Mark Gaughan, of the Buffalo News, reports Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Steve Fairchild said the offense is working hard and is getting better. "You've got to be precise. You have to time the [quarterback's] drop up with routes and protection. It's just something that we were making strides on, and I thought we were a little farther along than we are right now. We're getting better. As long as we just put our nose down and work hard, it'll work itself out," Fairchild said.

Chris Brown, of BuffaloBills.com, reports Buffalo Bills tight ends coach Charlie Coiner said blocking is the top priority for the Bills' group of tight ends. Coiner used the St. Louis Rams' offense as an example, as Bills offensive coordinator Steve Fairchild previously served as the Rams' offensive coordinator before joining Buffalo. "I expect the tight ends to be tough," said Coiner. "I look at the St. Louis offense, an offense that has been very successful, and I watched what the tight ends did there. The first thing I see is that they are very versatile, meaning they are good in the run game and pass protection."

Greg Pogue, of the Daily News Journal, recently interviewed Buffalo Bills QB Kelly Holcomb. He asked Holcomb to comment offensive style of offensive coordinator Steve Fairchild and Holcomb replied: "He's aggressive. I think he is going to be a little bit more run-oriented than Mike Martz was. But we'll have to see. Time will tell. You have to be able to run the ball in Buffalo when the weather gets bad. I think he is more prone to do that. But I also think he is very aggressive. In practice so far, he sure has been. This offense, you can make some plays. He gets the ball down the field. He's not scared to take shots. He wants you to force balls into some holes that sometimes in other years you might not think. But he knows what he is doing. He has been in this offense for a while. And I really enjoy it. I like it so far."

Chris Brown, of BuffaloBills.com, reports the Buffalo Bills offensive coaching staff plans on putting the offense through more situational football over the next few organized team activities.

We'll do a lot of red zone, our two-minute offense, some of our goal line and short yardage stuff when we put in extra tight ends or backs. We'll be a little more specific about what we're doing and why we're doing it. I'd like to get a lot of that done in the next three weeks."

We're a long way from where we want to be, but we're on our way."
