Bills | HC will not relinquish playcalling duties

Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey will continue to handle playcalling duties despite WR Stevie Johnson lobbying for QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to have a bigger role. Gailey said Fitzpatrick has some feedback on calls to a degree, but that role is not about to expand. "Sometimes he does. Sometimes he doesn't," Gailey said. "He can go out there and change some things. Depends on the situation and the play and what we are trying to do. And the thing that we are trying to do, sometimes, is run the football - we don't want to change it to a pass. Sometimes we change out of passes to runs, sometimes we change out of runs to passes, depends on what we get." When asked why Fitzpatrick wouldn't be allowed to alter any play he chooses on the field, Gailey cited pass protection schemes and the need to monitor the workload of certain players like RB C.J. Spiller. "There is a lot more to it than just seeing what they do and just callin' a play, there is a bigger picture here ... You are setting up the next play for the next play," Gailey said. "Fitz is good, he is smart, he really is, he is extremely smart and can make adjustments on the field ... but we're doing things today, just like we did them last year and the year before that."
