QB Lewis-no more playing catch-up

Quarterback Thad Lewis wound up getting five starts for the Bills in 2013.  Which was pretty amazing, considering he wasn’t even on the roster until late August.

Lewis had to go through a crash course in Buffalo’s offense on the fly to get ready to start in mid-October against the Bengals.

This year, it’s a totally different story. Lewis wrapped up the first week of OTAs Friday with confidence in his command of the offense, something he could not say last season.

“Every day I had to study from the ground up,” he said after an OTA workout this week. “The other guys were moving on, because they didn’t have time to teach me. It was a hard grind.”

Lewis has been getting backup quarterback reps during the first three workouts of the spring OTAs.  And after spending the last month in the QB meeting room, he says he now feels confident in the Bills offense and what he has to take out onto the practice field.

“It’s been great. Getting an opportunity to know what you’re doing and going ahead and just running plays—being able to correct the things you see on film.  “Last year I was kind of iffy on that situation there. It’s been good. It’s been an easy transition, I wish I would have had this before I had to start that game in week six last year.”
