Booed, embarrassed and besieged, Jim Kelly was well past denial, running smack up against resignation, when he faced a large media contingent Sunday in the bowels of Buffalo's Rich Stadium.What the Buffalo Bills quarterback said shocked reporters more than the intentional grounding penalty he drew on the goal line in the game's final minutes, or the interception he threw shortly after that.What Kelly said was, if he doesn't get the job done, he should be replaced by Todd Collins."I'm man enough to realize if you can't get it done, no matter what the position, it's time to move on to something else," he said.

Is he physical enough to play inside?Offensive line: Ogden was far from alone in his suspect run blocking. No Ravens runners had room to operate out of the backfield. As much as the starters struggled up front -- typical in preseason openers -- the second unit was worse in the second half.
