This is the time of the year when players start to speak out about what great contenders they are, and how their team is headed to the Super Bowl or the playoffs and all that.
Seems that Bills RB C.J. Spiller is now on that list as well, as SI reports that the Bills back is calling for this team, this season – to be a major contender for the AFC.
The Bills haven’t been to the playoffs since 1999, but in Buffalo no one seems to care about that because at least one player thinks they are might be on the brink of something special. Running back C.J. Spiller certainly think his team can be back to the days of the early 1990?s when the Bills were regularly competing (and losing) in the Super Bowl. “We split with New England. We had the Giants on the ropes. We are close to being a Super Bowl team,” Spiller said to NFL Sirius XM Radio. “We have to protect the ball.” Buffalo was only +1 in turnover margin last season and with free-agent signing Mario Williams, their defensive line will look to improve on the 29 times they sacked the quarterback, which ranked next to last in the AFC.
