In relieving Chan Gailey and his staff of coaching duties for the Bills, some outside the organization are of the opinion that the team is back to square one in building a playoff contender. Bills GM Buddy Nix disagrees.
“As far as us being back to square one, when we decided we were going to build this team through the draft, sign our own guys and be a small player for the most part in free agency, that takes time,” said Nix. “I think the thing that keeps us from being back at square one is the players we got. We’ve got good depth. We’ve got quality in our offensive line and defensive line. We’ve got young players. We started six first- or second-year players in defense. You’re going to make some mistakes doing that, but they’re going to get better, and they’re good players. We’ve just got to keep adding to them.”
There’s no question the Bills have a greater depth of talent. The key will be those players living up to the potential of that talent and the right head coach and staff can help push them even further.
