QUOTE OF THE DAY
FRED JACKSON, Buffalo Bills running back
Q: Can you talk about the relationships that have been formed between the players and coaching staff?
A: “That’s one of the things Coach (Marrone) stressed to us: this is a game that we have to come in here and yes, work, but the number one thing that we should do is have fun while we’re out here. He’s been a living example of that.”
