Bills Offensive Woes Hit New Low

Houston Celebrates - AP Photo Owner Calls For Personnel Upgrade: Ralph Wilson was visbly upset after the loss as he called for an upgrade in personnel offensively. He called the season disapointing and said today's loss was pinned on personnel not coaching. He knows they will have to wait until after the season to upgrade the offense. He mentioned a couple of missed tackles that he doesn't see on other teams as a problem also. He went on to say that it isn't the entire offense, just certain positions that need to be upgraded.

Offense Pathetic Again: When you go three straight games without scoring a touchdown it makes you know that the offense is just plain pathetic. This week's gameday grades will mirror last week's as the offense did nothing and the defense kept them in the game to no avail. Gameday Grades.

Henry Cracks Fibula: Travis Henry cracked his fibula in the loss against Houston. He did play the entire second half with the injury and it is unknown at this time if he will be able to continue playing with the injury. Izell Reese was the only other Bill hurt in this game, he was shaken up on two occassions in the fourth quarter and has a concussion. Injury Page.

Bills Lose Again: A Drew Bledsoe fumble inside of the two minute warning allowed the Texans to hold on to beat the Bills 12-10 at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The Bills have now gone three straight games without a touchdown in a disgusting display. Seven of the ten points were given to them by the defense. A Jeff Posey sack was a safety and an >Antoine Winfield interception led to a field goal. A second safety was given to the defense on the last play of the game by Houston. The offense wasn't helped by two missed field goals by Rian Lindell. Complete Review.

Williams In Accident: Mike Williams missed today's game with Houston after getting into a car accident this morning. He suffered minor injuries as his truck rolled over on his way to the stadium. He was the only one involved in the accident and was treated at an area hospital before going to the stadium. Team doctors checked him out. He was at the stadium during the game and appears to be OK.

Moulds Inactive: Eric Moulds has been named inactive for today's game. His injured groin is bothering him too much to play. Injury Page.

Gameday Weather: It will be downright balmy in Western New York terms, but it will be chilly for the visitors from the South. Morning Showers should be over by kickoff but the skies will remain cloudy with a gametime temperature of 49°. The winds will be unusually calm at about 6mph.


Saturday November 15, 2003

Moulds Now Gametime Decision: Coach Williams said that the downgraded of Eric Moulds to questionable makes him a game time decision for Sunday's contest against Houston. He has not practiced all week and the adding to the injury report leads to speculation that he aggravated his groin injury. On the positive side, Jonas Jennings practiced again on Friday and appears like he will play on Sunday. Injury Page.


Friday November 14, 2003

Wilson Donates Tickets: Ralph Wilson once again showed why he is one of the classiest honors in the league by buying and donating 4,000 tickets to this Sunday's game to local military personnel who served in Iraq. He also donated tickets to local police, firefighters, and EMT personnel.

Moulds Downgraded: The Bills have added Eric Moulds t the injury report. His groin has been bothering him and he has not practiced all week. He is now listed as questionable on the injury report.

Haggan Added: LB Mario Haggan has been activated off of the practice squad to take the roster spot of Ron Edwards. Haggan was a seventh round draft pick in this year's draft, Edwards was placed on injured reserve on Wednesday. Front Office.

Game Sold Out: Sunday's game is sold out and the blackout has been lifted. There were some single seats available yesterday morning and a few tickets were returned by the Texans. Those tickets remain available although the game is officially a sell out before the 1pm deadline to allow the game to be televised on local TV. All five home games have been sold out and the blackout has been lifted for all of them.

Moulds Doesn't Practice: For the second day in a row yesterday, Eric Moulds was held out of practice to rest his ailing groin. He is not on the injury report and is expected to play on Sunday. Jonas Jennings did practice for a second straight day yesterday. He is listed as questionable but hopes to play. Injury Report.

Power Outage: In a cruel twist of irony, their was a power failure at the stadium yesterday during the snow and wind storm. It almost force the Bills to move practice outdoors in the bad weather but they brought in a high powered generator and were able to practice in the field house. Maybe the generator can jump start the offense?


Thursday November 13, 2003

Texans Injury Report Lengthy: While the Bills listed just two players on the injury report, the Texans have eight players on the report. Two are out, one doubtful, two are questionable, and three are probable. The biggest injury is to DE Gary Walker who is out with a foot injury. Injury Report.

Practice Squad Move: The Bills re-added Ken Simonton to the practice squad and make room for him by releasing WR Jerel Myers. The team still has a spot open on the active roster with Ron Edwards going on injured reserve. Front Office.

Wilson, Tasker Make Cut: The hall of fame announced their semi-finalist list for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2004. On the list of 25 names are two Bills. Owner Ralph Wilson and special teams specialist Steve Tasker. They join fellow potential nominees that include John Elway, Jim Marshall, Art Modell, and Lester Hayes. The original list of 67 names was cut down to the 25 semi finalists. In mid-January the list will be pared to 15 finalists.

The Future: Many fans have started to look at the 2004 version of the Bills as the playoffs may just be a pipedream at this point. Bills Daily feature reporter Joe Chenelly looks at an outline of the 2004 Buffalo Bills. Complete Story.

Edwards To Go On IR: The Bills will place Ron Edwards on injured reserve. As we reported earlier today, he will have surgery on his rotator cuff injury. He will miss the rest of the season. The team hasn't decided yet who will replace him on the active roster. Injury Report.

Williams Says Club Is In Mix: Gregg Williams addressed the media during his usual media day press conference today. He talked about the defensive line rotation and said that they will move people around to continue and replace Ron Edwards. Williams said that the team is still in the mix and that they are back at home will help. He said they need to fix the areas of the team that aren't performing well. He said they need to get a few big plays to get defenses to loosen up and then the points will come. He feels the Texans have a good offensive attack with their two rookies, Davis Johnson. He thinks they will try to pressure the Bills defensively since that is there makeup. He called them a strong and improved defense and special teams from the team they played last year. On offense they will emphasis the quick game and the running game.

Edwards To Have Surgery: Ron Edwards and Jonas Jennings are the only two players listed on the injury report for a second straight week for the Bills. Edwards is now listed as out and is having rotator cuff surgery to clean it out. Jennings is once again questionable with his hip flexor. He is expected to try and practice this week. Injury Report.

Texans Will Be Tough: The Bills should be able to put it all together this week on offense as the Texans are near the bottom of league in all defensive categories. Like everything else lately, it may not be that easy, the Texans have played everyone tough and it looks like another tough battle. Game Preview.

Moulds Still Hurting: On Monday, Eric Moulds admitted that he is still hampered by his groin injury. He said he's at about 80% and the injury is preventing him from going deep. He thinks he will have to play through it the rest of the year. In other injury news, Pat Williams is fine after missing a few plays against Dallas. Ruben Brown also missed a few plays against Dallas with an elbow injury but did finish the game. Trey Teague bruised his shoulder in the game but should be fine. Injury Page.


Monday November 10, 2003

Inactive Changes: The Bills had some different names on the gameday inactive list. Willis McGahee was inactive as expected in his first game after being taken off the non football injury list. Marques Sullivan was activated for the first time this year replacing the injured Jonas Jennings but did not see any action. Clarence Coleman was inactive for the first time all year as the Bills went with Sam Aiken in his place. Terrence McGee got the nod over inactive Danion Sidney. McGee has been active in recent weeks for his special teams play. He was a dynamo yesterday and made two big plays in the nickel and dime defenses which earned him our player of the week honors.
