Buffalo Bills News - December 9, 2003

Marker Titans to dwell on foes, not fumbles [5:12 AM]
Nashville City Paper reports: '“On my way in this morning, I stopped to get a cup of coffee really early and when I was walking to my car, an individual said, ‘Hang in there. We’re still behind you,’” Fisher said. “When I got in the car, I thought, ‘We’re not 4-9, we’re 9-4.’ … We were 8-5 last year and were tired at this point last year, just scratching and clawing to get back to 8-5. We’re 9-4, and we’re going to be OK.”'

Marker Quite a letdown [5:11 AM]
New York Post reports: 'DEFENSIVE LINE - F
NT Jason Ferguson had a sack, but said he played his "worst" game. DT Chester McGlockton had two penalties on one play. Tackling was atrocious across the board.'

Marker How Jets Let It All Slip Away [5:10 AM]
New York Newsday reports: 'The turning point came when the Jets failed to score after cornerback Ray Mickens' interception on the second play of the third quarter, when the Bills led 7-3.'

Marker Inside slant [5:09 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: '"It got to a point where the Jets wanted nothing more to do with you," Wilson said to Henry.'

Marker Strategy and personnel [5:08 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'The joke going around Ralph Wilson Stadium is that someone must have kidnapped Kevin Gilbride on his way to the game. The embattled Buffalo offensive coordinator has been on the hot seat all year for his suspect play-calling that put too much emphasis on the passing game, but he wisely stuck to the ground against a weak New York rush defense and the results were dazzling.'

Marker Notes, quotes, anecdotes [5:07 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'CB Terrence McGee is making a strong case to become a starter in 2004 if the Bills are unable to re-sign Antoine Winfield. McGee made the first interception of his career against the Jets and has been a solid cover man in nickel and dime packages.'

Marker Three Buffalo Franchises [5:06 AM]
WIVB-TV reports: 'They can talk all they want about circumstances, and execution, but the bottom line, IF Travis Henry had carried the ball more, earlier this season, the Bills would be in the middle of the playoff race.'

Marker The Bills Earn Another Monday Off [5:05 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Williams said Drew Bledsoe called the quarterback sneak on third and five on his own. Bledsoe had noticed a lot of alignment confusion during the game and thought he could take advantage of it. The QB was wrong and Buffalo had to punt.'

Marker Two-game losing skid hasn't hurt Titans' optimism [5:04 AM]
AP reports: '``I got in the car and thought, 'We're not 4-9. We're 9-4. It's OK,''' Fisher said. Maybe so, but what a difference a week makes.'

Marker McNair has MRI on sprained left ankle [10:39 PM]
AP reports: 'Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher said his quarterback won't practice this week.'

Marker Tempo Adjustment [10:30 PM] reports: '“The thing that I noticed as you watch the film is that they picked up the tempo a little bit and we didn't match that tempo,” Edwards said this afternoon. “We didn't match their tempo.”'

Marker The Day After: Gregg Williams Comments [10:27 PM] reports: '"A lot of people think this is a video game. It isn't. Every week there is a matchup and there are human elements into every single game. Sometimes guys are just better at certain techniques and certain schemes. There aren't any magic schemes in the league anymore with certain teams playing more of a certain front or more teams in the box. Our guys (vs. the Jets) were not losing very much on the line of scrimmage in the run front. I think it was our top performance this year as far as knockdowns in the run game. I think we had 40 plus times where we got our guys on the ground. As a defense you don't want to be on the ground very often and our offensive line took them to the ground."'

Marker Bills Players To Host "Shop With A Jock" [10:26 PM] reports: 'Dick’s Sporting Goods will give youngsters from the Salvation Army, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Seneca Nation $100 to spend at their store. Each will be paired up with a Bills player who will help them shop.'

Marker Bills defense emerging among NFL's best this season [8:16 PM]
AP reports: '''Not a drawback. This is the hand that we were dealt,'' Adams said, referring to a season that might be over too soon. ''As men, we accept it and go out and do something about it. We don't have to say, 'We could've been.' We have to say, 'Look, these next three games, this is what we're going to be.''''

Marker Buffalo maintains faint playoff pulse [2:55 PM]
Niagara Falls Reporter reports: 'Buffalo's 17-6 stifling of the New York Jets may not have thrilled the casual fan who needs a long pass every other series and a minimum of two touchdowns per hour to enjoy the game. But for anyone who likes to see a team execute the basic fundamentals of winning football, it was a thing of beauty.'

