QUOTE OF THE DAY
RB Tashard Choice
On earning his spot and establishing his role on the Bills roster:
“You have to work. First thing is always how you work, how you compete in practice and also how you do in games. The guys in the locker room, we have a lot of great guys and a lot of great talent in the locker room. They respect people that come in and work. They know why I am there. They know I will try to get guys to stay on track for what we want to do—which is to win. We want to win, have fun with each other and be cool with all our teammates. That is what I do. I like that. I have good camaraderie with all of my teammates and I am all about football. I am not one of those guys that just likes the lifestyle of doing things. I am all about football and winning. I am coming back just to do that. Just to help the guys out and be the best I can be.” – via The John Murphy Show 3/29/13
