New tight ends coach Pete Metzelaars, who spent some 1-on-1 time with Buffalobills.com, did have an interesting take on the team that he suited up for over 10 of his 17 years as an NFL player. Metzelaars was part of all four AFC title teams, but he’s had a look at the franchise from afar ever since and he provides an interesting perspective.
“I think they’re a team that started building in the draft,” he said. ”They missed on some draft picks in the past and it hurt them. When you miss on high draft picks it hurts you in the NFL. They’ve hit some recently and have continued to do so. I think they’re headed in the right direction. Everybody is very positive here and has good feelings about where the organization and the team are headed.
“They got off to the quick start last year and hit a bad patch and they want to build upon the good things that took place last year. I think the feeling amongst the coaches, the organization, and I think the players is that we are going to build upon the good things that we did last year and let’s go forward from here. I think it’s a very positive outlook on things that are taking place.”
