Rob Ryan is the worst defensive coordinator in the league and has been for a while. If he wasn't Buddy's kid he would be coaching linebackers at a JUCO in Mississippi.

Or you could always listen to Todd Bowles be boring in a press conference (like everyone else).

But yes, their defense is looking lost right now.
.

I like their game. They are Buddy Ryans' kids for sure.

Taylor got his bell rung and Hochuli sent him to the sideline. Good call

Yeah, I thought he was being overly reactionary after last weeks game, but you saw on that replay he was popped good.

I don't really give a shit about either of these teams, but any time the Blow Hard Brothers lose a game it is a good day.

Darrelle Revis didn’t know Marquise Goodwin was a track star (he does now)

Posted by Mike Florio on September 16, 2016, 11:53 AM EDT
Getty ImagesJets cornerback Darrelle Revis learned something last night: Bills receiver Marquise Goodwin is a track star.
Goodwin got behind Revis for an 84-yard catch-and-run touchdown on the first throw of the night from Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor. After the game, Revis was asked about Goodwin’s speed.
“He’s fast. He’s definitely fast,” Revis told reporters. “He’s just a fast receiver. I don’t know if he’s a track star, but he’s just a fast receiver.”
Asked if he’d be surprised to learn Goodwin was a member of the USA’s track and field team at the London Olympics in 2012, Revis said, “No, I wouldn’t be surprised. I definitely wouldn’t.”
Coach Todd Bowles told reporters that Revis was in zone coverage on the play. Regardless, Revis tried to run with Goodwin and couldn’t. Which means that he’ll be tested more and more by teams with better receivers than Goodwin.
That’s not to say Goodwin is a slouch, but he isn’t nearly as accomplished as last night’s play would suggest. Whether he builds on that moment remains to be seen.

Haha!
Rex Ryan concedes his defense stunk

Posted by Mike Florio on September 16, 2016, 9:36 AM EDT
APLast night’s Bills-Jets game ended in a 37-31 win for New York, an outcome that carries with it a sense that the Bills weren’t blown off the field. Truth be told, they were.
But for a pair of fluky long touchdown passes and a right-place, right-time fumble recovery that became another score, the Bills would have lost by 20 or more points. Even with the one-score final score, Rex Ryan’s defense played like anything but a Rex Ryan defense. And Rex Ryan knows it.
“I mean, we thought we could cover them,” Ryan told reporters after the game. “For one, we thought we’d have a chance. We knew obviously they have a great group of receivers; [Eric] Decker and Brandon Marshall obviously. But the other guys — I thought [Quincy Enunwa] played his butt off against us, [Robby Anderson], whoever, [Jalin Marshall], everybody showed up. And so you got to give them credit because they certainly did a great job and we couldn’t do anything to disrupt them rhythm-wise. I was afraid to pressure because we weren’t holding up in man coverage, which we played the whole game in. We tried to stuff [Brandon Marshall], we tried quarters, we tried deuce; we did everything. But you know what? To their credit, it never mattered what we played because they were the better team today outcome, the idea.”
The Jets were the far better team. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick had 374 yards passing. Decker and Marshall had triple digits in receiving, and Quincy Enunwa had 92. Matt Forte added 100 yards rushing. Rex and Rob Ryan surely are expected to do better than that.
“We have to get a lot better. I mean I thought we played well defensively the first game. We played, I mean, horribly today. And I think it’s the same thing — we played poor on offense the first week, we played pretty good today, so it’s like we got to be consistent but I think the big thing — I give the opponent credit. They’re the ones who deserve it. They made plays, they were throwing jump balls and then went out and caught them.”
It gets no easier for the 0-2 Bills next week or the next, with the Cardinals and Patriots on the docket. And if it gets no better, the question won’t be whether Rex Ryan gets fired after the season. It will be whether he gets fired during it.

Uh Ryan is nothing if not a survivalist.

He hams up the cowboy image, but he knows what he is doing.

AP hurt so that could be good news for the Lions but Sam Bradford and Diggs is looking like a lethal combination.

Ouch for the Vikings.
They are close to being my least favorite NFL team (Bears #1). I still would like to see the Lions beat a Vikings team in full force, not handicapped by losing Bridgewater and AP.
