Just another reason why Rex and his crew was fired

Recommended Posts

Rex was a disaster from day one, and hiring him was a sign the Pegulas' judgment was dicey. The team was on the verge of respectability, with a lot of good players on the roster, though the cap situation was shaky.

 

As to whether the subsequent transformation of the team under McDermott & Beane was worth it, there's some promise, but this season will tell the tale. If Josh Allen does not show significant improvement and the Bills face-plant this season, Rex's hiring will only look like even more of a disaster.

I disagree that Wrecks Ryan wasn’t at fault.

 

Everyone knows Wrecks is as lazy as they come. He wasn’t at one time but he then, somewhere along the line, decided he liked the spotlight of being a HC more than he liked putting in the work to be a successful HC. 

 

The man is a fraud and would jump at the first opportunity to come back as a HC but that chance will never come because everyone knows what he’s about.

there is not a more fraudulent one hit wonder family on the planet.....Blowhard Buddy's claim to fame was the Bears' "46"......and he even fought with Ditka.....next we have his eloquent punching out of Gilbride...Blowhard was an abysmal failure as a HC...next up we have Rex, who rode the wave of the Ravens D to HC status......yet another abysmal mess....and sadly the neophyte Pegula's were snookered by the" Brandon Deal" to make Bills WNY territory the new laughing stock known as "Jets West"(special thanks to the now disposed BranDUMB-errant wankers can cause problems).....and Rob?.....he rode the name coat tails and now is a perfect fit with Boy Danny's Deadskins as Inside LB Coach (WTF? differentiate between inside and outside?) as well as Executive Buffet Line Manager.....find me a sadder lot and I will STFU......

Ed doesn't want to put the work in. A lot of players who want to be coaches intern and do the grunt work for a few years on staff. He just wants to be coach because he's Ed Reed.

What he did with the Jets with Sanchez as his QB was far from terrible, problem is his ego got the best of him over the years and became a very lazy coach.

He came to Buffalo to rob us blind. (fug Russ Brandon)

 

I think the other problem Rex had was other teams figured out his defense.  So like any good coach Rex tweaked it, but think his tweaks took the defense to the point it became way too complicated to execute.  Don't think he forgot how to coach, but that's where the ego part hurt him thinking this complicated scheme would work.

 

He also was as they say a players coach, but you need a certain type of player for that to work with and usually a few years to develop it.  Here it was becoming a frat house and Rex was just a hot mess.  I really think that was what got him fired more than the record, things like wearing a Clemson helmet to a press conference, the excessive penalties, hirng his brother, making the captain for the Jet's game the guy who broke Geno's jaw, the list goes on.

...whole Ryan family redefined football frauds because of one occurrence in their backgrounds  (Buddy and the "46"; Rex and the Ravens; Rob and his appetite) that  propagated potential greatness...woeful failures....

I know Rex looks like he is out of control here but you should pick a different video since the scoreboard is 34-8 and clearly he did his job that day.

Or the team got it done in spite of him.  Maybe could have been 38-0 with a better coach.

 

*edit*

It's like where defenders of (for example) a controversial movie say "the boycott/internet outrage clearly accomplished nothing, because the movie still pulled in $X million opening weekend".  Well maybe it would have done 10% better without the boycott, or would have had better numbers after the opening weekend when the boycott-proof diehard fans had already seen it.

Rex was a clown, we all know that. But why? He did have early success.

 

My theory has always been the game passed him by. His defense was innovative at first, but offenses adjusted, the game changed in his era (rules and philosophy all suited to help produce offense) and he didn’t.

 

More evidence of his inability to adjust is changing a top defensive when he got here to fit his scheme rather than adjusting self to play to his players strengths.

 

The game evolved, he didn’t. He is to coaching what Kodak was to cameras.

his early success was because he surreptitiously rode the great Ravens defense, driven by superior personnel and NOT his coaching IMO..probably 2nd to the '85 Bears......he became more of a schemer than a scheme developer.....thanks Russ.....

Exactly.  This is not "another" reason Rex was fired.  It's THE reason he was fired.  He failed to lead of group of coaches and players to success.

I thought when hired it was a good one.

 

However from the quote it appears he thinks he is ready to be a DC already.  I agree he needs to put in the work and I have not heard of one job he applied for and he is not even trying to start at bottom and coaching in college.

IMO, Rex lost his work ethic and passion or the Monday-Saturday grind after year one here.    He was always supremely flawed as a HC, but he seemed to just loose all interest in managing things and was already looking ahead to a broadcasting career...

The jets: He took over a winning team added a couple players, enjoyed two good seasons. Then ran it into the ground. 

 

That's spot on !....Mangini built that team and Rex came in and enjoyed the goods...He's really a bad HC....lack of discipline....wants to be a friends to the player as oppose to their boss.....really, I mean really bad time managements.....or uses of time outs.....and...hiring his lousy brother was criminal...

 

Never liked the hire ...we lost a few seasons because of that clown....

Must admit I was all in for Gregg, Mularky, Dick, Chan, St Doug, Rex (loved that blue pickup), Rob, Drew, JP, Trent, Fitz, EJ, and even NP.  Definitely now a billiever in McD and Josh.  I'm over due.  Law of averages say we got our guys.  Go Bills!!    

If you like to throw the dice I suspect you might be financially challenged.

my intent was not to overall defend Rex but simply pointing out that day he did his job and i am quite sure there are better graphics to make the point.

It was a mistake to give him a 5 year contract just because previous coach opted out because they would not guarantee him & his assistants and had a clause to get out with bonus.
