John Murphy Show: Bills coach says 'We're building a team, we're not tanking'

Bills insider Chris Brown joined John Murphy and Donald Jones on WGR-550 AM on Monday.

Brown lamented the Yankees' loss in the playoffs, but the true focus was the play of the Bills — and the play of Tyrod Taylor, coming back with less than 3 minutes left in the game to tie and later win the game. Brown also talked about the best takeaways from the victory, answered listener calls and discussed the strategy of throwing to the end zone with 12 seconds remaining in the first half and what has happened in terms of team development.

Audio from Sean McDermott's press conference was also played, where the Bills coach discussed the injury situation, reaction from the Tampa Bay win, the play of the offensive line, the lack of depth from defensive backs and looking forward to Oakland.

Running back Taiwan Jones also joined Murphy and Brown, and he talked about his key fourth quarter play on third-and-9, integrating into the team, playing his old team the Raiders and what he sees in quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

Quotable

Taiwan Jones on facing the Raiders: "This is a game I had circled on my calendar ... they let me go on my birthday."

Sean McDermott: "I wanted to see, can we win close games, checked that box. A lot of heart, guys continued to play extremely hard and coaches made adjustments ... a total team game."

Sean McDermott: "Biggest picture right now really is that we continue to grow and evolve for whatever may come down the road. That said the schedule - we faced the same type of schedule, similar schedule in Carolina last year ... a lot of big tests ahead and we're just trying to take it one day at a time and improve every day."

Sean McDermott: "Biggest thing is the four letter word — 'team.' There's a lot of ways to build them, but it starts with team."

Sean McDermott: "Sacks are great ... but you gotta be able to affect the quarterback."

Sean McDermott: "We're building a team, we're not tanking."

Chris Brown: "This is a team that over the course of its history has really had a mental toughness issue."

John Murphy: "Donald, at the risk of sounding like a grumpy old man, I think we've crossed the line with touchdown celebrations."

Rick Dennison: "We tried to do what was good for our guys and team."

Rick Dennison: "Tyrod's mind was on winning the game ... he's the first one to talk to Shady post-fumble."
