Buffalo Bills News - December 13, 2004

Marker That's a wrap! [8:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It's about points and attitude," Bills veteran Troy Vincent said of the winning streak. "When you score points, you start believing in yourself, believing in what the coaches are preaching, and you give yourself a great chance to win."'

Marker Browns bothered by big beating [8:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"You usually don't see that a whole lot," Browns tackle Ross Verba said of the Bills' defensive display. "They pretty much just do whatever they want."'

Marker Vincent passes on-the-job training with flying colors [8:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"For his first game back and for as long as he's been out, to play free safety out of the blue and make the plays that he did was outstanding on his part," said Bills coach Mike Mularkey. "Not just his play, but him on the field is a big factor for our defense."'

Marker 'D' solidifies standing as foundation of franchise [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It was a point of emphasis this week," said Milloy, "not to fall into that trap, not to get involved in what people were saying about the playoffs. We were 6-6. We're far away from the playoffs. We all did a good job of keeping ourselves humble and preparing for a team we viewed as a threat. We told ourselves, "Don't let them get started. Let's keep them down. Let them play for next year and let's keep our year alive.' "'

Marker Game plans get buoyed by a bit of Tom's foolery [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I think coach Clements is really doing a good job of putting a steady stream of plays together, and then he comes with something special," Greer said. "The way that he balances out the things that we do really does a good job with timing and catching the defense off guard."'

Marker Uneven offense able to pile it on [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It was the Bills' fourth consecutive game with at least 37 points. They have 154 points in the last four games.'

Marker Bills host a smackdown [8:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: Player of the game: Bills linebacker Takeo Spikes recorded seven tackles, one sack and two forced fumbles.

Marker Grading the Bills [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Run defense (A+): It looked like the Bills were playing with 15 versus the Browns' 11. D-line and linebackers were Tasmanian devils.'

Marker The whole 17 yards [5:43 AM]
Cleveland Plain Dealer reports: '"Ultimately, there was a point it was men against boys, to be honest," Robiskie said. "I thought the speed of the game, the tempo, the environment, the crowd, the weather, the noise - all of it was too big for a couple kids, and one was Luke. I thought all of it rattled Luke early, and I don't think he ever recovered."'

Marker Bills' defense a recipe for Browns' disaster [5:42 AM]
Cleveland Plain Dealer reports: '"We were doing some new pressures, fire zones and blitzes that we hadn't shown before," said Fletcher. "Really, once we were having success with blitzing, Jerry [Gray, defensive coordinator] just stayed with it and we were able to create all kinds of pressure on their quarterback."'

Marker Lip fattened, QB flattened in Buffalo stampede [5:41 AM]
Cleveland Plain Dealer reports: 'McCown admitted he'll have nightmares of 335-pound tackle Sam Adams falling on him, as Adams did several times Sunday, including twice on sacks. "The first time he fell on my head I got up and was kind of dizzy," McCown said. "Sam knows my brother from Texas A&M. I tried to tell him that Randy said hello, and I don't think I could spit it out because my head was turning like that."'

Marker A no show in Buffalo [5:10 AM]
Lorain Morning Journal reports: 'The Browns turned the ball over five times and totaled a meager 17 net yards of offense, and even that is deceiving because they gained 19 yards on their last two possessions while the Bills backups played.'

Marker Browns set record with 17 yards of net offense against Bills [5:10 AM]
Akron Beacon Journal reports: '``They blitzed and they rattled Luke. He got nervous, they shook him up early, and I don't think he recovered from it.'''

Marker McCown survives Buffalo blitz [5:10 AM]
Akron Beacon Journal reports: 'Making his second NFL start, McCown discovered what it was like to have a 350-pound beer keg fall on him. Only this one had two legs, two arms and a head bigger than a microwave -- and goes by the name of Sam Adams.'

Marker Futile offense spoils defensive effort [5:10 AM]
Canton Repository reports: '“At halftime, I told the guys the defense was playing their hearts out,” interim Head Coach Terry Robiskie said. “Offensively, not only were we not helping them, we were hurting them.”'

