Inside The Bills

Finally play calling continuity

Buffalo’s offense just like any other in the NFL is always going to have some new wrinkles added to it from one season to the next. But up until Chan Gailey and offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins arrived, there’s been a lot more change than any offense would like. This season marks the first time since the 2000 campaign that the Bills enter the third straight year with the same offensive coordinator. Here’s the history.

2003 Kevin Gilbride
2004 Tom Clements
2005 Mike Mularkey
2006 Steve Fairchild
2007 Steve Fairchild
2008 Turk Schonert
2009 Alex Van Pelt
2010 Chan Gailey/Curtis Modkins

“Chan and I are in a good place right now in terms of my understanding of what he wants to get done and his understanding of my strengths,” said Ryan Fitzpatrick. “But this offense, the beauty of it is it is constantly evolving with new pieces we are adding and new players and different things that we want to get done. We are always finding new and different ways to make plays better or to change plays. Football is never a game that you can master. You just continue to get better, to react to different defenses and that is the fun of the game for me.”
