Eric Wood has been with the Bills since 2009, so he knows from chaos.
And the latest upheaval — firing offensive coordinator Greg Roman and replacing him with running backs coach Anthony Lynn after two weeks — isn’t it.
“It just doesn’t feel chaotic around here,” Wood said, via Jay Skurski of the Buffalo News. “We made a switch at OC. We promoted from within. … We’re kind of just moving on, business as usual, and we’ve got an important game this week. . . .
“There doesn’t need to be a big rah-rah speech. We’re all very familiar with Anthony. It wasn’t anything crazy this morning. We all have a lot of respect for him as a coach.”
Wood’s welcome-to-the-NFL moment in 2009 came when coach Dick Jauron fired offensive coordinator Turk Schonert two weeks before the start of the regular season. And there have been plenty of other changes there since, so Wood has a different perspective than others.
And heading into this week’s game with the Cardinals, Wood was relishing the uncertainty.
“Any specifics, I’m going to kind of just leave blank,” Wood said of a potential Lynn offense. “It’s almost a little competitive advantage having a little mystery heading into Sunday.
As someone who has been around Buffalo for a while, a little mystery is something Wood is used to.