Marker Buffalo tees off on McCown with seven sacks [5:10 AM]
Canton Repository reports: '“I think we were in the same situation getting beat by 25 or 30 in the fourth quarter,” McCown said. “There’s not a whole lot you can do when you haven’t been able to execute all day. The only difference is Buffalo kept coming with pressure, and New England showed mercy.”'

Marker Browns briefs [5:09 AM]
Canton Repository reports: 'The Bills were 0-4 and given up for dead. Now they are 7-6, a playoff contender that could be dangerous. “Who counted the Bills out? Shame on you if you did,” safety Lawyer Milloy said.'

Marker Bills swarm Browns, roll to win [5:09 AM] reports: 'The Browns had two yards of total offense, committed three turnovers and gave up four sacks in the first half.'

Marker McGahee goes over 100 again [5:09 AM] reports: 'Willis McGahee recorded his sixth 100-yard rushing game this season. Not surprisingly, the Bills have won all six.'

Marker Offense hits new low in loss [5:09 AM] reports: 'But the Pats couldn't blitz. Their secondary was too banged up to provide the necessary one-on-one coverage to make blitzes work. But that wasn't the case with the Bills. Their secondary is talented and healthy. So Buffalo came after McCown with a series of blitzes and stunts from all angles. It knocked him for a loop physically and mentally. "It affected him. It rattled him," Robiskie said. "And I don't know if he recovered from it."'

Marker Bills offer prolific pounding [5:03 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"You don't go into a game plan like that, it just happens," said defensive coordinator Jerry Gray. "You would never say you're going to stop an offense like that, it just happened today. We had a great effort from the guys on the field."'

Marker Bills display a mean streak in rout [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'For nine weeks now, a span in which they've compiled a 7-2 record to climb above .500 at 7-6, the Bills have been kicking a whole bunch of rented NFL mules.'

Marker McCown thrown to the wolves [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'It was a disaster. How about 17 net yards of offense, six first downs and a passer rating of 25.4 in Cleveland's laughable 37-7 loss to the Bills. When Robiskie was serving as Davis' offensive coordinator, Garcia had made some public statements about how he felt the offense was too predictable, and Robiskie didn't like it. It almost seems as if Robiskie was trying to make a statement by not starting Garcia. If he was, the only statement he made was that he's not cut out to be a head coach.'

Marker New position, but same big plays from Vincent [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"The guy's a very bright guy," said Bills strong safety Lawyer Milloy. "I knew he'd take to it like he had playing there all his life."'

Marker Two-minute read [4:59 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Words cannot describe how pathetic that performance was by the Browns, all the way across the board.'

Marker Report card [4:58 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Defensive line: This unit was possessed with Sam Adams, Pat Williams, Aaron Schobel and Chris Kelsay combining for 11 tackles, 4 sacks, 1 forced fumble and 1 fumble recovery. Adams, particularly, was nearly unstoppable against overmatched Browns' center Jeff Faine, recording two sacks. Schobel's sack/forced fumble against Jeff Garcia early in the fourth quarter knocked out the veteran QB. A+'

Marker D-day for Browns [4:57 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'Whether unwilling or incapable, the Browns were not up to the physical battle. At one point early in the fourth quarter, the Cleveland offence had produced a total of minus-two yards. With no line to protect him, no running game to move the ball and no receivers capable of getting open, McCown was sacked seven times for losses of 74 yards and picked off twice.'

Marker Buffalo may be playing for pride [4:56 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'With only two spots available, the task is tough considering as it stands now, the Ravens, Broncos and Jags would all beat the Bills in tiebreaking scenarios.'

Marker Vincent to the rescue for Buffalo Bills [4:55 AM]
Toronto Star reports: '"It was a long eight weeks," Vincent said. "I was the best cheerleader I could be, but I'm not a real vocal guy. I was standing on the sidelines holding five or six hats for guys. They kept saying I was good luck."'
