Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott ended his press conference Wednesday after only nine minutes taking questions from reporters. During the Q&A, McDermott was asked about the offense’s struggles, offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, and was asked to compare second-year quarterback Josh Allen to veteran Tyrod Taylor, who the Bills traded away 18 months ago.
“Move the ball and score points. If we don’t do that, I’m frustrated. Simply put,” said McDermott before leaving the stage. McDermott typically takes questions for 12-15 minutes, so today’s nine-minute session was considerably shorter.

He wanted specifics.

Specifically discussing Allen, he was asked if he was “satisfied” with the young player’s development.
“I don’t think that’s a word we use here,” said McDermott. “That’s not a winning type mindset.”
He also said the team doesn’t force-feed any players when referring to Devin Singletary not receiving touches, and the run-pass ratio.
“It comes down to winning games,” said McDermott when asked about the ratio. “We want to win games. If we have to throw it 100 times to win that game, if we have to crawl over the goal line to win that game...we’ll do whatever it takes. It’s Brian’s job to do that.”
The Bills are currently 25th in points per game in the NFL, averaging 19.3. They are the only team with a winning record in the bottom-12 of that stat.
