Head coach Rex Ryan is on board with WR coach Sanjay Lal’s plan to develop Percy Harvin as a bona fide receiver on the outside. Harvin never had enough time to invest in being an outside threat because he was spending too much practice time elsewhere on the field, be it in the slot or the offensive backfield or on kick return with his previous clubs.
“He’s a playmaker and I think Percy now he’s just scratching the surface of what kind of outside receiver he can be,” said Ryan. “I’m excited to see how he can elevate his game at that position. He’s extremely talented.”
“Sometimes Percy Harvin may get 10 balls thrown to him. Maybe the next week he gets three, but that’s okay because we just want to win,” said Ryan. “It could mean your number is dialed up a lot more this week than it was the last week. That’s just part of it. We know we have a lot of playmakers and we plan to get the ball in all of their hands.”
This is all well and good, but the Bills still have serious quarterback issues and an offensive coordinator (Greg Roman) who never had an offense finish better than 23rd in total passing yards in four seasons in San Francisco.
