Wood - Realistic about change after 10th loss

December 23, 2012 Updated Dec 23, 2012 at 10:52 PM EDT

Miami Gardens (WKBW) We've always known Eric Wood is a fierce competitor. This week we learned he has no problem being honest.
Wednesday Wood refused to take back his comments about the Toronto Series being "a joke". Sunday, on the heels of the Bills 10th loss of the season, Wood wasn't shy about the possibility of change
within the organization.

"I'd hate to start over and that's not what I want but when you lose this many games I understand change happens. And
it's gonna happen at some position. That's just the way the league works", said Wood. "I hope for zero change. I appreciate
the guys we have and I think we can win with this group but the reality of the league is when you lose this many games
something is obviously going to happen", Wood continued.

Clearly the future remains uncertain for Chan Gailey.
The loss to the Dolphins dropped the Bills to 15-and-32 in three seasons under the head coach.
Gailey was asked point blank if he was concerned about his job status following the 24-10 setback at Sun Life Stadium.

"No", said Gailey. "I'm worried about getting better. Playing to our abilities. We are not there", said the head coach.

Bills General Manager Buddy Nix said earlier in the season that Gailey would be back. I wonder how he feels now with losses in four of the last five.Over the last two weeks Nix has declined to speak about the future of the team until after the season but
he obviously has some decisions to make.

As much as I believe in continuity, and as much as I like Chan Gailey as a person, it's nearly impossible to preach progress at
5-and-10. The Bills need a win over the Jets in the finale just to match their record from last season. This in a year that that team was expected to take a big step forward.

"You can turn on the film and I think we are better than last year or the year before, but when you don't win games
you can't justify that", said Wood.

Tough to also justify not making any changes at this point.

All week long leading into the Dolphins game we heard about playing for pride, playing for each other and playing for the coaches.
Now what??
