Following the Buffalo Bills 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson made some controversial comments with respect to coach Chan Gailey allowing quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to make more play calls from the field.
On Monday, Chris Brown on www.BuffaloBills.com noted that Johnson amended his comments about play calling, quoting Johnson as saying, "but what I meant to say was audible, and giving Fitz the ability to audible a little more."
In reacting to Johnson's comments, Bills running back Fred Jackson, on Monday's "The Fred Jackson Show," told co-host Bob Koshinski "anytime you lose a football game we worked so hard to win, you're going to be emotional. Stevie is emotional, and usually vents."
Jackson went on to say, "I would agree with his comments after talking with Stevie. It was about making audibles. ... As a veteran in the game, that's something you want to do, to help you in a situation." Jackson said he felt the situation could have been addressed differently.
Koshinski recaps the Colts game on his website, www.allsportswny.com.
Jackson was joined by rookie wideout T.J. Graham on the show. They discussed what's next for the Bills as the team looks forward to its home game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday at 1 p.m.
The public and members of the Depew High School cheerleaders joined the Buffalo Jills in the Eastern Hills Mall studio audience.
"The Fred Jackson Show" airs Monday night and Tuesday morning on WBBZ-TV. Reservations to attend and watch from the audience can be made online at www.wbbz.tv.
