Buffalo Bills head Rex Ryan was nice with Buffalo reporters earlier in the day, but when it came time for his exchange with Boston-area reporters, Rex was a bit testy to say the least.
In case you didn’t know, Rex is kinda obsessed with beating the Patriots. He even talks about them while preparing for other teams, and when confronted with a simple question of whether he stays up all night thinking about his 1-8 record against the Super Bowl champs since 2011, he shot back.
“You know what? The only reason I talk about them is they’re the No. 1 team in our division,” Ryan said, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald. “That’s where we want to be. You guys always say that I’m obsessed with them and all that. You guys are obsessed with them, not me. You’re the ones who talk about them every single day.”
“I’ll tell you this, we prepare for them the same way we prepare for every team that we face. But do we want to beat them? Absolutely. Do I want to beat them more than any team? Yeah, because they’re the standard. They’ve won. They’re the ones who win the division. To me, that’s why.
“But do I obsess with them and all that? You guys write that I’ve lost (eight) of (nine), so why are you even talking to me. I obviously have no clue how to attack them or defend them, so you guys should talk to somebody else who has a better record than I do against them.”
