Bills GM Buddy Nix Calls Out Defense For Lack Of Urgency
Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix said today he thinks his team simply needs to play with more urgency, Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News reports. Nix stopped to talk about the Bills' two-game collapse in between recruiting visits to Arizona State University and the University of Arizona.
Asked what he sees from the Bills' defense when he watches film, Nix said:
"To be completely honest with you, what I see is not enough intensity and urgency. ... And that could be on any segment or as far as any part of our group. But to play defense you've gotta play fast and you've got to play reckless and you've got to play aggressive.
"For some reason, especially in the second half of both games, we didn't do that. We were a step slow reacting. We missed tackles. We didn't get off blocks. When you miss tackles, usually it's one of two things, it's talent or lack of effort. We've seen these guys do it before so I think they can. We gotta get that urgency back somehow."
