Bills fire offensive coordinator Greg Roman after two games

Greg Roman AP

Rex Ryan’s seat in Buffalo might not have been the hottest after all.

Two games into the season, the Bills have fired offensive coordinator Greg Roman, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The Bills are 0-2 and starting down a part of the schedule which isn’t conducive to turning things around quickly, with games against the Cardinals and Patriots on the horizon.

The Bills scored 31 of their 38 points last night against the Jets, but finished 12th in scoring offense and 13th in total yards last season.

    Fired for putting up 31 points vs the jets?? Talk about taken one for the team. Cold World!

  2. thepftpoetinreverse says: Sep 16, 2016 1:29 PM

    Hmmm… Sure that defense didn’t have more to do with the loss? Can’t wait to watch both of them Ryan clowns get booted together.

  3. 12coltsfan12 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:30 PM

    LOL

    What’s worse than Wrecks Ryan

    yup, 2 of them.

    Buffalo has always been a punchline but this is a new low!!!

  4. richndc says: Sep 16, 2016 1:30 PM

    Um, they fired the WRONG coordinator!

  5. igotgamenj says: Sep 16, 2016 1:30 PM

    They fired the wrong coach..D was horrible last night !

  6. buffalosunshine says: Sep 16, 2016 1:30 PM

    hopefully this is just the first shoe..

  7. returntoexcellence says: Sep 16, 2016 1:32 PM

    Yeah, because clearly it’s the offense that’s the problem…

  8. doggeatdogg says: Sep 16, 2016 1:32 PM

    And the winner for who gets fired first goes to… I was actually expecting the Browns.

  9. kash71 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:32 PM

    Remember when Buffalo looked like the team of the future, then Rex got hired.

  10. mikeinsanfran says: Sep 16, 2016 1:32 PM

    Sign your promising QB to a $92-million extension, fire his coordinator after two games. Smart.

  11. DerekCarrsGoldenArm says: Sep 16, 2016 1:33 PM

    But yet the guy who consistently brings bad defense with him to whatever team he goes to stays. Is there a worse defensive coordinator than Rob Ryan?

  12. 700levelvet says: Sep 16, 2016 1:33 PM

    But Rob Ryan keeps his job… It’s amazing to me how these two buffoons have fooled NFL owners for so long…

  13. bvolke says: Sep 16, 2016 1:33 PM

    So, the defense gets smoked by a journeyman QB, and Rex fires Greg roman?!?! What the hell is going on in Buffalo?!

  14. jjackwagon says: Sep 16, 2016 1:33 PM

    They scored 31 pts last night. The offense wasn’t the problem!

    Guess Rex is unwilling to admit his brother is the problem. Which, in turn, makes Rex the problem. Look for both of them to hit the bricks real soon.

  15. buffalosunshine says: Sep 16, 2016 1:33 PM

    PS sever on those pts were the Defense and 7 of them came with about 1 minute left… beyond that 7 of them came after a crazy scramble that had Taylor finding Salas on a broken play… That is 21 of the 31 having nothing to do with Roman.. tired of seeing his horizontal offense..

  16. mightymightylafootball says: Sep 16, 2016 1:33 PM

    That escalated quickly…

  17. dwarftosser says: Sep 16, 2016 1:34 PM

    That’s hilarious. They fired the one competent guy on their staff… This train wreck is going to be hard to take our eyes off of.

  18. itsfootballbaby says: Sep 16, 2016 1:34 PM

    Good move…. you won’t win any games scoring only 31 points. Uhhh maybe it was Rex’s D giving up 38 that lost the game.

  19. RegisHawk says: Sep 16, 2016 1:34 PM

    The Claranettes will be anxious to have him back!!!

  20. pioniere says: Sep 16, 2016 1:34 PM

    The wheels are literally starting to fall off…

  21. cantbeatlogic says: Sep 16, 2016 1:35 PM

    Did they find a long lost 3rd Ryan brother for OC?

  22. joemontanafootball16 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:35 PM

    Their offense wasn’t really the problem last night…

  23. marcuswelby1 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:35 PM

    The fish rots from the head (coach)

  24. juice08 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:35 PM

    The offense sucked last night outside of two plays, so not like it’s without merit. But, uh….

