Buffalo Bills’ defensive end Chris Kelsay said Monday that after reviewing the tape on Monday he noticed certain defensive players weren’t playing hard (Credit: AP Photo) To say the Buffalo Bills defense has been awful this year is like saying the Sun will come up tomorrow. With one of the worst defenses in the NFL, it is not surprising to say some of the Bills’ defensive players are not playing hard enough. What is surprising, is when one of the team’s own players comes out to say teammates aren’t playing hard enough. That is exactly what defensive end Chris Kelsay did Monday after watching tape of Sunday’s loss against the Tennessee Titans. Michael David Smith from ProFootballTalk.com explains what Kelsay said on Monday “You watch the film and not everybody was playing hard every snap and that’s unacceptable,” Kelsay said. Kelsay said he thinks it may be on players like him to personally get in the faces of teammates who aren’t giving their all. “We might have to grab guys by the shirt collar and tell them to get to moving,” Kelsay said. “It’s nothing personal, but we’re relying on you. Myself included. If I’m not doing my job I expect Kyle [Williams] to grab me by the neck and tell me to get going. That’s what it’s going to take. We’ve got a lot of young guys. We’re going to get everybody on the same page.” Kelsay didn’t name any names of teammates who aren’t trying, although he did suggest that Mario Williams isn’t going 100 percent because he’s hurt. “I’d take Mario Williams at full health and full speed probably over anybody else in the league,” Kelsay said. “At the same time I’d take Sean Ferguson, who we cut, over a guy that’s playing 50 percent, and I think our coaches would too. The playmakers have to make plays and the way you do that is giving all out effort every play.” Ultimately, Kelsay says, there’s just no way he can tolerate being part of a defense that plays the way Buffalo’s defense is playing. “It’s inexcusable,” Kelsay said. “It’s a blessing to be in this league and to go out there and lay an egg there are no excuses for it.” Follow us on Twitter @DownandDistance Down and Distance Executive Editor - Brett Krummenacker @BKrumm_SKThe post Bills’ Chris Kelsay calls out teammates who aren’t playing hard appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
