Want Damning Evidence?Look within The Division

Bill Walsh once said that you should scheme offense and draft defense. Rex seems to do it the other way around, but the point of this rant is that if you want to say Schotty isn't the problem, look at the Bills. With almost no drafted talent at skill positions, they are tearing up the league offensively. Chan Gailey knows what he's doing scheming offense. He doesn't have an offensive line, yet he spreads out his collection of ridiculously no name receivers,and relies on his quarterback to get rid of the ball quickly making good decisions.If you switched Ryan Fitzpatrick out of this offense and put him on some other team, he doesn't shine nearly as bright.Fred Jackson , who was average for five previous years is a hard running star in this set up. We have high round draft picks,and other teams  former stars all over the field on offense, and well,  we are at best average:For quite a few years in a row. I have read the rants about the poor utilization of Keller,  and McKnight and I can't disagree.Without a pass rush, and with smallish slow safeties, we were 8th in the league in sacks and a formidable defense for the last 2 years. That is because Rex knows what he is doing defensively. If it isn't the  offensive coordinator's fault, then who? The fact that they have periodically shown the ability to perform and at a high level  suggests that it isn't the talent on the field.We are not  just inconsistent. We are archaic-predictable-and damn him for having me say this--not that much fun to watch. I do not want to include the Patriots in the argument because even if I feel we have more talent at the skill positions , their trigger man is so special, it skews the comparison . Once again. it isn't the talent-It's how you use it.
