The Bills offense hasn’t always looked great in training camp, but part of that due to the fact that it’s new for just about everyone on that side of the ball and part of it is due to Roman purposely making life difficult for the unit with a bad play call here and there.
In an effort to force the offense to find solutions or push through adversity Roman might give the offense a crummy play call on purpose.
“If you’re always getting the perfect defense for the perfect play and you’re always getting great angles and you’re always getting favorable numbers, I think that’s what you want to do on game day,” said Roman. “But leading up to game day, you want to put yourself in tough positions and learn from those why this particular technique is not applicable and is not going to work or this play needs to be changed or, you know, I made a horrible call here, you know, help me out, here’s why. All learning opportunities, and that’s how you get better. Training camp’s a grind and in order to get better I think you’ve got to put yourself through all those situations.”
So even though it hasn’t always looked pretty, Roman believes the progress of the offense is on track.
“I’m happy with where we’re at right now,” he said. “I thought we started off a little slow. I thought the first couple days, our passing game was a little out of sync. But around the fourth day, we started to get going and guys are starting to really get it. We’ve been throwing a lot at them and I think we’re right on schedule. I think it’s all about where we go from this point forward.”
