Technically we were rated worse in almost every statistical category last year than we were in any year with Rex

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’..

Rex is the ultimate Grifter. .......Could you sweet talk your way into $15 million for free?

Those aren't statistical categories. Process trusting and playoff appearances are much more fun.

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.  

 

Can we not do this?

The only thing I miss about Rex Ryan was his idea of building a better offensive line to run the ball and control the clock.

 

I do believe in 2015 he was chasing an undrafted free agent 6'4 320lb OT in La'el Collins who eventually signed with Dallas. As outdated as his ideas on how to run a defense were...the man also had the idea of signing QB Tyrod Taylor, OG Richie Incognito and if he has managed to sign Collins that line would have been even better.

Even from an entertainment perspective it doesn't quite work. Anyone who is on here eating up all that information is going to watch the games no matter what but having a winning team would effect other viewers.

If we had been winning, Rex would have been a lot of fun. But since we didnt, he was just another blithering loud mouth.  Too bad. He had the talent, just couldn't make it happen (due to his own buffoonery).

Me too, wish they would make a show were Walter comes out alive and sets up shop to become the boss, basically a Breaking Bad meets Sapranos meets Sons of Anarchy.

I hated the Rex hire, hated him as a coach..... but I 100% agree - his pressers were fun.  Beane is quite interesting to listen to... he gives away little morsels of information.  McDermott gives you nothing.  I watch every week and each week it is 20 minutes of my life I never get back.

If I had ever had a dog named Rex I would probably miss Rex.

To paraphrase Samuel L Jackson in Django unchained:

I can't listen to him. He sounds like a low budget business consultant spouting well worn phrases about commitment and process blah blah blah ad nauseum.

 

Love the winning though.

Rex was a real "Hands Off" Coach.

Spending time at the Big Tree Inn, instead of watching game film will do that...

Rexstalgia starts with emotion ("I miss the crazy; I miss the truck; I miss all of it") and then quickly finds statistical support.

Hey, where are all the Jets fans pining for the Rex days? Didn't they actually, like, win things with him?
