ORCHARD PARK, NY- There were many reports over the weekend about what happened with the Bills decision to fire offensive coordinator Greg Roman. Rex Ryan heard them all including the ones that claimed he was upset that offensive players met with owners Terry and Kim Pegula without Ryan being around, and that he was very upset by that.
At his weekly Monday media session Ryan said “In regard to the reports about how players were seeing ownership, that happens all the time I feel fortunate that our owners, I mean they talk to our players, they talk to everybody. I can tell you this: I’m in full support of our owners. And at the end of the day, it really doesn’t matter, does it? They own the football team, they don’t have to get permission to talk to anybody, myself included, but I have no problem with it whatsoever. In fact, I think it’s a real positive thing for us.”
Ryan did reiterate that firing Greg Roman was his decision. "You know what, there’s a couple things I think needs to be, that we have to all understand – No. 1: I made the decision on letting Greg Roman go. That’s it. Final. I made the decision."
Ryan said the Bills remain a team that is, like their mantra this season, all in. "Not everybody is right there in the locker room seeing the things that I see, I mean, I understand it, especially when there has been a move like I made. It’s something I feel very confident in. I believe this organization is 'All In.' I know one thing: We’re all in in the fact that we’re disappointed that we’re 0-2. I also know for a fact that we all expect better things in front of us."
The Bills are home Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.
