Pass rusher vs. run stopper

Buddy Nix was also asked about the importance of a pass rusher vs. a run stopper and he made it clear what the top priority is, “The highest paid guys are the ones who rush the passer. It’s more important to us to stop the run.  I don’t think you can get where you want to be unless you can stop the run and then you can rush the passer.”

Buffalo finished 32nd in the league last year in stopping the run so there is no question it’s at the top of the list of things to improve on heading into 2011.  Head Coach Chan Gailey also mentioned in a teleforum with season tickets holders a couple weeks back that the team will probably be using the majority of their picks on defense. “If I had to say today we are going to use most of our picks defensively. I think we have to try to shore up our defense. We have to try and get stronger, get quicker, and get nastier there.”
