Fewell familiarity overblown

Yes Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell has a firm working knowledge on the individual talents of a good number of players on Buffalo’s roster having coached them himself during his time in Buffalo. But as far as head coach Chan Gailey is concerned, that fact is given a bit more weight by the media than is necessary.

“I think sometimes that’s a little overblown because we have to do what we do,” said Gailey. “We can’t sit there and say, ‘What if he’s thinking this, what do we do?’ You’ve got to go play your game. We’ve got enough new faces that it’s not the same group that is here now, that was here when he was here.”

Only 18 players on the current roster were with the Bills in 2009 when Fewell was interim head coach.
