We have a special guest this morning welcome to buffalo Rex Ryan bills head coach. Retaining here thank you very much great to beer he must be an early guy we were thinking because we don't do many interviews at 6:30 in the morning with the people in studio. I think you know as a football coach you're an early guy you're only guy you know so. I think here you know pretty much pretty flexible yes wrecks like the school compared to whether the merchant. You show the girls well the path. Well right now I don't have a driveways so. Yeah I'll do grab birds as far as anybody knows that that won't be the case over and it's. Now it's funny and they get snowed every single day since I've been here so that's that's a good sign went into this when neutral your life you decided you want a coach and Buffalo, New York which says. Our shoes off fired up about and others there's no doubt. It was really it's funny you know it's been set that I won the live with a snow is there was relief that you know she made that comment I just nodded my head so that's. You know that's really how that happened. It wrecks have you decided where you won Olivia you were talking about scientists know his place in Western New York. And you found it. I think so we were a live right there in Orchard Park so we got to place and the court of moving into its own. Like your dad Buddy Ryan spent some time here at the university at buffalo coach in the U people's. Now at that point in his life in the early read did you live here in the buffalo area with your parents. And I don't have that many memories about it to be honest with the you're how old I was it was. But yes you know it's what's funny about that is you know he spent about thirty years coaching in the the NFL. But Gerry Feldman is a guy that he coached. A university of buffalo and he's the one that when we view bank was asking him. His opinion about a defense line coach he mention might my father announced the the guy that really gotten started. You know coach in the NFL. It actually got to ask you about Richie in kind you know. What is he like what did you say to you in kind of may be. Relieve people's thoughts that the house disguise of bullying and this is not the kind of guy we want on our team here in buffalo what what is Ritchie really like. Well first off you know I understand concerns there's there's no doubt about it and however I'm also get a believes and in second chances and sit down and in you know talking with Richie I truly believe that. That sets in the past I know he's really look at Ford. He notes have put that all behind him and move forward and and I wanna bring in a guy that. I thought would have issues like that in the locker room in the community certainly so I think we're gonna get a guy you know and I admits in the term Bob build them a bully and and in a pretty much you know are probably misspoke pyramid but because when I was meeting is. That I won't have them the most the toughest most physical. Football team. You know on the field but I went gentleman off the field and I believe Richie. You know will will fit that in you know and if I didn't believe that we he wouldn't be here. Interestingly. And the Philadelphia Flyers toward the toward five years ago or call the broad street bullies won't ever gave that a second thought back then how influential where you've. You are Rex Ryan and getting Richey and Todd Newton to come here. When I did. I think it was you know you look at we're we're trying to get the best combination you know of players and all I type stuff that we can have. The end heroes an opportunity for us there's no denying the fact that Richie is an outstanding football player. He was you know coming off a Pro Bowl season and then. Obviously. He had the the you know the sun come up. But. You know he is an outstanding player that there's no question about it and so we want to do our own investigating you know why you weigh in might hurt some. Some positive things some positive changes a bottom we brought him in. He met with ownership myself and energy and Doug Whaley and and you know and now is a Buffalo Bill. We're live with Rex Ryan bills head coach in our studio this morning wrecks a listener question this morning. Who's coming to buffalo to compete for the starting quarterback position does EJ stand a chance or is he trade bait. Know I AJ definitely stands a chance to be the guy there there's no doubt. You always want to be patient on it on a young you know talented guy obviously Jim was trapped in the first round for for many reasons. And I think he you know it's funny is probably fifteen years ago or so. Everybody would be patient with it with the young quarterback. And now you know you see these guys coming in and in a case you have a rookie year to you know step forward and induced good things but EG did you know initially he had some you know some really good moments but. I think he's got to improve. Fundamentally I think that's words starts David lees and here is our quarterback coach we're excited about that. The Vijay certainly will have an opportunity to be that quarterback. In as far as haven't who else is common and that's a great question I can honestly say there's not one person in the organization right now right now that can answer that question so we're. Were really in the evaluating stages right now. Rex Ryan and the new head coach of the Buffalo Bills and some studio with Susan O'Neill's mourning wrecks I've always wanted to ask. Every coach ever coached the bills but I never had an opportunity that's so dominant view the critics. After a game when you read the paper the next day when you listen to radio watch TV and you sports guys starting to second guess of these guys ever. Close to being right. Does it irritate you does that bother you know I think you don't want it it's. Sometimes serve their soul right out as scary things have put than there's other times maybe not so much but. You know what they have been in the business a long time and and you know if you want a lot of positive things said about you than play well if if you know that the negative part comes with it at that comes with territory if you don't play well. Then. You know then that's fine that comes with the territory but. You know I I think really the media. All outlets they David job to do when and just like anybody else says they'll they'll do what they thinks. What they see and and I certainly understand that sometimes don't agree with that but I understand. Rex you know we're wondering help continue our Ani dec consumed at the bills TAT and no debt. In a president Obama's asking congress for more powers with crisis. Do you follow the Brian Williams side you know with NBC did to buy a powerball ticket last night worth a half billion by the way. The and you know it's fun Edwin and it's still coach. As that's assess that's the truth I think I'm more of you know excited about the sabres straight then that AM with other you know current events. So that they kind interest me and and them. You know Evander Kane and and and I forget the young man's name the defenseman. That was part of that the other young kid went 24 usual things like that so I'm excited about that and yes. I'm war. You know more involved in our community than I am maybe world movement. There's lots of controversy here about Ralph Wilson Stadium his future and you've been there many many times before becoming head coach of the bills. What do you think of that stadium. Overall. Well I tell you what it's you know the stadium itself is you know is nice obviously I wasn't in there with all the renovations and things like that this year that that they get to. Our game well when I was with the Jessica moved to the two Detroit. I recall I was a guy that actually still counts and I wish the game was in buffalo because how great the fans are. But I remember you know I don't sit near the stadium downtown do all that but I can tell you this is Meehan on the opposing side line. That thing I remember most by the stadium is the fans and you know so they're actually terrific in. You know loud and in you know totally behind their bills and and and that was exciting former so as far as the other stadium might you know ahead. That's about my only experience would still like doing it Super Bowl commercial for Pizza Hut. Our cash you know it was. To swallow saying studio is is pretty fun you know these. It's amazing to me that they can shoot. You know you'd be there for eight hours on on some open and in their slate you know ten seconds of film only really his as a coach you get one take you know audio on Shaq nets did they hear their late public suit again him. I hear ago you know so but that's. He it was kind of fun when you're in Phoenix we saw the photographs of you having to. Was that your. Idea on your own rules that it comes suggestions. On on us deathly mine. You have in the picture gets splashed all over the place that was somebody else's idea. Because I certainly did an agreement that knowing period took the picture of him but you know comes with the territory and but no absolutely I'm all in Vietnam Buffalo Bill there's no doubt and now I'm excited about that. And it's just another way of of me basically saying that I'm and that thing is is blue and and you know I'm not gonna change it ever yeah. You're not bleeding green anymore you bleeding blue and red there's no doubt and and I well this will be my last stop. A little more cautious view on FaceBook. No longer had to try to tends not to.
