Chan Gailey has been earning a lot of respect from Buffalo Bills fans because of stark differences between him and his predecessor, Dick Jauron. That's all well and good for the time being, but everyone involved knows that doesn't matter; results do. To his credit, Gailey has been demanding very specific results early in his first year as Bills head coach.

In an interesting Sunday night practice note from BuffaloBills.com's Chris Brown, Gailey and his staff got after receiver Steve Johnson for a lack of attention to detail.

"I kind of got chewed out a little bit for doing something wrong," said Johnson. "It's just work that needs to be done, be crisper on everything and (Coach Gailey) wants everything to look the same. So I'm going to try to do that work on my routes and make everything still look the same."

Brown notes: "Gailey's offense is known to have plays that appear similar to defenses at the start, and he depends on receivers to run routes identically whether it's pass or run to more effectively disguise their intentions."

After practice, Gailey reflected his point of view while discussing Johnson's summertime development.

"He's done a good job. The guy has really got some talent. He just has to pay attention to details, and if he'll continue to do that, he's got a chance to be a very good receiver before it's over with. He's a really good one-on-one player, and that's what you have to be in this league."
