QUOTES OF THE DAY
Head Coach Chan Gailey
On what he’s seen from RB C.J. Spiller that he may have learned from playing a lot at the end of last season:
“His confidence level just went through the roof in my opinion. He knows what to do a lot better now. He has a lot of confidence that he can play running back, he can go out and play receiver, he can do a lot of things and blocking. He’s gotten better at his blocking from the previous year. His ball security was a lot better last year. He carried it multiple times and did a good job of controlling the ball. Just his overall confidence level I think is very good this year.”
LB Nick Barnett
On his impression of the defense so far:
“With this defense, the 4-3 defense, you’ve got to have those guys up front do what they do. So far, granted we don’t have pads on and we can’t physically see what’s really going on, but they look like some monsters out there right now the way that they’re rushing. That rotation that they’ve got with all those guys; Mark Anderson, Shawne (Merriman),obviously Mario (Williams), and then our interior guys. If we keep everybody healthy we should be something to deal with.”
Former Bills RB and Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas speaks before a crowd of students, community members, and his family and friends as he was honored in his hometown of Houston, Texas in May.
