QUOTE OF THE DAY
Kevin Kolb, Buffalo Bills quarterback
Q: Do you think Friday is an opportunity to prove yourself?
“That’s one of them. It’s obviously a big one. We’ve had a lot of shots. We’ve had shots with OTAs and obviously it picks up and we go from here. I just think, like I’ve told you guys before, you can’t focus on that stuff. You have to focus on as a quarterback, how do I get better and you have to be coachable. That’s a big thing for Nate (Hackett) and our offense. That’s what I’m out here to prove.”
