Buffalo Bills News - November 21, 2004

Marker Buffalo 37, St. Louis 17 [4:30 PM]
The Sports Network reports: 'Campbell, who didn't have a reception in the previous three contests, finished with four catches for 37 yards, as the Bills have won three of four. Willis McGahee added 100 yards rushing for Buffalo (4-6), which used strong special teams in the second half to capture its fourth straight win at home.'

Marker Ritcher to Be Added to Wall of Fame [3:27 PM] reports: '"I was totally flabbergasted," Ritcher said. "At first, just for a second, I’m thinking, ‘Gosh, I wonder if they want me to come back and play?’ That didn’t last very long. Then he told me the vote had come and what they had decided. I just couldn’t believe it. It was absolutely the farthest thing from my mind that he could have been calling me about. Like I said, I was flabbergasted and honored at the same time. Ever since then, I’ve been looking forward to getting up there and seeing some old friends and being part of the weekend."'

Marker If Bills go on the run, Rams could get battered [9:07 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Bills' offense wakes up from seasonlong slumber and outscores Rams, 27-21.'

Marker Ritcher goes on Wall today [9:06 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Only two players - Andre Reed and Bruce Smith - played more seasons and in more games for the Bills than Ritcher.'

Marker Donahoe's future may hinge on Bills' finish [9:05 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The combination of the Williams firing and the quarterback situation is forcing the Bills, in Year Four of the Donahoe regime, to start over to a large degree. Mike Mularkey brought a new system this season, and J.P. Losman probably will take over at quarterback next season, barring a giant recovery by Bledsoe.'

Marker Mularkey's calls are wrong numbers [9:03 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'I applauded Mularkey when he hired a solid, experienced staff. That's what Williams didn't do and it put him in a deep hole from the start. Mularkey served under two successful coaches, Bill Cowher and Sam Wyche. The expectation was that he learned plenty from them. There are seven games left. Maybe Mike will at least equal Williams' goodbye record of 6-10 in 2003. That is if he doesn't keep making bizarre decisions.'

Marker Mac Bledsoe relishes son's ability to take a hit [9:02 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I am extremely proud of our son, prouder today than just about any time in his career because he has not wavered a bit in his character," Mac Bledsoe said by phone last week. "He's never allowed a situation to make him do what I would have done, which is get mad and lose control. It takes 10 times more courage, more fortitude, to play on a team that's not going well."'

Marker Policing the corner [9:00 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Clements has seen fewer passes thrown his way this season as opponents size up the strengths of the Buffalo secondary and plot accordingly. It used to be that playing the Bills was picking your poison, challenging either Clements or Antoine Winfield, who after last season left for Minnesota in free agency.'

Marker Bills look to recover against talented Rams [5:03 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'But with a 3-6 record and four of their next five games on the road — where they are winless — those players aren't naïve, either. The fat lady is warming up her voice. Their goal now is to keep her away from the microphone for as long as possible.'

Marker J.P.: Anything but laid back [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'But before you start screaming, "Oh, no, not another Rob Johnson!" listen to some of the people who know Losman well. They'll tell you that the Bills rookie quarterback and Johnson are about as similar as Desperate Housewives and Sponge Bob Square Pants. They'll tell you to bag that SoCal, surfer dude stereotype. It doesn't fit.'

Marker Bills Q&A: Ryan Neufeld [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'What is something that annoys you?
"Being cut off in traffic, which is probably everyone's pet peeve. It's not too bad here, though, not compared to L.A."'

Marker Will return to ‘Ralph’ rejuvenate Bills against Rams? [5:00 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Buffalo, 0-4 on the road, lost the last two by an average of nearly 19 points. But after losing on the final snap against Jacksonville and playing defending Super Bowl champion New England tough, has won three straight at “The Ralph.”'

Marker Bills bungled Losman’s debut [4:59 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'It made no sense to expose Losman to that atmosphere.'

Marker Buffalo's expected to tank it Sunday [4:58 AM]
St. Louis Post Dispatch reports: 'With a high degree of certainty, the Rams know what to expect Sunday from Buffalo at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The Bills will line up in their "tank" formation, with two tight ends, two backs, and just one wide receiver ... and run them right at the Rams' defense behind their big offensive line.'

