Buffalo Bills Team Report
Three years of high-round drafting and a free-agent spending
spree last off-season did not prevent the Buffalo Bills
from missing the play-offs for a 13th consecutive season,
the longest such streak of futility in the NFL. The team
closed out the season with a 28-9 home victory over the
New york Jets, leaving them with a 6-10 record, good for
the last place in the AFC east. Consequently, the club
is bracing for yet another round of major leadership changes.
While General Manager Buddy Nix kept his job, head coach
Chan Gailey was fired and replaced by Doug Marrone,
Eric Wood still believes the bills are close to turning
the corner. "I hope we can stick with the guys
we have and build upon what was a bad season from a
record stand point but one where I felt like we got
better," Wood Said. "It's tough to analyze
from a wins standpoint and being out of the playoffs.
But I feel like we got better when we turn on the film."
Bills lost four games by a touchdown or less, including
critical home losses to Tennessee (35-34) and St. Louis
(15-12). A three-week tailspin offensively in december
doomed the team's chances of making a run at a wild-card
