Found January 30, 2012 on Inside the Bills:
Bills QBs coach David Lee was largely credited with introducing the Wildcat scheme to the NFL back in 2008 when he was quarterbacks coach with the Miami Dolphins. Now with the Bills, Lee sees an even more dangerous ball handling weapon in Brad Smith than he ever had in Miami. “I’m really glad he’s here,” said Lee of Smith. ”I think the biggest thing is in Miami we ran it with Ronnie Brown, who wasn’t a really good passer at all. Brad is just such a good passer and I remember watching him with the Jets. So he could keep the opposing coverage back meaning they can’t run 10 of them all down on the line of scrimmage, which is something we ran into in Miami when they realized that Brown wasn’t a threat to throw the football. “Brad gives us more dimensions. We have some things that we have in mind and that’s yet to be finalized as to what we’ll do. But there are some things that we’ve done that may suit Brad Smith.”

2011 Buffalo Bills season in review

How did the Buffalo Bills wind up 6-10? At the midway point of 2011 they were 5-2. They would only win one more game, and lose seven in a row. Not good at all. This one perplexes me a bit, as we have seen some questionable decisions be made by the management but they seem to have talent. Why it never all comes together for them who can say? Of course I can try to say, but that is...

In depth: Buffalo Bills

Ryan Fitzpatrick got off to a hot start in 2011 and, in following his lead, so did the Buffalo Bills. Seven games in, the Bills sat at 5-2 and looked to be a real playoff contender.

Or will Buffalo and the team’s fans struggle to climb...

The "I hate my life" review of the Bills 2011 season
