Buffalo Bills News - July 22, 2005

Marker Bills put their faith in untested Losman [4:29 PM]
NBC Sports reports: 'Prediction: Second.'

Marker Whatever happened to Kent Hull? [4:16 PM]
Delta Democrat Times reports: 'Being away from his native Mississippi didn't bother Hull. Instead, he got to love western New York. Except for the heaps of snow that dump on Buffalo every winter, Hull said western New York is a lot like Mississippi. "When people in the South think New York, they think New York City," Hull said. "But western and upstate New York has very friendly people much like the Delta with strong emphasis on farming. People don't know that farmers in New York grow soybeans and corn. It's a huge agricultural community. As for the snow, you adapt to it. We've all had good times in the snow up there."'

Marker Bills May See Change at Nickel Position [2:48 PM] reports: '"I would say overall we'll be a better group from top to bottom than we were a year ago," Szabo said. "A year ago we had an unsettled situation at safety, which was compounded by the fact that Lawyer broke his arm. With Milloy healthy and now having moved Troy Vincent to free safety, we should be a little more consistent. … and our corners are both the same and both went to the Pro Bowl. They're very good players."'

Marker Ten Burning Questions: AFC East [12:54 PM]
CNN/SI reports: 'Is second-year QB J.P. Losman ready to lead Buffalo's offense?'

Marker Packers and Bills will bang helmets [5:33 PM]
The Sporting News reports: '"It helps speed up the process of getting into camp," Mularkey says. "It's an extra preseason game without calling it one, which is important, especially for us with a first-year starting quarterback. As many opportunities as you can get against an opponent where everything isn't scripted, the better."'

Marker McGahee Set for a Full Season as Starter [4:15 PM] reports: '"There's no question he's been working out," Mularkey said. "You can tell physically he's a specimen. I know that group down there, they work hard. There's a number of them that have a strict workout and you can tell he's been working out. He's in [good] physical condition."'

Marker Defense Wants to Be ‘All-Time’ [4:14 PM] reports: '"We have high goals set for ourselves," said defensive captain London Fletcher. "It goes beyond just wanting to be number one in the league. Our goal is to be the greatest defense of all time."'

Marker Jaguars dropped ball on Travis Henry trade [2:42 PM]
Brunswick News reports: 'With all the questions surrounding Fred Taylor's knee and whether he'll be ready, an insurance policy like Henry may have been a little pricey, but worth it. If Taylor cannot be the player we've come to expect the past couple of seasons (and there's no way to tell what's happening in J'Ville right now, with Jack Del Rio trying to control the flow of info surrounding the team like he was head of a Communist state), that will do nothing but put more pressure on quarterback Byron Leftwich to carry the offense in his third season.'

Marker Cornerback ready to grab NFL job [2:39 PM]
Owings Mills Times reports: '"It's difficult to get rookies to settle down," Buffalo Assistant General Manager Tom Modrak said. "They are in awe of things. He came in with a great deal of confidence because he can make plays. He was intense about everything. He was very good at minicamp."'

Marker Kelly tackling auto racing [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I enjoy the race course," said Kelly, who will be Grand Marshal at the event. "I think from a spectator standpoint, they enjoy it as long as they can see what's coming on from the turns. It's interesting from the standpoint that it goes by the pits and then you wait about a minute and a half and boom, they're there. But Watkins Glen is a place I've been to many times. I enjoyed the people. I love it."'

Marker Ask Bills GM Tom Donahoe [7:53 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'E-mail your questions for the GM to'

Marker Henry deserved better from Bills [7:52 AM]
Lockport Union Sun and Journal reports: 'True, his relationship with the team likely had deteriorated beyond repair after he lost the starting running back job last season — but I can’t help wishing that the team had found a way to use both Henry and the explosive Willis McGahee at the same time. Henry was a warrior in his time with the Bills, twice rushing for more than 1,300 yards. He also played through numerous injuries, including a broken bone in his leg.'

Marker Texans' rush, no Ricky are breaks for Bills [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Bills will open at home against the Houston Texans on Sunday, Sept. 11. There couldn't be many softer spots for second-year quarterback.'

July 20, 2005

Marker Losman growing at his own beat [9:26 PM]
USA Today reports: '"I should know after about Week 3 or 4. I'm going to look back and either go, 'This football thing is going to happen for me.' Or I'm going to look back and say, 'Man, this is going to be really tough.' But until I know, this little waiting period is stressful."'

