Buffalo Bills head man Rex Ryan is at it again allowing more truth to trickle out of his mouth concerning is end in New York as Jets coach.

By Robby Sabo

On Friday, Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan decided to act himself. The way all of New York is accustomed to.

Brash, confident and with an overwhelming sense of a “I don’t give a damn” type attitude.

In his latest words with the football world, Ryan eluded about how he knew 2014 would be his last with the New York Jets, via Rich Cimini of ESPN New York.

“I knew we weren’t going to have a good team when we never did anything in free agency. I knew that,” Ryan told Andrea Kremer in a sitdown interview that will air next week on HBO’s “Real Sports.”

“Oh, I was done,” he said. “One-hundred percent, I knew I was done. One-hundred percent.”

Ryan also told Kamer that he went to management about signing Darrelle Revis and DeSean Jackson via free agency, but then general manager John Idzik wouldn’t stray from his strict, low-budget plan.

He also mentioned how owner Woody Johnson loved him.

“Yeah, I know Woody wanted to keep me,” Ryan said in the interview. “We talked like brothers. I know Woody never wanted to fire me. I could’ve been his coach for 20 years. That’s what Woody wanted. There’s no question Woody wanted that.”

Asked if there was a scenario in which Johnson could’ve kept him, Ryan said, “Maybe, but I’ll tell you this: He couldn’t do it. There’s no chance he could’ve brought in another GM and kept me again. There’s no way. It wouldn’t have never worked in New York. They weren’t going to allow it. The media wasn’t going to allow it. It wasn’t going to work.”

As usual, Rex is looking to steal the spotlight prior to the 2015 season. It seems the Geno Smith, IK Enemkpali incident isn’t going to upstage Rex in Buffalo.

Stay tuned, there will certainly be more to come.
