The Buffalo Bills have made a splash by hiring Rex Ryan as their new head coach.
Ryan coached the New York Jets for six seasons. After reaching the AFC Finals in his first two years at the helm of the Jets, they haven’t had a winning season since. Last month, Ryan was dismissed after a 4-12 season.
In the early 1990’s, the Bills reached four consecutive Super Bowls under head coach Marv Levy and quarterback Jim Kelly, but did not win the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Since then, the Bills have had some lean years and have not reached the post-season since 1999. Although the Bills enjoyed their first winning season in a decade, head coach Doug Marrone exercised an opt out clause in his contract on New Year’s Eve which permitted to resign while collecting his salary for next season. This did not go over well with the Bills player like safety Aaron Williams who tweeted, “Lost all respect!! Completely p*ssed off, but not gonna let it ruin my New Years.”
I have a feeling that Rex Ryan and the Buffalo Bills will be a nice fit. Ryan needed a change of scenery even if he’s only going upstate. The Bills are on the cusp of contention, are angry, motivated and have something to prove. I think Rex Ryan will a find a way to channel that anger and motivation.
Obviously, the New England Patriots have a good chance at winning the Super Bowl next month. But I have a feeling the Pats will have their hands full with the Bills next year.
