We're joined here at Ralph Wilson Stadium by the head coach of the bills Chan Gailey with this team coming off the 3418 win over Jacksonville yesterday here at stadium did you just finally get dry. And it was is way down there but. As a lot blood on their sideline and it was a mile course what was your message to the team afterwards when you gather the guys in the locker room after the -- which tell. Well you know everybody was jumping up and down and do -- Knew it was going to be a win and I told us that this is what the locker room is supposed to be like. He knew you'd expect to win. You go out you dominate. This is why there's not a lot of jumping around I just warn them do it it's look at and feel and see this is a way -- post based. On a regular basis in totem as a great win all three phases. No contributed to the win. And then sold over there were a lot of good things that morbid businesslike approach right to -- -- take care of -- that's what they did yesterday I took care that this. That's exactly ride did you I mean it was a game yes you're right I think a lot of people -- gonna win. I don't like but obviously I was gonna bring up like the Tennessee game a lot of people -- gonna win that game did you get a mention a game like that in preparation for game like this and. Now. I'm one of those that doesn't bring up unpleasant. Things very often you know I mean you do -- if you make him a specific point but just as a general rule. I don't bring that the EDC for a correction. -- it -- but I don't use for motivation. Yesterday was to steal the term ground and pound all about ground and pound was -- how much of that was the game plan going in how much of it was the weather. More of it was. What was working. The fact that we had a lead. And the weather did play a part in it and -- we actually had -- no huddle planned to go yesterday when it worked on there are no huddle shotgun. The stuff ready to go. But it didn't know work out that way in all of sudden are running game's going to and we got to leave then. So he just keep pound. Yeah I just that do you did you like this was like the game you imagine this season where you get a lead. You control the game you put it away which -- running game you minimize you know fits the throwing like seventeen time to run in 46 the defense is playing strong -- shut down the run your special teams contributing. I would assume this was like in the master plan this would have been the blueprint you would have drawn up for a bills game. I'll I'll assure is -- ideally that's exactly the way you'd like for it did attack happened. But it doesn't in this legalized there's there's a lot of other good teams that do a lot of different things that don't allow you to. Go out and do exactly what you wanna do you can't go out stuff the run every week he can't go out and run it every 46 times every week has just the way the game goes sometimes. Fred Fred Jackson let's talk about him -- because it's we -- this the way the season hasn't pulled TJ it looks so good. Yeah that people are saying give -- get the ball more -- -- you know you can you can forget that Fred Jackson obviously still a very effective football player you think you felt slider and I'll be the given the extra. Motivation but all the talk about Spiller this season. You know everybody's a competitor. And everybody's got a little bit of an ego. Today is day all you know is that all do well -- all wanna compete competitors wanna compete. You guys for the first in your ratings everybody's completes OK. But how you handle it if your. To me Fred yet he wants to compete but he understands. The situation the same thing was reversed last year would he was playing so well only at CJ sitting there. And that we warm currently reply in Fred a lot more -- playing so AJ so. He understands he handles it with class he handles it as a team player. That's what she got to understand about this weird we're so blessed to have these two run him back in the character in a class at to have. On top of their amazing ability and I keep town embody. We got two great backs not everybody has full we have. Do you is still had time just failure read some by the way which will ask about could you got three touchdowns it where she did Spiller is really not in the red zone packages that. Pass protection thing. Now it's not I think yesterday it just happened a couple times and then. -- we may have had a couple times we wanted trade and if for some pass protection situations yes. But. Thank couple times it just happened as -- it's not a plan to take him out don't get it don't don't say that okay. Mean you have to talk to him about that like one time I don't remember which struggle was but you were here in the red zone. Hubble and the stadium and she gives out on the field in fact he ends up walking away from the played down by your 45 yard line -- hands on -- -- Stared at the game comic ever talked them and make sure he keeps his. Kept talking as they don't don't get down and you wanna go out there that type. And now. I don't think so I think both of those guys are. Competitors you can't play they've they don't want almost applies and neither one of them is getting to play and it isn't nearly as much as I won't. But they they've gotten out of character and class to -- the right way and we're going to try to make sure they both. Give you get Carrey's in NRA -- to do their job. The red zone production was better yesterday three touchdowns and five trips war. Which -- better. But ran the ball better helped get the ball first immortal one person that doesn't hurt yeah. That