I just finished reviewing the notes from One Bills Drive on Perry Fewell’s first practice as interim head coach. One concern voiced across the board yesterday was, “How is Fewell going to improve this team?”

Well, it looks like he made quite an impression on the team.

First day back on the practice field saw the Bills in pads and working heavily on the run game. Marshawn Lynch said that he knows one thing: They’re going to be very physical.

Fewell also said that they’re going to be in pads for tomorrow’s practice and that the only way he knows how to improve the run game is to put on the pads and go out there and work.

I think this is the right approach by Coach Fewell. He’s setting a physical tone early and keeping it going. That’s going to be very important for getting the team ready for this Sunday and beyond.

Both sides of the ball need to seriously improve the run game, and he knows it. Good job on focusing on it out of the gate. Teams win by running the ball and stopping the run. Let’s see how that goes on Sunday.

If you yourself want to review today’s practice, check out the video .
