Bills RB C.J. Spiller provided a look at the collective mindset of the 2012 Buffalo Bills. While a lot of Bills fans will be happy to see an end to the team’s long playoff drought, the players have greater aspirations.
On SiriusXM NFL Radio with Adam Schein and Rich Gannon, Spiller explained why the Bills are setting the bar higher than just the playoffs.
“We split with New England (last year),” said Spiller. “We had the Giants on the ropes. We are close to being a Super Bowl team.”
Spiller made it sound as though the players in Buffalo’s locker room have a very confident mindset.
“Every year we expect to win and make the playoffs and make a run, but we don’t just want to make the playoffs, we’re trying to get to the Super Bowl,” said Spiller. “Why get to the playoffs if you’re not trying to win the Super Bowl? That’s the ultimate and that’s what we talk about is being champions. If you’re not trying to be a champion as we say, ‘You’re in the wrong business.'”
That final comment is a direct influence from head coach Chan Gailey, who has said several times that if you’re not trying to be a champion you shouldn’t be playing or coaching in the NFL.
