Buffalo Bills News - November 15, 2004

Marker Gillette Becoming Buffalo Football Purgatory [7:48 AM]
PatsFans.com reports: 'This baby wasn’t close at any time. Three of the first four offensive drives by the Patriots went for 81, 91, 75 and 70 yards. Three of those drives ended in very short Adam Vinatieri field goals. Normally, this practice of settling for field goals can hurt a team, and the only thing the Bills did consistently well was to stop the Patriots inside the Buffalo 10. Instead, the Patriots merely did what they do against Bledsoe, and took McGahee out of his game completely.'

Marker Nothing fancy, but it's a win [7:39 AM]
Portland Press Herald reports: '"Just basically we wanted to stop the run, play physically and not give up any cheap balls down the field," said safety Rodney Harrison. "And just do our job, play hard-nosed football. We knew they wanted to get McGahee going, and we were stuck on not letting him get going. And he didn't."'

Marker You just had to feel sorry for Bledsoe [7:37 AM]
Portland Press Herald reports: 'Drew. Drew. It has come to this. Eight of 19 passes completed for 76 yards. Too many times he threw to the wrong guy. Drew. Drew.'

Marker Sunday night stinker [5:52 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'In its last four night games Buffalo has now been outscored 119-18, and on this clear and frosty Massachusetts night, the only cable network the Bills belonged on was Comedy Central.'

Marker Report card [5:51 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Drew Bledsoe had a QB rating of 14.3. What more do you need to know?'

Marker Home rule [5:51 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'The only positive for the Bills, who had only eight first downs, converted no third downs in seven attempts, and were outgained in net yards, 428-125, was a 70-yard punt return in the third quarter by Jonathan Smith, which ruined New England's shutout bid.'

Marker Missions are accomplished [5:50 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'And then there was the somewhat sorrowful case of Bledsoe, New England's former franchise quarterback. Even though opposed by a severely compromised New England secondary (definition: no Ty Law and no Tyrone Poole), Bledsoe went a meager 8 for 19 with his passes and totaled but 76 yards.'

Marker Brown hooks up with Bledsoe again [5:49 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'Last night at Gillette Stadium, the pair was reunited on a pass play that once again brought joy to the Patriots faithful, but, oh, how different the circumstances were from days gone by.'

Marker Touted opponent simply not up for the challenge [5:49 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'Respective quarterback ratings: Brady, 102.7; Bledsoe, 7.7.'

Marker The end is here for once-great Bledsoe [5:48 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'The end came, for all intents and purposes, at 11:20 last night.'

Marker Pats don't pal around with Bledsoe, Buffalo [5:45 AM]
Boston Herald reports: '``Drew's a good friend of mine and I love the guy to death. But football can be bittersweet and crappy,'' said kicker Adam Vinatieri [news], sounding a note of pity that permeated the Patriots' locker room. ``We tried to make it hard on him the best we could. Bill finds a way to throw a wrinkle every time that puts a little pressure on him.'''

Marker Brown picks on Drew [5:45 AM]
Boston Herald reports: 'Brown was lined up in the slot opposite the Bills' best receiver, Eric Moulds, on first-and-10 from the Buffalo 38 with 14:05 to play in the fourth quarter. He dropped back in coverage, slipped in front of Moulds and made the first interception of his 13-year NFL career.'

Marker Dillon takes toll on Bills [5:44 AM]
Boston Herald reports: '``That's a great defense and I've got a lot of respect for those guys. They play hard. I know a lot of guys over there and that's a tough team. When you get a 100 on them, it's well deserved. We just kept applying what we wanted to do, run the ball, get upfield, and go north and south with it, and we came up with some big plays.'''

Marker Another Lawyer letdown [5:43 AM]
Boston Herald reports: '``That's the most frustrating thing, playing the way we did (last night),'' said Milloy, who celebrated his 31st birthday yesterday. ``We have to go back to the drawing board today and realize why we got beat. We have to go back to doing what this team does best.'''

