Marker 'Germanator' Tackles American Football [12:49 PM]

"Of course it would be great if I could sack one of the big quarterbacks like Donovan McNabb or Peyton Manning," Ritzmann said. "And I'm sure that's going to happen in the future."'

Marker Bills Kickoff Weekend Memories [12:37 PM] reports: '"As a fan, the 1980 season opener when they beat the Dolphins and ended the streak of the 1970s stands out.

Marker Kelsay, Denney Content with Sharing Time [12:37 PM] reports: '"Chris Kelsay and Ryan Denney have been doing a great job," defensive coordinator Jerry Gray said. "They're real good friends but they know they need to compete against one another at a very high level. It's not like one is a good run stopper and one is a good pass rusher, it's not that at all.

Marker Bills Open Season Against Jacksonville [3:38 PM] reports: '"Last year was one of the hardest ones for me to shake during the off-season," Bledsoe said. "I can't claim that I've done any more work or worked any harder this year than I have in years past, but during the off-season I spent a lot more time thinking about football because I was so frustrated by what happened last year. I do have a sense that this year is an opportunity for us."'

Marker Usually calm Mularkey fired up for opener [1:25 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'I know hes pretty fired up, said quarterback Drew Bledsoe. He was pretty fired up for the first pre-season game, too, but this is for real. (Still) I expect him to be the way hes been all along on game day. Hes very calm and right in the moment all the time.'

Marker Backers of Southwest Florida Gear Up [1:24 PM] reports: '"Our group meets on one side and the Patriots fans have their area on the other side," said Shirley Trippany, secretary/treasurer for the group. "And they complain and say we make too much noise," she said.'

Niagara Falls Reporter reports: The key for Buffalo, as it figures to be most of the season, is to keep the Jaguars from launching a full-scale assault on the statuesque (and thats not meant in the glamorous way its usually used) Drew Bledsoe by running early, often and then some more.

Marker Bills tighten their grip on pass rush [9:10 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I'm going to put pressure on myself because that's what motivates me," Schobel said. "There's always something to play for. You play hard for your teammates. I don't like looking bad on film. When everybody watches it together, I don't want to be the weak link."'

Marker Kelsay and Reed named starters [9:10 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Josh just looks a lot more comfortable," quarterback Drew Bledsoe said. "When he's on the field, he's ready to go play.

Marker Confidence in Donahoe is fading [9:09 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Coaching isn't the real problem, though. It's the personnel. Donahoe has brought in a lot of names, but he doesn't have a playoff roster. Like the man who put it together, this Bills team is less than what it seems, a team that will struggle to be average.'

Marker In order to fly first class, Bills look to coach [9:09 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The defense is solid and could be aided by better ball control. It remains to be seen how the same defensive cast will create more turnovers. Good luck (in the form of health along the lines) is essential. Get ready for a lot of tight games. The Bills will need numerous fourth-quarter wins to make the playoffs. Look for a 9-7 finish but no wild card.'
