [6:28 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Last season, Buffalo's defense and special teams scored 10 touchdowns. "It's very nice, yes," said Losman when asked about having that kind of support.'

Marker Strategy and personnel [6:27 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: Battle of the week: Josh Reed, Sam Aiken, Jonathan Smith for the No. 3 receiver job - With rookie sensation Roscoe Parrish out indefinitely, the job is suddenly wide open again.'

Marker Notes, quotes [6:26 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Do NFL players, who work out year-round, really need four preseason games to get ready for the regular season? "I'd like to see two myself," said nine-year veteran Kelly Holcomb, 32. "Obviously, the owners are making money with four preseason games, but I think pretty much the coaches (already) know whom they want and what they need to do with the depth chart. I can understand where some guys need four, but four, along with 16 regular season games, that's a lot on the body especially when you get to be my age."'

Marker AFC East capsules [6:24 AM]
Miami Herald reports: 'Playoff outlook: Fair to good. You would feel better with an experienced quarterback, but Buffalo chose the Losman route. Losing big Pat Williams from the defense will hurt vs. the run. In a division that features Curtis Martin, Corey Dillon and Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown in Miami, that could be the difference in making the playoffs.'

Marker Bills' Wire gives special teams his all [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I think experience is the only thing that is holding me back," Wire admitted the other day following a practice inside Ralph Wilson Stadium. "I feel athletically I can play ball with the best of them at that position in the NFL. I'm right there, it's just a lack of experience."'

Marker Bills coach April stays focused despite disaster [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I've got a mother and brother who are down there and they decided to ride it out like a lot in New Orleans did. It's hard to explain why but they did," April said. "I grew up on the east side, which is really flooded, but we don't have any family there anymore. But I have nieces and nephews with my mother and they were in a safer location in terms of the water, and they're getting out today and trying to get up to Arkansas somewhere."'

Marker McGee sets high goals to build off electrifying season [2:47 PM]

Marker Holcomb has Bills' back [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It's huge for the team and comforting for the coaches," said Bills President and General Manager Tom Donahoe. "If there is a situation where J.P. got shook up or maybe in a game where he's struggling and (coach) Mike (Mularkey) is looking for a spark, you can get that with Kelly, and he doesn't need a lot of reps during the week to understand the game plan. Kelly has the right approach and the right attitude to handle all of it."'

Marker Donahoe says no to going after Simon [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Based on the figures that we had heard from his agent it just didn't sound realistic for us to be involved with it," Donahoe said. "At this stage, where people are trying to get down to the final roster, he may not get what he thinks he's going to get."'

Marker McGahee destined for big year [7:28 AM]
Pro Football Weekly reports: 'Losman doesn't have to win games so much as he has to avoid losing them.

Grade: C-plus.'

Marker Bills' Campbell says 'throw it my way' [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"With the naked (bootlegs) and all those things with me getting out of the pocket, the tight end slanting and getting open will benefit our team," said Losman.

Marker Bills' Roster Undergoes Change [4:59 AM] reports: 'Therrian Fontenot was a free agent signee out of Fresno State. He was converted from running back while with the Bulldogs, but the first year cornerback was Buffalo's only cut to get down to the roster limit.'
