Why good is no longer good enough

For the Bills the past couple of years has been about becoming a good team. Now they want to be better than that.

According to Kelvin Sheppard in his exclusive 1-on-1 interview with, Sheppard emphasized why good is no longer good enough for this team.

“It won’t be good enough or accepted from the players or the coaches,” Sheppard told “On the defensive side and with Fitzpatrick and those guys it’s the same on offense. I know myself last year and they say it went on years before that. When guys have a good game and say, ‘Oh good job. That was good. That was good.’ But hey, how many rings do we have up here? How many banners have we hung up here being good or average?

“So once you take it to that next step is what my coach Bob Sanders preaches to me all the time. He’ll tell me, ‘Hey Shep you had a really good practice, but I’m scared to tell you that because once you think you’re good you get complacent.’ That’s where the failure starts to occur so you always strive to be great. No one is ever going to be perfect, so if you strive for that perfection you have no choice but to succeed.”
