Bills Get First Win Of Season

AP Photo - High Grades: The Bills got their first win of the season and deserved very good grades for the first time this year. The defense really shutdown the Jets offense and made big plays. Trent Edwards had the offense moving which was nice to see as the offense opened up the gameplan. Gameday Grades.

QB Controversy? Dick Jauron did nothing to douse the fire of a QB controversy in his post game press conference after today's win. He said he never says a starter can't lose their job and it is too early to say whether or not J.P. Losman automatically gets handed in the starting job when he returns from his injury. What do you think? Take our poll on our homepage to let us know!

Bills Win 17-14: Trent Edwards hit Michael Gaines for a fourth quarter touchdown and the Bills held on with a Terrence McGee interception for a 17-14 win over the Jets. Edwards had a great game as he had the time to throw and completed 22 of 28 passes for 234 yards and a touchdown pass to Michael Gaines. Marshawn Lynch scored the other touchdown for the Bills in the win as he ran for 79 yards in the game. Check back in a little bit for our complete review. Game Review.

Harrison, Youboty Hurt: Another game, more injuries to the defense. The Bills lost two players on that side of the ball in the 1st quarter. They lost Kevin Harrison on the first play when he injured his knee on the opening kickoff. He did not return and was ruled out of the game early on. Ashton Youboty sprained his ankle late in the first quarter and was taken into the locker room for a look. He was walking on the sidelines in the 2nd half and only could have returned in an extreme emergency Coach Jauron said. Jim Leonhard got hurt late in the game and hobbled off under his own power with a calf injury. Injury Page.

Nice Weather: It will be a beautiful early fall day in Orchard Park for today's game against the Jets. It will be mostly sunny and warm with a gametime temperature climbing into the low 70s with only a 10% chance of any precipitation. Winds will be out of the south at 9mph.


Saturday September 29, 2007

Another Practice Squad Move: The Bills made another practice squad move late this week swapping back defensive backs. S Jon Corto was put back on the squad and CB Dustin Fox was released. Now that Terrence McGee his healthy they or ok at that position.


Friday September 28, 2007

Losman Officially Out: It came as no surprise when the Friday injury report came out J.P. Losman has been ruled out for the game. Sam Aiken and Terrence McGee are officially listed as probable but both practiced fully all week, including today, and will be full go for the game. Injury Page.

Fine Comes Down: The NFL has fined Patriots DT Vince Wilfork $12,500 for his elbow to the knee hit on J.P. Losman on Sunday. Losman told the team's official website that he doesn't think the fine was enough if he did it deliberately. Wilfork said that it wasn't deliberate and that he's not a dirty player. He reportedly tried to apologize to Losman who said it isn't needed and the damage is already done. In other fine news, Derrick Dockery was fined $5,000 for not buckling his chin strap in last week's game.


Thursday September 27, 2007

McGee, Aiken Practice Again: It appears the Bills will have two injured players back on Sunday. Terrence McGee and Sam Aiken both practiced for a second straight day on Thursday and should play Sunday. Injury Page.

Everett's Locker Given Away: A week after Dick Jauron said it was important to keep Kevin Everett's locker in tact, it is now gone. The team has a big space crunch in the locker room because of the influx of a lot of new players and players who are on injured reserve but still in Buffalo getting treatment. The locker room has 67 stalls and 70 players including injured players and practice squad players. The move was made out of necessity, not out of disrespect for their fallen teammate. Anthony Thomas has been packing up Everett's house and asked to pack up the locker as well. He has been sending Everett's stuff back to Houston for him. Brad Butler is now occupying Everett's old locker.


Wednesday September 26, 2007

Another Practice Squad Move: The Bills made a second practice squad move on a very busy Wednesday. They have added DE Orien Harris to the squad and released OL Nevin McCaskill. This move is a bit puzzling since the team has just seven healthy offensive linemen on the team and will be getting Anthony Hargrove back next week to help the defensive end situation. Harris spent the final three weeks of last season on the Browns and played some special teams.

Losman Improving: Dick Jauron said the team is now very optimistic about the recovery of J.P. Losman from his grade one knee sprain and J.P. is very happy as well. The swelling has gone down and he feels better and has more movement and is walking with a limp that isn't too noticeable. The coach feels it will take some time before they really know how long he'll be out but it is heading in the right direction. They now call it a 1-2 week thing instead of a 2-3 week thing. Injury Page.

Edwards Feeling A Lot Of Emotions: Trent Edwards told the media today that he's anxious, nervous, excited and still frustrated from last week's game. He's looking to take what he's learned and apply it on the field this week. The biggest difference for him was taking all of the reps in practice as it took a lot out of him physically today and he needs to get used to it. He needs to change a lot of little things that he noticed in film study to get a win under their belt. Edwards was the sixth QB drafted this year but the first one to get a chance to start a game.

