QUOTES OF THE DAY
GM Buddy Nix
On how an improved pass rush can help the secondary (via SiriusXM NFL Radio on March 26):
“I don’t care if you’re an average quarterback in this league, if you let him stay on rhythm and set his feet, he’ll pick you apart.  You have to make that guy move and throw off balance.  If our front four can do that then all the sudden our corners and safeties get a lot better.”

Peter King – Sports Illustrated.com NFL Columnist
On his top 10 free agent moves he’s liked the most so far:
“No. 4: DE Mark Anderson from New England to Buffalo. The Bills’ defensive line has a tremendously improved look right now. Keep in mind new defensive coordinator Dave Wannstedt will switch to a 4-3. He’ll have Mario Williams at left end and Anderson and Chris Kelsay (and maybe a draft choice) playing the right side, with Kyle Williams, Marcell Dareus and Torell Troup in the middle. That’s the best line in the AFC East.”  Click here for the full story>>>
