    Steve Fairchild...Any good?

    Bills fan here! Apparently the Buffalo Bills just hired your old offensive coordinator, Steve Fairchild and i was curious if he is any good. I remember him when he was here as a RB coach and he did a good job with that. But I'm not sure how he is as an OC. Is he a balanced offense guy? Pass happy? Smash mouth guy? Thanks for replying!

    Mike

    To be honest alot he did not have a huge input to theoffense when Martz was in charge and when martz was out and he was running the offense Vitt had to get on him about running the ball more,so he may not be as balanced as the bills offense needs with losman or Holcomb at the helm.

    I wish him luck though the bills have alot of offensive weapons(Moulds,Willis,Evans)so he could be successfull.

    p.s Welcome to the Clan,since we gave you Fairchild the least the bills could do is give us London Fletcher back,Please.

    That's what I was worried about. We don't need a pass happy coordinator here, not with Losman and Holcomb, along with McGahee. Oh no. Maybe Jauron can rein him in a bit? I hope. Either way, thanks for him. And I think thanks for your DL coach (Kollar), but I don't know if he's any good myself. I heard he's like our old DL coach and loves to scream and go nuts at his players. That could be good for motivation, but not if they tune him out.

    And as for Fletcher, That's one former Rams player that I would NEVER want to give back. He has been a stud for us ever since we got him. If only he got more respect though. He keeps getting screwed out of the Pro Bowl.

    Thats funny.

    As far as Fairchild we will soon find out how go or bad he is, only time will tell. As it stands now Fairchild will be calling plays and Martz maybe watching plays.

    Kollar screams alot but he has not done anything with Damione Lewis or Jimmy Kennedy two first rounders at least he seems to have done a good job with Pickett.

    I agree about the Fletcher thing though he is always one of the leaders in tackle and never makes the pro bowl

    How about we toss in Nate Clements too, so we can get Orlando Pace. We need offensive linemen badly.

    So in other words, he's an unknown? You aren't sure what kind of coordinator he is, because he never really had a chance?

    Didn't he develop two very solid DE's that are now headed to the Super Bowl? Grant Wistrom and Bryce Fisher....

    Yeah that sums it up, he might take Martz system and learn from Mikes mistakes and run the ball more, protect the ball as far as turn over goes.

    I don't like to talk about Fisher. He was good here, but never got the chance to develop and shine. We could have used him.

    Maybe Kollar can take a little credit with Fisher's development, but Wistrom has played at the same level before, during, and after Kollar.

    I think Kollar has actually hurt Kennedy's development. Kennedy himself said that Kollar's approach was "something he had to adjust to" in his rookie year. I think there were just two personalities that couldn't mesh.
