It’s no secret that Yankees icon Derek Jeter aspires to own a major league team someday. But maybe the future Hall of Famer would settle for an NFL franchise.
The recently hired Buffalo coach had the tattoo on his biceps updated to his new team’s colors at a parlor in Scottsdale, Arizona, last Friday. “I’m all in,” he told the Wall Street Journal.
Rex Ryan agrees, the situation he’s walking into in Buffalo is similar to the one he just left with the Jets. But he doesn’t care, because, to the surprise of absolutely no one, he says he has a plan.
Who says he wouldn’t be good on television?
After interviewing for at least three NFL head coaching jobs, Marrone landed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as assistant head coach and offensive line coach Tuesday.
Does Rex Ryan remind me of Peter Griffin? Absolutely. Is Rex reminiscent of Homer Simpson? There’s no question.
“I have great respect for him,” said former Steelers coach Bill Cowher, who had Gailey on his staff for four seasons. “I think he’s a very good playcaller. He knows how to get the very best out of what he has.”
The Buffalo Bills’ new coach opened his inaugural news conference with the team Wednesday by tapping the microphone and saying: “Is this thing on? Because it’s getting ready to be on.”
While the Super Bowl combatants will be decided this Sunday, this is the hiring season in the NFL. Here’s a look at the strengths of those who have either filled positions or are likely to soon.
Ryan is already a hit in Buffalo. He was even greeted by a giant pizza that said “WELCOME REX” after arriving in Orchard Park on Tuesday.
Andrew Luck will need to break a winless streak against Tom Brady to earn his first Super Bowl appearance.
I don’t understand the dichotomy of the Jets fan. At once you wanted to run Rex out of town. On the other hand you’re horrified that he’s still in your division.
As a Jets fan, I’m supposed to feel … what, exactly? Bitter? Depressed? Giddy? How about none of the above?
Bills owner Terry Pegula credited Ryan for bringing “a well of experience and enthusiasm” in a statement released by the team.
The team and the former Jets coach are putting the finishing touches on a contract, the report said.
