The Bills had an eight-game losing streak in Year 1 under Chan Gailey, got off to a 5-2 start in Year 2 under him and had a seven-game losing streak in the back half of the 2011 season. All of it has Gailey and his players convinced they can handle anything that comes their way in 2012.
“The majority of our team has been through a fast start and a slow start, so I think we are mentally capable for the majority of our team of handling whichever thing happens,” said Gailey. “You try to handle the good things when they happen and I think we’ll be better at handling that this year. I think we’ve proven that we can handle the tough times and try to bounce back a little bit. But I don’t want to try to prove that again.”
“That’s the one thing as a team we have to manage,” said Fred Jackson. “We can’t listen to everything that’s going on especially if there are lulls when something may happen. We have to believe in the system and what we can do as players. I think the number one thing is to have confidence in ourselves and stay even-keeled throughout the season. I think we got ahead of ourselves last year. We were feeling pretty good about ourselves and then we had some injuries that kind of riddled us. We’ve learned from that and hopefully we can move on and continue to make some plays throughout the season this year.”
