Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett is a smart man, he knows who they have to give the ball to. He told reporters that they plan on giving running back C.J. Spiller the ball “until he throws up.”
“It’s real simple,” Hackett said, via The Buffalo News. “We’re going to give him the ball until he throws up. So he’s either got to tap out or throw up on the field. Let’s just put it that way.”
Hackett isn’t worried about opposing teams knowing what they plan on doing with Spiller.
“It doesn’t matter. You can say that because any team that has ever watched him should, I mean … You’ve got to stop C.J.
“The great thing is now we have some awesome weapons on the outside that if you do want to stop that guy, I mean, it doesn’t necessarily mean that we’re going to be looking to not make him a focal point. It’s that even though he is a very good player, there are some ways that they can stop him. I mean, they can put everybody down in the box. They can attack you and do all kinds of stuff. So you’re going to have to be able to attack.
“I think it’s really exciting to see what’s going on on the outside there, and the happiest guy of them all is C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson.”
I’m sure opposing teams know the Bills want to get the ball to Spiller. He is their best offensive player.
