Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott joined Mike Schopp and The Bulldog as part of "Football Monday" on WGR-550 AM on Monday.
The Bills head man chatted about how he reacts after a loss personality-wise, his belief in the importance, or lack thereof, of the loss of Marcell Dareus, and what he learned from his time in Philadelphia and Carolina and how that can be imbued in Buffalo. McDermott finished discussing the sports science of internal body clocks for their West Coast trip, and continuing the development of team mental toughness.
Sean McDermott: "Listen, the sun came up this morning and you try to keep perspective on life ... I look forward to turning things around in a hurry."
Sean McDermott: "Number one, you don't want to kill the patient. You want to attack the problem. Until we show we're better than that, like we did in the 5 wins, we have some work to do ... football sometimes comes down to just whipping the guy in front of you."
Sean McDermott: "As you build — in the last two places I've been — you go through growing pains. That's just part of the growth process. Do you like it? No. But you have to get stronger because of it."
Sean McDermott: "I'm confident in every single guy on this team. We've stopped the run before with the same guys that were on the field yesterday."
