Bills Offense Simpler Under Anthony Lynn

Anthony Lynn takes over as Bills OC

ORCHARD PARK, NY - Rex Ryan is usually focused on the defense but since the firing of former offensive coordinator, Greg Roman, Ryan is now dedicating more to the offense than he normally does. 

"I attended meetings on Monday and today on offense as well as obviously being involved with defense," Rex Ryan said. 

Former running backs coach, Anthony Lynn, is now the Bills' new offensive coordinator and it seems like the scheme will be easier for players. 

"Just understand that we’ll have—it may be a simpler offense maybe from a player’s perspective, but there’s going to be plenty of plays---it’s not that we’re going to be short one end, we’re not expanding all the way down to hurt ourselves, that’s not true either. It’ll still be a multiple system," Ryan explained. 

"There won't be a drastic change but there will be a difference. The plays will be simplified a lot," Bills running back LeSean McCoy said. 

With Lynn taking over, another change is where he'll call the plays. Roman called the plays from the sideline but Lynn will be in the booth. 

"I’ve been in offenses where it came from the sideline and from upstairs so it’s definitely a little different from his perspective, being able to see things from upstairs is a different view point. I think it will definitely speed up the process and push the tempo," Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor explained. 

Taylor also said he'll get the play calls straight from Lynn. 

With Lynn's promotion, assistant quarterbacks coach, Jason Vrable, will now be in charge of the Bills' running backs.
