When a head coach is dismissed during the season it’s an obvious indication that more change is soon to follow at the conclusion of the season. That’s why every player in Buffalo’s locker room quickly realized that unless they put some quality performances on tape over these last seven games that Dick Jauron won’t be the only one out of a job.
“That’s the nature of this business,” said George Wilson. “Change is coming. Change started (Tuesday). Change came (Wednesday) and it’s going to come again in the future. For me I don’t feel I have to change anything. As a team we have to be very mindful of this is your livelihood. You’re going to have a new coach come in and be very critical of the tape. He’ll be looking for ballers, looking for guys showing the right attitude, a team attitude and a willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done. We have to put ourselves in a position to get a good job evaluation and see where the chips fall when the changes set in.”
Whether every player is taking the same approach as Wilson will be easily seen on the field over the last seven weeks. Though interim head coach Perry Fewell agrees with his strong safety, he doesn’t feel their approach now should need to change. It should have been that way all along.
“I think they always play for their future,” said Fewell of the players. “Each and every game. What you put on tape is your resume. I feel like they do that every week they go out and play.”
