Running back LeSean McCoy excited to play in Brian Daboll’s offense

Buffalo Bills

The Bills have a new offensive coordinator in Brian Daboll. So who knows what we’ll see on Sunday against the Ravens.

His playbook will look different from what we’ve seen in the past. However, one thing will remain the same, LeSean McCoy will carry the load and that’s nothing new.

“That’s always been my thing since about my third year. I’ve always been the focal guy on offense, so I’m used to that”, McCoy said. 

The 10-year-veteran didn’t play much this preseason and was dealing with a hip and groin injury but has looked healthy this week at practice. 

McCoy said, “I feel fine. It feels good to get back out here with my teammates, running around a little bit. I had a couple days on the field of getting that full football shape of the plays. I was okay, and I’ll be fine in time for game time on Sunday. I’ve just got to get myself mentally ready”.

LeSean referred to new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll as a genius and believes the new game plan will get him the ball in different and creative ways. 

“It’s another playbook, put us in different formations to make the defense have to account for that. With all those things combined, man, I think it helps out. The big playmakers that people think we need. Even last year, we had ups and downs, but as an offense, we found ways to not turn the ball over, run the ball well, and make plays when we needed to”, McCoy said.

There are plenty of concerns about the offensive line’s ability to protect the quarterback but they should still be able to run the ball effectively this season and McCoy is THE reason why.  

Bills tackle John Mills says, “It’s great to have 25 back in the backfield.”
