The Buffalo Bills' quintessential chip-on-the-shoulder player insists he's with a chip-on-the-shoulder team.
Bills running back Fred Jackson told NFL Network today that all of the expectations surrounding the 2012 season are nice, but they still have to show it on game days.
"I think you always want to be considered one of the best, and we know that we haven't proven anything," Jackson said. "We still have to step out on the football field and make plays and put us in a position to be known as one of the better or dominant teams. So that's just another thing for us to shoot for: Go out there and kind of set the bar high for ourselves, give people reason to think that we're a dominant team.
"So we don't mind being a sleeper. We don't mind being a team that nobody talks about, just because, like I said, we haven't proven anything. Hopefully we let our play talk for us when we get out there."
