Bills center Eric Wood said this week that the change in offensive coordinators from Greg Roman to Anthony Lynn has not been chaotic for the team and that it will be “business as usual” for the players heading into this week’s game with the Cardinals.
Business as usual doesn’t necessarily sound like the best thing for a team that felt the need to make a change at coordinator two weeks into the season and it doesn’t sound like things are going to be exactly the same after Lynn’s promotion. Running back LeSean McCoy said Roman was an “intelligent coach,” but that things are going to be less complex with Lynn at the helm.
“There won’t be a drastic change, but there will be a difference,” McCoy said, via the Buffalo News. “The plays will be simplified a lot. I think the gameplan we have this week is pretty good. Not as much thinking. It’s more about just going out there to play.”
McCoy said the team would go into games with 80-90 potential plays when Roman was the coordinator and that number has been pared down to 30-40 plays under Lynn. Whatever the number of plays, they’ll only be successful if the Bills are getting the ball into the right hands. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor says Lynn has “great vision” about how to do that and we’ll all get a chance to see it play out on Sunday.
