Watkins rips teammates after missing postseason

Former Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins had an impressive game with five catches for 111 yards and two touchdowns (48 and 20 yards) in a 35-25 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
However, Watkins is not satisfied with his team after the organization has missed the playoffs for an amazing 16th straight season.
"We need to call people out. If I'm doing something wrong, call me out," Watkins said via Buffalo News. "If the line is doing something wrong or messing up, call them out. If the defense is doing something wrong, the defensive line, the secondary, call it out. Because, at the end of the day, we're doing it to win, not to get on somebody and make them feel bad. We're grown men. This is our job. We get paid millions and hundreds of thousands of dollars. Forget the money. You've got to go out there each week and play for the guy next to you."
Watkins thinks some of his teammates are too comfortable in their football roles with the Bills and need to look in the mirror at themselves.
"Once we get to that point and realize that you could get fired the next day -- and make it known," Watkins said. "Hey, this is your job. If you're not going to do your job, cut him. It needs to be a business. And I think once we get to that, we need some nasty coaches. If they're not doing their job, get them out of here. If I'm not doing my job, step to me and get me out of here... I think everybody needs to look at themselves in the mirror -- forget the coaches. It's not the coaches' team. It's the players' team. And we've got to take over as players."
Watkins has 44 receptions for 827 yards and nine touchdowns this season.
Down by 18? Launch it 48 yards and hope that Sammy Watkins makes a circus catch. *SAMMY WATKINS MAKES CIRCUS CATCH* https://t.co/JVYZYPnPhj— NFL (@NFL) December 20, 2015
