The Bills fell to 4-7 on Sunday in Indianapolis thanks largely to an offense that never mustered much of a threat to the Colts.
It’s not a new story in Buffalo. The Bills have scored zero or one offensive touchdown in four of their last seven games and their fourth quarter touchdown on Sunday ended a more than seven quarter drought on that front. Wide receiver Stevie Johnson thinks that one of the problems with the offense is play calling and he’d like to see Chan Gailey share the duties in the future.
Who should be the other party? Johnson wants to kick it old school and let quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick handle more things by himself.
“How I see it, I think we need to let our quarterback call these plays. He’s out there on the field. He sees the adjustments that need to be done. I think we just need to let him make adjustments on the go. I think that’s the way we can move the ball better,” Johnson said, via Tim Graham of the Buffalo News. “He did it a little bit in the game, and we moved the ball. … He was hitting C.J. [Spiller], getting his run plays, doing the pass plays, and I just think we should do it more often.”
Johsnon credited Fitzpatrick for calling audibles to more aggressive plays, including a 63-yard completion to Johnson that set up a field goal in the second quarter. Gailey had already spoken to the media by the time Johnson spoke, so we’ll have to wait for his next media session to hear his thoughts on Johnson’s suggestion.
