Tyrod Taylor blows off reporters to end season

With the Buffalo Bills dismissing head coach Rex Ryan this week after less than two full seasons, it appears clear that the Bills are ready to move forward in a new direction.

Ryan's twin brother, Rob, also was let go from his job as an assistant coach.

The Bills are going to be facing the New York Jets on Sunday, as Ryan would have had a chance to salvage an 8-8 season for the second year in a row.

Gilmore, who is now not under contract next season, may have played his final game in a Bills uniform.

Rex Ryan was sacked on Tuesday after a disappointing two year stint with the Bills, where he went 15-16 and failed to make the postseason.

Anthony Lynn will do his best to change the culture and be hard on his players in his lone week as the team's interim head coach.

In the Bills locker room, News 4 sources tell us there is a renewed sense of excitement for the team. After taking over for Greg Roman as offensive coordinator in Week 2, Lynn revitalized the Bills running game.

Lynn's coaching career began in 2000 with the Denver Broncos. The switch comes the same day the Bills fired coach Rex Ryan. I wrote a couple weeks ago that if there was one place for Todd Haley to jump to, assuming he's interested in becoming a head coach again, it was Buffalo. He posted the franchise's top record since 2004 in his final season as head coach with a 9-7 mark. However, according to the player, it is going to be nothing more than a swansong after 12 seasons with the Jets.

The former New York Giants head coach, and 2-time Super Bowl victor, has a very healthy market.

Buffalo has allowed 30 or more points five times and allowed more than 400 yards offense four times, both matching last year's total. "As his teammates, we just need to go out there and try to do our best to help E.J. and help the team get the win". Buffalo leads the league in rushing with an average of 170.8 yards a game. In fact, they only managed to get 10 men on the field on a critical overtime play on which Miami's Jay AJayi broke off a 57-yard run that set up a game-winning field goal. He requested a trade, but couldn't come to a new agreement on a contract with the Broncos, who wound up drafting Paxton Lynch in the first round instead.

Another major decision facing the next head coach is quarterback.

In addition to Manuel being named the starter, it was Cardale Jones-not Tyrod Taylor- taking the second-team reps during the open portion of practice. However, with the last kick of normal time, Andrew Franks tied the game up, and then in overtime repeated the trick, knocking the ball over from 27 yards, and sending the Bills to 7-8.
