QUOTE FOR THE DAY

 “We spend our time now working on things that we sort of cram in around OTAs. But we’re able to take our time doing them now which is breaking down preseason opponents and breaking down our early regular season opponents. We’re able to get some general ideas about what we want to do against those teams, look at their personnel and maybe how their personnel changes. How you would attack that? And then we go back through and we try to hit all scenarios. How many scenarios can we hit? Do we have to adjust our OTA installation schedule and our camp installation schedule? How do we have to adjust to all of that trying to take into account all the scenarios that might be available?”—Bills Head Coach Chan Gailey on the coaches meetings during the off-season