  25. larry321 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:35 PM

    Wow!! Ryan Fitzpatrick carved up that swiss cheese defense and the OC gets fired?!?!?!?!? Jets scored on 7 of 10 drives last night and Fitzpatrick looked like Drew Brees. I guess you can’t fire yourself and your brother.

  26. nhpats says: Sep 16, 2016 1:36 PM

    How many times did the Bills stop the Jets offense last night? I can only remember a single punt.

  27. eyezworld says: Sep 16, 2016 1:36 PM

    dumb dumb dumb…but hey you have to blame someone

  28. jeffreyshulenburg says: Sep 16, 2016 1:36 PM

    Well, his rushing offense has been horrendous this season and outside of 84 and 71 yard TDs the team was once again bad in the passing game.

    I cant say I agree with it, but the defense has been stronger than offense so far and the defense hasnt exactly been stellar

  29. robadat says: Sep 16, 2016 1:36 PM

    richndc says:
    Sep 16, 2016 1:30 PM

    Um, they fired the WRONG coordinator!
    ——————————————————
    Couldn’t agree more…

    Offense did enough to win game last night in limited time they had. D did nothing and couldn’t get off the field on third downs all night.

  30. Juan says: Sep 16, 2016 1:38 PM

    Ryan duo will always find a scapegoat. Proven losers usually do.

  31. MiamiDolphinsNationTravelingtoNewEngland says: Sep 16, 2016 1:39 PM

    No problem, Rob can run the offense too, into the ground that is.

  32. raiderrob21 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:39 PM

    “The Bills scored 31 of their 38 points last night against the Jets”

    Then what team scored the other 7 points for the Bills?????????????????

  33. loumann says: Sep 16, 2016 1:40 PM

    If they didn’t know this guy wasn’t for them before the season started …..well it’s Buffalo ….forget it.

  34. dsigrey says: Sep 16, 2016 1:42 PM

    31 points against a great Jets defense and you fire the OC? Should have fire your brother, or better yet should never have hired him.

  36. angeljperea says: Sep 16, 2016 1:43 PM

    THE INCONVENIENT TRUTH: I am not Buffalo fan, but from I observed, the first one to go was the Defensive Coordinator! His brother! Look at the score board!

  37. AtheistsareIdiots says: Sep 16, 2016 1:43 PM

    Ryans are inept and hire inept coaches. After watching Romans vanilla offense in SF flop, it’s no surprise. The Bills scored garbage points..

    The true flops are the Ryans. How they have jobs in the NFL flabbergasts me..and Drew Brees

  38. pondbridge says: Sep 16, 2016 1:45 PM

    Owner: Rex, you have to fire one of your coordinators.
    Coach Tootsie: OK, I know who goes– the guy who almost pulled out the game.

  39. johnnyjagfan says: Sep 16, 2016 1:46 PM

    Does Rex have a brother who coaches offense?

  40. jvw1982 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:46 PM

    How do you fire you’re OC two games into the season? If you had that little confidence in his abilities how did you not replace him before the summer? If I’m ownership I would let Rex do what he wants because if things are poor come week 10 he’s gone and I give his Bro the job just to throw salt in his wounds, then clear house at the end of the yr….

    Offense scores 31 points against the Jets and he’s the one gone? Guess Rob Ryan was too fat to throw under the bus.

  44. bbking0420 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:47 PM

    Bring back Doug Marrone and Jim Schwartz 4-3 defense!

  45. valentino8100 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:48 PM

  47. intrafinesse says: Sep 16, 2016 1:48 PM

    As a Jets fan I’m sad they did this.
    I don’t want Rex fired, I want him to stay in Buffalo and ruin them the way he did the Jets.

    Firing Roman will solidify Rex getting fired.

    The Bills got a couple of nice TDs on bombs, plus other points, so they did fine.

    If you watched the game, you saw Fitzpatrick making many passes to wide open Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.

    The Bills may improve once the clean out Rex.

