The Buffalo Bills have checked in at St. John Fisher College for the start of training camp. The first air horn will blare Thursday morning.
Defensive tackle Kyle Williams summed up why the next month will be critical to Buffalo's highly anticipated 2012 campaign. Pondering the postseason is fun, but grinding in Pittsford is what matters.
"I think the process is the most important thing that we have as a team or as a football player," Williams said. "If you get caught up looking at the end game, you miss what builds a team. We are going to have chances to bond, practice and play together. But we are going to be here for four weeks.
"We are going out in different defenses every day. The offense is going to put in new plays. We are going to be put in different positions by the coaches -- down and distance, red zone, whatever they may be. We have to focus in on our job that day and work on it the best way that we can. And the next day something is going to be different and then when we get to the games, it's the same old thing.
"I think guys know that when you get to camp you have to take it one day at a time and then when you get in the season it's one game at a time. So we have a long way to go. We're at our starting point, but I think we have a lot of good guys who know how to work and are not scared of it."
