Buffalo Bills News - October 26, 2003

Marker The Scouting Report [5:19 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Statistically, Kansas City's defense looks porous. It ranks 27th overall and 31st in rushing yards allowed per attempt. However, in this case the numbers are deceiving. These are the key stats: The Chiefs are No. 1 in the NFL with 20 takeaways, and a respectable 12th in points allowed.'

Marker Q&A: Rian Lindell [5:18 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'OK, how do you plan to kick off to Dante Hall?
“Punting is a little more challenging because the Chiefs can do more, but I think on kickoffs, you just have to kick it solid and give your coverage team a chance.” '

Marker AFC East ranks as deepest NFL division [5:17 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Bills rate a notch below Miami defensively (despite what the stats say) but they also have all the pieces to field the division’s best-balanced offense. Lack of consistency has been the team’s biggest problem.'

Marker Vermeil concerned about Bills’ improved defense [5:16 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'And, oh yeah, the Chiefs lead the AFC with a plus-11 giveaway/takeaway ratio. It all adds up to a major test for Buffalo in one of the NFL’s toughest venues.'

Marker Vermeil has succeeded on merit [5:15 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Vermeil is 3-0 against Buffalo — having beaten them as coach of the Eagles, Rams and Chiefs — the best record he has against any of the 31 teams he’s faced.'

Marker Dante an inferno [5:14 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: '"It's been very frustrating," Hall said. "Now we're to the point where we don't know what (the kicker) is doing. It's tough on my guys blocking for me because you really can't get back and get set. That's why we were so successful the first four weeks because the timing was down."'

Marker Chiefs, Bills share history and championship hunger [5:13 AM]
Kansas City Star reports: 'Their owners are living, breathing embodiments of pro football history. Buffalo's Ralph Wilson and Kansas City's Lamar Hunt helped establish the AFL. With the six other AFL owners, they were called the "Foolish Club" -- although Wilson and Hunt didn't look so foolish when they helped push through the AFL-NFL merger in 1970.'

Marker Bledsoe looking for a little help [5:12 AM]
Kansas City Star reports: '"Yeah, we need to go on the road and beat a good team," Bledsoe said. "No question. That's where we have to make our progress. That's what good teams do, and if we want to win a championship around here, that's what we have to do."'

Marker Bills just another team now to Chiefs QB Collins [5:11 AM]
Kansas City Star reports: '"I do think about it," he said. "But they've been through two quarterbacks since then, too. They brought in Rob Johnson, and then they brought in (Doug) Flutie. I don't know if I really wanted to be a part of that."'

Marker You can't argue with perfection [5:10 AM]
Kansas City Star reports: 'See, you can't be, as so many commentators have griped about the Chiefs the last week, an imperfect 7-0, any more than you can score an imperfect 1600 on the SAT or go an imperfect five for five in baseball. Perfect is perfect. Sure, the Chiefs needed incredible Dante Hall returns to clinch victories against Baltimore and Denver, an interception and fumble against Green Bay, a tackle at the 1-yard line against Oakland. But you know what? They got every one of those things.'

Marker Chiefs out to show they're more than lucky [5:09 AM]
Topeka Capital Journal reports: 'A team pegged for the Super Bowl after season-opening wins over New England and Jacksonville, the Bills were prematurely assigned to the Toilet Bowl after a 30-3 loss to the Jets and an overtime win over the Bengals. But with Travis Henry fully healthy again and running for a career-high 167 yards last week, the Bills are a solid 4-3 after their season-high 432-yard offensive performance -- despite the absence of leading receiver Eric Moulds -- in a convincing 24-7 win over Washington.'

Marker Chiefs' perfect start isn't perfect [5:08 AM]
Wichita Eagle reports: 'As a matter of fact, the Bills do see a crack of light. "You do get a little more juiced up for a team that looks like it's trying to run away with the season," Buffalo quarterback Drew Bledsoe said. "We know this game, we know everyone has a flaw. Of course, Kansas City isn't perfect. Of course they can be beaten. We're going in there thinking we're going to be the ones to do it."'

Marker Keep him in mind [5:07 AM]
Wichita Eagle reports: 'But teams are getting better and better at avoiding kicking to Hall, who had returned kicks for touchdowns in an NFL-record four straight games before being shut out the last two weeks. Buffalo has promised to give Hall the same treatment. "Boy, that makes me mad," Hall said. "It's like if you're trying to play video games, and you're so good that no one will play you. Then you don't get to play, so it's not fun anymore. It's the same thing. I want to play."'

Marker Holmes heart of Chiefs offense [5:06 AM]
St. Petersburg Times reports: '"The most dangerous thing they do with Priest is they give him a lot of different things to do," defensive tackle Sam Adams said. "If he runs up the middle and you stack the middle, then he runs to the perimeter, then they give him a draw, then they give him a screen. They change the personnel and do a lot of shifts and motions to try to disguise their basic plays. They get him the ball a lot of different ways."'

