As the New York Jets defeated the Buffalo Bills in Week 2, could it actually cost Rex Ryan his job?
At the start of the season, head coach Rex Ryan of the Buffalo Bills decided to take a much different approach. For years, especially in his tenure with the New York Jets, he always had a lot of predictions that were empty promises.
Even at the start of his new tenure with the Bills last season, he boasted they would be the “bully of the AFC East” and that they would be back in the NFL Playoffs. Needless to say, the Bills were pretty much a disappointment last season, failing to make the postseason and ending with a record of 8-8.
But sure enough, when it came to facing the Jets, Ryan treated both games as if he was roaming the sideline in two Super Bowls. Sure, he swept the Jets last season but in the grand scheme of things, it didn’t mean anything. The Bills, once again, failed to make the playoffs.
Due to the Jets beating the Bills in front of a national audience on Thursday Night Football, the leadership regime of the Bills wanted heads to roll. Ryan promptly fired offensive coordinator Greg Roman which is ironic when going over the facts of their 0-2 start of the season.

The Bills’ offense wasn’t really the problem, it all stems with Ryan.
The way his tenure with the Jets ended is eerily similar to what is currently happening in Buffalo.
A whole lot of talk with absolutely nothing to show for it.
There is no denying Ryan is a defensive mastermind but his time is running out with the Bills.
If they fail to make the postseason yet again, this will end up with him getting the pink slip.
While Ryan still has a job at the time of this writing, the Jets undoubtedly made sure to win this game to silence him once and for all. It wasn’t easy but the Jets won a game that pretty much put them in the right direction while sending Ryan’s Bills into a downward spiral.
Overall, the Jets technically had a hand in the dismissal of Roman and well, put a notch on Ryan. A notch that has the higher-ups wondering if Ryan is the right guy for the job.
