Hyde: McDermott is a big reason we are all healthy

By WGR 550 SportsRadio

The Buffalo Bills are going to the playoffs after clinching a spot against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football.

Bills safety Micah Hyde is no stranger to the postseason. Last season was the only year of Hyde's career in which he hasn't gone to the playoffs.

Hyde joined Schopp and the Bulldog as part of his weekly Buffalo Bills Football Monday appearance to chat about the win over the Steelers, the upcoming matchup with the New England Patriots, and the season as a whole.

Here's some of the best from Hyde's time with the guys:


Hyde on the team being healthy all season:

"Guys have their routines, hot tubs, massages, cold tubs. Coach later in the week and late in the year does a good job helping us stay healthy. Sean [McDermott] brought in a culture where he's like 'hey get your rehab, get in the training room'. How healthy we are starts with McDermott. As a professional you should be in the training room, getting your body right for the next game. It shouldn't be looked at as 'oh, you're soft.'"


Hyde on staying optimistic when down in games:

"Our mindset has been different. Ups and downs, we feel like we're going to win the game. Even down a field goal, we felt like we were going to win."


Hyde on a different routine for Sunday Night Football:

"It was a long day, not playing on Sunday night in a while. I woke up at the regular time, ate breakfast, watched film. Took a nap." 

Hyde on fans showing up to the airport:

"What's amazing is it was a work day the next day for people. Players on other teams acknowledge Bills Mafia. It's safe to say we've got the best fans in the NFL right now."
