Stevie Johnson hasn’t been shy about trying to pub up Buffalo everywhere he goes. While his play in 2010 helped draw more attention to the Queen City, in an interview with Pro Football Focus he was asked what it’s truly like to play in Buffalo despite the fact that they haven’t been successful in terms of wins and losses. Here’s what he said.
SJ: The fans are still down for you. It’s easy to suit up every week even though you haven’t been to the playoffs in a while. It’s like if the fans still care and they still come to see the team, you can’t give up on them. They’re sitting out in the cold, cheering for [us despite] coming in at 4-12. It’s easy to play for fans like that. At the same time, I’d rather build a dynasty than to join one. I said it before on the Twitter handle and I go by it. That’s why I went to the University of Kentucky. It was a team that was down and we end up turning it around. Hopefully we can do the same thing in Buffalo. I’ve got a lot of faith in our guys and I feel like we can turn this thing around.
