Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott gave his thoughts on the actions of star wide receiver Stefon Diggs following the team’s heartbreaking playoff loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
As previously noted, Diggs reportedly stormed out of the Bills’ locker room soon after their loss to Cincy. Teammate Duke Johnson was initially able to prevent Diggs from leaving the stadium, but the star wide receiver wound up leaving soon after.
McDermott spoke on Diggs’ quick exit in his post-game press conference. A video of his comments are available below, courtesy of FOX Sports’ Henry McKenna.
“That’s what makes him good, is what you saw…It hurts and I wouldn’t want a guy that doesn’t hurt,” the 48-year-old head coach said.
The Bills entered this season as the Super Bowl favorites, and they certainly lived up to the regular season expectations. But for the second straight year, Buffalo was eliminated in the AFC Divisional Round, and now they’ll have to watch the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs vie for the conference crown instead.
Diggs had another excellent season for the Bills, recording 108 receptions for 1,429 yards and 11 touchdowns, earning a third straight Pro Bowl nod.
