Buffalo Bills News - October 8, 2003

Marker Redskins-Bills Kickoff Moved to 4:15 p.m. EST [10:35 AM] reports: 'The Oct. 19 game between the Washington Redskins and Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium has been moved to a 4:15 p.m. EST start time.'

Marker Jets confidential [10:25 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'Third-year Bills RB Travis Henry has had some big days against the Jets, who have won three of the past four games against Buffalo.'

Marker Sitting doesn't sit well with Sullivan [8:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"No," Sullivan said, "I'm not happy."'

Marker Tuesdays With Teddy [7:46 AM] reports: 'Travis has been hurt a little bit and Sammy Morris missed some time. I think that has hurt the Bills in their attempts to get the run game untracked. It’s going to hurt your productivity without your top two runners healthy. I watched tape of the Philly game and Travis didn’t play. The Bills passing game suffers when Travis is not in the game.'

Marker Bills Alumni Spotlight: Justin Armour [7:45 AM] reports: 'After spending nearly two years in Mexico, Armour now lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Cara, and their eight-month old son, Joah. He is not unfamiliar with the term ‘pursuing a dream.’ Armour accomplished one by playing in the NFL, albeit briefly, and hopes his venture into skating rolls on a lot longer.'

Marker Jets' Ray of hope [5:20 AM]
New York Daily News reports: 'In other words, there's a better chance of seeing Rush Limbaugh and Donovan McNabb together in a soup commercial than seeing the Jets in the postseason. Still, they can hope.'

Marker Real Catch-22 for Jets [5:19 AM]
New York Post reports: 'You know this is coming, Jets fans. The script is written. The players are in place. The results are forthcoming. Now all there is to do is wait . . . for the NFL Draft.'

Marker Jets Start to Look at Next Year [5:17 AM]
New York Times reports: 'The Jets went to the playoffs for two years with a lineup of mostly older and veteran players. But age has caught up with the Jets, producing a dreadfully slow defense and an offense that lacks a threat. The result is an 0-4 start that underscores the need to give younger players more playing time and heightens the prospect of ripping apart a large segment of the team after the season.'

Marker Switching to plan B [5:02 AM]
White Plains Journal News reports: 'When the Jets host Buffalo on Sunday, their plan is to divert attention from their stalled running game by placing more emphasis on the potentially dangerous Santana Moss in their passing attack.'

Marker McGahee close to returning after passing physical [8:52 PM]
AP reports: '``He's ready to play,'' Uribe said. ``He's worked pretty hard to get back to where he is and the fact that his biology cooperated is pretty amazing. He looks very good.'''

Marker Tops Game Ball Winner: Travis Henry [10:25 AM] reports: 'Playing through the pain of a rib injury that caused him to miss the previous game vs. the Eagles, Henry scored both of Buffalo’s touchdowns, including the game-winning touchdown run in overtime, and finished with 85 rushing yards on 25 carries. The third-year back also had two catches for 14 yards and a 9-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter.'

Marker Reed's slow start is no joke [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'For now, the Bills have not lost faith or patience in Reed. "Josh Reed's a good player and he'll be fine," Bills coach Gregg Williams said Monday. "The big thing is he has to play with confidence. He has to see the confidence in me, see the confidence come from his teammates. I'm very confident in him. He's just got to play with more confidence and everything will iron out. He's been in enough plays in his career at all levels of ball that he'll be fine at this level, too."'

Marker Bills finally ran ball with authority [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Donahoe didn't draft McGahee to sit around and watch. The Bills need to find out if he's close to the player he was at Miami. If he is, they'll have two solid, healthy running backs. Gilbride will really have his hands full then. He'll have one more running back to satisfy, and one more angry person to answer to when he abandons the run.'

Marker Henry shows no ill effects [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Given the seriousness of Henry's injury, the Bills were amazed by his performance. "He was extremely physical," marveled coach Gregg Williams. "His performance energized the people around him in their performances. They got down in the trenches a little dirtier. As far as lower pad level, they came off the ball stronger and harder. It was good to see the inspiration he provided."'

Marker Moulds' status still not clear [5:27 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'It is likely that the Bills will list Moulds as questionable for Sunday’s game in New York against the Jets and then keep his progress a secret so the Jets have to prepare for him.'

Marker Buffalo Bills replay [5:26 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The way the Jets have played on offense, it might not matter how many weeks they’ve had to prepare for the Bills. Curtis Martin is a shell of his former self, New York ranks dead last in rushing, second-to-last in scoring, and Vinny Testaverde has thrown just one touchdown pass.'

