Urlacher “worried” about Bills

Seeing the Bills barely lose to a pair of division leaders the past two weeks in Baltimore (5-2) and Kansas City (5-2), the Bears are a bit concerned knowing they won’t be playing them in Chicago.

Urlacher told the Arlington Daily Herald he’s concerned about Buffalo’s potential on offense.

“They’re playing better,” Urlacher said. “They’ve got talent. I’m worried about the offense. They move the ball well. They have good running backs. The offensive line plays well together. And the quarterback’s throwing it good. It’s a big challenge for us on the road. We’ll see how good we are.”

Bears DT Tommie Harris sees it much the same way.

“They’re not what their record is,” said Harris of the Bills. “They’re a good team. They’re a dangerous team. They’re not terrible at all. They look good on film. They lose close games in overtime against good teams. You just can’t let them get a victory.”

As the season has worn on each of Buffalo’s opponents has grown more concerned about losing to a winless team. Whatever works.

Chiefs to give Bills the home game?

Posted by Chris Brown on March 26, 2009 – 1:40 pm

It’s a story that may be getting blown out of proportion, but reports out of Kansas City indicate that if construction workers, that are doing major renovations on Arrowhead stadium, go on strike at the end of March when their contract is up, the stadium will not be ready in time to host Chiefs home games and that the possibility would exist that the Chiefs would have to play all of their 2009 regular season games on the road. That according to Fox4KC in Kansas City.

The Bills are one of Kansas City’s scheduled home dates this year, so if the Chiefs are thrust into the worst case scenario they could be coming to Buffalo instead of hosting the Bills.

In this economy I can’t see a labor dispute lasting very long. Nobody wants to be out of work right now, but that would certainly put the NFL’s league offices in a quandary as to the best solution to that problem.

If the worst case scenario did present itself and the Chiefs could not play at Arrowhead, I would think they’d make an arrangement with Kansas State, Kansas University or the University of Missouri to play their home games in one of those college stadiums before going on the road for 16 games.

The Chicago Bears did that back in 2002 when they played their entire home schedule at the University of Illinois in Champaign while their stadium was undergoing renovations.
