This week is the first week the Buffalo Bills new coaching staff has had to sit down with veteran players. Three months after the staff was assembled, the players are finally on hand for the first week of the team’s Voluntary Offseason Conditioning program.
And it’s the first time Bills veterans have had to get a clue on what kind of offense new coordinator Nathaniel Hackett might have in mind.
Based on what they’ve seen the first few days, Bills players are bracing for a fast-paced offensive attack, with a heavy dose of no-huddle.
Center Eric Wood says he expects the tempo to be accelerated based on the type of offense Hackett ran at Syracuse University.
“Ive watched them (Syracuse) beat the dog out of Louisville, and they looked really good then,” Wood said this week. “I saw them in the bowl game a little bit, too, and they looked good.”
“That’s kind of the way the league is going–New England runs a lot of up-tempo, Peyton’s done it forever. I’m sure we won’t be exclusively no huddle, but we’re going to try to keep people on their heels. I think that will put guys in more successful situations.”