Joe May Start: Dick Jauron held his usual Wednesday media day press conference. They are optimistic they will be healthy at cornerback and some of the new guys like Jerametrius Butler will have to compete to be active on Sunday. Jauron said it is possible that Craig Nall will stick around even when Losman is healthy since he fits with the team but it's too early to do that. Leon Joe is expected to start although Jauron stopped short in committing to that saying that Joe will play along with Mario Haggan on the outside. Joe hasn't been with the team long but he does have familiarity with the system. On Trent Edwards he hopes he will perform and believes he will perform well over time but he's awfully young right now and there really isn't a lot of practice time over the week to get him better prepared. He had a good practice today and they will get a feel with what he's comfortable with as the week progresses.

McGee, Aiken Practice: The Bills only listed J.P. Losman as not practicing today meaning that Terrence McGee and Sam Aiken should be back in action this week after practicing fully today. In other injury news, Chris Brown on the Bills website reports that Keith Ellison is now jogging with an air cast on as he gets closer to returning from his high ankle sprain. Injury Report.

Harrison Re-Signed: The team did more roster shuffling today by bringing back LB Kevin Harrison and placing Jason Whittle on injured reserve ending his season. Harrison was on the team's practice squad most of last year and was cut late this summer. He obviously knows the system. Whittle does have a torn hamstring and is the 2nd player to be placed on injured reserve in two days and the fifth since the season started. Depth Chart.

Practice Squad Moves: The Bills also swapped players on the practice squad. They released Kevin Eakin and signed Gibran Hamdan. He was the co-MVP of NFL Europe in 2006 and has bounced around NFL practice squads in Philadephia, Seattle, and San Francisco. He also made a regular season appearance for Washington and was most recently in the Miami training camp.

Bills Return Home: The Bills limp home after two blowout losses on the road. They will lick their wounds and try to get up for their first of three straight home games over the next month. The Jets aren't as formidable as their first three opponents but they are better than the Bills making their first win less than probable. Complete Preview.


Tuesday September 25, 2007

Another Roster Move: The Bills made another roster move today adding a cornerback. Jerametrius Butler is the newest Bill. To make room the team released RB Josh Scobey. Butler was a fifth round draft pick in 2001 by the Rams. He was most recently with the Redskins this summer but was released before the season started. He made 31 starts with 9 interceptions from 2003 to 2004 under Rams secondary coach and current Bills defensive coordinator Perry Fewell. The defense the Bills run is similiar and he should be able to pick it up quickly. Knee and hamstring injuries made the last two years lost for him. The Bills couldn't afford the luxury of keeping a sixth running back anymore in Scobey with all the injuries. With Terrence McGee banged up the team needed to add a corner or risk playing with just three again this week. They are still short at linebacker but may make due with what they have. Depth Chart.

Bills Dead Last: Statistically this may be the worst 0-3 team in NFL history. Through the first three weeks the Bills rank dead last in five of the six major yardage categories. They are last in total offense, passing offense, total defense, passing defense, and rushing defense. The only area they are above water is rushing offense where they ranked an almost respectible 18th. They are also dead last in points scored.

Laughing At The Bills Situation: You couldn't imagine how the season would have started off this bad for the Bills. At this point, all you can do is inject a little humor into this lost season that is still in September. Leave it to Tony Bogyo to have some fun with this pathetic mess. Let's hope he can play linebacker is good as he writes! Complete Story.


Monday September 24, 2007

Nall Back: Another Monday, and as usual the Bills are looking to fill holes on the roster created by injuries. In an anticipated move they brought back Craig Nall to backup Trent Edwards. Nall has NFL experience and knows the system, he also had a decent preseason when given the chance to play. He left under bad circumstances as he was unhappy with the way the team treated him. The fact that he was still on the open market, living in Buffalo, and knew the system probably persuaded him to come back to Buffalo. Dick Jauron confirmed Nall wasn't happy how things turned out but left on good terms. His agent said he didn't hold a grudge and is happy to be returning to the Bills. He had workouts with Houston and Atlanta. Nall signed a one year deal today and they made room for him by placing Paul Posluszny on injured reserve. Depth Chart.

QB Wanted: The Bills will now have to add at least one quarterback to the roster as their incredible string of injuries continue. With J.P. Losman out at least two weeks, Trent Edwards is the lone quarterback on the roster. This is one of the downfalls of going with two quarterbacks. They have several options including activating Kevin Eakin from the practice squad. Eakin was with the team all summer but has no NFL experience. The team really needs a veteran presence behind the rookie. Another option is bringing Craig Nall back. He has not found a team since the Bills released him and he knows the offense. The team may also just go out and get the best veteran out there.
