’09 preseason a lesson learned?

Bills QB Trent Edwards is hoping that the struggles in the 2009 preseason for the offense is a lesson learned for those players that experienced it.

For those that don’t remember the Bills first team offense did not have a possession that resulted in an offensive touchdown for their entire five game preseason. After that humbling experience, Edwards wants them to get off to a much better start under Chan Gailey Friday night.

“I feel like last year’s preseason was horrible. I’d say that right now, that we didn’t do what we needed to do. We weren’t in rhythm,” said Edwards. “I think last year we weren’t expecting what we went through and that’s in the past. I think some guys that are here from last year have learned from that and don’t want to go through what we went through and a lot of that had to do with turning the ball over and not converting on third downs. So we’ve got to be good at that and we’ve got to protect the football. We’ve got to learn from our mistakes and just execute soundly.”

A handful of other players that experienced the lack of success last year echoed Edwards’ sentiments. Hopefully the offense can show signs of life despite the fact that they’ll be without three starters on the offensive line.
