Buffalo Bills' Chan Gailey Wants More From O-Line

The Buffalo Bills' first-team offense has been sloppy through two pre-season games, and if you ask Chan Gailey - which reporters did after practice on Wednesday - part of the blame lies with an offensive line that isn't satisfied with its own progress. Here's how the exchange went down.

Reporter: "Talking to Andy Levitre, he said right now the offensive line as a unit isn't where he thinks it should be at this stage of the pre-season. Do you agree with that?"

Gailey: "Yes, I agree with that."

Reporter: "What do you think needs to (change)?"

Gailey: "They've got to play together. We've got to have guys go out there and play together and communicate. That's probably - no, it's not probably, it is - the offensive line is the biggest area that has to have continuity and communication. They've got to have that. If they don't have that, you don't give yourself very much of a chance to win."

Reporter: "Do you think that's your biggest concern right now on the offensive side of the ball?"

Gailey: "No. That's one of them. There's several things that we've got to work on. Our timing in our passing game, the little things like that. Running the football. There's some things that we've got to work on. We've got plenty to work on. We don't need to cancel any practices."

Thus far in pre-season play, Buffalo's top offense has allowed one sack, two running plays have been stuffed for negative yardage, and three flags have been thrown on linemen. (Actually, just one lineman: Cordy Glenn.) With the Bills doing fairly extensive game planning for this Saturday's penultimate pre-season game against Pittsburgh, however, it's fair to expect the Bills to be cleaner in all phases of the game offensively - including along the offensive line.
