The Bills offense is starting to encounter some high class problems. A few of their talented offensive players are barely touching the ball.
Free agent pickup Brad Smith only has nine touches in four weeks. (And he’s only had the chance to return two kicks.)
The Bills tried to get Smith more involved as a wideout last week to modest results. He has converted four first downs in seven runs this year, but the team hasn’t used him much in the Wildcat.
“When you’ve got some good receivers and you’ve got a tight end who has done some good things and you’ve got a running back playing well right now, you can’t do everything you’d like to do,” coach Chan Gailey said via the Sporting News.
Last year’s first round pick C.J. Spiller has also become an afterthought with only 17 offensive touches.
“There’s only one football,” Gailey said. “We’ve got some ideas and thoughts [on how to get Spiller involved], but it just hasn’t presented itself at this time the way we’d like to do
It’s a great sign for Buffalo that they have more offensive options than they know what to do with. If you thought Philly’s defense was struggling before, we suspect the pitchforks will be out for Eagles coordinator Juan Castillo after Sunday’s game.
