With the release of the Bills training camp schedule, head coach Rex Ryan also went out to visit the camp site at St. John Fisher College in Pittsford Thursday. Not surprisingly, Ryan was encouraged by the facilities, the layout of the campus and the people.
“First rate for training camp,” Ryan said. “It starts with the fields because our greatest asset is our players and their health. Fields are great, the way the dorms are set up, cafeteria, meetings rooms and the people I’ve met here have been over the top. So I’m excited about it.”
Ryan said the big difference for him with Bills training camp is the number of night practices, but there will be changes for players who were on the roster under the previous coaching staff.
“I think with us it’s going to be more reps than what they’ve done the last year or so,” he said. “We’re going to continue to two spot (run two units simultaneously). I think we’ll have more night practices than I’ve had in the past, which will be good for the fans out here. And for whatever reason the night practice picks up the intensity a little bit and that’s always good.”
While with the Jets they would usually have just one per training camp.
Ryan also said they’ll make more use of the two grass fields than the previous coaching staff.
“We want to use the grass as much as possible. You want to keep the guys’ legs fresh and make sure the fields are top rate,” said Ryan. “Not that we have a problem with the turf field, it’s great too and we’ll use it too.”