you know there's a lot of little things that go into it just like they're a lot of little things are going and it. Not making it -- down so. That play they got it -- for someone on what was a deep pass to TJ Graham and you know fans that may be. Want to see more from TJ injured O'Donnell puts him in that spot where you happy with what the way that he played. Yeah I think so I mean it wasn't a big day for pass so. It he made the play he was supposed to make. And I wasn't proud of him for that now and and he proved that a round up people and kitchen didn't tough weather and so that's a plus we -- -- and they dead on down the line and I guess I wonder. You know you hit that big play we we've we've seen TJ. Show off his speed and he's the trap that specifically for that reason do you feel like hitting that that one time granted you've dialed up if you try to throw those tropical but hitting it. Is that as effective as actually attempting it five times one completion is as good as five attempts don't you don't say like. By getting it now it's on it's on tape it's it's a successful downfield pass that might make and I respect -- more. -- probably so yeah I mean -- agency just throw it not completed it. -- People say hey let them troll but. You know what you hit a couple of like dead that all of a sudden. Draws attention and they get more a little bit I want nervous which is what -- on the you mentioned after the game that was inaudible yeah. What is what Brian C year can you talk about that about why he audible or was it something you guys thought you might see at some point they'll allow that plated are bulls are set up on particular things. If you see this do this if you see that do that we saw the look that we wanted to throw the posters of breezes Tehran and I'll tackle. -- Gailey was here on Buffalo Bills football -- if before forgiveness to the injuries cuts to long list. Anything -- -- -- happiness I don't know any thing news that I didn't know yesterday and I didn't know much yesterday because they were going to have to look at on this morning and so. I don't know if it's one game. Three weeks I don't know what it is almost to these guys. I would say is probably the shortest term is going to be Leodis McKelvin. And I don't know which ones longest. Okay seed yet it knows this guys seem the most serious some though I don't know. But unfortunately any of the other three could be the longest. The talk a little bit about some of the young guys that got to play -- you know before dilemma but -- -- Stephon Gilmore evenly as a young guy but he's been starting. Talk about his play yesterday because it it I don't know how often he was matched up on -- a team -- covered most of the day -- and basically took him out of the game. Yeah a deity covered most of the day they got some situations where they were a black -- men and Stephon couldn't get to indict. We've been doing that a little bit more more is is matching -- Stephon home. Or whoever we think they're they're normal one guy he is in he is continued to respond. To that challenge. Matte of fact he won't see it. And that's great that's what you wanna see in a -- Can you talk about his development -- because -- went through some struggles that any rookie quarterback would the first month of the season got beat up some moves and all that now it seems like. He's been pretty consistent and -- not just coverage sticking with guys but breaking passes opera knocking balls out things like that. Via a death first game oh we go to the jets and and everybody -- everybody in the secondary soft. And we came out talked about how lose the coverage was in as that. Since that game everything's has started to tighten up. More more and him in particular he'd become more aggressive. -- he's become I gather has more confidence that is getting his hands on more balls that sees things better. -- he is. He's becoming. Very good players time those -- Me feel like he is that the term is shut down corner of ever uses polygamy they got it anytime you have a matchup. Yeah gonna say OK you got their best guy have a nice game yes and I'm not sure I ever agree with that dad called a shutdown corner because what happens is -- guy. When you say that you expect got to be a 100% and there's no such thing is under percent corner. I mean they're bison grievous trichet managed eighty -- for AT&T so there's no such thing -- as one of those guys. And there's guys that are really good. And you can get that matchup and hopefully end up -- your advantage the majority of the time. Do you do you envision him as more of corner of a dozen -- so we match up against well that's the most productive receiver but maybe the biggest guy because teams in this league seemed -- be moving more towards ever -- got one big physical target he seems like a quarter of the can handle that type of that at that I've won yet he can't he can't in -- you have to make a decision remained. It's I got a big gather don't throw it to let's put him on the little gather additional children you know I mean. You just got to decide it and make a decision each week -- the smartest thing today. When asked about one thing we saw that we hadn't seen -- that it was 2010 Ryan Lindell you know contends that sort of the wonder. Kenny kick from fifty way to get a question obviously he can yet he hit it hit in the rain from about fifty yards so. What was the decision there to go for yet last week you told us philosophically don't really believe in it but you had a chance here. Well we're up to touch dancers. Three minutes to go in the third quarter now you