Nix: Time to contend is now

Bills GM Buddy Nix set the tone with his opening press conference at training camp, stating very matter of factly that it’s time for the club to win some games and truly contend for the AFC East crown and a long awaited playoff berth.

“Obviously the offseason acquisitions helped (raise expectations), but I still think it was time for us,” said Nix. “If we had not gotten Mario (Williams) and Mark (Anderson) it would have still been time to start winning some games. We’ve done some things right, I think, and we’ve probably made some mistakes along the way. But it’s time to close it out and win some games and until we do it is not complete.”
Now in Year 3 under Nix and Gailey, the GM believes it’s time the team turn a big corner and become a perennial contender instead of perennial also ran.
“I don’t think anything has changed as far as the way we look at things and our attitude about things, but I do think we are realistic enough to know that the first year or two we did not have enough depth and enough playmakers to make a difference and probably contend all the way through the year,” said Nix. “But I think the feeling is different now and I think we do (have enough depth and playmakers). I believe losing and not being in contention throughout the year will be a huge disappointment, for all of us.”
