QUOTE FOR THE DAY
Bills rookie linebacker Kelvin Sheppard on his situation coming to Buffalo (from Allen Wilson’s story in the Buffalo News 6/3/11) — “I kind of came in a unique situation because I got guys like Andra and Reggie that reach out and say, ‘We’re older guys, and we’ve been doing this. You’re young and it’s your time to come in and make an impact and help us win.’  That’s what they are about. I’ve got guys who have been in the league for 10 years, so they know the ins and outs. They know the kind of feeling I’m going to have, the kind of emotions, what I’m going to go through as a rookie and they are able to tell me those things and give me tips and pointers.”

NOTES AND NUMBERS
Uniform Fact of the Day
During their first decade of play in the 1960s, the Bills’ helmet underwent several changes.  The helmet worn in 1960 and 1961 was silver/gray with royal blue numbers on the side.  From 1962-64, the team wore white helmets with a red standing buffalo on the side and a red center stripe.  In 1965, two blue stripes were added to either side of the single red stripe down the center of the helmet.  Those helmets also featured the players’ numbers on the back next to the stripes.  That style of helmet was worn from 1965-73.
