Is the old Rex back?
The Bills coach has removed his lap-band, packed on 30 pounds, and is now sounding a lot more like the guy who led the Jets to the precipice of the Super Bowl all those years ago. The veteran coach's fiery side was on display in footage from Rex and Rob Reunited, a team-produced documentary that aired last weekend in Western New York.
"Everything's questioned," Ryan told his players, via ESPN.com. "I forgot to how to f---ing coach. 'The players don't respond to Rex, he don't know what the f--- he's doing anymore.'"
"I'm going to show you how f---ing great I am."
"That's where I'm at. It ain't about being No. 1 in defense, No. 1 in offense, whatever. No, it's about us in this room, holding this damn trophy saying we won the whole m----f-----. That's where I'm at. Don't be afraid of it. I don't give a s--- who knows it. Here we are. Here the f--- we are. That's who the f--- I am."
"I'm going to tell you we're the f---ing best because I believe it. Let me f---ing say it. And if it doesn't work, I'll be the first m-----f----- that goes. And everyone one of you, I f---ing know you've got my back. All I want is every f---ing thing you got. I'll take every f---ing bullet known to man."
We're up to 12!
"But this is our f---ing team. And anything said about anyone in this f---ing room, we should take personally. You win with guys that are (close). Nobody comes between us. It ain't a question about how much we're going to win. We're going to win. Do we have work to do? You're goddamn right we got a s---load of work to do to get there. But aren't we the guys for the f---ing job?"
