Bills head coach Chan Gailey in a conference call with the Kansas City media admitted that in his assessment at this point that the defense may take a bit longer to turn around than the offense.
“Personnel is always the toughest thing – making sure you’ve got the right people in the right spots and dealing with what they do best and what they can’t do and trying to put them in a situation to be successful,” he said. “It happened a little bit quicker on offense, maybe, than it has on defense. We were hoping to be able to transition to the 3-4 a little bit easier and quicker, but we haven’t able to do that. It may take a year kind of like it has taken Kansas City.”
Last year Kansas City was 30th in total defense, 31st in run defense and 29th in points allowed in 2009. This year thus far they are 17th overall, 6th in run defense and 7th in points allowed.