  48. militantgod says: Sep 16, 2016 1:49 PM

    Of course they fired the wrong coordinator (the talk of Rob Ryan as a good DC is a joke, he was horrid with the Raiders for all those years) but guys please stop screaming “the offense scored 31 points last night” because they didn’t. 7 points came from a defensive TD, 2 TDs came from complete defensive breakdowns (2 plays combined for 160 yards, that’s just horrible D/fluke) and another came late in the game when the Jets were in prevent D.

    raider fans lol

    allow me to explain:

    the Bills scored 31 points last night (against the Jets), and 7 in the previous game, totaling 38.

    need I say more?

  51. spillertime21 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:51 PM

    He should have been fired during the game last night when the bills ran the option.
    Seriously, they ran the option in an NFL game

  52. dohczeppelin says: Sep 16, 2016 1:51 PM

    Why stop with him? Hate to say it but this team is garbage. I will never forgive Rex for what he did to our defense, which was one of the best in the league before he arrived and blew it up so that he could make it “his” defense. He’s an arrogant and loud mouthed fool who makes me feel embarrassed to be a Bills fan every time he opens his mouth.

    I had high hopes after last season that an off-season of cohesion and development would allow this team to take the next step and at least begin contending for a wild card with a certain degree of reliability or maybe even challenge an aging Brady for the division but that does not appear to be the case.

    Whatever. It’s the Bills. We will get a high draft pick next year, and get a boost from having our first and second picks from this year come back from injury. Hopefully Rex will be gone by that point and someone competent can start building a team out of this once promising roster that isn’t so maddening to follow. Maybe someday things will be different, but for now, it’s the same old Bills as far as I’m concerned.

  53. duffelbagsports says: Sep 16, 2016 1:53 PM

    Rex needs to rethink kissing Belichik rings. It’s the closest he’ll get to having one

  54. helldog33 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:53 PM

    Ryan is on a roll. He should fire the guy that stirs the Gatorade powder into the sideline cooler because he too is responsible for the Bills giving up 37 points last night.

  55. 345snarkavenue says: Sep 16, 2016 1:53 PM

    as I said a while back:

    I’d rather my team have Belichick as head coach, hiring his son, than Rex, hiring his brother.

  56. pats777 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:53 PM

    Rob Ryan has completely ruined 3 good defenses now. Amazing.

  57. todd6162 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:55 PM

    Just the beginning

  58. psousa1 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:55 PM

    At this rate if the Bills defense gives up 40 next week Tyrod Taylor is going get benched.

    Obviously Greg Roman and Rob Ryan must have had a beef so you know who would win that one.

  59. llojac1 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:55 PM

    Rex should have fired his brother & the DC.

    ________________________________

    Rob is only the assistant, not the DC. And our defense wasn’t good when he got here anyways. It was amazing in 2014 but pretty awful in 2015, meaning the honors for ruining our defense goes to Rex. Rob merely helped finish shoveling the dirt in on top of the grave.

  61. jeffcfalcon says: Sep 16, 2016 1:56 PM

    They could have sent Greg Roman down here to Atlanta and would we gladly give them Kyle Shannahan

  62. buffalosunshine says: Sep 16, 2016 1:56 PM

    just so everyone is aware… Rob Ryan is not the defensive coordinator.. He should still be fired but he isn’t in charge of the Defense.

  64. kgun80 says: Sep 16, 2016 1:59 PM

    Roman deserved to be fired. The points scored last night weren’t a product of his play calling. They were fluke plays where Tyrod scrambled and made a play down field. He deserved to be fired just for calling a QB sneak on 3rd and 1 and then lining up in a heavy set on 4th and 1 against arguably the best Dline in the NFL. No creativity, multiple tight end sets with no one running down the seam a 9 million $ TE that he uses for dump offs and edge blocking.
    Hopefully this is only the first domino and we fire Whaley and Rex and his fat sister.

  65. threalwash says: Sep 16, 2016 2:00 PM

    I’m not sure this is fair to Rob. Rex took the #4 defense and turned it into the #24 defense last year.

  67. sdcharger123 says: Sep 16, 2016 2:03 PM

    So they fired their offensive coordinator for putting up 31 points and almost 400 yards, but not the defensive coordinator for allowing 37 points. Right…

  68. jackedupboonie says: Sep 16, 2016 2:04 PM

    I feel sorry for Bills fans.

