Bills center Eric Wood fears big changes coming

By Mark Gaughan

Buffalo Bills center Eric Wood is worried about how much change the team's slide to 5-10 is going to cause.

"It stinks that we're not winning, and a lot of people are gonna lose their jobs because of it," Wood said after the team’s dismal, 24-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

"That's the reality of this league," Wood said. "When you don't win, you're not gonna play with the same group year to year. We've got a talented team, and we play hard. We just don't always play well. It's really frustrating."

Wood was referring to players losing their jobs. Asked if he worried about facing another coaching overall with the firing of head coach Chan Gailey, Wood replied: "Yeah."

"I definitely feel like we've taken a step forward this year in our play," Wood said. "But when you lose more games or you lose the same amount of games, then it's tough to say that. I mean, you can turn on the film, and I think we're better than last year or the year before. But when you don't win games, you can't justify it.

"I'd hate to start over, and that's not what I want. But when you lose this many games, I understand change happens, and it's going to happen at some position. That's just the way the league works. I hope for zero change. I appreciate the guys we have, and I think we can win with this group."
