THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
July 29, 1960 — BUFFALO WELCOMES THE BILLS WITH LARGE PARADE
Main Street in Buffalo was lined with 10,000 fans, as they welcomed the new Buffalo Bills to town.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
STEVIE JOHNSON, WIDE RECEIVER
Q: It seemed that everyone was pretty hyped up. Did it seem that way to you?
A: Yeah, that’s the intensity that the coaches bring out here. They brought that here. They challenged us and we’ve just been challenging the DBs and it’s fun. You got to make it fun and compete with each other. We’re out there talking trash and getting stuff going because it is pretty much us against the world and that’s how we feel right now. So we go out there and compete with each other and then take on the world when the season starts.
