Brandon: Continuity the No. 1 variable

Bills President Russ Brandon made his weekly appearance on flagship station WGR Sportsradio 550 and was asked about working in collaboration with new owners Kim and Terry Pegula moving forward. He was also asked about his take on what caters to team success over the long haul and reiterated some of his comments from when he was handed day-to-day control of the team back in 2013.

“Obviously with owners like Terry and Kim it can only be a major positive not only for our brand, but also in NFL circles. What they’ve done with the Sabres and the profile that they’ve added has been tremendous. We’ll look to add that here also,” said Brandon. “One of the ways you don’t in this league is since 1998 we’ve had seven head coaches, nine offensive coordinators, seven defensive coordinators and six general managers. That is not a formula for winning. Continuity is the number one variable when it comes to winning in this league and we need to have that as we move forward.”

When asked if he’s made that known to Pegulas, Brandon indicated he has been very transparent in communicating that stance.

“I’ve been very open about that,” he said. “I’ve said it many times publicly and privately. We’ve been to two playoffs games since 1998. We’ve had too many different schemes and coaches and you’re not going to win in this league by changing every couple of years. That’s my belief and feeling.  I’ve been very pleased with what’s happened here. We want to win more games, but if you look at our roster today and where it was a couple of years ago, Doug Whaley has done a very good job of building our roster to where it is today.”