Marker Kelly fuels competitive itch with car racing [9:24 PM]
AP reports: '"I ran the no-huddle offense. Well, that's what this is, it's fast-paced," Kelly said Wednesday. "I just love it. I really do. I'm a NASCAR freak."'

Marker How Will the Bills’ Offense Be Different? [4:18 PM] reports: '"We can do so many things now," Moulds said. "We can put guys in the backfield, we can put Roscoe in the backfield, you can put Lee back there, you can use those guys' speed and mix it up a little bit. I think it's going to be tough for guys to come in and throw coverage and try to do different things and try to take one guy away. It's going to be more diverse because if they do that we're going to get Roscoe down the seam, going to get Lee down the seam for a touchdown. I think teams are going to have to respect the speed outside."'

Marker Wilson Posts Double Victory at USTA National Championships [12:12 PM] reports: 'Mary Wilson, the wife of Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson, showed the family’s athletic success expands beyond the football field.'

Marker New York's senators seek careful check of Supreme Court nominee [9:06 AM]
AP reports: 'The son of a former Bethlehem Steel executive, Roberts was born in Buffalo but left when his family moved when he was a young boy. But his childhood was apparently long enough to make him a fan of the city's football team, the Bills.'

Marker Mary Wilson earns two titles [8:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Mary Wilson, the wife of Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson, won two titles last Friday in the United States Tennis Association's National Grass Court Championships, held in Forest Hills, Queens.'

Marker Bills need Losman to make plays [7:19 AM]
ESPN reports: 'Offensive coordinator Tom Clements will change the passing game that he had for immobile QB Drew Bledsoe to a lot more roll outs and bootlegs, where Losman can challenge the defensive perimeter. It will also also simplify his reads because he will only really have to look at half the field. Look for Buffalo to also utilize a considerable amount of QB draw plays, where Losman has the opportunity to tuck the ball and run if he doesn't see something open.'

Marker Matthews adapting to new role [7:14 AM]
Daytona Beach News Journal reports: '"I was planning on retiring when Buffalo called because they had a lot of injuries at quarterback," he said. "I ended up playing just about the entire second half of that exhibition game even though I didn't know the system at all. It was a lot of fun. I got to play a little bit. I had a blast." Matthews knows his role when he returns this year. He'll be the No. 3 quarterback behind J.P. Losman and Kelly Holcomb. "My role is to mentor J.P.," he said. "That's it. I'm always making suggestions anyway. At meetings, I'm always drawing up plays. Sometimes they try them and sometimes they get thrown in the garbage can."'

AP reports: 'Henry will be introduced at a news conference on Wednesday.'

Marker Titans trade for Pro Bowl RB Henry [5:09 PM] reports: 'The Titans and Henry also have agreed to terms on a multi-year extension of his contract.'

Marker Backup RB Battle Could Be Tight Race [4:11 PM] reports: 'The likely front-runner for the job is RaShard Lee, who signed with the Bills on May 16 as an unrestricted free agent after spending the last two seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. Dallas released him less than two weeks earlier. In his short time with the team, Lee has impressed Bills head coach Mike Mularkey, who said Lee made the most of his opportunity at some Organized Team Activies when both Henry and McGahee were missing.'

Marker Belichick hoists Lombardi Trophy again [9:47 AM]
Northwest Arkansas Times reports: 'Buffalo has a strong defense and special teams and those can take a team a long way. The Bills are moving in the right direction, but how far can they go this season?'

Marker Candidates line up to replace Henry [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Joe Burns has the most experience of the guys who will be in camp. Shaud Williams did an outstanding job for us last year. We were impressed this spring with ReShard Lee, who we picked up from Dallas, and Lionel Gates, who we drafted in the seventh round. So we have four backs who we think will be very competitive to see who becomes Willis' backup."'

Marker Handwriting was on wall for Henry [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'I imagine fans have mixed emotions. Henry certainly had his issues, both on the field (fumbles) and off (he pleaded guilty in 2001 to attempted sexual misconduct in an incident involving a 15-year-old girl). But you had to respect him as a player. He epitomized this city's blue-collar work ethic. He played with as much toughness and heart as any Buffalo Bill in recent memory.'
