ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Corey Graham was in the midst of discussing why its unfair to pin all the blame on the Bills secondary for giving up big plays, when the safety was informed how many completions of 50 yards or longer Buffalo has given up this season.Graham was stunned to learn its already happened seven times in nine games.Really? Thats terrible, the 10th-year player said, sitting at his locker in wide-eyed disbelief on Wednesday. Thats crazy.Its also unacceptable, Graham said, because defending deep passes shouldnt be difficult.This league is pretty simple as a defensive back: Keep the ball in front of you, he said. Its just guys have to focus on their technique, and when the balls in the air, youve got to make the play.The Bills havent made nearly enough plays, which is why coach Rex Ryan is seriously considering making changes at cornerback as Buffalo (4-5) comes out of its bye week off to play at Cincinnati (3-5-1) on Sunday.Offseason free-agent addition Corey White is competing with Ronald Darby to take over the starting spot opposite Stephon Gilmore. And rookie sixth-round draft pick Kevon Seymour is in line to replace Nickell Robey-Coleman for the No. 3 spot.Im tired of mistakes, Ryan said, foregoing what has traditionally been his player-friendly approach. Im not here to make friends. Im here to win.The seven completions of over 50 yards matches the number the Bills gave up in their two previous seasons combined. This years total already surpasses any season total Buffalos had during its 16-season playoff drought.Weve got to start making plays and making teams pay for throwing jump balls up, Ryan said. Im tired of seeing it. And Im sure our fans are as well. Were playing pretty good defense, but thats killing us.Its a concern that began in Buffalos season-opening 13-7 loss at Baltimore, when Joe Flacco hit Mike Wallace for a 66-yard touchdown pass. And the trend resurfaced over the past four games during which the Bills have given up five 50-plus-yard catches while failing to manage an interception.The final straw came in a 31-25 loss at Seattle on Nov. 7, when Ryan benched Darby shortly after the second-year starter gave up a 50-yard pass to Doug Baldwin on the Seahawks fifth play from scrimmage.Ryan said hes not particularly singling out Darby because theres plenty of blame to go around. And yet, he placed the onus on Darby to regain the teams confidence in him.Its just not his confidence, its about our confidence, Ryan said. We need Darby to play the way hes capable of playing. And if theres a reason hes not ... weve got to ask ourselves why its happening.Gilmores play has been inconsistent , too. He was burned several times in a 37-31 loss to the Jets in Week 2. And a miscommunication led to Chris Hogan beating Gilmore for a 53-yard TD catch in New Englands 41-25 win last month.The secondary has played without a key component since hard-hitting safety Aaron Williams sustained a season-ending neck injury at Miami on Oct. 23 -- a 28-25 loss, which prompted Buffalos three-game skid.And yet, this is not what Ryan was expecting from a position group that was the defenses strength a year ago, when Buffalos front seven had difficulty generating pass rush.This year, the struggles have been reversed. Buffalo has an NFL-leading 30 sacks, but ranks tied for 18th with just six interceptions -- four coming against Arizona.Tackle Kyle Williams pins the blame on the entire defense.Were all in this together, Williams said. We need to do better.
