Buffalo Bills fans are typically skeptical when comes to offensive coaches as you have to go back to the days of former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly when the last time they had an elite offensive attack. Well for the first time in a long time Bills fans have hope in Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll and quarterback Josh Allen.
Daboll isn’t a stranger to success as he was on the New England Patriots coaching staff for all five of their Super Bowl wins, and was the offensive coordinator for the 2017 NCAA Champion Alabama Crimson Tide. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Daboll knows how to develop an offense.
“You need to try to do what you need to do each week to win,” Daboll said according to WGR 550. “Whether it’s a zone, a gap scheme, you have to have a variety in everything you do. Whether it’s gap schemes sometimes this week, zone schemes sometimes this week, a mix of both, you have to have, I’d say, an expansive playbook because you have to dictate tempo offensively, but there’s also a part of scheming and seeing what the defense gives you and trying to attack those weaknesses.”
That is a good thing to hear as Buffalo’s weather can sometimes minimize passing attacks. Also, the team lost two starters on the offensive line, so this will keep defenders offbalanced and give a young offensive line an edge while developing. However, things will be much different for Allen.
Allen won’t be rushed into things as they want the quarterback to settle in first.
“Been doing this a long time with rookies at all different positions,” Daboll said. “It’s such a learning experience for all the rookies, whether it’s a quarterback, running back, tight end. Not only are they coming to a new system and having to adapt and learn an offensive system, they have to learn the people in the building, they have to find a place to live, they have so many different things they have to learn.”
In the end, the results aren’t going to show right away, so be patient as they will eventually.
