‘No one cares who came in second, third or fourth’: Bills on pressure of success
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WHEC) — The pressure of success can affect athletes in all sports, across all levels. It’s something the Buffalo Bills know a little bit about right now.
Wednesday was just day one of training camp, but expectations are high for the Bills following last season. Coming off an AFC championship, many are hopeful for another long postseason run that includes a Super Bowl.
Fans may be eager for what’s ahead, but the team is taking it one day at a time.
"Whatever we did is not gonna translate to what we did this year. It’s a new team," said quarterback Josh Allen. "We got completely new pieces. Obviously, we brought back a lot of new pieces, but when you substitute and add a couple new pieces here and there, it changes the whole dynamic of the whole thing."
"In our opinion in the locker room, we haven’t done anything yet because no one cares who came in second, third or fourth, so the job is not done until you win a Super Bowl," said wide receiver Cole Beasley. "There’s nothing to be complacent about. No one wants to just be close to being the best. There are no excuses and we have that experience so we gotta put the pieces together, and it’s not gonna be easy."
