THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
August 2, 1984 — POLIAN JOINS BILLS’ STAFF
Bill Polian was hired as director of pro personnel.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Bills FS Jairus Byrd
On the secondary being very active in the passing lanes through the last two practices:
“I think it is a little bit of both. I think we are getting accustomed to what they are running but I also think that our techniques are looking good, too. It starts with that first. I think we are getting down our techniques. We are gelling together and communicating well. We just have to keep it moving.”
