McDermott: "There's an overall optimism about where we are as a team"

December 31, 2018 - 5:58 pm

Season number two is officially in the books for Buffalo Bills' head coach Sean McDermott. After a 9-7 record last year and an overdue playoff berth, McDermott's Bills took a step back and fell to 6-10 in 2018.

McDermott's two-year record as a head coach now sits at 15-17, and he met with the media over at One Bills Drive this afternoon to discuss the season that was, and what's to come in the offseason.


McDermott on special teams:

"There were times we didn't play well enough. We'll dive deeper into that in the next couple of days."


McDermott on the future:

"There's an overall optimism about where we are as a team. The players understand where we are with this football team. I encourage them to watch the playoffs and the intensity."


McDermott on the QB and LB positions:

"As you look at Josh [Allen] and Tremaine Edmunds, it's a totally different complexion than what we had at those two positions just a year ago."


McDermott on the offensive line:

"There were times where we didn't play well enough. The game is won or lost up front. That is an area we have to look hard at this offseason."


McDermott on LeSean McCoy:

"I just think overall, he had one of those years. It's not just on him, it's on us as an offense. Overall, we just couldn't get him into a rhythm."
