Buffalo Bills News - October 2, 2005

Marker Deuce carries Saints to win over Bills [5:12 PM]
The Sports Network reports: '.P. Losman finished an awful 7-of-15 passing for 75 yards with one interception and was replaced by Kelly Holcomb in the fourth quarter.'

Marker Bills lose third straight 19-7 [5:11 PM] reports: '...falling apart at the seams.'

Marker Inside the Herd: TE Tim Euhus [3:33 PM] reports: 'You just have to keep pushing through. If you want to play bad enough you are willing to push the injury and do the extra rehab and the extra work. It’s frustrating at times, Bobby April talks about the mental battle always going on and you just can’t let the bad guy win. You got to stay and be tough and keep going after it.'

Marker Jerman to Start at RT for Williams [3:32 PM] reports: 'In only his second career NFL start last weekend against Atlanta, Jerman helped pave the way for a game-high and career-high 140 yards by running back Willis McGahee.'

Marker Buffalo at New Orleans [12:59 PM] reports: "Hopefully, it's going to be 65,000," he said of the turnout at the Alamodome. "I just know they probably won't be cheering for Buffalo, so at lease we won't have to deal with the crowd noise we've dealt with the last three weeks."

Marker Bills stuck in neutral [8:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Still, it appears San Antonio would be a tough sell to NFL owners. The region is loyal to the Cowboys. The local Fox affiliate plans to show the Cowboys games instead of the Saints games when both teams are on the road at the same time later this season.'

Marker Bills and Saints both seek to put an end to ugly trend [8:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Saints 23, Bills 17.'

Marker Though Spikes is gone, his desire can't be forgotten [8:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Now the reality is setting in. This was only an average team at best.'

Marker Kicking it up a notch [8:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"The misses are definitely in bolder ink on the stat sheet. That's how it is, but that's the job I signed up for," Lindell said. "What anybody says or thinks isn't going to make the goal posts any wider, and it's not going to give me a better ball for kickoffs."'

Marker Bills' pass defense will miss LB Spikes [6:28 AM]
Cincinnati Enquirer reports: 'Spikes, a two-time Pro Bowler with the Bills, had successful surgery in Alabama this past week to repair the Achilles' tendon in his right leg. But it's a long recovery from the injury, a full 10 months to a year.'

Marker Break from reality [6:22 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'But as grateful as the Saints are for the support, coach Jim Haslett says its time to put the sympathy angle behind them. "We need to get this football team on track," Haslett said following Friday's practice. "We haven't played as well as we would like ... we're going to try to fix this (today)."'

Marker Time for Bills to wake up [5:03 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"It's too early to panic," Donahoe said last week. "You can see in just one weekend a lot of things happened in our division (with injuries). Things can change quickly in football, but we've got to play better as a team."'

Marker Saints finally get home-field advantage [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Veteran wide receiver Joe Horn, the team's lead spokesman during these trying weeks, said it'd be easy to use Katrina as an excuse. But he won't go there. "Collectively, we're mad, angry and (ticked) off," he said.'

Marker Saints embrace recovery role in New Orleans [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"We're part of New Orleans, so they're attached to us wherever we go," said Saints receiver Joe Horn, who has led a campaign that has raised nearly $500,000 for the Bayou's evacuees. "We have to pick up the pieces and keep on moving. You have to keep on stepping because if you don't you're going to be flat on your back the rest of your life."'

Marker Bills Q&A: Josh Reed [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'You're in your fourth year and you still haven't made a big mark in the NFL. Are you disappointed with the way your career has gone so far? "Disappointed is such a bad word. I could definitely perform better than the way I have, but I have to stay positive about it and keep myself grounded."'

Marker Bills head south with some big concerns [4:59 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Both teams opened with impressive wins, Buffalo handling Houston and New Orleans beating the Panthers in Charlotte on a last-play field goal. Since then, though, each club has struggled. The Bills were manhandled at Tampa Bay and stampeded at home against the Falcons while the Saints imploded in a “home” game against the Giants at the Meadowlands and a week later in Minnesota. However, New Orleans has an excuse.'

Marker Defense falling short of Bills' expectations [4:58 AM]
San Antonio Express News reports: '"Really, we've had a bunch of guilty culprits," he said. "It's been addressed. We have good veteran leadership over there, and we'll see how we respond to it."'

Marker Saints host Bills in Alamodome [5:41 PM] reports: 'New Orleans hasn't played any team fewer times that was in the league when the club began play.'

Marker Saints finally get to play for `home' crowd [5:02 PM]
AP reports: '"We've just got to be able to score points," said receiver Eric Moulds. "It's good to get in the red zone, get three points here and there. But you've got to score touchdowns eventually. We've scored, what, one or two?"'

Marker Losman ready to let loose on throws [9:17 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"That's the way I'm approaching this whole week, with so much confidence," Losman said. "I already told the receivers (on Wednesday) get their head around quick because I'm going to start humming it like I used to and I feel more accurate that way."'

Marker Saints' defensive line good to go [9:16 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Bills right tackle Greg Jerman is likely to make his second career start at right tackle. Starter Mike Williams was not able to practice Friday and remains questionable. Coach Mike Mularkey said Williams' status will be a game-time decision. Jerman likely will see each of the Saints' three defensive ends during the game. The Saints rotate their defensive ends along all four spots on the defensive line in passing situations.'

Marker Katrina's waters can't sink resolve of Miller [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Miller is the former vice president/administration for the Buffalo Bills. He held similar posts with the Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints. But after 20 years of walking the front-office halls of the NFL, after two decades of contracts and salary caps, he returned to New Orleans two years ago in search of something more noble, teaching at the University of New Orleans and helping his wife, Jean, a native of the city, open a business selling women's active wear.'

Marker Bills QB Losman hopes to reverse downward spiral [5:01 AM]
Baton Rouge Advocate reports: '"We started off on a high note and we've just kind of gotten into a funk here," Losman said this week. "I've just got to go out there and play and throw the ball like I know how to with some authority, throw it with some confidence, not trying to be too perfect, trying to aim the ball a little bit, trying not to miss as opposed to just throwing it and having that confidence to know that you're not going to miss and if you do miss, oh well, just get it the next play."'

Marker Bills owner's wife named to U.S. tennis team [6:58 PM]
AP reports: 'Wilson, 60, won the U.S. Tennis Association's 60-and-older singles and doubles national indoor titles in August and has won five major tournaments this season. She is presently ranked No. 2 nationally in singles and third in doubles in the age division.'

Marker Mexico City to Host Sunday Night Game [5:26 PM] reports: 'While Buffalo has never played in Mexico, there is no shortage of Bills fans in the country.'

Marker Bills-Saints Statistical Breakdown [5:26 PM] reports: 'After three straight road games to start the season, the Saints will get a week that resembles a home game -- at least in terms of preparation -- when they face the Buffalo Bills.'

Marker Wire And Williams Still Not On The Field [2:39 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Mike Williams and Coy Wire are still not at practice this week. Mike Mularkey said on Friday he'll see how they are on Sunday. Williams hasn't practiced in two weeks so I'd be shocked to see him in uniform.'

Marker Bills' offense must get on track early against Saints [12:18 PM] reports: 'As for the outcome, it all depends on whether the Buffalo Buffalo's passing game can exploit the Saints' depleted secondary, and if Buffalo's run defense can actually stop someone for a change. However, if the Saints defense and running game step up, it should be an easy day for them in Texas.'