  69. khenien says: Sep 16, 2016 2:04 PM

    I am so sorry you Bills fans have to go through this. Don’t worry it will all be over soon.

  70. jmc8888 says: Sep 16, 2016 2:05 PM

    Wow, the Bills are in trouble. If you are firing an OC two games into the season, after they put up 31 points, then that just reeks of desperation.

    If your team gets 31 points against a Jets defense, and yet gives up 38 points, it’s not the OC that should be getting the heat and being fired.

    It’s true they’ve scored 38 points in 2 games. Their defense though, has given up 51 points in 2 games.

    Well it looks like the Ryan’s will be out of work again this offseason.

    Now how will their replacement OC find a way to outscore AZ in week 3?

  71. finfansince68 says: Sep 16, 2016 2:07 PM

    It was just a move to get Rob closer to the Defensive Coordinator seat…should be fully implemented by week 4 against those hated Patriots!

  72. bishopbengals says: Sep 16, 2016 2:07 PM

    Uh, Dennis Thurman is the defensive coordinator guys. It’s amazing that so many of you think Rob is.

  73. greymares says: Sep 16, 2016 2:07 PM

    Can’t blame Roman but running Shady in the “A” gap was far from a brilliant call. Lol.

  74. pau49ers says: Sep 16, 2016 2:08 PM

    Hey Rex, it’s YOUR DEFENSE that’s the problem. This defense has regressed every year you have been there. Aren’t you a defensive guru? I guess you couldn’t blame the lack of success on Mario Williams this time.

    I will say this though. I’m a Niners fan and I HATED Greg Roman when he was our offensive coordinator.

  75. kevpft says: Sep 16, 2016 2:11 PM

    This is why bad teams stay bad. Overreaction.

    Despite all the Ryan jokes, the Jets and Bills are almost even in terms of overall talent and potential. But one is a neurotic train wreck and the other is just plodding ahead methodically.

    Is Rex right for this team? Who knows. But mature teams build things, they don’t just tear them apart again and again and again. When you fire your OC after 2 games, it means the people who hired the OC have failed.

  76. dohczeppelin says: Sep 16, 2016 2:11 PM

    For the remainder of this season I will be diverting the majority of my attention to my fantasy team and the Steelers, two activities that are actually fun. I will go to the game I have tickets for and watch the rest of the Bills games because it’s hard to look away from a train wreck, but man, it is getting really difficult to muster any enthusiasm for this team. Year after year of disappointment.

    Football teams are just logos on the sides of helmets in the modern era where entire rosters churn every 3-5 years save for a handful of players so it’s just getting statistically unreasonable at this point for them to still be this bad. I’m a grown man and the Bills haven’t been relevant since I was a young child. Sigh. Oh well.

    When did the Jets stop being a train wreck and begin plodding ahead methodically? When they fired their last idiot coach, who coincidentally is the head of the currently flailing Bills. I take your point about overreaction, but some people just aren’t cut out for the job. And when they make that painfully obvious for you in real time, you would be a fool to ignore that.

    Pay closer attention. Roman was awful in a multitude of areas, play calling among them. Greg never adjusted, he never had plays in the huddle on time and was awful in situational scenarios.

    He is 1 cog in this machine that One Bills Drive needs to purge. Rob needs to go next!

  86. Slapshot says: Sep 16, 2016 2:25 PM

    Buffalo ownership, who hired the Ryan brothers, is at fault here. Their head coach underachieves, no matter what team he is coaching. His defensive coordinator, in dire need of a haircut, has no clue on how to stop opposing offenses, no matter what team he is coaching.

  87. getyourownname says: Sep 16, 2016 2:27 PM

    What’s amazing is that there are still, I’m pretty sure, some people in Baltimore that wish Rex had been hired as Head Coach, and many more that hope he will return as DC.

  88. michaele11111 says: Sep 16, 2016 2:29 PM

    Longtime Jets fan here … Wrecks Ryan. You own him. Hahahahaha, Jets get the last laugh even if we hadn’t won the game!

