Marker There's no zoning out Texans' blitz [9:14 AM]

Marker The Chosen 1s [9:14 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I'm excited about those guys," said Bills Assistant General Manager Tom Modrak. "I watch them every day, and they're playmakers. That's the name of the game. Somebody's got to make a play on offense, defense and special teams. They have the capability. Will it always happen? Probably not. But if you don't have the guys who can make the plays, you can scheme and plan and hope all you want to, but you can only get so far."'

Marker Giving Losman keys to the car could set up Donahoe for a crash [9:14 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Chances are, it'll take a couple of years to find out about Losman. He'll have good games and bad ones.

Marker Confident Lindell lined up and ready [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'We used a bunch of snappers one week that got him out of sync, but he's got to perform," special teams coach Bobby April said. "It doesn't matter if I went out there and snapped for him, he's got to put it through no matter what. I feel good about him. I think he's a good kicker. ...

Houston Chronicle reports: '"It's difficult for me and for many guys throughout the NFL, who have had memories there or who went to school there," said Losman, a native of Venice, Calif., who is among many NFL players helping to provide relief to survivors of Katrina. "I think it's a tremendous city, one of America's great cities, and it's underwater right now. All my memories and my old stopping ground. It's sad to see not only New Orleans people but any people — especially in this country — needing something. It's just been a tough situation. "'
