Sammy Watkins & LeSean McCoy On Bills Needing More Discipline & a Purge


The Buffalo Bills fired former head coach Rex Ryan, and now players are coming out about how the locker room needs to change in order to move to winning ways.

Rex Ryan has known to be “player friendly” when it came to his coaching style, wide receiver Sammy Watkins spoke on how the Bills needs a new head coach that brings leadership to the locker room:

“I think they just have to come in and whatever coach that we have, and I think (interim coach Anthony) Lynn is a great coach. He has that demeanor, that leadership,” Watkins said, per the team’s official website. “But the new coach has to change what needs to be changed. Change the culture, change the mindset and get players on board. If they’re not listening, cut them, kick them out, whatever. Sit them on the bench. I think that will help us move forward.”

LeSean McCoy even spoke how the team has enough talent to be competitive in the league but discipline needs to be in place in order to do that:

“I think the discipline has been an issue,” McCoy said to reporters, via ESPN. “I just think that players just (need to take) accountability for their own actions. It’s one thing to talk about discipline and guys not (being) bought in. But if they’re not doing (their job), you can’t really take (them credibly). I just think as players, as professionals, we need to step up and play accountable. That’s the biggest issue.”

It seems like the players loved Rex Ryan, but at the same  instance, players need to be disciplined when their not performing on the field. The players weren’t taking jabs at Ryan, but just expressed how bad they want to win and change the Bills culture, and it starts with holding each other accountable.
