Offense has a few new wrinkles

Each year every NFL club tweaks their offensive scheme. Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick tried to quantify how much things will change in Buffalo’s attack in 2012.

“That’s something they always spend a lot of time during the offseason reviewing what happened last year,” Fitzpatrick said. “Really figuring out the things that went well, why they went well and the things that didn’t go well and the reasons for that. It’s hard to put a percentage on it. There’s obviously a lot of carryover and a lot of similarities to what we’ve been doing since he’s (Chan Gailey) been here. In knowing me as a player and knowing our personnel and what we think we have, we’re tweaking some stuff just to fit guys better and really take advantage of everybody’s talent. There’s definitely going to be a little bit of a new look. We’re doing a lot of the same stuff and just hoping to do a lot of the same stuff better than we did last year.”

So the changes appear to be minor, but Fitzpatrick considers one of Gailey’s greatest strengths to be the ability to maximize the strengths of his personnel with his scheme, sometimes down to player by player.
