QUOTE FOR THE DAY
Bills offensive line coach Joe D’Alessandris on rookie offensive lineman Chris Hairston (from Chris Brown’s story on BuffaloBills.com – 6/13)– “He has some very good skills. He’s a big man. He’s got good feet and now coming in to learn the system, once he can learn the terminology he gives himself a chance to play.”

NOTES AND NUMBERS
Uniform Fact of the Day
The 1973 season saw a significant change to the Bills uniform when the team switched to blue pants with its white jerseys.  The blue pants had a white-red-white stripe down each side and also had a blue belt.  That season also saw another big change as it was the team’s first year at its new stadium in Orchard Park.
