Buffalo Bills News - September 9, 2002

Marker Becht a Big Target for Big Plays [5:54 AM]
New York Newsday reports: 'It wasn't just that Becht caught four passes for 36 yards - including a touchdown - and a two-point conversion, it was the way he did it. Becht caught balls in heavy traffic. And his best statistic of the afternoon? Zero drops.'

Marker Sprained Ankle Sidelines Curtis [5:53 AM]
New York Newsday reports: 'After the game, Martin was fitted with a walking boot and hooked up to an electric stimulator, but he didn't need crutches.'

Marker Special Teams Get Two-for-One Deal [5:53 AM]
New York Newsday reports: '"To have two [returns] go back, block a punt and cover the way we did," Westhoff said, "not too many special teams have ever done that."'

Marker Darling Gets Reprieve After Cover Mistake [5:52 AM]
New York Newsday reports: 'Jets nickel linebacker Darling took responsibility for the coverage breakdown that led to Eric Moulds' 29-yard touchdown reception that tied the game at 31 with 26 seconds left in regulation. Coach Herman Edwards blamed the lack of a pass rush, which gave Drew Bledsoe time to pump-fake and hit Moulds in between three defenders just over the goal line on fourth-and-9.'

Marker Morton's TD return ends thriller in OT [5:51 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'In a seesaw battle in which there were six lead changes and two ties, and the Jets' vaunted defense didn't live up to expectations.'

Marker Testaverde flashes a dash of the past [5:51 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'Testaverde turned in a vintage performance, completing 24 of 30 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns. Wasn't intercepted once, and didn't make even one of the regrettable throws that seemed to pockmark every game last year.'

Marker Bledsoe's late dramatics keep Bills afloat [5:50 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: '"It was a double pump and the linebacker didn't get deep enough," Jets coach Herman Edwards said. "The point isn't to blame someone. It was a great play on their part. We didn't get there on the rush. (Bledsoe) had too much time. If you give a guy that much time, the zone breaks down."'

Marker Injured Martin uncertain for Pats [5:49 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'Martin, who has been amazingly durable during his five seasons with the Jets, will be re-examined today. X-rays at the stadium were negative.'

Marker A day of clicking and screaming for the Mortons [5:49 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'On the field at Ralph Wilson Stadium, Chad Morton could feel the life spilling out of his legs, so he began to bargain with them. "Come on now!" he yelled, into the desperate din of 72,751 voices. "Don't get caught! Don't fall down! Just a little bit more! Just a little bit more!"'

Marker Instant returns [5:49 AM]
Bergen Record reports: '"They had a great game plan for us offensively," said strong safety Sam Garnes, one of the new starters. "Bledsoe was just a warrior out there. We have a lot of respect for him, and I have even more because I haven't played him as much as my teammates. He played a hell of a game. I have to give him his props."'

Marker More than pure speed [5:49 AM]
Bergen Record reports: 'As wide receiver Wayne Chrebet observed, "Chad's starting to write his ticket to the Pro Bowl already."'

Marker Morton, Jets make special delivery [5:48 AM]

Marker Martin not hurt badly [5:48 AM]

Marker Unspecial teams rob Bills, Bledsoe of good effort [5:48 AM]

Marker Drew shines, but Jets steal show [5:46 AM]
Boston Herald reports: 'Even those who believe Drew Bledsoe is a better quarterback than Tom Brady must admit this: When it comes to winning, Brady gets the breaks and Bledsoe does not.'

Marker Jets ruin Bledsoe's debut 37-31 [5:40 AM]
USA Today reports: 'Alas for Buffalo, Drew Bledsoe cannot play special teams.'

Marker Week 1: Bills-Jets Postgame Quotebook [7:18 PM] reports: "It was a wild game with a lot of big plays up and down the field. It was great to see Drew make some big plays and he kept us in the ball game. Defensively they really played with their backs to the wall and overcame a bunch of things during the ball game. We gave up too many big plays and the big play that beat us at the end of the ball game."

Marker Jets 37, Bills 31, OT [4:44 PM]
AP reports: 'Bledsoe, acquired to spark the Bills offense in a deal with New England last April, almost capped a dramatic debut. He forced overtime when he threw his first TD pass of the game with 26 seconds remaining -- a 29-yarder to Eric Moulds.'

Marker NY Jets 37, Buffalo 31 (ot) [4:43 PM]
Sportsticker reports: 'Chad Morton stole the spotlight from Drew Bledsoe.'

Marker Van Miller-Bills Radio Voice Enters 36th Season [10:03 AM] reports: Van Miller is in his 36th season as the team's play-by-play radio announcer. The Dunkirk native has broadcast over 700 Bills' games including preseason, regular season and postseason games since 1960.

Marker High Hopes For Moulds In 2002 [10:02 AM] reports: Wide receiver Eric Moulds begins his seventh season with the Bills and his first catching passes from Drew Bledsoe. Moulds has 11 catches for 244 yards and one touchdown in the team's last two home games vs. the Jets. He also has 295 receiving yards on 18 catches (16.4 average) in the last four season openers.

Marker Bledsoe gets down to work for Bills today [9:28 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'How quickly the Bills can get their offensive talent to jell remains a giant question. Will four of their first five drives be derailed by penalties and sacks?'

Marker Extra seasoning [9:27 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I know people are talking about us going to the Super Bowl or the playoffs, but I just want to get back to winning."'

Marker Bills, Jets bring new faces to settle old scores [9:26 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'If today's game is anything close to the two matchups last year, fans would be advised to stick around to the end.'

Marker Finding franchise QB a tall order for most [9:25 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Bledsoe began the trek to greatness several times when he was a Patriot. He could complete that journey in Buffalo.'

Marker No friction, no fooling [5:52 AM]
D and C reports: 'Twenty-six of the 53 men who made the final roster were not with the Bills last year when this once-proud franchise sank to the depths of the NFL with a 3-13 record.'

Marker New Bills paying for old personnel sins [5:51 AM]
D and C reports: '"Remember the Indy game last year? Six TDs on six straight possessions by Peyton Manning. The Jets averaged 25.3 points per game in the preseason so I'd say Vinny has gotten the hang of the West Coast offense. As the Bills try to stop Martin with eight men in the box, Winfield and Clements are going to see a lot of single coverage today against Coles, Chrebet and Moss."'
