For some it’s the biggest question on any list concerning the Bills and their fortunes in 2009. In a QB driven league it’s no surprise that most feel the play of Trent Edwards will largely determine just how successful Buffalo can be this season. Now entering year three, Edwards is expected to be more consistent, more effective and ultimately more productive when it comes to scoring.
The coaching staff expects it, which is why they’ve put a lot more responsibility on Edwards’ shoulders entering the ’09 campaign. He will have full control of changing plays at the line of scrimmage and at times will have to execute those pre-snap decisions in hurry up mode when the offense goes no huddle.
“He’s got more on his plate, absolutely,” said head coach Dick Jauron.
With the no huddle approach expected to be a greater part of Buffalo’s attack this season, Edwards does admit it will be challenging to get everyone organized while deciphering defensive looks and deciding whether an audible is necessary in an up tempo mode.
