QUOTE OF THE DAY
RUSS BRANDON, Buffalo Bills President and CEO on WGR 550
Q: Do you worry about your rookie quarterback bouncing back after a game like the one Sunday?
A: “One guy I really don’t worry about is EJ (Manuel). Just his mindset, each and every week, he’s even keel. He knows there were times that he didn’t play as well as he’d like (against the Jets), but he’s a guy who takes the good coaching and will spend the week just preparing and getting ready for Baltimore. His mindset has improved each and every week, win or lose. He’s very consistent, that’s what you need out of a leader and that’s what you need from your quarterback.”
