PITTSBURGH -- Random thoughts before packing up and leaving the Big Ketchup Bottle:
The Bills coaches may have to give Brian Moorman some extra rest this week. He could have sued for overwork Saturday night with seven punts for 356 yards, an impressive 50.9-yard average. Most came with the Bills backed up and Moorman needing to try to flip the field position.
"I guess I could say I thought we punted it well," said Dick Jauron in throwing one of the few positives he could muster from the game.
I like the aggressive nature of the no-huddle. I like the coaches being aggressive. I like the fact it can help simplify things for the QB or make things a tad easier for the O-line. But does anyone feel good about the Bills running the no-huddle exclusively against New England in Week One or New Orleans in Week Three. Do you really want to get in a run-and-gun shootout with Tom Brady and Drew Brees?
Lee Evans was not around in the locker room by the time the media got in Saturday ninght - at least I didn't see him. He was the target of only one pass.
At this point, the Bills might as well let Terrell Owens sit out the Detroit game. But everyone knows they need him.
Said Ryan Fitzpatrick: "Getting Terrell back, I’m sure is going to give us some confidence and help and we’ll come out firing on Monday night."
Third down conversions: Bills 0 for 8. Steelers 10 for 17.
Yards: Bills 135, Steelers 359.
Time of possession: Bills 18:45. Steelers 41:15.
