It wasn’t long after the Bills drafted C.J. Spiller that the wheels started to turn in head coach Chan Gailey’s head with respect to how he can make use of the tailback’s dynamic talents.
In an exclusive interview with Buffalobills.com, Gailey shed some light on his intentions for Spiller in his offense for the first time since the back was drafted.
“We can use him in a lot of different spots,” said Gailey. “We can split him out and try to create a mismatch out wide. You can use him in the backfield as a running back. You can use two running backs in the backfield at the same time and now they don’t know which way you’re going to go. It just creates a lot of matchup problems in our opinion with defenses. I know in talking to George Edwards, our defensive coordinator, he said every time you have a guy like that you better know where he is on the field, you better know what his assignment is and what he does from that spot. So we feel we have a chance to create some very good matchups in our favor with a guy like C.J.”
