Buffalo Bills News - December 10, 2002

Marker Math says no playoffs for Bills [5:30 AM]
D and C reports: 'WHO was secretly hoping that San Diego’s Drew Brees suffered some type of injury against the Raiders -- nothing terrible, mind you, but just serious enough for him to miss this game against the Bills and force San Diego to start Doug Flutie in his return to the Ralph. Come on you Flutie Fanatics, admit it.'

Marker Pats find winning formula [5:29 AM]
Boston Herald reports: 'The Bills have been successful because of the big play ability of their quarterback and wide receivers. Both Moulds and Peerless Price have already passed the 1,000-yard mark and came into the game averaging 14 yards a catch. They did have 17 catches between them but Law, Otis Smith and Terrell Buckley combined to limit big plays.'

Marker Brady Bowls Over Bledsoe [5:28 AM]
Hartford Courant reports: 'How would Bledsoe fare against this Bills defense? How would Brady fare against this Patriots defense? We'll never know. All we know is that Brady's Patriots are better than Bledsoe's Bills. Everything else is background noise.'

Marker Humbled McKenzie set for Hall [5:27 AM]
Detroit Free Press reports: 'For about three decades, McKenzie has represented U-M and Highland Park in more impressive ways than this. In 1974, as a star lineman with the Buffalo Bills, McKenzie decided to help his community. So he started a football camp in his hometown of Highland Park, which he proudly calls "the capital of Detroit."'

Marker Brees' job safe with Chargers [5:26 AM]
AP reports: '''We're definitely living on the edge. ... We've got a few plays with Flutie at wide receiver,'' Schottenheimer said on Monday, a day after the Chargers' damaging 27-7 home loss to the rival Oakland Raiders (9-4), who now have control of the AFC West as well as the conference's best record. ''I'm serious,'' Schottenheimer said after his comments drew a few laughs at his weekly news conference. ''Sure. Why not?'''

Marker Levy's Week 14 snapshot [10:40 PM] reports: Do the Patriots have Drew Bledsoe's number?

Bledsoe did some good things, it's just that he is having to force the ball, he is having to be predictable because they were playing from behind all day. He had to be bold, and it didn't work against a pretty good defensive team.

There were five takeaways (four interceptions) in the game and the Bills got none. You can't win, I don't care what the rest of the statistics are.

Marker Winfield: 'I don't think we have a chance' [8:16 PM]

Marker It was the homecoming from hell [1:36 PM]
Quincy Patriot Ledger reports: '‘‘I thought the first-down play (a run by Travis Henry) was a big play because Ted Johnson stopped him for a 1-yard loss,'' Belichick said. ‘‘After a play like that, especially with a team on the road, you kind of anticipate they will throw on second down. Willie McGinest did a good job of forcing Bledsoe back off the line of scrimmage. It was a good play by Tebucky Jones, a lot better than the one he dropped later on.'''

Marker Patriots stage a pick-and-strip show vs. Bills [1:35 PM]
Quincy Patriot Ledger reports: 'Yes, the Bills got their yards - 390 of them to be exact, compared to 275 for the Pats, but while Buffalo defenders were whiffing on open-field tackles and failing to make big plays, their Patriots counterparts were picking (off) and stripping (free).'
