Bills owner Ralph Wilson introduced top pick C.J. Spiller to the WNY media Friday afternoon, and believes he will be the player that spearheads the measures to turn Buffalo into a playoff contender.
Wilson accepted blame for the team’s struggles over the past decade, but truly believes Spiller is a dynamic talent that can change the team’s fortunes.
“The Buffalo Bills for the last 10 years, which is my fault, this has been a dull team, really dull,” said Wilson. “It’s no fun to go out there. I said to one of our coaches a few years ago, ‘You know there’s no excitement. We just sit here.’ He said, ‘Listen if you win that’s all that counts, winning.’ The only thing is we didn’t win much.
“We’re going to turn that around I can tell you with our new general manager Buddy Nix and our new head coach Chan Gailey and his assistants. We’re going to turn this ship around starting off with what we think is a great draft pick. This is a special guy. We were lucky enough (to get him). We think we got one of the best players in the country.”
