Defensive play-calling experiment over for Bills

The Buffalo Bills tried something a bit a different against the Minnesota Vikings on Friday night.

If you noticed throughout the game, the Bills had their free safeties making the defensive play calls in the huddle. It was something head coach Chan Gailey and defensive coordinator Dave Wannstedt wanted to try to let Jairus Byrd, Da'Norris Searcy and Nick Saenz make the calls throughout the contest.

After the game Gailey was asked how he believed the experiment went, to which he remarked he had to confer with Wannstedt first. Upon further review, it's safe to say that will be the last time you see that from the Bills.

"We did not like that very much, I don't think," Gailey said. "I think we are going to go back to the linebackers. The safeties did a good job of calling it but they just have too far to go after they call it so we are going to let the linebackers do it."

The Bills and their linebackers will get back to making the calls in the defensive huddle Saturday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
