McGee’s Spectacular Play Shocks Bengals

We beat the Cincinnati Bengals 37-27 on the road last weekend and showed we have the strength to beat a top rated team. This was our fifth win of the season and Kelly Holcomb passed with great accuracy for 308 yards and the victory. Terrence McGee returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown and became the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week. With under a minute left in the fourth quarter, McGee showed his worth again with a 46-yard interception for a touchdown. He became the first player ever to perform both of those feats in a single game and deserves recognition.

Holcomb, Losman and the Great Moorman

Out of all the players on the Buffalo Bills squad punter Brian Moorman was chosen to go to the Pro Bowl. He is the only Bills player selected and this is his first time to go to the all-star game. Kelly Holcomb will be making his second start in our game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday. Hopefully this will be his best start because the Bengals are a tough team to beat. Losman is still walking with a limp but is probable for the game on Saturday. It appears he has no trouble passing from his performance at practice yet he will not be able to start.

Great Moments but No Win for the Bills

Unfortunately our schedule got pretty impossible four weeks ago and we haven’t pulled out a win since. The Buffalo Bills have had to face the unstoppable Carolina Panthers, the offensive masters of the New England Patriots, and on Saturday we play the Denver Broncos who are said to have the best defense in the league. Individual players did pretty well in the game against the Patriots. Aaron Schobel got his tenth sack for the season in the New England game. However, the few accomplishments of the game included only one touchdown and you can’t win a game against a former Super Bowl champ with one touchdown.

Moulds Knocks Team Leadership

Eric Moulds has been punished for an argument on the sidelines with an assistant coach. They have suspended him without pay and he will not be playing in the game against the New England Patriots on Sunday. He will be back after that and will play the last games of the season. Moulds has been excluded from practice this week as well. The actual disagreement was over Moulds leaving the field due to pain in his Achilles tendon. The trainer asked him to get back on the field and Moulds refused. The trainer says that he never heard Moulds mention he was hurt. ESPN claims when the trainer came to tell Moulds to get back on the field::

“Tyke Tolbert…said that Moulds responded by saying he didn't have to listen to what the head coach said.”
