THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
August 4, 2001 — COACH MARV LEVY ENTERS PRO FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME
Head coach Marv Levy became the third member of the Buffalo Bills’ organization to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
QUOTE FOR THE DAY
QB Ryan Fitzpatrick on WR Lee Evans and the receiving corps — “In terms of leadership in the room, he (Evans) is certainly the number one guy. Everyone looks to him. The way that I look at it, our top three guys are probably as dynamic as any unit in the league. Not only do they play well, but they also play different styles and do different things. All three of those guys, with the addition of the younger guys we have coming in, are going to be pretty good if they stay healthy.”
