Nix on O-line and Fitz

Posted by Chris Brown on September 20, 2011 – 7:18 am

Bills GM Buddy Nix addressed the Monday QB Club the day after Buffalo’s win over Oakland and had some praise for his team’s offensive line as well as a comment regarding speculation on a contract extension for Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Nix felt the job turned in by the offensive line was a quality performance knowing the caliber of the Raiders’ defensive front.

“Oakland, this is the best Oakland team as far as coaching and talent that I’ve seen in 10 years,” he said. “So it’s encouraging that they’ve got eight defensive linemen and they look like they can block out the sun when they get out there. To be able to keep him off our quarterback is a pretty good feat. Our quarterback if you keep him upright and don’t let him get hit early he can do a lot of good things for us.”

Nix then responded to the speculation that talks have begun on an extension for Fitzpatrick.

“They say we’re in contract negotiations and that’s news to me,” said Nix. “But don’t tell anyone I was saying a lot of good things about him.”
