Pittsburgh Tribune Review reports: 'It happened in 1965, Schottenheimer's rookie year as a back-up linebacker, when the Bills defeated the San Diego Chargers, 23-0, in the AFL Championship.

Butch Byrd might have lost his helmet under the bench or something. Anyway, 40 years later, the city of Buffalo and the 61-year-old Schottenheimer are both still looking for their next championship. Both have lost so many times, in such agonizing fashion, that you almost wish they'd stop trying.'

Rochester D&C reports: '"To be honest, if J.P. had been ready this year, they would have gone to him," Kelly said. "But I don't think J.P. is ready yet mentally. Physically, he has it all. He's got the arm strength, he's a good athlete who can move around and he's a tough kid. But I think it's still going to take time for him to develop the knowledge you need at this level.

They've seen some tape on Vinny, and even though it's all indoor tape, they think he has a strong leg and lot of potential because he's only 21 years old."'