Marker Bills resuscitate playoff hopes [11:46 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'This performance was exactly what Bills fans’ had expected after Buffalo’s 2-0 start. Instead, there were seven losses in nine games, including a protracted streak of nearly three full games without a touchdown.'

Marker Bills deliver cold dose of reality to Jets [11:45 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'A year after winning the AFC East with a late-season run, the Jets will have to settle for playing out the regular season with nothing at stake (for them) except pride.'

Marker Bills end Jet’s three-game winning streak with 17-6 victory [11:44 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'The crowd of 72,791 featured only 1,176 no-shows, despite temperatures in the low 20s and wind-chill in the low teens.'

Marker No one lays a glove on Henry [9:00 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The way the Buffalo Bills running back tore through the New York Jets' defense, it looked like he possessed superhuman powers. Call him the Teflon Torpedo. If he wasn't running straight through Jets tacklers like a Human Anvil, he was sliding off them as if his entire body was coated with a non-stick surface.'

Marker Jets can't make Bills chuck ground game [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It's very frustrating when you take pride in stopping the run and in November and December teams begin to run the football more," said Jets linebacker Mo Lewis. "We knew what they were doing, but we made mistakes and did not get the job done."'

Marker Bills' sack attack punishes Pennington [8:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"The offense did a good job of putting us in a situation where (the Jets) had to throw the ball," said Schobel, who followed last week's three-sack day with one sack and a load of pressures Sunday. "We blitzed them. We got after them. It was fun out there."'

Marker Adams silences every-down critics [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It's the biggest misconception of a big man, especially after you get up in your years," Takeo Spikes said. "He has a lot of gas left in the tank. A lot of times, he may not make the tackle, but he will make the play. Only people who watch football and study football will see that. His name might not be on the stat sheet, but he created the whole thing."'

Marker Sullivan shines as Jennings' replacement at tackle [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It hasn't been easy not playing," Sullivan said. "It has been a little frustrating because you feel like you can help the team in some capacity. Those are the cards that were dealt to me, so I had to take it. But I didn't have to accept it, though. All I did all season was to prepare myself mentally every week as if I was starting. When my opportunity came today I just wanted to make the most of it."'

Marker Monday Billboard [8:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Our season isn't done yet. We might be on life support, but we haven't flat-lined."'

Marker Hustle of Henry keeps hope afloat [5:20 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“And when we play total defense, the offense puts points up and the special teams are solid, we’re a dominant team. That’s what makes the situation we’re in so disappointing. This team is so much better than what our record shows.”'

Marker Spirited Adams won't let Bills quit [5:19 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The big man outdid himself against the Jets with two sacks, seven tackles, two behind the line of scrimmage, and a batted-down pass, personally thwarting half of the Jets’ 10 possessions. It was fitting that after gobbling up normally elusive quarterback Chad Pennington to force a field goal at the end of a 17-play drive to open the game, Adams celebrated by stretching out his arms like a B-52 bomber and gyrating to the delight of 72,000 frozen patrons.'

Marker In his best NFL game, Bills' Henry is all heart [5:18 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“Travis, you’ve had a lot of great games for us, but this one was the best of them all,” Wilson gushed while pumping the Pro Bowl running back’s hand. “It got to a point where the Jets wanted nothing more to do with you. They didn’t want to hit you anymore because you were delivering all those punishing blows. You really hurt them.”'

Marker At last, the offense catches up [5:17 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'This is how this team should play every game, and it makes you want to scream, “Why haven’t they?”'

Marker Buffalo Bills report card [5:16 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Travis Henry added to his credentials for team Most Valuable Player honors with a career-best 169 yards, his fifth 100-yard outing in his past seven games, hitting the 1,139-mark for the season. Ran with power and smarts, all on that busted fibula. Only error was a late lost fumble. So why did the Bills draft Willis McGahee again?'

Marker Bills get revenge on Jets, win 17-6 [5:15 AM]
Niagara Gazette reports: 'Sam Adams, who had two of the five sacks on Jets quarterback Chad Pennington, said, "We don't have a choice but to think we're going to get in. Someone always gets in every year, 9-7. Always. We play New England. We play Tennessee. We play Miami. As far as we're concerned, they have to go through us to get where they want to be."'
