Bills new tight ends coach Pete Metzelaars literally hit the ground running on Tuesday. Here’s a look at some of the first few things on his to-do list knowing he hasn’t been back on a day-to-day basis since 1994.
“The first thing is I’m trying to figure out where to go in the building and not get lost and how to get in the building (laughs),” he said. ”Next is to find out how (the coaching staff) calls stuff, what do they call it. Everybody runs the same kind of plays in the league it’s just what is your terminology, what is your verbiage for it.
“So just start learning that kind of stuff and then sit down and start watching film. Watch the guys play, how they play, what are their strengths, what are their weaknesses, what do they do well, what don’t they do well, and let’s correct the things that they don’t do well and improve upon them and lets build upon what they do well.”
Metzelaars is also very interested to get in the ear of prospective free agent Scott Chandler in the hopes of convincing him that he can help him take another step in his career at the tight end position.
“I will try to talk to him or text him or however they communicate these days (laughs), but try to get in touch with all the tight ends that I’m going to be working with,” said Metzelaars. ”Hopefully we can get him back. I know the team would like to have him come back. He had a very good year last year, and try to build upon that. I would like to get some players to break any and all records that I may still be holding around here because we’ll find somebody better than me.”
