BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Kevin Everett voluntarily moved his arms and legs Tuesday when partially awakened, prompting a neurosurgeon to say the Buffalo Bills tight end would walk again -- contrary to the grim prognosis given a day before. "Based on our experience, the fact that he's moving so well, so early after such a catastrophic injury means he will walk again," said Dr. Barth Green, chairman of the department of neurological surgery at the University of Miami school of medicine.

Two NFL coaching vacancies were filled on Wednesday, when the Chicago Bears hired St. Louis Ram defensive coordinator Lovie Smith and the Buffalo Bills hired Pittsburgh Steeler offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey. Smith agreed to a four-year deal. He replaces Dick Jauron, fired Dec. 29. Smith will be introduced at a news conference today. He was in St. Louis on Wednesday and unavailable for comment. The Rams had one of the NFL's worst defenses when Smith arrived, allowing 471 points in 2000.

Just a simple piece of advice. That's what Jim Kelly had for Drew Bledsoe when Bledsoe arrived in April, replacing Rob Johnson as quarterback of the Buffalo Bills. Seeing as how Kelly is not only a Hall of Fame quarterback but is permanently entrenched as the city's golden boy, Bledsoe would have been a fool to ignore these three simple words: Location, location, location. Not location of Bledsoe's throws, mind you; he's one of the game's most accurate passers.

Cornerback Phillip Buchanon wasn't going to miss the same pass twice. Moments after allowing a pass by Drew Bledsoe to slip through his hands, Buchanon intercepted the next one and ran it back 81 yards for a touchdown, sparking the Oakland Raiders to a 49-31 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Oakland (4-0) is the NFL's only unbeaten team, following San Diego's 26-9 loss to Denver. The Raiders matched the best start in franchise history, last going 4-0 in 1990. They have Buchanon to thank.

The resurgent New England Patriots are getting picky. Simply winning doesn't thrill them anymore. The Patriots beat the Buffalo Bills, 21-11, Sunday, moving above .500 for the first time in two seasons under Coach Bill Belichick and matching last year's victory total. But they didn't play that well. "Last year these would be types of games we'd lose," quarterback Tom Brady said. "You'd always like to play great every week, but that's not always the case in this league, as I'm finding out."

Two of the NFL's longest-running sagas came to a close Wednesday when quarterback Ryan Leaf was waived by the San Diego Chargers and the Buffalo Bills ended their divisive quarterback controversy by picking Rob Johnson over Doug Flutie, who was released. Leaf became one of the more notorious busts in NFL draft history after being selected second overall behind Peyton Manning in 1998.
