QUOTE OF THE DAY
Bills DC Mike Pettine
On defensive line coach Anthony Weaver:
“When I look at Anthony I think he’s mature beyond his years. He’s an outstanding communicator, an outstanding coach and I think he’s smart enough to realize too that he’s going to maintain that professional distance. I think the coach to player relationship here is a little bit different. I think the coach to player relationship is much more of a peer type thing than it is at maybe a college level or high school level where there’s more a position of authority. To me I’ve always felt coaching in the NFL that you’re working with these guys. You’re not talking down to them. You’re giving them information that helps them be successful.”
