It’s a pretty simple approach. Bills WR Stevie Johnson‘s approach to his NFL career can be summed up in four words that have become his unofficial mantra.
“Handle business-have fun.”
Stevie refers to it as “HB-HF” and the training camp crowds in Pittsford can often be heard shouting it out to the Bills veteran wideout during practice.
Johnson appeared on The John Murphy Show Wednesday night, and he elaborated what his “Handle business-Have fun” approach is all about. He’s happy fans are embracing his approach.
“That’s a good thing. I’m happy the word has pretty much spread throughout the locker room,” Johnson said. “I’m just trying to instill it with my receiving corps, handle biz and have fun. These coaches we have, they actually had a meeting about have more fun, have more fun on the field. In the game, make sure you take care of business first, then have fun.”
Host John Murphy asked Stevie if it’s possible, in the high stakes, high pressure world of the NFL, to take care of business and still have fun.
“You can. It’s about winning games,” he answered.
“At this point, in my career with the Buffalo Bills, everybody knows that I have fun, I enjoy playing these games, I love it. But now it has to transition over, so that we have to win. We have to win more. We have to win more than six. It’s playoff time now. That’s when you will really see the fun in me and the guys around me.”
