Nick Barnett sat at his locker in stunned silence Sunday afternoon. It was hard for him to believe that the Bills gave up 311 yards rushing to the 49ers on just 38 carries (8.2 avg.). Looking around at all the defensive talent in his locker room, it just simply does not compute in his mind.
“It’s very stunning to me,” Barnett said. “I would never imagine this situation with this defense. I believe in all these guys and I believe in their heart and I believe in their potential and the way that we can play. For whatever reason it is we’re not playing the way we’re supposed to.”
Barnett could only shake his head, but he tried to keep a stiff upper lip knowing 11 more games lie in front of the Bills.
“I don’t lose hope,” said Barnett. “I’m going to keep striking and keep pushing forward because I know we have the potential. Potential is such a dangerous word, but I know it’s there and I know the character we have in this room. We’ve just got to show it.”
