Being a resident of Western New York, I have many friends who are Buffalo Bills fans. I have watched their frustration pile up as the the Bills dropped to 4-7 after a sluggish 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts Sunday. Blame is all over the place, but success always starts and ends from the top down. Head Coach Chan Gailey, who also doubles as the team’s play-caller, has been less than impressive this season as an offensive coordinator, and now even players on the team are starting to take notice. The Bills best receiver, the lovable Stevie Johnson, talked about letting QB Ryan Fitzpatrick call plays instead of Gailey: “How I see it, I think we need to let our quarterback call these plays. He’s out there on the field. He sees the adjustments that need to be done. I think we just need to let him make adjustments on the go. I think that’s the way we can move the ball better. He did it a little bit in the game, and we moved the ball. He was hitting C.J. (Spiller), getting his run plays, doing the pass plays, and I just think we should do it more often.” I could not agree with Johnson more. Although Fitzpatrick has been inconsistent, the Bills as a team have yet to put together a game this season where the offense, defense, and special teams play well. Part of the blame for the team’s dismal play could fall on Fitzpatrick, but then again he’s been put in tough situations trying to win shootouts when the defense plays terribly. Chan Gailey has made me scratch my head a number of times this season at the plays he calls, and he is definitely not using explosive running back C.J. Spiller enough. Given that the Bills’ playoff hopes for this season are pretty much non-existent, I wouldn’t be surprised if Gailey is ran out of town and the team begins a complete overhaul of the coaching staff in the off-season. That’s where success starts, and if the coaches aren’t putting the players in positions to succeed…they won’t.
