Inside The Bills

Lee sees double threat in Smith

Posted by Chris Brown on January 30, 2012 – 2:48 pm

Bills QBs coach David Lee was largely credited with introducing the Wildcat scheme to the NFL back in 2008 when he was quarterbacks coach with the Miami Dolphins. Now with the Bills, Lee sees an even more dangerous ball handling weapon in Brad Smith than he ever had in Miami in an exclusive one-on-one interview with Buffalobills.com.

“I’m really glad he’s here,” said Lee of Smith. “I think the biggest thing is in Miami we ran it with Ronnie Brown, who wasn’t a really good passer at all. Brad is just such a good passer and I remember watching him with the Jets. So he could keep the opposing coverage back meaning they can’t run 10 of them all down on the line of scrimmage, which is something we ran into in Miami when they realized that Brown wasn’t a threat to throw the football.

“Brad gives us more dimensions. We have some things that we have in mind and that’s yet to be finalized as to what we’ll do. But there are some things that we’ve done that may suit Brad Smith.”
