Whitner: Gailey routinely assigned blame

Thumb
---Former Bills safety Donte Whitner voiced his displeasure once again with his former team and coach Chan Gailey.

Whitner, pictured above, said playing for San Francisco's Jim Harbaugh is a welcome change after playing for Gailey last year. Gailey, he said, routinely assigned blame to the Bills during their 4-12 season.

Jets coach Rex Ryan, Whitner said, "will never throw his players under the bus, and he puts all the pressure on himself. Coach Harbaugh does the same thing."

"A lot of coaches, when they don't want the pressure on them, don't want the hands pointed at them or the media to turn on them, they put things out to the media that really shouldn't be out there. 'Oh, this guy should have made this play or he should have done this.' That stuff never works, and players really understand that and locker rooms understand that."

Back in November, Whitner said in an interview with Pro Football Talk that the Bills didn't show they wanted to win. Whitner played from 2006-10 with the Bills, who made him a first-round pick in the '06 draft.
