QUOTE OF THE DAY
LB Bryan Scott
Q: Tell me why Buffalo is so important to you? A place you have been, you are going into your seventh year (here), but a place where it has been a little bit tough as far as no playoff appearance and a couple of coaching changes in your seven year tenure here.
“It has been very tough, but I just love the city of Buffalo. I love the fans. I love the organization. I think we are so close to turning that corner. It would have hurt me deeply if I did not go back to Buffalo and then they start winning games and make it back to the playoffs. I want to be a part of the team that does that.” – From The John Murphy Show on March 6th
