Bills | Chan Gailey knows future uncertain

Mon, 24 Dec 2012 08:48:21 -0800

Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey said Monday, Dec. 24, he understands his job will be evaluated once the season is over. Gailey is 15-32 in three seasons, and he's had double-digit losses in each of his three years. "I think everything will be evaluated at the end of the year," Gailey said. "Things have not gone in the win column like I wanted them to or like any of us wanted them to. I know we let the fans down. They believed in us. I believe we are headed in the right direction but I don't have anything to show for that."

Bills | Chan Gailey defends effort in Week 15

Mon, 17 Dec 2012 08:10:16 -0800

Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey defended his team's effort in their 50-17 loss in Week 15, a game in which the Bills fell behind 31-7 in the second quarter and never recovered. "I think the effort was there," Gailey said. "I never question our guys' character or effort. I question our execution, but I don't question our effort. When you play bad it looks like you're not playing hard. But I don't think (effort) is ever the question." Gailey said the team wasn't underprepared for the Seattle Seahawks and particularly their read-option offense.

Bills | Hoping for snow in December

Sat, 08 Dec 2012 07:25:46 -0800

Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey said the team has practiced outside once in each of the last two weeks, in hopes of what will be some cold and snowy December home games. The Bills, who play the St. Louis Rams in Week 14, are hoping to take advantage of teams not used to the colder temperatures. In Week 13 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Buffalo ran the football 46 times for 232 yards. "Especially in that running back room we feel like we can spark this offense and get us going. Hopefully we can do that, especially coming up in the month of December," RB Fred Jackson said. "It's going to be nasty out like that. We can take a lot of pressure off everybody on offense if we can go out and perform well."

Buffalo Bills players say they remain behind head coach Chan Gailey. "I love Chan," DT Spencer Johnson said. "I love Chan. If we go 9-7, everybody's talking something totally different. We're still going to keep the faith and keep playing hard and see how it goes." RB Fred Jackson added, "I think Coach Gailey's got a great mind offensively. I think he's doing some tremendous things for us. He's utilizing his skill players. We just have to be consistent, as those players." General manager Buddy Nix is on record as saying he has no desire to make a head-coaching change after the season despite the 4-7 record.

Bills | HC will not relinquish playcalling duties

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."
