How Gailey’s getting Lee up to speed

There’s always an intense period of study when a player is given the task of learning a new offensive system, but coaches go through it just as often knowing how transient their profession can be. So just how is Bills new QBs coach David Lee getting up to speed on Chan Gailey’s system having never worked with him before?

Simply put he’s meeting with Buffalo’s head coach on a daily basis.

“We meet every day just about going over certain aspects of it and once he sits in the breakdown meetings, in which we go through all 1,100 plays (from last season he’ll have it down),” said Gailey. “We go through every play and evaluate every play and every player here for the next month and a half or so. By the time we get to the end of that he’ll know it as well as the rest of us.”

Lee knows he’ll have to be able to coach it on the field by the time OTAs roll around in May, but he believes it’s more than enough time for him to master it.

“I’ve been studying and I’ve actually tested myself, run off some tests,” Lee told “I’m just that kind of learner. I’ve got to study it, pound it and grind it in there. That’s what I’m doing right now and Chan has been wonderful in teaching me along the way in how we read this and how we read that. I’ve got to hear a word and know a concept and where all three guys are going. That takes some time on my part with some hard-headed study.”
