The Buffalo Bills want to party like it's 1999.
That was the last year the Bills made the playoffs.
It's the longest stretch of not making the postseason in the NFL, but brash new coach Rex Ryan thinks that's going to change this year.
"I think we will," Ryan said. "Yep, I think we will."
Ryan made no guarantees, though.
"I can guarantee you one thing: Teams aren't going to want to play us, I can tell you that much," Ryan said. "You'll see.
"Hey, come watch practice and you'll probably come away with the same feeling I have. We're loaded on defense and we're loaded at the skill positions. So we'll see."
The Bills went 9-7 last season and had the fourth-ranked defense and have traded for running back LeSean McCoy and signed tight end Charles Clay and wide receiver Percy Harvin.
Where the Bills lack a proven player is at quarterback, which Ryan admitted isn't "ideal."
"We have enough talent there so that, when it's all said and done, we'll be fine," he said.