can go about three scorers. Instead of two scores at our defense is playing extremely well the -- now the reward is worth the risk. Whereas other times the reward was it worth the risk. So. It's a decision achievement -- -- good for Ryan to bigamy -- knowledge in game I'll probably sell you know. I think he has confidence and -- he knows I've got confidence in film that. Everybody in the outside of the building had made such a big deal about it that. Probably the it. Clearly it used him up Jack the -- got a touchback on the ensuing kickoff. Well I think he did. Eight AD -- he was he was excited about button. Hey it's it's amazing that we thought the wind was actually blown -- -- the way Nikkei two touch that -- Yeah that directed. Looked like I mean it seemed like the wind was gonna be a big factor and yet when I looked at the flags on the goal posts in the tunnel and they were led most of the day and they were more than a little bit at the score well what was that like governor. If blood -- bad as you would think. The way it was smaller bill is more important than the then a win was the -- had a little bit of an effect but not as big an effect as you would thing. He started Ron Brooks yesterday. Yeah I got on how much you got a chance to break down a look back it seemed like I mean they're deathly some -- have been nice play on the first drive of the game got beat a couple times tipped a couple penalties. Any thoughts and on on how -- thought he feared yesterday got a lot of snaps on. He got a lot of snaps and he was not supposed to play that much that Leodis ended up with a tight backing couldn't complain about Anselm. I think he did okay and a guy like you said he got some penalties. The thing is I don't think he had a ton of mental mistakes. Which is what you worry about what they got that playing for the first time in the middle of the season. That was -- now are the first eight weeks of the season isn't gonna have a total mental mistakes. I'm not sure he did Leon have goal to get to begin to make sure but it. They keys I think he did all right for the first time out is good. Do you see for him on a week by week basis -- because I thought in the pre season for a rookie again -- really get enemy he seemed to be able to be in the right spot and together. Some good hand slash ball skills from the pre season games. He does. He. If you just say hey go cover that -- He has got the skill set to do that but kinda -- went. All the little things that you have to do to play corner as far as when they get into stacks and now when they get into -- sets. And when they sell one robber with a safety coming down now you got help and saddened. Now one time you got help outside. All those little things. Key to where you ease your thank you mr. play. And you have to have all that you -- is not just as easy as say an OK okay you got healed right now everybody out to just do you. They get to the stacks and they get takes and they get by choosing get aches and also a new day ahead. So it's not as simple as that but. The skill set is there. Just -- the confidence to be able to do it down in and down out within the system is what he -- Can you talk a little bit about Mario Williams obviously had a big play yesterday and continues piling up the Sachs now I guess talk about. Why he it has been so effective of late and what's that trickle down impact on the rest of the defense the way he's playing. Well thank what is happened is if you look at it may be sits there -- our defense is continued to get better and better and better. Will we had to all -- hands of footballer early in the season the second half -- -- in the second half of San Cisco. And bases -- there is our game to -- we've been continuing to get better and better defensively. And I think it's both -- Mario has been playing better. I think it's the close. We got tighter coverage and their secondary. Think -- to what everybody's playing more consistent you know I am every bit of that. The only other guys don't ask you about -- that we were told by young guys a moment ago and forgot to beat up easily. Just talk a little bit about. I would assume that's like one of those moments as a coach. You'll love because here's -- with everything he's been through with the injuries the heart ailment he finally gets on the field he gets a regular season touching breaks to big kick return what was that like you guys. It was great and yeah I didn't think about it for a he Helm until toward the end of the game and I was excited for us. Though when it happens because it set up feel though I think right there before have so. That was bake and so it. The little thing. Of all he's had to fight through to get to where he was in there and have that opt in did it take advantage of it. I was excited for him at the end of the game when I thought about it. How is he coming along and practice as a receiver a lot better he's make him they make in really good strides as a receiver. And he's going to have to go apply now. This in two years is not east. They got really missed two years of practicing and playing in and do and the things that he needed to do. And felt really about halfway through this season is he started to come around and started to get back into the form that we -- all might be there is a rookie to you the last -- is -- before games you definitely see some time for him in their receiving picture I think he's got a chance here they'll only get that but I think he's got a team. -- congratulations to get on the wind and I appreciate the visit here tomorrow night aren't you beg guys to care now.
