Fired Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan was all bluster and no bite

Controversial Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan has been fired, the team announced in a shocking statement on December 27. Additionally, the Bills dismissed defensive assistant Rob Ryan, Rex's twin brother.

Ryan's production wasn't bad in his near two full seasons in Western New York as he finished 8-8 in 2015 and 7-8 this time around. The loss not only officially eliminated the team from the playoffs, but also rid them of finishing with a winning record. The Jets won that first matchup 37-31 after losing both of last season's games to the Bills.

Rex Ryan has been with the team since 2015, after he was canned by the New York Jets.

"I spoke with Rex earlier today and we mutually agreed that the time to part ways is now".

Fed raises interest by 0.25 points
Stocks moved firmly higher on Thursday after a knee-jerk selloff late Wednesday tied to the Federal Reserve's rate hike outlook. On Thursday, the dollar was trading above 117 yen, having topped the 117 level overnight for the first time in 10 months.

The defence has underperformed once again this year, despite Ryan's off-season vows. When he didn't get the job, he chose to follow Rex Ryan down to Buffalo to be the Bills' running backs coach.

The act was entertaining and the jokes were amusing, but after two failed runs as head coach, Rex is likely out of chances. One is that Kelly has a legitimate shot at returning next season.

While Lynn could be the true successor to Ryan in Buffalo, it's probably worth shopping his services to get into the best situation possible.

Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator is one of the hotter names on the coaching market right now. Despite Ryan's bravado his team did not improve this year and is already out of postseason contention.

Jennifer Lawrence, Robin Wright, and Meryl Streep are just a few of the women who have spoken out about the pay gap in Hollywood. We caught up with the " Shameless " star Monday at The Grove where we ask him about Emmy's contract dispute demanding equal pay.

Ryan's firing won't come cheaply for the Bills. "I'm just going to try to win this game". Offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn was named the team's interim coach for the Bills' season finale against the New York Jets. Marrone, ironically is the interim head coach now for the Jacksonville Jaguars after they fired their head coach Gus Bradley a little over a week ago.

In truth, it was Ryan's fabled defense that proved his undoing. He has had six straight nonwinning seasons as an National Football League head coach since taking the Jets to the AFC title game in each of his first two seasons. That is the direction that the entire league has taken, and it would represent the counterpoint to the hiring of the defensive-minded Ryan the last time around.

There are now reports of the Bills benching starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor in favor of backup quarterback EJ Manuel.

Plus, the S.F. defense couldn't get off the field, allowing the NY offense to convert 9-of-19 third- and fourth-down conversions. Hyde finished the first half with seven carries for 141 rushing yards against one of the league's top rushing defenses.
