Losman Struggles: J.P. Losman spoke with the media following the end of the second week of organized team activities. He felt the practices before today were much, much better but they got a lot of things accomplished anyway. He said he analyzes the bad days more than the good ones. They were plays that they weren't too familiar with and he feels it will be fine when he runs through them again. He also feels practicing against his defense will benefit the offense since they are so good. He will be at the uniform unveiling tomorrow, he calls it an honor to be on the field celebrating the tradition of the teams that are being honored. He is in the process of critiquing himself as this time. He can't really evaluate other players since he's concentrating on his own play.
Mularkey Sees Team On A Mission: Coach Mularkey spoke to the media at the end of the second week of organized team activities. He said he's very happy with the response that they have had to the OTAs, what has helped is the schedule. It was designed to let the players spend three days a week with their families. He feels it is evident that the team is on a mission and it may be a result of the bad taste the season ending loss to the Steelers left in their mouths. He said the defense is still stressing turnovers and getting off the field on third downs. Mularkey knows that the offense will get blitzed a lot with a young quarterback. He feels the defense blitzing him a lot in workouts will benefit both sides of the ball. The team takes 10 minutes each day to emphasize one game situation. Today they concentrated on third down blitzing, yesterday was the red zone. Next week they will work on the two minute drill.
Bills To Look At DT: Former Redskin defensive tackle Jermaine Haley is expected in Buffalo to tryout with the team during the organized team activities. Haley played for Washington last year and is forgoing a trip to Canada where he was scheduled to join the BC Lions' training camp.
