The Buffalo Bills introduced Sean McDermott as their new head coach. McDermott displayed a hard working methodical manner. While that is all well and good Monday thru Saturday, McDermott must show decisiveness on Sunday.
The second question McDermott was given, who was WGR 550 reporter Sal Cappacio, which came from why he decided on coming to Buffalo.
“Yeah, you know Sal when I looked at this job I had done my research and you will get to know me soon enough here, I am a pretty meticulous and thorough guy,” McDermott started. “In my opinion this was the best job on the market. Some people may not agree with it, but it is important how I feel.”
We have heard that a lot of times, but what made it true was what he continued with.
“I say it was the best job on the market for a couple reasons namely the ownership of Terry and Kim (Pegula),” he continued. “I have seen what great ownership looks like and we have two great owners in Terry and Kim who are willing to give anything to this football team and this organization, and the city of Buffalo. Secondly when you talk about a fan base I have been up here and I have played here before and I have seen those fans, capacity crowd hanging over that railing screaming while we were trying to do something on the other sideline and that is what I want to be apart of.”
Mc Dermott’s methodical nature was overwhelminglying clear when he asked what kind of defense he would run.
“Whether we’ll be a 4-3 or a 3-4, I come from a 4-3 background,” he answered. “I’ve worked with a 3-4 as well. Again, strategically right now I’m not going to say we’re going to be– I don’t want to get into that right now. I’m going to put the players in position to be successful.”
As for calling the plays, McDermott stated he will be involved in all facets of the game. So everything will fall onto him.
In the end, McDermott has the all the the old of making the Bills great. The question is can he do it on Sunday when it matters the most.
