It sounds like the Buffalo Bills may end up putting both C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson on the field at the same time, either in the back field together, or one of them split out wide. At least that’s the way head coach Chan Gailey is hinting at.
“You don’t want to do too much when they’re both in there because if you lose one of them then you’re without a big part of your package,” said Gailey. “So you’re trying to construct enough to create problems for the defense, but not so much that you’re relying totally on having both of them at the same time. That’s a fine line that you walk creating offenses to be able to take advantage of both good players.”
Gailey made it clear that he’s going to do whatever it takes to win.
“I can promise you this, we will not make everybody happy,” said Gailey. “That will not happen this year. The only thing that will make everybody happy is winning. That’s what the goal is, to come up with plans that incorporate everybody’s abilities that allow us to win. Other than that I can’t predict what’s going to happen as far as percentages for their touches.”
