Bills Coach Gregg Williams Previews Dallas [11:00 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '"There are certain things and certain plays on both sides of the ball of all three phases that we are doing well.

We have to analyze that and see why that is so technique wise, defensive front wise, and scheme wise. What was causing some of those breakdowns? We have to emphasize the runs that did do well.

Saban disagrees. "Thatís one thing I didnít think people have been able to understand. In a personís own life, there are certain adjustments you think you have to make.

I tried to see if I could put a very difficult atmosphere, tied in with what I thought was a very congenial situation at home, and keep pressure off my family. That was impossible to do. Youngsters who happen to be children of head coaches in professional sports donít have it easy. I just couldnít fathom how difficult it was to make changes in that type of an atmosphere.
