Marker No winners in Erie County budget crisis [12:48 PM]
AP reports: 'In the meantime, Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly and his son, Hunter, will be celebrating their shared Valentine's Day birthday at the Buffalo Bills Field House instead of Chestnut Ridge Park, which for five years has been the site of Hunter's Day of Hope for Children but is now closed due to the county's fiscal plight. The annual event raises research money for nervous system diseases, like the deadly Krabbe's disease that afflicts Hunter.'

Marker You have to tip your cap to Moulds [12:32 PM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Moulds hasn't always been happy playing for the Bills. He's complained at times about the offense and his role in it. There were times he wondered if he had a future in Buffalo. But those feelings were born out of frustration. There's no place Moulds would rather be than Buffalo. He likes living and playing here. There is something to be said for loyalty, and agreeing to a contract extension shows that Moulds is committed to the Bills.'

Marker South O'Brien to honor hometown hero [5:19 AM]
Sioux City Journal reports: 'The Bills have exclusive free rights to Stamer, so he'll find out around March 1 whether he'll be playing there again next season. If he does, Buffalo can sign him for the third-year minimum salary. That, of course, is the the probable scenario, but if the Bills don't sign him, then he'll try to catch on with another team.'

Marker Moulds Contract Extension [10:05 PM] reports: 'Moulds is signed through the 2006 season, the result of a six year extension agreed to in 2001. The new deal would allow the Bills to receive salary cap relief for 2005.'

Marker Bills Defense Looks to Shine in Hawaii [4:01 PM] reports: '"Collectively, when you have someone get selected for something like this it stands for a unit being successful," Adams said upon hearing he had been selected to his third Pro Bowl. "One person can't have any success without 10 other guys being there. If one person on the defense isn't doing their job then it's going to be a bad defense. When you have a solid defense that makes plays you have people that get recognized and it's because of everyone."'

Marker Offseason Game Plan: Bills [2:14 PM] reports: 'Once the Henry situation is resolved, all eyes will be on the expected quarterback battle between veteran Drew Bledsoe and 2004 first-round pick J.P. Losman. Bledsoe had a decent 2004, but the Bills didn't trade up for Losman just to keep him on the bench. Even if Bledsoe gets the starting nod, he'll probably be just a poor outing or two away from giving up the keys to his young understudy.'

Marker Moulds to get new deal [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'While terms of the negotiations were not available, Moulds will likely receive just as much money this year, but his cap figure would go down significantly because the money would get spread out, for cap purposes, for more seasons.'

Marker Pochman Looking to Kick Start NFL Career [4:30 PM] reports: '"I was out of football all last year and I've worked really hard on my form and the flaws that I had before to cause me to lose a job and be out of football for a year," Pochman said from his home in Las Vegas, Nevada. "I really worked hard and I'm hoping to go over to NFL Europe and show everybody I still have what it takes to become a successful kicker in the NFL."'

Marker The real money players [12:40 PM]
Boston Herald reports: 'Lawyer Milloy's little ditty during a recent interview on WEEI had to be one of the most ridiculous lines ever uttered by an athlete.'

Marker Much more than money [6:02 AM]

Marker Bills Team Report [5:35 AM]
The Sporting News reports: 'After a strong rookie year, WR Josh Reed's play has been in decline the past two seasons. He needs to a strong offseason to show the team he still can be an effective No. 3 receiver. Reed is a good route runner, but needs to get more separation from defenders. He entered the NFL with a reputation as a sure-handed receiver. But he's dropped an alarming number of passes the past two seasons. He has to strengthen his concentration and play with more confidence. If Reed doesn't show progress, the team will replace him with someone on the roster or in free agency and/or the draft.'

He told me, 'Cris, now that you'll be there, I don't have to worry about it. I can just concentrate and take care of my family.'"'

Marker Giants' win a super example of strategy [9:26 AM]
Florida Times Union reports: 'For the game, the Giants held the ball a Super Bowl-record 40:33; the Bills just 19:27. The game's best player was Thomas, who had 190 yards (135 rushing, 55 receiving): He averaged an amazing 9.77 yards per minute his offense was on the field. But the game's best team was the Giants. Their strategy worked, and they won what many people think was the most exciting Super Bowl.'

Marker NFL heading north of border? [5:34 AM]
Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel reports: 'Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, in his annual state of the league address Friday, held out strong hope for a franchise in Canada, but his mention of the city of Toronto might not sit well with Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson, whose small market team is bouyed by fans from Toronto. The cities are separated by about a two-hour drive.'

Marker Tagliabue tackles TV, LA franchise and minority hiring issues [5:33 AM]
AP reports: 'Tagliabue also noted the NFL might stage a game that counts outside U.S. borders. The league is considering a game in Mexico or Canada, perhaps as soon as the upcoming schedule. Prime candidates to sacrifice a game in their home stadium would be the Cardinals for Mexico or the Bills for Canada, although Tagliabue mentioned no specific teams.'

Marker Interview: Jack Kemp [9:31 PM]
Sports Fan Magazine reports: 'Oh, no! Do you have a rooting interest here? Are you an Eagles fan?
JK: I’m a Pats fan. I’m a Tom Brady guy. I love the Eagles—my son played for the Eagles—but I think Tom Brady is about as close to Joe Montana as you will see.'

Marker Kemp: Brady can parlay popularity into politics [6:40 AM]
New York Newsday reports: 'Kemp had even fewer believers; he was a 17th-round draft choice who was cut by three NFL teams and had the queasy and humbling experience of being dumped by the Canadian league. None of those setbacks broke the spirit of an eternal optimist, who saw the newly formed American Football League as another chance in 1960. He started with the San Diego Chargers, who lost the first two AFL title games, then joined the Buffalo Bills, who won a pair of championships with a quarterback who didn't ring up big numbers but was clever and could always be counted on when the situation grew tense.'
