has no idea what his head coach, Chan Gailey, is talking about when he mentions the reason Spiller doesn't get more carries is because he is "winded".

Gailey repeatedly has mentioned that Spiller gets "winded." As far as we know, Spiller is a finely tuned professional athlete without a Marlboro habit. He was asked today about his conditioning.

"I'm not going to get into a battle with my head coach if I'm winded," Spiller said. "I'm in shape. Let's just put it like that. I'm in shape. If I wasn't in shape, then I shouldn't be on the field. But I'm in shape."

Spiller had eight touches Sunday -- one over the final 22 minutes of the game. The Bills tried to get the ball to rookie receiver T.J. Graham as often as they did to Spiller, the NFL's leader in yards per carry.

Afterward, Gailey again mentioned Spiller "gets winded and he comes out."

Spiller said he will sit down with Gailey soon and try to understand what he means.
