I don't know Jake at all, but I want to be there for him and be ready to play if anything happens."

It's Jake's time. Jake's going to be our guy. We made that decision last year after training camp. Ryan has been in this situation before … He's going to compete with (Locker) and I think he'll help him a lot throughout the week. It will be another great mentor for him. And we feel he can win if he has to play. That's how we felt with Matt Hasselbeck also."

Tue, 22 Jan 2013 10:27:45 -0800
Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson wants to see the team bring in another quarterback to give QB Ryan Fitzpatrick some serious competition for the starting job.

Let it happen like that." However, Johnson is still confident the team can win with Fitzpatrick at quarterback. Fitzpatrick was ranked 32nd out of 33 quarterbacks this year with a 27.5 completion percentage on passes that traveled at least 20 yards.

Buffalo Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is unlikely to return to the team in 2013. Fitzpatrick has received $21 million of the six-year, $62 million contract he signed in October 2011, and it will not cost the Bills any more to cut him than to keep him on the team.

If Fitzpatrick is on the roster, his cap number for 2013 will be $10.45 million. Fitzpatrick's base salaries going forward are $4.25 million in 2013, $4.35 million in 2014, $7.2 million in 2015, $8.75 million in 2016 and $9.45 million in 2017.

Nix said previously that the team would draft another quarterback in the first round of next year's draft. "That's not necessarily true. I mean, we're going to always stay with the integrity of the (draft) board. But we're going to try to find a quarterback. If one's there, and he's rated at the right spot, we're going to take him whenever that is."

Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey said he believes QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is the future for the team at quarterback. "I think we've always said we're looking to develop a quarterback for the future, but I don't think it's the near future," said Gailey. "I think we're talking about Fitz being the guy for us, and as we continue to get better, I think he's going to be the guy. I see us being able to be very productive as an offense with Fitz at quarterback. I've always said that, and I believe that."
Mon, 26 Nov 2012 06:23:11 -0800
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."
Mon, 26 Nov 2012 05:45:54 -0800
The Buffalo Bills have scored zero or one offensive touchdown in four of their last seven games, and WR Stevie Johnson believes an answer could be allowing QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to call more plays. Johsnon credited Fitzpatrick for calling audibles to more aggressive plays in Week 12. "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," Johnson said. "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."

Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson second-guessed why a more experienced wide receiver wasn't targeted on a Week 10 play that ended with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing an interception into the end zone to seal a 37-31 loss. Johnson also came to WR T.J. Graham's defense, saying the rookie receiver shouldn't be faulted for running the wrong route because he had never attempted it in practice. "I don't think it was the wrong play. But just the whole thing leading up to it," Johnson said, noting that he, WR Donald Jones and TE Scott Chandler were more familiar at running the route. "We had people in positions where maybe they shouldn't have been. So who knows what would've happened if it was Donald, me or Scott there. So it's no blame on T.J. at all, because he's never run that route in practice or in a game."
Tue, 13 Nov 2012 12:44:59 -0800
For the second straight week, Buffalo Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick endorsed the notion of the team giving RB C.J. Spiller more touches. "I think you can never give him enough touches," said Fitzpatrick. "We can all see what he can do with the football. When he and Fred are playing you look at it collectively. We try to get both of them a big number of touches. We stayed with the run game in the second half even though we were behind."
