Impressions from Buffalo
Had the opportunity to go to Buffalo for the game and stayed over at the team hotel. A few things stood out. First, the team seemed incredibly focused. From the time they arrived on Saturday up to game time they were serious and professional. Rex led them into the lobby and you sure can tell who is in charge of this team. Lots of snazzy dressers, btw! The team looked like pros, almost everyone in suits. I was very impressed with Cromartie. He and an asst coach were in the corner of the lobby for over an hour before dinner watching video of the Bills receivers and they were really intense. He played great yesterday and I noticed how upset he was after someone caught a passm on him near the end of the game. He shut them down yesterday. Had dinner at the steakhouse at the hotel and the linebackers were at a nearby table. It was good to see them hanging together. They all seemed really tight. From my perspective, the team seemed professional, disciplined, and focused. I know this is so contrary to the media view of the team but that's a bunch of crap, anyway. I came away with a really, really good feeling about these guys. Oh, and btw, got the chance to meet D'Bricks parents and you couldn't meet nicer people. He is certainly a reflection of his folks.
