Buffalo Bills General Manager Doug Whaley wants and expects the Bills to be a playoff team this year.
Buffalo Bills General Manager Doug Whaley made it clear that he not only wants the Bills’ playoff drought to end in 2014, but expects it.
During a news day conference with media outlets, Whaley made it clear what his immediate plan is for the team.
“We haven’t been in the playoffs in a long time and we owe it to the fans, our late Hall of Fame owner [Ralph Wilson, Jr.] and everybody in this business to show that we’re not the Bills anymore,” Whaley said. “We want to be a playoff team. We’re planning to be a playoff team and that’s our goal.”
The last time the Buffalo Bills played in a playoff game was January 8, 2000. Since then the Bills have had 6 different general managers, 7 different head coaches, and 8 different QBs lead the team in passing.
Whaley took over as GM on May 13, 2013 following the resignation of Buddy Nix. The Bills went 6-10 in 2013 with 3 different QBs getting at least 1 start.
