Buffalo Bills News - September 13, 2004

Marker Wilford's leap a giant step for Jags [8:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'And the play is called? "Catch it," Leftwich said. "I mean we have some guys running some routes and he was out there. The guy can jump out of the gym. The guy is a basketball player, playing football."'

Marker Lack of scoring punch reminiscent of 2003 [8:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Mularkey said the Jags had 11 men at the line of scrimmage on third-and-goal from the 1. Which was it? Was it scripted, or was it the 11 men at the line? What about living up to your supposed identity as a running team? Run the ball and let the world know you mean business.'

Marker Byron shows signs of being a winner [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'But here's what resonates: The Bills, by choice, put the ball in Bledsoe's hands on third and goal from the Jacksonville 1 with just more than 10 minutes remaining. He froze, surrendering a sack, taking a fourth-down touchdown try out of the equation. Jacksonville, out of necessity, put its trust in Leftwich on the final drive and came away with a victory, a vital victory considering the next three weeks on the schedule read: Denver, Tennessee, Indianapolis.'

Marker Offense stays with running game [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I felt good about it," said running back Travis Henry. "We had been playing good in the preseason. Everybody wants to run the ball. We ran it good sometimes, but there were sometimes where we got negative plays. But for the most part, I though we stuck with it and did a good job."'

Marker A crushing blow [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Team isn't good enough to overcome missed FG by Lindell.'

Marker Monday billboard [8:54 AM]

Marker Just out of reach [5:12 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'There have been some gut-wrenching defeats in the 45-year history of the Bills franchise, but this 13-10 loss to the Jaguars zoomed right into top-10 territory.'

Marker Bills look like last season's losers [5:11 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'But if you're going to play your cards close to the vest, you'd better employ players who don't swallow hard at gut-check time.'

Marker Two plays take away victory from Bills [5:10 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"We had guys in position, but he wound up making a big play and we didn't," said Reese, who ended a 43-game interception drought by Bills safeties with a fourth-quarter pick that set up a 25-yard field goal by Rian Lindell. "They had tried that play earlier in the game, and although it didn't work, we thought it was a possibility they would come back to it again."'

Marker Bills need to learn how to win [5:09 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'This was a game the Bills expected to win. It was a game they should have won. Yet they lost, and the reason was simple: While Mularkey has a talented bunch to work with, they don't know how to win, and that's an intangible that is paramount to success in a league where the majority of games are decided by a touchdown or less.'

Marker The 'Two-Minute' Read [5:08 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'How Wilford was able to make the catch with three Bills surrounding him is a nightmare the Bills won't easily forget, but they have to, and fast.'

Marker Buffalo Bills report card [5:07 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Coaching, D+: The effort was there, but Mike Mularkey's regular-season debut was marred by the turnovers and penalties that plagued his team during the preseason.'

Marker Bills lose real heartbreaker [5:06 AM]
Toronto Star reports: 'Linebacker Takeo Spikes, who was among the defenders draped all over Wilford: "It was a helluva catch. (Pause.) A helluva catch. ... I didn't believe he caught it. Then, more so, I didn't believe he'd stayed in bounds."'

Marker Bills die in seconds [5:05 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'How unlikely? A Jaguars team that was unable to move the ball most of the afternoon had suddenly found life. Leftwich, who had thrown for just 75 yards previously, amassed 72 on that 122-second drive.'

Marker Bills in a state of disbelief after being robbed of win [5:04 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"That was an act of God," said Darius, the one-time Syracuse University Orangeman who now punishes people out of the Jacksonville Jaguars' secondary. "That's what that was. It was divine intervention."'

Marker Veteran Mistakes Ruin The Bills Opener [5:01 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Looking at the full picture as this loss pertains to the season, it means Buffalo now must go out and get a win it isn't expected to get. That means beating New England or maybe winning in Seattle or next week in Oakland.'