  89. EJ says: Sep 16, 2016 2:34 PM

    Besides the occasional big play, Buffalo’s Offense couldn’t move the ball up the field. That is why Greg Roman was fired. Lets not forget that his game plan is quite lackluster… He was running screen plays with Charles Clay! You have an all around weapon in Sammy Watkins, who’s not getting the ball… a great possession receiver in Robert Woods and you are not using him for his ability to move the sticks?… A split back in Reggie Bush that is known for making plays in open space and you run him up the gut?… A star RB in LeSean McCoy, who could dice up a defense running and pass catching, so you use him sparingly? A bruising backup RB in Mike Gillislee that can wear the defense down, but you have him sitting most of the game? A tough, tall and athletic TE in Clay and you have him catching passes behind the line instead of deep plays and redzone shots?
    That is the reason Greg Roman was fired.

  90. connfyoozed says: Sep 16, 2016 2:36 PM

    I think that a line from Bob Uecker as Harry Doyle in “Major League” is the best way to describe this move:

    “Well, obviously they’re thinking…. actually I have no idea what they’re thinking!”

  91. irvfin3 says: Sep 16, 2016 2:36 PM

    The Bills organization is just stupid as a whole. Doug Marrone shouldn’t have been fired for Rex and I’m a Jets fan. Buffalo was doomed the moment Rob became the DC.

  92. superpatriotsfan says: Sep 16, 2016 2:38 PM

    Just like the Bills, lots of kneejerk reactions in the comments. What you idiots don’t realize is that offense has been bad the past 2 games. Yes they put up 31 pts against the Jets D but 14 of those were off blown coverages, another 7 on a fumble and another 7 from garbage time. Defense was bad but when the offense was only on the field for 20 minutes of the entire game yyour offense sucks. The defense was so winded by half time they didn’t have it in them for the rest of the game.

  93. unclebluck says: Sep 16, 2016 2:43 PM

  94. saaladin says: Sep 16, 2016 2:44 PM

    People saying the offense wasn’t the problem clearly haven’t watched the last two games.

    Our offense is ugly and we don’t even run basic plays we also dont use most of the field.

    The Bills basically 4 plays.

    1. Jet Sweep left
    2. Read option then pass it to the flat
    3. Read option and watch Shady dance around 3 unblocked defenders.
    4. Long bomb to whoever is running a 9 route

  95. firecracker87 says: Sep 16, 2016 2:45 PM

    “The Bills are 0-2 and starting down a part of the schedule which isn’t conducive to turning things around quickly, with games against the Cardinals and Patriots on the horizon.
    ———————————————————————

    Basically, any team that plays that Bills defense has an extra bye week this season.

    Speaking of not being able to look away from a train rex – I would love to have seen what Tom Brady would have done to that defense in week 4.

    Wait a minute. G Ro’s offense was ranked 12 in points last year and 13 in yards. That is impressive for the 1st year of offense installation. Then the Bills fire him after his offense scores 31 points????

    Roman is the best running game coordinator in football next to Bill Callahan. He is the perfect OC for a defensive minded Head Coach. Espiceally one who likes to “ground and pound”. I doubt this came from Rex Ryan. He had to be pressured to fired him. Nobody who knows football and is in their right mind would fire a coach like Gregg Roman. NFL front offices need more patience. It’s takes an average of three years to build a team unless you have a hall of fame QB. To fire an OC, two games into his 2nd season, after having close to a top 10 offense is insane.

    It’s not so much the firing of Greg Roman that perplexes me as anyone who knows Roman knows his offensive schemes are pretty vanilla but its the fact Rex can’t find fault with the defense because his brother is the coach of it. I shake my head in astonishment at Rexy which is truly saying something seeing as the team I cheer for is coached by Mr. Jeffrey Fisher.

    After his previous coaching stints, would any NFL head coach in his right mind have ever hired Rob Ryan other than kin? I wonder if old Robby knows he’s in the last days of his last NFL job.

  101. tedmurph says: Sep 16, 2016 2:56 PM

    If they had a ring ceremony and a parade for the Offseason Championship, I think everyone would feel a lot better.

    Don’t worry, if Ryan’s Bills manage to beat the Garappolo led Patrions in a couple of weeks, he’ll declare himself Coach of the Year.

  102. superpatriotsfan says: Sep 16, 2016 2:58 PM

    I feel bad for Bills fans, they are quite loyal unlike Pats fans.

