Bills head coach Chan Gailey was asked when he expects his offense to be fully functional, and Gailey didn’t pull any punches.
“Yeah, there’s a timetable,” said Gailey. “Game one. That’s what it’s supposed to be. You better be hitting on all cylinders when you get to game one. That’s always been my expectation. When they turn on the clock and start keeping score for real, you better be ready.”
Buffalo’s opener is Sept. 12 against Miami at Ralph Wilson Stadium and with all the questions that need to be answered with respect to the offensive side of the ball and who might be playing where, it’s not surprising at all that Gailey pointed to the regular season as his deadline. At the same time he expressed confidence in their offensive scheme and how he believes it will help his players succeed.
“You better have confidence in this business,” he said. “If you don’t have confidence in this business you’re going to lose in a hurry. We have confidence that our system will put guys in position to make plays. You’ve still got to go make them, but I think we’re going to have guys that have some talent. We’ve got to make sure that they get the opportunity to go be special on the field and that’s what we’re working on. You try to have confidence without being cocky.”
