Roman: Offense still making up for lost time

Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman will never make excuses for the performance of his offense, but he isn’t afraid to state the facts as they are. And as far as he’s concerned his offense is still playing catch up with where they wanted to be at this point of the season in terms of performance.

One of the main reasons they’re behind with their rhythm and consistency with execution is due to the rash of injuries they’ve suffered. And the injured players have been pretty integral pieces to Buffalo’s offensive plans. From LeSean McCoy to Sammy Watkins to Percy Harvin to Karlos Williams to Seantrel Henderson they’ve all missed time for one injury or another. And when you’re trying to implement a new system having missing parts only lengthens the time needed to get it all working right.

“I think everything with us is a bit of work in progress. Guys in and out of the lineup. This guy’s in, this guy’s out. He missed training camp, etc. It’s been…I think we’re behind,” said Roman. “To characterize it any other way would be me sitting up here and blowing smoke. We’ve got to every day understand how important each day is that we have these guys together at practice and maximize those days to make up really for lost time.

“And I like where it’s going. I really like where it’s going. I can see some things on the practice field where things are looking like they should look. Quite frankly throughout the first four, five, six weeks and a period of training camp where we started getting guys back a little bit. You know it didn’t quite look like it was supposed to look yet. So it’s getting there.”