    On the brighter side, Roman now has a head start on the OC jobs that will be opening later this year.

  105. realfootballfan says: Sep 16, 2016 3:15 PM

    That’s been a hard fall. He was the apparent shoe in for the Jacksonville job when Dave Caldwell became GM, but SF was actually good back then, so he had to coach through the playoffs. Now, he’s been on the wrong end of the daughter Baalke’s tweets on the way to getting kicked out the door there and now this. Ouch.

  106. motsuret06 says: Sep 16, 2016 3:23 PM

    This is what you get when you hire Wrecks Ryan as a Head Coach. He was a joke with the Jets and he is the same with the bills. If the Bills continue to swoon, he will be the one who will be fired.

  107. rogdodger says: Sep 16, 2016 3:34 PM

    If we could somehow get Rex Ryan, Rob Ryan, Jeff Fischer and Norv Turner on a team together,it would be the “how do they have a job” team and guaranteed to be mediocre at best.

  108. 12brichandfamous says: Sep 16, 2016 3:38 PM

    Chris Carter whispered in Wreck’s ear: “you need a fall guy.”

    The Bills organization is just stupid as a whole. Doug Marrone shouldn’t have been fired for Rex and I’m a Jets fan. Buffalo was doomed the moment Rob became the DC.

    I don’t know about this one. The defense was like swiss cheese after the 1st quarter, and the offense did have some big plays. On the other hand, they either called runs up the middle or 30+ yard passes all night. Some of it was Taylor, who has happy feet and flees the pocket too easily. He also has no touch and can be inaccurate on short/medium passes. McCoy is looking closer to done than ever, with his dancing around. Not sure what the answer is, but they just aren’t good enough all around.

    It’s time to burn down the city and fill in the Erie canal.
    Firing co-coordinators is no longer enough.

    Dude either brought warm beer to the coaches meeting or made a lap band joke to Rob Ryan.

    Ratbird fans were thumping their chests because they hung a sweet 13 points on “one of the best D’s in the league”.

    Every defense that Rob Ryan touches dies.

  118. Brian Price says: Sep 16, 2016 4:14 PM

    Anyone commenting, “how could the Bills fire their offensive coordinator after scoring 31 points?” either doesn’t understand football or didn’t watch the game.

    The team is giving their best player, McCoy less than 20 carries a game and constantly running from the shotgun or not using him on 3rd/4th and short. The play calling has been terrible, uncreative and predictable.

    That being said, the defense is awful, but missing key players to suspension. Rex did take a top-five defense and make them average, but the Bills offense, believe it or not, has been worse than the defense.

    Also, Rob isn’t the defensive coordinator, so please educate yourself before posting.

    McCoy’s fourth down run sealed his fate.

  121. fwippel says: Sep 16, 2016 5:04 PM

    I would have thought the defensive coordinator would be the first to go.

    After putting up 31 points? What did they fire him for, the Baltimore game?

  122. draculalambert says: Sep 16, 2016 5:29 PM

  125. npadln says: Sep 16, 2016 7:18 PM

    There are two NFL cities that I am always checking the local media about. New England and Buffalo. The one thing I notice about both is how different their appraisals are compared to how the national media views these teams’ strengths and shortcomings. Same goes for fans of other teams compared to the actual fans of these two teams. When I listen to the Buffalo media about Tyrod what I get is a story about a guy who can’t throw over the middle, can’t do read progressions, has a big arm for the deep ball but has no touch for the short ones. The Buffalo offense sucked for a whole lot of reason last night and the high score doesn’t reflect that. If they’d won then great; they got away with one. But they didn’t so the problems remain and they fired the coach because they are desperate and they aren’t ready to give up on Tyrod…. just yet.

  126. campcouch says: Sep 16, 2016 11:45 PM

    Exactly what in the franchise’s past 15 year history has warranted such a high level of expectations? A good defense for a couple of years? New owners? Rex Ryan? There’s no missing piece to get them to the next level. It’s a middling team with a like minded coach. Thinking way too highly of this squad.

  127. gizzmonic says: Sep 17, 2016 11:08 AM

    Rex used to be a fat zero with a perverted foot fetish. Now he is a surgically modified zero with perverted a foot fetish. 86 this tool out of the NFL!
