QUOTE OF THE DAY
Bills C Eric Wood
On helping rookie LT Cordy Glenn adjust to the NFL game:
“I give him little pointers all the time and try to help him out. He has a lot of talent and he has a lot on his shoulders right now. He is doing a great job. Probably the best thing about him is he is a really even-keeled kid. I kind of ride with my emotions at times. I always mess with him and tell him I wish I had his demeanor at times. I am sure he wishes he had mine at times. He is going to have a consistent year for us because he can kind of control his emotions and he does not ride with the ups and downs of the game—like a good quarterback. He is a consistent player for us over there.”
