Bills owner backs Rex Ryan's decision to fire Greg Roman

As Rex Ryan continued to face questions Monday about why he fired his offensive coordinator, Greg Roman, before making any changes to the coaching staff of his lackluster defense, the Buffalo Bills' head coach defended his decision to hire Rob Ryan as assistant head coach/defense.

"We invented everything new", Incognito joked. McCoy made reference to the fact that he likes running north and south, but too often run plays were created to go east-west.

"It's one guy here or there, but we have to clean that up", Bowles said. I saw a play where Sammy [Watkins] is running down the field with some streamers. We're gonna try to build on the things we did well. Either way, the team moves on with Anthony Lynn as the new coordinator.

Taylor has been unable to build off a breakout season. "So that's probably just the difference". "I'm in full support, no problem with it". It's what you put in the shopping cart and go to check out with. So that's where we're at.

Check status of BILLS WR Marquise Goodwin, who was being checked for a concussion after burning Jets' Darrelle Revis on 84-yard TD catch in Week 2. "Sitting in the offensive meeting, already we're talking about certain situations that will be played differently, challenges to our players".

Roman's offensive playbook was huge. Buffalo holds a 6-4 advantage in the series and has won five of the last six games.

But if fans want a logical explanation to Roman's firing, the lack of dedication to the running game would be it. Lynn is going to return that run-first mentality to Buffalo, and if it's successful at eating some time off the clock, it will help Ryan's ailing secondary. We have, arguably, the best offense coming in the league coming here.

"It (was) a thinking offense".

Paralympic Games officially end in Brazil's Rio
As Craven declared the Games over - with Tokyo now taking up the baton for 2020 - he said Brazil had passed a hard test. Earlier International Paralympic Committee president Sir Philip Craven reflected on Saturday's tragedy.

"Less plays, less thinking", McCoy said.

"I think plays will be simplified a lot", said McCoy.

"Everybody comes from different teams and different philosophies. You're right, we've got guys open, we've got to get them the football".

After a decent performance against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1, in which they gave up just 13 points, the defense let Fitzpatrick and the New York Jets' wide receivers chew them up throughout the night last week.

"We're going to use the numbers on the wristband", said Lynn in reference to his quarterback's play list. "So it's like, OK, there's a few more easier options than those two, but maybe this is exactly what we need".

Ryan has made it clear since firing Roman that he wants to see the ball in his best offensive players' hands more often. The Bills have had difficulty sustaining drives in combining for just 27 first downs and 553 yards offense in two games.

"If we allowed opinions, or if it's media or if it's other people that talk bad about us to get into the mindset of our team, it would be a very, very bad thing", Williams said on the John Murphy Show on Thursday afternoon. "I have nothing but respect for coach Ryan and I thought we had a great working relationship", Roman told Sporting News Sunday.
