As soon as he said it in the locker room Monday morning he knew how it would play with Bills fans. After uttering the sentence, ‘We’ll get this thing turned around,’ Jackson immediately explained that he and a lot of other players who have been on the roster a while know fans are tired of the promise talk.
“I’m sure people are sick of us saying that,” Jackson said. ”We’re going to hear the moans and groans and everybody saying it’s the same old, same old thing they’ve been hearing since I’ve been here. That’s fair for them to do, but we’re working.
“Nobody is more disappointed in our season than us. The outside stuff that’s just people being human. They have their opinions. I can tell you that with all the fans that are disappointed, their disappointment doesn’t compare to the disappointment in this locker room.
“We want to get this thing turned around more than anybody because we’re the ones out there competing and busting our butts. We don’t want to be sitting here with four wins on the season with a 4-9 record. That’s not where we want to be. That’s not what we signed up to play for. It’s not in our job description to have a 4-9 season and be okay with it. That’s not what this locker room is about. We’ll continue to work at it. We’ll do everything we can to get these last three games under our belt and get these last three wins.”
Jackson just hopes their results over their last three Sundays backs up what he’s saying knowing for Bills fans actions will speak a whole lot louder than words.
