McDermott: The Super Bowl, not the playoffs, is the ultimate goal

The Bills head coach joined Schopp and the Bulldog after Friday's practice at training camp

July 27, 2018 - 4:47 pm

The first two practices are in the books for the Buffalo Bills at training camp this year at St. John Fisher College.

Through the first couple of practices, the offense has been the subject of conversation among the fans. In particular, the quarterbacks have been heavily discussed with Josh Allen, A.J. McCarron, and Nathan Peterman all spending time with the first-team offense.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott joined Mike Schopp and the Bulldog on WGR following Friday's practice.

Here is some of what he had to say:

On Josh Allen potentially being the starter:
"I'm not opposed to him winning the job at all... It's an open competition. Josh is playing with the threes right now, some time with the ones."

On the value of making the playoffs:
"We made the playoffs last year, that's not the ultimate goal. The ultimate goal is to win the Super Bowl. We have to continue to sharpen the sword to get to that goal."

On getting the players to buy in:
"There is a buy in that's important. For a new coach, new teacher, new whatever. Winning early was big, starting off 5-2. At the end of the day, you hope the buy in comes."

On the leadership of his team:
"There's some value in playoff experience. The core guys we did bring back have that playoff experience. We can take something out of that."
