QUOTE OF THE DAY
NATHANIEL HACKETT, Bills Offensive Coordinator, on using a unified thought process for the offense:
“We want everybody to be together just like the flow of a basketball game. You want everybody to know where everybody is going to be all the time. It’s a little different in basketball, but we’re trying to bring the same principle to football. Everybody needs to know what their role is on this play and why the play was called. That’s hard sometimes to get that information out because everybody goes their separate ways and works on their individual techniques. So this is something we’ve tried to create that unifies everyone… It’s done some nice things for us and the more you keep everyone on the same page the better your execution.” via BuffaloBills.com (6/18)
