Bills GM Buddy Nix not afraid of the Patriots
Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix told the Toronto Sun that their focus this season is the win the AFC East.
“Every really good coach I’ve ever been with, they emphasize [winning the division] strongly, and we always have,” Nix said. “I think it all starts there. You start depending on the wild card, and you might win 11 games and not get in. But if you win your division, even by winning eight games, you get in. So that’s what ya gotta do.”
Nix has lofty expectations for his team and made it clear that the Patriots don’t scare him.
“No, I like high expectations,” Nix said. “I’ve never been many places where if you didn’t have ‘em, that good things happen. So I think they oughta expect a lot of us. We expect a lot out of ourselves. New England, the AFC — they don’t scare me. I think we can compete with any of ‘em, and our intention is to try to win the division.”
