QUOTE OF THE DAY
RB C.J. Spiller
On if he feels the 2012 season can be a playoff year:
“Every year we have high expectations. It’s just a matter that we had some big time names added to our roster during the offseason. Every year we’re expecting to make the playoffs and make a run. But we don’t want to just get to the playoffs. We’re trying to get to the Super Bowl. Why get to the playoffs if you’re not trying to win it? That’s what we talk about – being champions. If you’re not trying to be a champion then you’re in the wrong business.” – On SiriusXM NFL Radio Blitz with Rich Gannon & Adam Schein
