THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
January 28, 1991 — BUFFALO WELCOMES HOME THE BILLS 
An estimated crowd of 20,000 people came out to a ‘Welcome Home’ rally for the Bills on the steps of City Hall. They chanted, “We want Scott! We want Scott!” This was after kicker Scott Norwood missed a 47-yard field goal that would have won Super Bowl XXV for Buffalo; the Bills lost the game, 20-19.

The Buffalo Bills introduced Jim Schwartz as the team’s defensive coordinator yesterday. Schwartz, 47, will enter his 21st year in the NFL coaching ranks and ninth as a defensive coordinator. He served in the same capacity with the Tennessee Titans from 2001-08 overseeing a defense that finished in the top 10 in both rushing yards allowed per game (5th-103.5) and third down conversion rate (6th-36.1%) during his tenure. Hired in 2009 as the Detroit Lions head coach, Schwartz led Detroit to a 10-6 record in 2011 en route to the team’s first playoff appearance since 1999.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Jim Schwartz, Buffalo Bills Defensive Coordinator
On the Bills defense:
We have some outstanding players up front and it goes beyond Mario Williams, it goes beyond Kyle Williams, it goes beyond Marcell Dareus. I mean Alan Branch, Jerry Hughes, I’m sure I’m overlooking a ton of guys. There’s some talent up front and it’s on these coaches to put those guys in good position to make plays. Whether that’s carry over from last year’s scheme, whether that’s new things that we bring. I think that’s what coaching is all about, we put players in position to make plays and that’s a pretty easy group to do it. We’ll be fast, we’ll be physical, and we’ll attack. We are not going to be a reading defense. There’s going to be a lot of defensive lineman that will be real happy to play in a system like that.”
