Henry Shops His Services
Bills Finish 8th In Attendance: The Bills filled 97% of the seats over the entire season at Ralph Wilson Stadium this season. That was good for an average game attendance of 71,800 people per game which was eighth best in the league. The Bills sold out seven of eight games this year and have sold out 15 of their last 16 home games. They have ranked in the top 10 13 times in the last 15 seasons. It helps that The Ralph is the seventh largest stadium in the league. The only game not to sellout this year was the Halloween battle with the Cardinals.

Miami Looks To Trade For Henry? It would appear that Miami is at the top of Travis Henry's wish list. He is from South Florida and the Dolphins desperately need a running back. A source said that the Dolphins are already trying to broker a trade with the Bills. An article in the Miami Herald also suggests that Oakland and possibly Cincinnati and Seattle would be interested in Henry's service. His agent said several teams have shown interest. Of course it doesn't matter if Henry wants to play in Miami or if Miami wants him, it is highly unlikely the Bills would trade him within the division and give him two cracks at revenge each year. He would likely command a 2nd round draft pick, something Miami doesn't even have. What would you do if you were Tom Donahoe? Answer our poll question on the homepage.

McGahee Honored: Willis McGahee has been honored by Pro Football Weekly as their comeback player of the year winner. Drew Brees won the same award that the league hands out last week. McGahee missed his entire rookie season recovering from his knee injury. He ran for over 1,100 yards while starting only 11 games this year.

Henry To Shop Around: The Bills have given Travis Henry and his agent permission to shop around to see who wants Henry's services. That team would then need to make a deal with the Bills who will not give him away. Last week as we reported Tom Donahoe said that Henry could be back. The agent told AP that he has talked to several interested teams since he was given permission by Donahoe. The Bills have confirmed that permission was granted paving the way for the eventual departure of Henry from Buffalo.

Gray Very Likely To Stay: Jerry Gray is very likely to stay put in Buffalo at this point. Syracuse University officially gave their head coaching job to Greg Robinson and it doesn't appear that Gray is on the short list for either of the NFL head coaching job openings in San Francisco or Cleveland. We reported on Sunday, that he was listed as a possible candidate in San Francisco but has yet to be called for an interview. These seem to be the only two jobs that it is possible for Gray to leave the Bills for. He told AP last week he is very happy in Buffalo but is of course interested in being a head coach.

Wilson Doesn't Make Cut: The Pro Football Hall of Fame has pared down their list of finalists to 15 and Ralph Wilson did not make the cut and won't be going into the hall of fame again this year. George Young was the only one in the contributor category to advance to the finalist list. The class of 2005 will be announced Super Bowl week.
McGahee, Moulds Get Gamball Honors: Willis McGahee was the recipient of the most gameballs "handed out" by Bills Daily this year. He got a gameball in seven games and shared the honor with Eric Moulds. McGahee's accomplishment is more astonishing since he only started 12 games. Gameball Tallies.
McGee, Bledsoe Share Dishonor: Terrence McGee and Drew Bledsoe shared the dishonor of getting goats the most. Both players received five goats. It is the third year in the row that Bledsoe led in that category. He also received gameballs four times. This adds to the adage that the QB gets too much of the credit and too much of the blame. Goat Tallies.
Gray Not Going To Syracuse? A report out of a Dallas newspaper says that Texans Co-Defensive Coordinator Greg Robinson will be named the new head football coach at Syracuse University. If the report is true Jerry Gray will not be leaving for that job. He was scheduled to meet with Syracuse officials this week. The Bills will have dodged a bullet in this case but they are not out of the woods yet. Right now there are two head coaching job openings in the pros, Cleveland and San Francisco. Gray doesn't appear to be a candidate in Cleveland right now but he is one for the San Francisco job. There are no more major college coaching job openings.

Players Of The Week: Bills Daily begins its look back at our game analysis of each game this year. We take a look at our player of the week winners and see an interesting trend. 7 winners were on offense, 7 on defense, and 2 on special teams. Showing consistency. The only players to win the award twice was Drew Bledsoe and Willis McGahee. The real interesting fact is our player of the year, Takeo Spikes did not win one weekly award. It shows his consistency was the key to his great season. As the week progresses we will give the final tally of our gameballs and goats also, so watch back for that. Top Players.