Marker What good came out of this? [5:25 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'It would appear that needing a fifth quarter to beat the Bengals, without Corey Dillon, at home, is like a starving man struggling to eat a slice of pizza. But even good teams need to learn how to win. And overcoming adversity for the first time should toughen this Bills team up for more difficult times ahead.'

Marker Ugly win vs. Bengals ‘great W' for Wilson [5:24 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“I never got caught up in that Super Bowl stuff. I really didn’t,” Wilson said. “Before the season, yes, we signed all these players, good players, but you know, you’ve got to play the game and the other team has good players, too. And they hustle, and they get breaks, and this and that. So I never got caught up in that. I never told people, ‘Hey, we’re going to the Super Bowl.’ I said listen, ‘Let’s just play the games first, because you don’t know what’s going to happen.’ In this league, it’s Sunday to Sunday.”'

Marker Lewis would take ball in OT again [5:23 AM]
Cincinnati Enquirer reports: '"We had momentum in the fourth quarter. We had moved the ball," he said. "I felt really comfortable that we were going to win the toss. I told the guys on the sideline that we were going to have to go into the wind, so get ready for that."'

Marker Inside slant [5:22 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'No matter who quarterbacks the Jets, the Bills have to start generating more of a pass rush. Cincinnati's Jon Kitna dropped back to pass 45 times and he was sacked just once. In the second half the Bills began to use more blitzing schemes and that forced Kitna to make quicker decisions.'

Marker Strategy and personnel [5:21 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'Once again the Bills won in spite of their suspect coaching.'

Marker Notes, quotes, anecdotes [5:20 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'FB Sam Gash, who has had almost no role in the offense because the Bills have shunned the running game, was used as a pass receiver against the Bengals. He caught three passes for 32 yards and would have had a fourth if he hadn't dropped it.'

Marker Field goal folly? [5:19 AM]
WGRZ-TV reports: 'But pleeeeeze. Ask his players how many of them think he should have lined up to kick the field goal on 2nd and goal at the 2. Rian Lindell’s hand would be the only one to go up, and I’m not so sure about that.'

October 6, 2003

Marker Marvin Lewis news conference [10:00 PM] reports: 'With 23 seconds left on the clock, you called for quarterback Jon Kitna to kneel to run out the clock. Could you have tried to shoot downfield for a last-second field goal?
“I’m glad someone asked that. We had one time out left. (In the 20 games per year I’ve coached in), I have never seen anybody do that. (If) somebody (were to) move the ball over 40 yards for a field goal with one time out in that situation, I would want to commend them."'

Marker The Day After: Gregg Williams Comments [9:54 PM] reports: '"Eric Moulds is sore. It's really still too early to tell. We've got a couple of days here before we've got to get a status on everything. Sam Adams is sore. Travis (Henry) came out of it pretty good, carrying the ball 25+ times in the ballgame running backs are usually a little bit sore. I didn't notice any residual effect from the ballgame. Just listening and talking to him, no, (Travis) is no worse for the wear."'

Marker Team encouraged to see leader on field [9:50 PM]
ESPN reports: DE John Abraham, arrested last week for drunken driving and sent home to South Carolina by Edwards, was not at practice as the team returned from its bye week. Edwards said he expected Abraham at practice on Tuesday. His status for Sunday's game against Buffalo isn't clear. Asked if Abraham will play Sunday, Edwards replied: "I haven't decided what I'm going to do."

Marker WR Moulds' status uncertain because of groin strain [9:47 PM]
AP reports: '``He's sore but it's really still too early to tell,'' coach Gregg Williams said of his star wide receiver.'

Marker Pennington throws for the first time since injury [9:46 PM]
AP reports: 'Pennington, who had seven pins removed from his left hand and wrist about 10 days is not expected back until the Jets' Nov. 9 game in Oakland at the earliest.'

Marker Bengals coming up just short of wins [9:34 PM]
AP reports: 'They lost in Oakland on a field goal in the closing seconds, and let Buffalo tie it with a field goal in the final minute of regulation Sunday, sending it to overtime. The Bengals got the ball first and Jon Kitna severely underthrew uncovered Kelley Washington on third-and-2, forcing a punt that set up the Bills' winning touchdown. Just like that, another one got away.'

Marker Reed dropping balls a growing concern for Bills [9:33 PM]
AP reports: '''He's just got to play with more confidence and that way everything will iron out,'' said Williams. ''He's made enough plays in his career at all levels of ball that he'll be fine at this level, too.'''
