Buffalo Bills News - December 1, 2003

Marker Giants-Bills Quotebook [4:33 AM] reports: '"When you make a big play you make teams suffer a little bit. They started to back off a little bit and you start top catch things underneath and make plays that way. We didn't do that earlier in the season and it showed. We made plays today and kept drives alive today."'

Marker Gregg Williams Quotes [4:32 AM] reports: '"We had an awful lot of contributors today from every area of the team. Defensively we were one play away from being pretty good. We gave up that one play down the middle of the field on the play action. It was a nice play by them. We weren't as sound as we needed to be. Special teams covered very well, did a very good job. We had some guys step up and play in some first start positions. Ross Tucker jumped in there and got his first start, played solid. We had a couple of ticky tack penalties that we need to clean up in the run game. It's always frustrating when you get a holding call in the run game, but for the most part it was a good team win. Obviously we needed one at this time."'

Marker Fassel Press Conference [4:31 AM] reports: 'I just told them, Iíve been doing this a long time; I have been coaching a long time and Iíve never been around a team that will work so hard during the week, pay attention and then go out and play that way. We do not play the game of football very well, we cannot block people, we donít tackle people, we donít cover people, we donít catch the ball in critical situations. I have never seen it and never in my seven years here have we ever played football the way we are playing right now. Honestly, I am at a loss for words.'

Marker Bledsoe pulled in third quarter against Giants [3:49 PM]

Marker Giants facing winter of change [1:46 PM]
Bergen Record reports: 'With so many problems and shortcomings exposed, do the Giants need only a retooling effort before next year, or is management looking at a rebuilding project? Shockey doesn't see wholesale changes.'

Marker Giants vs. Bills [1:45 PM]
Bergen Record reports: 'Give the ball to RB Travis Henry and dare the Giants' linebackers to stop him. If Henry gets going, then QB Drew Bledsoe will have a much easier time finding his favorite target, receiver Eric Moulds. Moulds has been playing through a groin injury this season, but will still be a major test for the Giants' injury-riddled secondary.'

Marker Third-down blues [9:05 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Defenses continue to "squat" their coverage, overplay the shorter zones without fear of getting burned deep.'

Marker A marquee matchup is now a Giant bust [9:04 AM]

Marker Under construction [9:03 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'But the Bills are encouraged by his development and have not backed off their belief that Williams will eventually become a great player. "He's making progress," said Bills coach Gregg Williams. "He's made improvements from his first year to his second year. Only through experience of playing week in and week out will he be able to take his game to the next level.
"Once he gains a better understanding of his opponents in this league he has a chance to be physically dominating every time he steps out there. You can tell there are a few things that surprise him and that's going to happen to a first or second-year player. When he gets through things, the different schemes and players he hasn't faced before, he'll be confident enough to dominate."'

Marker Out clause could put Haslett on Bills' radar [9:02 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Haslett basically has control of personnel decisions in the Saints organization. Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis is a salary cap expert and does not stand in Haslett's way on player moves. Haslett obviously would not have full control of player moves with the Bills. Haslett's family also is happy in the Big Easy. The Saints also have a decent group of young players - Deuce McAllister and Aaron Brooks among them - and could be poised for a strong playoff run next year. Coaches almost never voluntarily leave a spot where they have as much control as "Haz" has in New Orleans. Nevertheless, the Saints' finish this month bears watching. After today's game with the 'Skins, they play Tampa, the Giants, Jacksonville and Dallas.'

Marker Giants assistant McNally: He shapes offensive lines and lives [9:01 AM]

Marker Q&A: Terrence McGee [5:14 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Coach Gregg Williams is fond of saying nobodyís a rookie any more at this point in the season. Is that how you feel?
Yes, very much so. Iíve been here since May. They drafted you for a reason and youíve got to do the job they drafted you for. I feel Iíve been here long enough to know something about the defense and get out there and contribute.'

Marker Williams, Fassel feeling the heat [5:13 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Bills, 8-8 last season, spent lavishly on free agents to take that next step. The Giants returned 20 starters from a 10-6 team that made the playoffs.'

Marker Giants Hoping They Still Have Something Left as Motivation [5:12 AM]
New York Times reports: 'Bills Coach Gregg Williams pushed aside the question of whether his players would continue to play hard under the circumstances. "These are prideful men," Williams said in a conference call this week. "I don't think you would ask the doctor that when he is going into surgery on a tough surgery, either."'

Marker Time to play, not whine [5:11 AM]
New York Daily News reports: 'Yet as bad as all that sounds, there's not a feeling of chaos inside the Giants' locker room - at least not yet. Publicly, the players remain mostly united. They don't expect this season to deteriorate into a finger-pointing mess.'

Marker Giants' will to win [5:10 AM]
New York Post reports: '"It shouldn't be tough to get up," Allen said of today's game against the Bills, a meeting of two 4-7 teams that weren't supposed to be in such dire straights. "I'm in desperate need of a win, no matter what may happen as far as [the] postseason. You still have pride, you still want teams to respect you. Going out there and fighting hard each week is fine and dandy, but at some point we've got to come up victorious at the end of the game."'

Marker Fassel's wife asks fans for support [5:09 AM]

Marker Tiki: It's 'easier' to play out the string [5:08 AM]
New York Post reports: '"It's probably easier," Tiki Barber said. "The way we've been playing, we have nothing to lose. We can go out with a little bit of reckless abandon and not feel any inhibition about making mistakes. We can just play football and hopefully get better as the weeks go on."'

Marker Giants On the Rocks [5:07 AM]
New York Newsday reports: 'The fans, too, are braced for the worst. Their team has not won a home game since the opener Sept. 7. They won't be in a forgiving mood on a blustery day against a bad team on a holiday weekend.'

Marker Giants will be taking a look in the mirror today [5:06 AM]

He has been unable to go deep, as indicated by his 14 catches for 123 yards in four of the past five games. Travis Henry is playing through a cracked bone in his right leg but still rushed 22 times for 77 yards last week. The fourth-quarter defense remains a sore spot, as the Giants have been outscored 71-56 in that quarter.'

Marker Giants, Bills in Pride Bowl [5:02 AM]
Middletown Times Herald Record reports: 'Chances are the winner will be the team that brings the healthiest mind set. After all, these clubs have proven focus problems. Buffalo's minus-11 turnover differential is the worst in the AFC; the Giants' minus-eight is tied for the worst in the NFC.'

Marker Collins looks to get Giantsí offense going [5:01 AM]
