Stevie will be Stevie, but he doesn't sound very happy with Chan and his playcalling.
Wide receiver Stevie Johnson said after the game that QB Ryan Fitzpatrick should be calling the plays in certain situations for Buffalo's offense. Coach Chan Gailey is Buffalo's signal-caller on the sidelines.
“How I see it, I think we need to let our quarterback call these plays [in certain situations],” Johnson said. “He's out there on the field, he sees the adjustments, sees what needs to be done, and I think we should just let him make the adjustments on the go. I think that's when we can move the ball better. He did it a little bit in the game and we moved the ball.”
“[In the] fourth quarter, [Fitzpatrick] was pushing it and it felt like we were in a groove. He was hitting C.J. [Spiller], getting his run plays, doing the pass plays and I just think we should do that more often.”
Johnson said that Fitzpatrick has less freedom this year compared to other years when it comes to play-calling.
“We're capable of doing it,” he said. “We did it a few years ago. This year it's been the only year when it's been controlled from the booth or the sideline or whatever, but we've got the right guy that can control the offense and I think we should take advantage of it.”
