Jim Kelly says he and Rex Ryan are “all good”

AP

Bills Hall of Famer Jim Kelly said a few weeks ago that Rex Ryan has to make the playoffs or else he’ll get fired. Ryan didn’t exactly sound thrilled about that, although he wisely avoided getting into a war of words with the most popular player in franchise history.

Privately, Ryan and Kelly have communicated, and Kelly says there are no problems between the two of them.

“Yeah, we already texted,” Kelly said, via Sal Capaccio of WGR 550. “That’s all good.”

It might seem a little inelegant for a player of Kelly’s stature to talk about his former team’s coach getting fired, but Kelly was probably right: Ryan had better win this year, or else Kelly will be talking about a different Bills coach next year.

  1. Kelly isn’t “probably” right he is certainly right. As for why Kelly commented in the first place, it pretty clear that anyone that cares about the bills is horrified that a cartoon character like “wrecks” is still the head coach

  2. Jim certainly is blessed that he wasn’t on such a short leash. He would’ve lost just 2 Super Bowls if he were.

  3. I have a buddy that is the most hard core Bills fan I know. He told me last year that he can’t watch the Bills until Ryan gets fired. I believe him.

  4. Kelly is in no position to tell anyone about winning football. 0-4 in the SB tells it all. That record will never be broken.

    Seriously? He went to the Super Bowl 4 years in a row. No one has EVER done that. Hell, no one else has done it 3 times, I don’t think. He was one of the top QBs in the league for quite a while. Was he THE best? Nope. But to say he doesn’t know about winning is assanine. The guy owns a 101-59 record, 60.1% completion and a 237-175 TD/INT ratio.

    Dude is a HoF’er and took his team to 4 in a row.
    A little respect goes a long way.

  7. No matter how many times you print that Rex will be fired for a non-playoff season doesn’t make it true.

    Firing a coach after 2 seasons is plain stupid.

    Pete Carroll went 7-9 his first 2 years with the Hawks. Guess they should have fired him too?

  8. In case anyone was wondering, I, as a Patriot fan, will never stop bitching and whining about the corrupt deflategate saga. Anytime a story comes out about a player getting punished, I will compare it to Brady’s injustice. I will never stop. Ever. Everything will be about the Patriots getting screwed. Every response. Every second of every day 24/7

    Calm down both of you… Jim may have done, what he had to do, to save his father from the mob…. and his gambling depts.

    He is a good Son.

  10. Anyone who is even a tad familiar with the owners of the Buffalo Bills knows that Jim Kelly is 100% wrong.

    Merely not making the playoffs in year two is not a firing offense. There would have to be something much more than that.

  11. That schedule!

    They’ll lose on weeks 1, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, 14, 17 to end with a 7-9 record at best.

    Wrecks and his bro should start filing for un-employment so it kicks in by the end of December.

  12. This is Buffalo you don’t have to make the playoffs to keep your job. If he can get to 8 wins this year he should be ok. Then the next year he’ll have to make the playoffs to keep it. @doubleheaderjay

  13. Jim must be losing some mental capacity, the damage has been done… it’s either a AFC East Title or syanora! I just think they’ll be battlin Miami in the AFCE cellar for a better draft pick in 2017. Remember it’s Rex’s mouth & ego that’s sunk him..not to mention hiring his dim-witted buffet slayin brother.

  14. Best rushing offense with a defense that ended up last after being the best, maybe this season the Bills can get it together on both sides of the ball.

  15. Bring in Tom Coughlin. Rex is in not a head coach, he is a defensive coordinator.

    The Rex Ryan hatred among bills fans is comical. He and wade Phillips are the only reputable head coaches they have ever had.

    What year were you born in? 1990?

  17. Just fire the big mouth now and save the embarrassment! They will never be in the playoffs with wrecks!! Now you even have his idiot want-to-be defensive coordinator, brother!

    He is far from a die hard Bills fan. If you don’t know, a die hard Bills fans doesn’t miss a snap. smh

    The team went 8-8 last year. All I care about is the product on the field. They are not far away from being a playoff team. If they don’t make it, Rex is a goner. Just sucks that I have no confidence in Sammy playing more than half the season. Hope I am wrong, but we arent going anywhere without him.

    In what universe did the Bills defense end up last? And in what universe was it “the best”?

    Do you guys ever base anything on actual statistics?

    The Bills had the #1 rushing offense last year….

    Tom Brady is halfway to losing 4 super bowls!

    What does that have to do with the claim that Rex took the Bills defense from “the best” to “last”?

  24. If you put lipstick on a pig – it’s still a pig…Rex need’s to face reality and go back to being a DC, however it’ll be doubtful with that ego cause he’d clash with any HC. I see a future as an ESPN NFL analyst …stay tuned

  25. ” … he wisely avoided getting into a war of words with the most popular player in franchise history.”

    Mmmm … i thought OJ was the most popular player in bill’s history … pretty sure the largest contingent, outside of downtown LA, of ‘he didn’t do it’ is in WNY …

  26. Cmon rex. You have stars at every level of the team. Ragland was a great pick to lead the defense. But you absolutely have to generate a pass rush this year. No excuses.
