I was watching the Green bay game and thought I saw Alex on the sidelines and sure enough it's him. Always liked him as a backup and am Glad to see he still coaching.



"Van Pelt was hired by the Packers as the Running Backs Coach on February 13, 2012."

He was the Bills OC from 2004-05--- I see Van Pelt didn't join the Bills' coaching staff until 2006 though, so maybe that's not necessarily the connection.

Clements was a great qb in the CFL for the Ottawa Roughriders. Or was it Rough Riders?

This might explain why GB has a crap running game. Pill as the Bills QB coach and then OC under Jauron was horrid.

A good Bills trivia question would be to name the Bills OCs of the past 10 or 12 years. I know I can't do it.

I was one of the few that think he did a good job as off. coordinator. By the end of the season (under Fewell) the Bills had a great running game.

Gosh....

Modkins the last 3
Clements, van pelt, the Turk, Fairchild, gilbride had a couple years.... This 6 should be about 10 years sadly (perhaps more sadly I may have missed one but I think that's it

Yes, he was also our Offendive Coordinator for 1 year before Gailey was hired. I referred to him as "our former OC" to further indicate I don't want him back in that capacity.

He sucked as our starting QB and he sucked as our QB coach and he sucked as the interim OC.  Pass.

Actually it was the Hamilton T-Cats, and Rocky Dipietro was his slot back (similar to TE in the NFL) and they were a great tandem.  :)
