Panthers Game Has Tix Left: The only home game that has any tickets left is the Panthers game on November 27th. There are 3,500 tickets for that game. The other three home games against Kansas City, Denver, and New England have only single seats left and are virtually guaranteed to be soldout.
Thomas To Go On IR: Tom Donahoe said today that the Bills will likely move Kevin Thomas from the PUP list to the injured reserve list ending any chance of him playing this season. Thomas has had nothing but setbacks from off season knee surgery and had a clean up procedure last month. The other PUP player, Kevin Everett may be cleared to practice within the next two weeks. He had a clean up procedure last month that has helped his recovery. If he begins practicing the team has until the end of the month to activate him or IR him. Donahoe also said he hopes that Takeo Spikes will be ready by training camp next year. Injury Page
Players Want Holcomb: To a man the players want to see the Bills stick with Kelly Holcomb at quarterback since he gives them the best chance to win. Coach Mularkey basically admitted that yesterday without committing to the veteran. He is in a tough situation, if he goes to J.P. Losman he runs the risk of losing the veterans and having the season go even more south quickly. If he doesn't go to him, his development will be stunted for next season.
Re-evaluation Begins: Mike Mularkey addressed the media yesterday as the team returned to the practice field for a couple of practices this week. He said they will re-evaluate everything including the QB position. He said Kelly Holcomb has done what they have asked him to do and he's done well enough to help them win. They will do what gives them the best chance to win. He said he feels J.P. Losman is still developing despite not playing. He said everyone that finished the last game is still starters at this point but they are right in the middle of the evaluation process and it will continue. The coach said Sam Adams has a very good mind frame despite getting benched last week. He said he hopes he responds like he did last year after being benched. He went on to have a pro bowl season. The coach feels they can play with anybody, anywhere, anytime and they proved that in the loss to the Patriots. It was evidence that they can do good things and the guys realize that it will be back and forth all year in their division.
