Why did Rex only get 2 years?

Recommended Posts

If my memory serves me correct this season is much worse than a couple years ago under Rex. Under Rex the team was very competitive and was almost in every single game that is played. Why did Ryan only get 2 years but with McDermott it's an automatic that he's coming back?

Because there was a ton of problems behind the scenes and also the fact he was hired as a defensive Mastermind and the defence was quite poor ironically it was the offence that carried him .

The following is not a popular opinion on this board:

 

As much as I love the Pegulas, it was a huge mistake firing Rex.  There is no way a coach should be fired in less than two years --- especially a coach who had been the most successful coach for the Buffalo Bills for the past nearly two decades and who was being undermined behind the scenes with leaks etc.  Rex should have been allowed to at least continue for the term of his contract.

 

To put things in perspective, the point differential was much worse last year than the year before and the relative offensive and defensive rankings were worse last year than the year before.  

 

As much as Rex got grief for having 11 men on the field (when, as it turns out, a DB got hurt and a defensive back coach presumably did not send a replacement in the game), Rex never had 15 freaking guys on the field as McCoach did last year against the Pats.  I do not think that I ever have seen any other team or coach have 15 guys on the field at the same time.  

 

Rex also had personality whereas the current guy is McMilktoast and cannot help repeating his stolen mantra the "process."  McCoach is Dick Jauron without the charisma.*  Between  his personality and what he has done with the team, he has sucked the life out of the team (and my view of the team under him).

 

I would take Rex over the current guy and thought it was unfair to undermine and then fire Rex in less than two years. As I state above, Rex should have been allowed to at least coach the team through the term of his contract.

 

As much as I am not particularly impressed with McCoach, I also think that it would be unfair to fire him in less than two years.

 

* For the younger readers, Dick Jauron did not have any charisma . . . and neither does McCoach.  This was a joke.

I was under the impression the reason Ryan was let go was he was basically told to fire that inept buffoon he had as a de facto Defensive Coordinator & he refused so both of them were out on their butts.

Why hasn't Wrex been hired by another team?

That’s the usual prison sentence handed out for impersonation of an NFL genius?

I heard on the radio that he really didn't like all the time that went into coaching and was the last person in and first person out. I think the Pegs got conned by his bravado and when they figured out he just wanted to hang with the guys and didnt run a right ship they cut bait.

Through the same number of games this is how they compare.

 

Rex

12-13

 

McDermott

11-14

Yes, the D did have it's problems under Rex but it was ranked 16th overall.

 

McDermott currently has the worst offense in modern NFL history. That's a bigger issue IMO.

rex was never part of a rebuild. he was, however, the guy in charge as the wheels were falling off the wagon. and "his side" of the ball, with help from his brother, was getting progressively worse all the time.

The defense was ranked 16th which is average.

 

Our current offense is averaging under 11 points a game and is ranked dead last.

The saving grace for Rex was Tyrod and a decent offensive staff including what is proving to be the best O line coach in the business.  The problem he kept running into was the defense was a hot mess, the team was undisciplined and there were a lot of mental errors.  There is a lot of positives on this team but a main reason they aren't succeeding is their O line is not good and the offensive coach can't make up for those deficiences

Its funny because as a defensive headcoach you would know what kind of offensive/players that would give you trouble and build an offensive based upon that. That is what Rex basically did here and ironically it was his stubbornness on defensive that got him fired.

 

On the other hand you got S. Mcdermottt who should know that same thing about what would cause his defensive trouble but did not go about it the same way.  He should know that in no way a QB like Peterman would strike fear in ANY defensive coordinator. Sometimes I feel like a defensive coordinator should know more about what makes a good quarterback even more that a offensive coodinator because he has to defend said player.

Rex Ryan was horrendous and wasted two years of my life.

 

McBeane is hopefully only going to waste one year.

Look at the dead cap number. We're rebuilding and we currently have no qb. Rex would be 0-8 right now and we wouldn't have made the playoffs a year ago.

Clown on Rex as much as you want but ever having Tyrod and Incognito was all him.   Starting to feel like McDermott got very lucky with Rex and Whaleys roster last year.

 

If Allen continues to be a train wreck next year the Bills will be looking for a new head coach in January 2020.  The Pegulas made a giant mistake hiring a coach and letting him hand pick a GM.

It's pretty simple to me, and it makes me want to look at their other businesses to see if I can find any hints of dysfunction to this level.

 

Nobody knew who was their boss whole Rex was here. Whaley was the GM, supposedly had control over the interview process, didn't want Rex. Was probably right given the personnel on defense. 

 

The Pegulas were wowed by Rex and hired him outside of the GM, completely undercutting him. Then you saw the debacle with Tyrod, whether he'd play or not at the end. He needed surgery but wanted to play. Rex needed a win. Whaley was looking at the bigger picture trying to sit him. And the owners ultimately had to make the decision because their was no clear chain of command, and no clear outline of job responsibilities for either.

 

They then promptly threw everyone out in front of the media, and it was well known by that point, Whaley isn't a great communicator.

 

I'm just going to stop. Watching how the Pegulas do things with their teams make me wonder how they are so successful. Happy they kept the teams here, but wow is it bad.

Rex promised to win right away and the roster was built to win right away as soon as he arrived.  He didn't win enough.

 

McDermott promised to win long term and build the roster that way.  Beane is building the roster that way but that also includes some days like yesterday.

 

Have to remember that Rex and Whaley made roster decisions and gave contracts to players that ended up not performing.  The last two seasons have been about McDermott and Beane unloading those contracts and working through the dead cap to restructure the roster.  

 

With that said, this has to be worse than anyone thought it would be.
