Inside The Bills

Schonert issued the warning a while back

Even when the Bills were rolling up victories at the start of the season, offensive coordinator Turk Schonert warned his players not to rest on their laurels because there were deficiencies to their game.

“Everyone kind of forgot we are a young team,” said Schonert. “Not just (Edwards), our running backs, our tight ends, our receivers.  We are a young football team.  I told these guys way back when, we have won a few games and we have made mental errors.  If we don’t correct them it is going to come back to bite us in the butt, and it did and it has.”

There’s no debating that it’s harder to take lessons from a win because you’re so happy you won, and when you win four in a row it’s easy to forget the errors. I’m not saying the Bills did, but Turk certainly seems to think so. Hopefully the losses have them focused on fixing what is affecting their consistency.
