At 0-5, the Buffalo Bills are the only winless team in the AFC. Combine that with rumors that the Bills could be transplanted to another city, and you get a sense of the morale surrounding the organization.
But Bills coach Chan Gailey told Baltimore reporters during his conference call Wednesday that motivation is not an issue.
"First of all, professionals should play the game as hard as they can play it each week," he said. "They should prepare each week as professionals. It's more fun when you win, but the preparation and the work ethic and the motivation to go out and do your best should be at the top level because these are the top people in the league."
Defensive end Dwan Edwards, who joined Buffalo after leaving the Ravens in the offseason, said he was confident that the team's fortunes would change.
"I think, just as a team, we have to find a way to win some games and get some confidence and get some stuff rolling," Edwards said. "I know we have good players and we've got good coaches. Now it's just all on us to put it together on a Sunday to where we're all playing well. As a player and as a team, that's all we can do every week, try and get better. I know things will get turned around for us."
