QUOTE OF THE DAY

Bills C Eric Wood on Bills Head Coach Doug Marrone (via buffalobills.com):
“I was definitely excited when I read that about him. I’m happy he’s an offensive-minded coach. I think that bodes well for us on offense that he coached a really successful offense down in New Orleans. The way he talked he wants to be innovative on offense and that’s kind of how the league is going these days.”
