QUOTE OF THE DAY
DOUG MARRONE Buffalo Bills Head Coach
On the team moving forward…
“We have to keep working on what we need to do from three phases from coaches, offense, defense, and special teams. And then we have to work as players. Its really that simple, but its hard to do. Thats what we are working on. And that is what we will do. I told the players, ‘Does it hurt? Absolutely. We had a great opportunity. We had that opportunity because we did a heck of a job last week, and now we come on the road again and we fell short. We are going to fire our butts off now. We have to get back and we have to go in and play a good Kansas City team. It is a great challenge for us. We are going to have to go in and beat them and then create another opportunity somewhere else in the schedule. I am fired about it. I am fired up to get back and start coaching and get this thing right. I told the players that there are things here and there that we have to do and we just have to get them right…”
