For the clown show he became with brother Rob, being a mic whore and coaching an underachieving team, he kept us informed DAILY of what was going on with the team. Every day from the Draft through the season, I could link up here or on B.B.com and get my daily fill of the Bills. I also appreciated that he opened every presser with injury updates. 

Of course he had to go. The schtick wore out quickly and the on field performance was sub par. But he kept us informed. For all the bragging McDermott loves to do about his pro experience, he still hasn’t realized Rule #1, it’s prime time entertainment. On the rare occasion he is in front of the mic, he’s says nothing of value, leaving fans ever-wondering WTH is going on with the team and current injury status. 

Rex brought something the team hadn’t seen before or since. An informed fandom.

 

I also liked his truck..

 

onward with ‘the Process’..

McDermott is focused on winning...say what you want about what you liked about Ryan but he won nothing here.  You know what I find as the best prime time entertainment, actually winning and being competitive.  I'm glad the leaks are over and everything we are doing isn't out for everyone to see.

I have a sneaking suspicion you will be largely alone in your sentiment.

Funny you bring this up...was just talking to a few other Bills fans about Chuck Knox, my favorite Bills coach of all time.  Chuck was everything that Rex wanted to be, minus the big mouth.  I loved Chuck Knox...Rex, not so much. Perhaps his years as the Jets head coach soured me on him, but I never really liked the guy.

You've got to be joking. His truck was ass-backwards with The Bills logo. It's emblematic for what he did to the franchise.

This is what it should have looked like:

This is just about my reaction. I had to click on the topic, just to see what was going on. 7/10 would recommend.

With Rex we won the offseason.

 

With McD we won enough to make the playoffs.

 

I do wish there was more press, info, and video on what's been happening every day.

 

But I would rather wonder about a playoff team than know everything about a team mired in futility.

McD lays on the "coach speak" heavy. It's lame, but I understand why he does it. 

Rex would be hyping up the season big time! "We just got Tremaine Edmunds and Josh Allen, I'd say we won the offseason"

Rex is pretty hard to miss. I'm concerned with the OPs accuracy.

If he let Jim Schwartz run his defense the Bills would have made the playoffs his two seasons as coach and he would have been a hero in Buffalo.  His vision of having on bully on offense really worked.  The Bills had a top 10 offense in both points scored and yards those two years with Tyrod Taylor at QB.  The transition away from the 4-3 killed him.

Hi BT! Long time no hear from! Loved me some Coach Knox too. Rex quickly grew thin on me, but I could count on seeing team updates every single day from him as well as injury status and I don’t appreciate the cloaking new staff keeping everything close to the vest. McDermott doesn’t even know player injury status from the game that just finished -or so he claims.. 

please post more.

We'll see more updates as OTA's continue and training camp starts. Really not much to update at this time.

I liked Doug Marrone way more then Rex Ryan. I never saw the point in bringing in a washed up Jets coach to save the Bills. I remember now, the move was to bring in a big name to sell tickets and it worked. 

 

Rex went on to being on TV and Doug Marrone went on to be a head coach of the Jaguars and bring them to the Playoffs. Doug is football and Rex Ryan is entertainment. 

 

I love the situation we are in now, but if I had to choose between Doug and Rex my choice will always be Doug no question. 

 

I don't miss Rex Ryan at all.

Yeah, I fully expect to see him on some third rate cable network with a reality tv show about his wife's tattoos, and what decal to wrap the truck in this week.  Next week:  "Hey, send bail money!  Rob and I got into a bar fight!"
