Bills Hall of Fame QB Jim Kelly in the middle of a battle against sinus cancer is in between treatments and made the trip down to One Bills Drive with his brother Dan to take in the team’s final minicamp practice. Head coach Doug Marrone let Kelly break down the huddle to start practice, but Jim didn’t realize the methods of breaking down huddles ha changed.
When he broke down the huddle as a player he just counted off 1, 2, 3 and everyone would yell, “Whoot!”
The players of today now await the word to yell from the guy breaking down the huddle. Without such an instruction Jim yelled “Whoot!” all by himself, which promote some snickers among the 90 players.
On Jim’s second crack he said, “Alright we’re going with playoffs, and for you southern guys that like warm weather get ready to play in January. One, two, three, PLAYOFFS!”
