Bills coach Sean McDermott doesn’t have specific answers about his team’s slump ahead of Monday Night Football in Week 10 vs the Broncos.
The Buffalo Bills are facing a challenging period, having lost three out of their last five games, and their recent clash with the New York Giants proved to be a significant test. What’s concerning for Bills fans as they approach Monday Night Football in Week 10 against the Denver Broncos is that neither the team nor head coach Sean McDermott can provide clear, actionable explanations for their struggles.
McDermott expressed his frustration, stating, “We’ve been too inconsistent overall. The lack of complementary football is evident. We turned the ball over twice, and the defense had a slow start, especially on the first drive. Inconsistencies also plague our kicking game and the offense as a whole. While there have been some good plays, they are simply not enough.”
This echoes the sentiment expressed by general manager Brandon Beane, who mentioned that the team is still searching for its “identity.”
The harsh reality is that the Bills’ leadership is grappling with uncertainty about what is truly ailing the team and how to rectify it. If they had specific answers, they would be discussing strategies like improving the running game on early downs or increasing blitzing. Relying on vague terms like “inconsistency” and “identity” serves as a crutch when there are no precise solutions to offer.
