Scott Chandler on Red Zone blues

Bills TE Scott Chandler says the team really has not done that bad a job in the red zone producing touchdowns this year, despite the 0-4 struggle against Miami last Thursday.

In an appearance on The John Murphy Show Monday night, Chandler says the failure in the red zone against the Dolphins was not something the team has experienced much in the first ten games this season.  And he says there’s no sense of discouragement in the Buffalo locker room about the problems punching it into the end zone.

“I don’t think we’re discouraged,” Chandler said.  “You look at the season as a  whole, we still have been pretty good.  We got off to a real great start.  We did a pretty good job against the Patriots a couple of weeks ago. But I definitely think that’s a focus of our offense, when we get down there we need to score touchdowns, usually when we do that, we’re going to be pretty successful.”

Chandler and his teammates returned to One Bills Drive Monday to start practicing for the Colts game this coming Sunday.  And he says the Bills are playing with a sense of desperation now, with their chances of snaring a playoff spot hanging by a thread.

“I think we’re a desperate team.  We’ve got no margin for error,” he said.  “But all we can do is take it a week at a time, a game at a  time.”

“We’re going out there,  it’s do or die every week.  We’ve got to go out there and get a win.”

The John Murphy Show airs weeknights from 7-9pm on the flagship station of the Bills, WGR Sports Radio 550.
