Confidence In Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick Wasn’t A Draft Smoke Screen

All the confidence Bills head coach Chan Gailey and general manager Buddy Nix put behind Ryan Fitzpatrick this offseason was no smoke screen, as they did not draft a quarterback, even with ample opportunities to do so.

They could have taken Blaine Gabbert at No. 3, Andy Dalton or Colin Kaepernick at No. 34 or Ricky Stanzi on Saturday, but instead focused on defense. “Fitz’s abilities, his leadership and the way he played last year gave us the freedom to be able to do what we needed to do with our football team,” Gailey said.

    Fitz isn’t spectacular, but if a solid offensive line can protect him all game long. week in and week out, he can produce and he can win. Let’s face it-how much could Tom Brady do without that offensive line in New England? “Not much!” is the resounding answer. So the Bills added Hairston to the offensive line, who may not be a factor this year, but who knows? I’m not sold on Pears, so we’ll have to wait and see. Fitz can find targets…we need receivers to run good routes and recognize when the blitz comes, so they can shorten their routes and get to the area the blitzing player(s) has(have) vacated. We didn’t do enough of that last year…can’t figure that out, because that’s basic knowledge for receivers.
