QUOTE OF THE DAY
Bills Head Coach Chan Gailey
On what he wants to see from the team during training camp:
“First of all, defensively we have to all be on the same page. We have to get the new calls, the new process and get a feel for each other a lot better. Offensively we have to build on what we did in the first seven games last year. If we do those two things, and our kicking game continues to progress which we have made good progress (with), I think we will be where we want to be when the season starts.”