Marker Martz wishes he still had Buffalo's Fletcher [4:57 AM]
St. Louis Post Dispatch reports: '"There's no question we miss London," Martz said. "He's my kind of football player. He always has been."'

Marker Rams-Bills: 5 Things To Watch [4:56 AM]
St. Louis Post Dispatch reports: 'Left guard has been another problem area for Buffalo. After starting the first seven games, Lawrence Smith has given way to Ross Tucker. Both entered the league as undrafted players.'

Marker Rams know they have to maintain their intensity [4:55 AM]
Belleville News Democrat reports: 'Bills quarterback Drew Bledsoe has thrown 10 interceptions and been sacked 25 times despite playing behind one of the biggest offensive lines in the NFL with an average height of 6-foot-4 and average weight of 320 pounds.'

Marker Former defensive star is now leader for Bills [4:54 AM]
Belleville News Democrat reports: 'In retrospect, Fletcher was a player that the Rams couldn't afford to lose.'

Marker Defense, Conditions Equal Tough Task for Rams [4:53 AM] reports: '“Their whole defense is actually pretty good, not just the secondary,” Bulger said. “They have some good players up front, their linebackers, everybody knows about them, and the secondary (is good as well). (Their defense) was second or third last year in total defense, and this year they around fifth. That unit has been together, they know what they are doing, and they like to pressure. It will be a formidable challenge.”'

Marker Woodrow Wilson's Baker to start for Buffalo today [4:51 AM]
Cherry Hill Courier Post reports: 'The Bills' coaching staff likes Baker's ability to create turnovers. Baker was a high school All-American wide receiver coming out of Woodrow Wilson, but he was switched to safety when he reported to Knoxville as a freshman.'

Marker What to Look for vs. Rams [6:16 PM] reports: 'The St. Louis Rams defense is ranked 28th in the league and they have struggled against the run this season. In four games a starter, Willis McGahee has rushed for over 100 yards in three of those and expect him to have another big day on Sunday. McGahee should be able to find holes in the Rams defensive line, which should allow the Bills to get their running game back on track.'

Marker Losman makes me nervous [2:09 PM]
Lockport Union Sun and Journal reports: 'Losman has made several comments about his appearance and his future that leave me with Billy Joe Hobert-like feelings.'

Marker TV deal due warm reception [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The NFL's greed is good for the Bills and their fans. When the TV deals are maximized, those billions are shared equally by all NFL teams no matter market size. If it takes a disruption every two years for ABC, NBC or Fox to pay extra millions for a Monday schedule that still is bound to lose money, Bills fans should applaud.'

Marker Fletcher's play gets a thumbs up [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"As the mike linebacker he's the quarterback out there on the field," Blackmon said. "We put a lot of pressure on him to make a lot of calls and to get things communicated on the line of scrimmage."'

Marker Wilson a Hall semifinalist again [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Wilson, a semifinalist last year, is one of four men in the "contributor" category who made the final 25. The others are former Browns and Ravens owner Art Modell, former Cardinals and Chargers coach Don Coryell and former Giants general manager George Young.'

Marker Speedy Rams can still pile up points [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"They're still pretty potent," Bills coach Mike Mularkey warned. "I think the tools are all still there for that team. Whether they're putting up 40 (points) or not, that offense is very, very potent."'

Marker Bills not shuffling QBs, yet [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Sooner or later, Buffalo figures to be added to the list.'

Marker Ritcher was one of a kind [4:59 AM]
Tonawanda News reports: 'Saban, now 83, is a member of the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame. Now, 40 years after he led the Bills to their first AFL title, he should be on the Bills Wall of Fame. That will be one spot it will be hard for him to leave.'

Marker Mularkey's working on a Buffalo stampede [4:58 AM]
St. Louis Post Dispatch reports: '"In the games we've won, we've been pretty efficient - no turnovers, no sacks, ball control," he said. "So I know it's there, it's shown up, we've won because of it. Other times when we have not played our best football, it's just too hard to overcome the other team when we can't overcome ourselves first."'
