Bills center Eric Wood joined Mike Schopp and The Bulldog as part of "Football Monday" on WGR-550 AM on Monday. Wood discussed the Bills' big win over the Raiders, citing his belief in McDermott's plan, his calling Shady's touchdown, the importance of being able to run and dominate in inclement weather and how that affects a "California team" like Oakland.
Wood then talked about the thoughts on the Jets game Thursday, the way the schedule changes for a night game, Sean McDermott's approach to playoffs and of course, the process. Wood also has a healthy debate on the idea of culture and its relative importance to the hosts.
Wood: "That's how we're built to win games — play good defense, run the ball down someone's throat, let us play sound and eventually pull away ... when a West Coast team comes out to play at 1 o'clock and it's cold and rainy that's what we should do."
Wood, on predicting LeSean McCoy's touchdown in the huddle: "If feel like they're ready to crack, take off ... it was fun when we got to the sideline when we could joke about it — 'You called that.' "
Wood: "I like playing in primetime games, I think it's fun ... if you can get your body ready for this one, then the after part is great."
Wood: "No coach has talked as much about the culture we're trying to create."
