QUOTES OF THE DAY
DOUG MARRONE, Buffalo Bills Head Coach
Q: Can you comment on what Jerry Hughes and Manny Lawson have provided for you on the edges on defense?
A: I think Manny has done extremely well, playing the edges and forcing it. Really making a lot of plays on the run, whereas I think before in the past people have said, ‘Is he strong enough? Can he hold the point?’ He’s proved he can do that, so that’s been extremely well for us. I think Jerry’s given us a lot with the pass rush. He’s very quick, very fast; I think he’s someone that you’ve got to watch and study on film. It’s not one of those things where you’re like, ‘I’m going against Jerry Hughes, and I’ll be fine.’ You’ve got to pick it up. Those two players and those two acquisitions have been good for us.
