    I can't believe we hired this guy with 30 plus years of offensive coaching experience over Chad Pennington.

    An old but interesting article:


    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...oach-david-lee

    Introducing the Buffalo Bills' Most Important Positional Coach: David Lee

    If Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is going to improve and become more consistent, he'll need solid coaching along the way.

    Thankfully, he now has quarterbacks coach David Lee on his side.

    Lee has coached in the NFL for seven seasons and joins the Bills fresh off a one-and-done tenure with Mississippi as the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach.

    His first NFL coaching gig came in 2003 with the Dallas Cowboys as the offensive quality control coach, where he remained through the 2006 season, playing a hand in the development of Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

    Lee returned to the NFL to join the Miami Dolphins in 2008 after two years with the Arizona Razorbacks (and, subsequently, he played a big role in the implementation of the Wildcat offense in Miami).

    He also helped coach quarterback Chad Pennington to one of the most efficient seasons of his career and his best season in six years. Pennington led the league in completion percentage (67.4) while throwing just seven picks and racking up a 97.4 passer rating along the way.

    Lee's presence should help Fitzpatrick eliminate some of the problems that have ailed him, especially his mechanics. Early indications are that that's been the point of emphasis at practice.

    When asked about the importance of mechanics at the quarterback position, Lee said to Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com:

    Accuracy is the No. 1 critical factor at the quarterback position, and it does come down to your fundamentals. ...If the guy's fundamentals are good and he has a systematic fundamental approach to how he wants to be when he throws the ball, what's happening in the lower body and the upper body at the same time, getting those two in synch increases accuracy and velocity.
    In working with Fitzpatrick, Lee will find that there are enough positives to build upon, and correcting the negatives could be all it takes to create consistency in Fitzpatrick's game.

    Fitzpatrick knows that his mechanics need work—even the touchdown pass seen here is evidence of bad mechanics.

    Terrible hiring.

    But it gets worse . . .

    This might serve as proof that we are stuck with Tebow.

    So the question is; was he hired more for the Wildcat and utilizing Tebow or for his mantra of accuracy and fundamentals in an attempt to fix Sanchez?

    So then the INT machine/choke master/cluster f**k known as Ryan Fitzpatrick was just a fluke?
