Bills fans have heard offensive coordinators come in the door and pledge a commitment to the run game. New offensive coordinator Greg Roman only points to his recent success to convince those who wonder if he’ll commit to a ground attack.
At the same time Roman is smart enough to realize that you can’t be solely reliant on a run game because if there’s a defense good enough to slow it down you’ll have problems.
“Look at my track record. The greatest predictor of future events is the past. I could stand up here and tell you that we could have been number one in the league in rushing in San Francisco every year if that was my goal. If I wanted to be number one in rushing, I could’ve done that,” Roman said. “But my goal is to win and I think you have to strike a commensurate level of balance to do so in this league."
Unless the Bills manufacture a serious upgrade at quarterback, they'll likely be a run-heavy team when compared to the rest of the league.
