Marker Special effect [5:55 AM]
Boston Herald reports: 'After a 1998 season in which he silenced many of his critics with gutsy play and a pair of comeback wins, Bledsoe came out flying in 1999. When the Pats hit their bye date after Week 8, Bledsoe had the stats (13 touchdowns, four interceptions) and the swagger of a Pro Bowl quarterback. Since then, he's won four games.'

Marker Milloy cuts Flutie-mania down to size [5:54 AM]
Boston Herald reports: '"He shouldn't be a crowd favorite at our stadium," said Milloy. "If I have a chance, I'm going to drag his ass into the ground."'

Marker Are Bills trying to buffalo Belichick on QB issue? [5:51 AM]
Providence Journal reports: 'In a move that probably was designed to give Bill Belichick pause, Wade Phillips told reporters yesterday that he hadn't decided whether Doug Flutie or Rob Johnson would be starting at quarterback when the 4-4 Buffalo Bills face the 2-6 Pats Sunday at Foxboro Stadium.'

Marker Not Business As Usual [5:50 AM]
Hartford Courant reports: 'As Belichick retools the Patriots, the middle of the offensive line - guards and centers - seems to have stabilized. Belichick cut 1999 fifth-round pick Ed Ellis at the start of training camp when it became obvious to him that Ellis had size but a lousy work ethic. After praising the talent of 6-6, 350-pound second-year pro Derrick Fletcher during training camp, Belichick started him in the opener and cut him two weeks later. He cut third-year backup center Jason Andersen two weeks ago.'

Shout! reports: 'If Doug Flutie ends up being the Lou Gehrig of football, Rob Johnson may never play for the Buffalo Bills again. Johnson is questionable against the Patriots, but even if he were 1000 percent he most likely wouldn't start. Wade Phillips wouldn't say one way or the other.'

Boston Globe reports: 'Though the Bills have yet to name their starting quarterback for Sunday - Rob Johnson or Doug Flutie - Patriots coach Bill Belichick is preparing for Flutie. "I expect it to be Doug," said Belichick. "You can't rule it out. Last year Rob started the playoff game, and if he's healthy, I suppose we could see him. I expect to see Doug because he's playing well and the team plays well with him in there."'

Marker Belichick knows Flutie's act well [6:20 AM]

Providence Journal reports: 'Safety Larry Whigham wants to be counted as one of Doug Flutie's biggest fans.
