Bills head coach Chan Gailey in addressing his team about their upcoming division game against the Patriots made things plain to his players.
“All I understand is neither one of them likes each other,” said Gailey of the two teams. ”We don’t like them and they don’t like us and I talked about that in the team meeting to help some of them understand that there’s that feeling between the two teams and we’re going into a hostile environment and you’ve got to get ready to play.”
Gailey however, did not mention the 13-game winning streak that the Patriots have over the Bills. He said he understands why it carries weight with fans, but said it has no impact.
“It has nothing to do with this year and this team,” he said.
And Bill Belichick agreed.
“Doesn’t mean anything,” said Belichick. ”Those games are all in the past. Different players…new coach coaching, different players playing. I don’t think they care anything about those games and I don’t think we care about them either. That’s all behind us. We’re just focused on this week and Sunday afternoon’s game. That’s what it’s all about.”