Marker Chiefs to take on inconsistent Bills [5:05 AM]
AP reports: 'Williams' Buffalo Bills stand 4-3 because, unlike the more-fortunate Chiefs, fate keeps insisting they pay for their mistakes.'

Marker Sedgwick's Moorman gets to play Dante Game [5:04 AM]
AP reports: 'Moorman currently ranks third in the league, averaging 47.6 yards, and sixth when factoring in return yards. Impressive for a guy with a slim 6-foot, 175-pound frame.'

Marker Moulds Is Improving. Has A Chance To Play In K.C. [6:57 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Moulds did well, but Williams says he'll still need to work out Sunday to see if he can play. He's missed two weeks with a slightly torn groin. Sammy Morris is in the same boat according to the head coach.'

Marker Q&A QB Trent Green [5:07 PM]
kcchiefs.com reports: 'Q: Do you think those comments about shutting down (RB) Priest Holmes will motivate this team? GREEN: “I hope it doesn’t take something like that to motivate this team. The bulletin board material. I would like to think that guys are prepared whether someone says something or not. If that helps motivate their team, that’s great. We know we are at home and we haven’t been at home in over three weeks. We have had two great road victories. We are anticipating the crown being fired up and on national television, making it as difficult as possible for Buffalo. That’s what this team is focused on.”'

Marker Key match-ups [5:01 PM]
kcchiefs.com reports: 'The reason Holliday will be licking his chops on Sunday is that the last time he faced the Western New York foes (12/22/02) he racked up a career-high and Packer record 5.0 sacks while playing in the Green and Gold.'

Marker The franchise builder [8:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"He's the main reason I'm in the NFL right now," said Bills linebacker London Fletcher, who signed with the Rams as an undrafted free agent from John Carroll University in 1998. "He's the rare coach who really gave free agents, undrafted free agents, long shots, a true opportunity to make the football team and not look at them as just a (training) camp body. He really had a lot of confidence in my abilities. He put himself on the line and took a chance, and it worked out well for both of us."'

Marker Moulds passes test, may play Sunday [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills conducted a rare Friday night practice in the team's field house. Williams changed the schedule to get his team prepared for Sunday night's game. Williams said that it was the best practice of the week. "It was very crisp," he said.'

Marker Competition at The Ralph [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Approximately 125 boys and girls who have qualified for the NFL Punt, Pass and Kick sectional competition will showcase their skills today from 1:15 to 4 p.m. in the Ralph Wilson Fieldhouse.'

Marker Sales of Bills merchandise soar [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It is significantly better than last year and last year was a great year," said Jay Mininger, vice president of marketing at Dick's. "Winning makes a huge difference and the influx of new players has helped." Lawyer Milloy, Sam Adams and Takeo Spikes are some of the new faces boosting sales. And even though Willis McGahee hasn't played yet, people are snatching up his jersey.'

Marker Winning is never out of style with Vermeil [5:15 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Fletcher believes Vermeil has a soft spot in his heart for long shots because he was one himself. “I think his own coaching background, the way he came up through the ranks of high school, junior college and college, influenced him,” Fletcher says. “He had to work hard at it. He wasn’t given anything. So he appreciates the guys who have had to battle to get to the position they are in.”'

Marker Going gonzo [5:14 AM]
Kansas City Star reports: '“We're 7-0, are you kidding me?” Gonzalez said. “I understand that this window of opportunity is so small. To win in the NFL. We have a chance to do some damage coming up here if we can get in the playoffs. Hopefully we can get to the Super Bowl. I'm having a great time."'

Marker Chiefs notes [5:13 AM]
Kansas City Star reports: 'R-Kal Truluck, the right defensive end in passing situations before he sprained an ankle three weeks ago, took his normal turn in practice and appeared ready for Sunday's game against Buffalo at Arrowhead Stadium.'

Marker Chiefs should be healthy [5:12 AM]
Topeka Capital Journal reports: 'After missing the last two Buffalo games with a groin injury, Bills standout receiver Eric Moulds -- who has averaged 15 yards on each of his 30 catches in only five games -- could be closing to returning to action against the Chiefs. Bills coach Gregg Williams said Friday that Moulds had taken a decent number of practice repetitions this week and appeared close to playing Sunday night. Williams said Moulds might have been able to play in last week's Buffalo upset of Washington, but was held out as a precautionary measure.'

October 24, 2003

Marker KC hoping for help from home crowd [4:01 PM]
AP reports: '''It's one of the noisiest stadiums in the league,'' said Bills coach Gregg Williams. ''They're on a roll and the Chiefs are playing well. It can be a very frustrating place to play at, executing and doing what we're supposed to do. It's got a great reputation as being one of the most difficult places to play on the road.'''

Marker Shooting for consistency [1:01 PM]
The Sports Network reports: 'Look for the Bills to do their best to get Henry going early in this contest. They may have to mix things up a bit, though, as the Chiefs will surely be determined to shut Henry down.'

Marker Schobel: It's a Simple Game [11:45 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '"I struggled in Kansas City last year. I didn't have a good game, so I have to show them I can play this time around."'