Marker Drew hasn't a clue [5:42 AM]
Boston Herald reports: '``There's not really much to say,'' Bledsoe said with his usual stoicism. ``We got beat. We didn't throw it well enough, we didn't run it well enough, and we didn't put enough points on the board.'''

Marker It's official: Cover's good [5:41 AM]
Boston Herald reports: 'So thanks, Drew, for another stinker at The Razor. Come back any time - we'll bet on the Pats and buy you dinner.'

Marker Second helping for Patriots [5:40 AM]
Metro West Daily News reports: 'But truly, the game turned in the second quarter.'

Marker Bledsoe is sinking [5:40 AM]
Metro West Daily News reports: 'Prior to last night's game, Bledsoe had put up the following numbers against the Patriots: 1-4 record, 107-of-183 passing for 1,190 yards, 5 touchdowns, 8 interceptions, while being sacked 18 times. Toss in last night's debacle and the numbers look even worse.'

Marker No end to this victory tour [5:39 AM]
Metro West Daily News reports: 'Life ain't fair, Drew.'

Marker Pats have the run of things [5:38 AM]
Providence Journal reports: 'Even though the Bills are a road-challenged outfit, this was even more lopsided than anticipated. But pregame promise of a competitive game vanished quickly as the Patriots bottled-up ballyhooed back Willis McGahee (11 carries, 36 first-half yards) and marshaled three long scoring drives against the normally stingy Bills' defense.'

Marker Improved Buffalo no match for Patriots [5:38 AM]
Providence Journal reports: '"We just did not play well enough to beat anybody tonight, especially a team that just doesn't make mistakes," he said. "We jut didn't play well all around. Period."'

Marker Brown turns the tables on Bledsoe [5:37 AM]
Providence Journal reports: '"I knew when they had Moulds in the slot like that, he's their go-to guy so I kind of figured he'd go in that direction," Brown said. Bledsoe tried to fire a short pass to Moulds cutting toward the middle, but Brown was there to pick it off.'

Marker Numbers tell a dreary tale for Bledsoe [5:36 AM]
Providence Journal reports: 'It was likely the nadir of his playing career.'

Marker Bledsoe has to know his days are numbered [5:36 AM]
Providence Journal reports: 'But what would have been the absolute numbers nadir for Bledsoe would have been if a poll had been taken among the fans at Gillette Stadium, inquiring whether, if they could, they would bring him back to New England to replace Brady. The results of that would have been 68,756 to zero. Allowing, of course, for the usual five percent margin of error.'

Marker Bruschi's interception buffaloes Bledsoe [5:35 AM]
Providence Journal reports: 'But Bledsoe had apparently locked in on Evans and never saw Bruschi, who he hit in the hands.'

Marker Bruising and cruising [5:34 AM]
Woonsocket Call reports: 'Bill Belichick’s not in Drew Bledsoe’s head. He’s in his nightmares.'

Marker Drew Bashing [5:33 AM]
Hartford Courant reports: 'Sunday at Gillette Stadium, the Patriots' defense all but took away Bledsoe's job as Bills starting quarterback.'

Marker Patriots roll over Bills [5:33 AM]
Springfield Republican reports: 'Last night, they all led back to the simpliest of facts - the New England Patriots are way better than the Buffalo Bills.'

Marker Patriots settle the Bills [5:32 AM]
Lynn Daily Item reports: 'The Patriots owned the first half, having the ball for 18:20 while bottling up McGahee for only 36 yards on 11 carries. They also picked off Bledsoe twice.'

Marker Patriots bury Bills, 29-6 [5:31 AM]
Patriots.com reports: 'New England cooled the hooves of the Buffalo Bills with a solid defensive effort that held Willis McGahee to 37 yards on 14 carries and Drew Bledsoe to 76 yards passing on 8 of 19 with three interceptions -- one of them to Troy Brown. On offense, the Patriots dominated although came up short in the red zone enough to force five Adam Vinatieri field goals. Tom Brady was 19 of 35 passing for 233 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while Corey Dillon powered his way to 151 yards on 26 carries.'
