How the Bills Decided on Rex Ryan as head coach

"Owners Terry and Kim Pegula had to formulate a plan in short order after their previous head coach chose to opt out of his contract. We’ve all heard how he wasn’t at the top of Buffalo’s list in the early stages of the Bills search for a new head coach.The Pegulas, along with President Russ Brandon and GM Doug Whaley, didn’t sit down with Rex Ryan until they were a full week into candidate interviews. But the veteran coach obviously changed the dynamics of the Bills’ search for a new sideline boss. Here’s how."

ESPN’s Ron Jaworski: ‘Buffalo Bills will be a Playoff team’

"The Buffalo Bills have the longest playoff drought in the National Football League at 15 years (and counting). ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski says this is the year the Bills break through and make it to the postseason.“Yes, it’s a playoff team to me,” said on the team’s official website. “The Buffalo Bills will be a playoff team. There will be great energy coming to Western New York once again.”The Bills made some big moves in the off season to try and make Jaworski’s playoff prophecy come true."

Rex Ryan tried to trade for Ravens backup QB Tyrod Taylor

"Wait what!? Yeah, apparently Rex Ryan, the former Ravens‘ defensive coordinator tried to trade for backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor when Ryan was the head coach of the New York Jets. Don’t believe me, here it is from the big man’s mouth when talking to ESPN back in May.“I actually tried to trade for [Taylor] when I was with the Jets. If he’s not the fastest quarterback in the league, he’s certainly up there with them. He’s got great run skills. I’m not gonna say he’s Russell Wilson, but he’s got a little of that in him, where he’s able to run zone reads and pull the ball down and be effective.”"

Buffalo Bills’ Steve Tasker won’t compaign for Hall of Fame inclusion

"Steve Tasker left it all out of the field when he played, going the extra mile as a special teams ace for the Buffalo Bills in the late 1980s and early 1990s. As he did during his playing days, Tasker wants to leave his Hall of Fame candidacy on the field, too.“I don’t want to mount a campaign to get in the Hall of Fame,” Tasker told John Murphy Show guest host Sal Capaccio on Wednesday. “I don’t like the way that feels to me. I understand that’s probably what it would take. And a lot of guys do that openly. It’s not in my nature.”"
