Rex Ryan isn’t done bashing the New England media.
The Buffalo Bills head coach got testy Thursday after a reporter mentioned his love of talking about the Patriots, saying New England beat writers were the ones who were “obsessed” with the team and “talk about them every single day.” So when his brother, former New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, was a guest on NFL Network’s “NFL GameDay” on Sunday, Ryan called in and took another shot at New England’s media.
“I think (Rob is) doing a great job,” Rex Ryan said, per WEEI.com. “I don’t think there’s any doubt about it. The whole show, the little bit I’ve seen of him, it’s been great. It really has been a lot of fun and things like that. Certainly better than the Boston media, that’s for sure.”
Not everyone was as impressed with Rob Ryan’s appearance after he made a joke about Hurricane Katrina, but Rex Ryan didn’t want to just talk about his brother, anyway. Ryan proceed to talk up his quarterback and lament the “disrespect” he’s been shown.
“I’ve got news for you,” Ryan said. “Tyrod Taylor is coming into town and he is the third-rated quarterback in the National Football League that nobody talks about. He’s a young man. We’ve got a few guys that are back healthy right now, so our team is going to give what we have and certainly the disrespect that they showed him and things like that with their questioning and things like that, so we’ll see.
“We’ll give a good shot, and the whole country will get to see this young man play. We know it will be tough against a Bill Belichick defense, but our team is going to show up. Believe me, we will show up.”
The Patriots will get to see if the Bills show up this week during “Monday Night Football.”
