Bills head coach Chan Gailey has been asked a lot about the perceived lack of a deep passing game in Buffalo’s offense. In his weekly appearance on Bills flagship WGR Sportsradio 550 Gailey defended their approach in the passing game.
Gailey was asked if his play calling choices are hampered to the point where he’s calling a game different because they can’t throw downfield.
“No, not at all,” said Gailey. ”Do you know how often Houston threw the ball down the field yesterday? Two times. The same as us. The key is consistency and completing and putting the ball in the end zone when you get down there. That’s the key to the whole thing. It’s not how many times you throw the ball down the field. It’s whether or not you’re completing the balls you’re throwing and then can you run after catch sometimes and make plays that way. Very few people throw it down the field bombs away like Daryle Lamonica. The just doesn’t happen anymore.”
The Bills currently rank 27th in yards per pass play (10.6).
