Ron Jaworski selects Bills to be most improved

By Tim Graham

ESPN analysts Ron Jaworski, Bill Polian and Herm Edwards recently discussed their picks for the NFL's most improved team in 2012.

Polian went with the Seattle Seahawks. Then Edwards backed the Kansas City Chiefs.

Jaworski went last, and by the end of the video, Edwards was twirling his hand above his head and saying "Circling the wagons, the Buffalo Bills," and Polian was barking out "Let's go, Buffalo!"

Jaworski prefaced his pick with references to being from Lackawanna and Polian's time as Bills general manager.

"I've got a team that's very close to my heart and Bill Polian's heart: the Buffalo Bills," Jaworski said. "You've got to look back at last season. They were devastated by injuries. Almost two-thirds of their starters were knocked out of their starting position by injuries.

"They were playing good, solid, winning football in the first half of the season. Then the Buffalo Bills go out and make a commitment to bring in quality players when they bring in Mario Williams. That makes a statement to the entire organizations when you can get a guy like Mario to help that defense, bring in Dave Wannstedt to now coordinate that defense ...

"I'll tell you, I think the Buffalo Bills made a quantum leap this offseason. Watch the Bills this year."
