The Bills have a new coach, a new system and a host of new players, but that doesn't mean they are going to change the focal point of their offense.
As training camp begins at St. John Fisher College, the Bills coaches don't plan to go against the grain when it comes to their offense. They know the best chance for success is to put the ball in the hands of LeSean McCoy.
Friday, head coach Sean McDermott and the team continued to work to establish their identity. As far as the identity of the offense is concerned, that will be up to offensive coordinator Rick Dennison.
He won a Super Bowl as the offensive coordinator in Denver just two years ago. Now that he's in Buffalo, he'll rely on LeSean McCoy to carry much of the offensive load with the Bills. And from the way Dennison talks, LeSean McCoy seems like a great fit for this offense.
"Not quite like a couple guys I've had before, but he's explosive through the hole and makes quick decisions," Dennison told reporters. "And that's what we're looking for, someone to get into the secondary that's hard tackle."
McCoy agrees with Dennison's assessment. "I'm making the same runs, same cuts -- I feel good, I feel explosive. That's my game: being explosive and quick."
So, how much will change from a team that led the league in rushing last season? As Dennison says it's all about production on the field.
"I'm not saying it's my offense -- it's the Bills offense for 2017 and we're going to do what we can to move the ball," Dennison explains. "All I know is we're going to be better than we were when we walked on the field and those guys -- that's what they expect and that's what we expect from them."
