Nix: It’s not just sacks

While Bills GM Buddy Nix is just as happy to see one of Buffalo’s defensive lineman get a sack as any Bills fan, he sees value in any kind of disruption in an opponent’s passing game. And that’s an obvious key Sunday against the Patriots, which we cover on the home page of Buffalobills.com today. But Nix explains how any means of hurrying throws or forcing a QB to reset his feet can change things.

“Everybody puts a lot of emphasis, including us, on sacks and that’s the way that you measure these guys, but the big thing is not sacks,” said Nix in an appearance on the FAN 590 in Toronto. “The big thing is pressure, getting him off the spot that they want to throw from and the rhythm they want to throw with. I think we’ve done that pretty well. We’ve caused pressure and caused them to move and when you do that you give somebody else a chance to get the quarterback, plus some bad throws and turnovers in the secondary.”
