Five games in to the regular season, the win-less Buffalo Bills are licking their wounds, and preparing in earnest for the rest of the season. There are new plays to be added to the offense, new schemes to be introduced to the defense, and adjustments made to the special teams.
Veteran linebacker Reggie Torbor called for a players only meeting on Monday, so that he could share his observations from his unique perspective. He was a member of the Super Bowl New York Giants team in 2008 that upset the New England Patriots 17-14. Torbor watched the Giants lose seven of their final eight games during his tenure so he knows what it is like to see teams turn their fortunes around.
The good news is that the majority of defensive starters that have been missing games due to injuries should all be healthy when the Bills have to strap their helmets back on in week seven. The bad news is that they will be strapping them on against Baltimore Ravens, one of the most physical teams in the NFL. Since the Bills have not been winning at the line of scrimmage, this is shaping up as another rough example of how the Bills need to change their makeup as the rebuilding effort continues.
