Safeties won’t be play callers

Posted by Chris Brown on August 21, 2012 – 11:49 am

During the Minnesota preseason game, the Bills defensive staff experimented with having the safeties call the play in the huddle and organize alignments and assignments pre-snap. Usually it’s the linebackers that handle those duties. After reviewing how things went defensively, head coach Chan Gailey said the experiment wasn’t effective.

“We didn’t like that very much I don’t think,” said Gailey. “We’re going to go back to the linebackers. The safeties did a good job of calling it, but they’ve just got too far to go after they call it. We’re going to let the linebackers do it.”
