Bills ‘D’ mindful of big play

Posted by Chris Brown on November 13, 2011 – 7:55 am

Bills S George Wilson and the rest of the Buffalo defense knows they’ve fallen victim to the big play in a couple of their losses this season. They also know the Cowboys have a couple of playmaking talents that can victimize them today if they’re not careful.

“We can’t give up big plays; we can’t give up explosive plays,” Wilson told the NFL Network earlier this week. “They do a great job of having explosive games in the running game as well as the passing game, and now since [DeMarco] Murray has come on he’s really given them a great balanced attack and allowed them to play-action off of it.

“With the vertical threats on the outside, they allow Jason Witten and [Martellus] Bennett to control the middle of the field. Tony Romo has a plethora of playmakers to get the ball to and it takes the burden off of him to always have to make a play.”

WR Dez Bryant and TE Jason Witten are tied for the team lead with 11 third down receptions apiece. Three of Bryant’s 11 have gone for touchdowns this season.

Stevie: We’ve got to play loose

Posted by Chris Brown on November 12, 2011 – 11:29 am

The Bills offensive production has waned a bit the past few weeks. While sustaining their torrid point production pace from the start of the season would’ve been difficult to maintain Stevie Johnson believes they can get back to that kind of production easily.

“(We’ve got to) just let it go, go out there and have fun,” he said. “We’ve been playing our game plan and we’ve been doing that, but I think we’ve kind of got out of being loose and having fun.  We’ve been a more structured team. That’s what I feel like when we are on offense instead of going out there and being loose. I think sometimes we are more thinking about not making a mistake then just playing.”

Perhaps playing on the road will help them loosen up without there being a home crowd to keep happy.

Chan not about Dallas history

Posted by Chris Brown on November 9, 2011 – 11:08 am

Bills head coach Chan Gailey admitted earlier in the year that beating the Chiefs in the opener would carry a little extra having been fired by that organization in 2009. He was asked if he’d carry a little extra with him this week heading into the Week 10 matchup with Dallas, knowing he was fired by Jerry Jones after just two years as head coach.

“Obviously, I’ve worked a lot of places unfortunately, but it’s one of those deals where you remember your time there and there were some good times and some bad times,” said Gailey. “But that’s not the focus. The focus is trying to win a game. We need to go win the game, we’ve got everything in front of us, we hold our own destiny in our own hands, so we’ve got to go take care of business.”

Jones admitted years later that it’s one of the biggest mistakes he’s made as owner of the Dallas Cowboys. It wouldn’t surprise me if Gailey felt the need to remind him by posting a win over Jones’ club Sunday.
