BUFFALO, N.Y. [WKBW] — Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott is ready to turn the page.
After the Bills' best season in nearly 30 years came to an end in the AFC Championship, the fourth-year head coach spoke with reporters Tuesday morning and didn't mince words.
Sean McDermott: here's what I know from experience. If you sit here and say all we need to do is this much more to make it to the Super Bowl you're wrong. You need to start over........ #BillsMafia @WKBW pic.twitter.com/1nU8j5ZI4C— Matthew Bové (@Matt_Bove) January 26, 2021
“Here’s what I know from experience. If you sit here and say all we need to do is this much more, to make it to the Super Bowl, you’re wrong," McDermott said. "You need to start over. And yes, you carry a lot of things forward but every year you’ve got to start over."
McDermott did say several times he's proud of what his team accomplished during such an unprecedented year but made it clear that if the Bills are going to get to the Super Bowl, they need to be better.
"You have to take that growth mindset approach because to think, well, we won 15 games and lost four, well, we’re perfect. No, we’re not, and even if we were, you need to take the growth-mindset approach. That’s what you do when you’re a winner and that’s what you do when you’re hungry to be the best. That’s what we’re going to continue to do as long as I’m the head coach here, you’ve got to do that.”
