QUOTE FOR THE DAY
Bills RB Fred Jackson on QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (from Tim Graham’s article on ESPN.com’s AFC East Blog) — “They showed they have a lot of faith in Fitz.  Me and my teammates all have a lot of faith in him, too. We’re excited about that. I’m looking forward to working with him and trying to build on what we did last year and making that playoff push.”
