Rex Ryan fumes with poor Buffalo Bills play after loss to Lions

The Buffalo Bills are in for an interesting 2015 season, to say the very least.

Turnover and Change

The Bills have a new head coach at the helm in former New York Jets man Rex Ryan, as well as the untried and untested Tyrod Taylor in as their starting quarterback and LeSean McCoy in the backfield after his trade from the Philadelphia Eagles.

There's been a fair bit of change in Buffalo over the off season, but Ryan still expects his side to execute smartly, and is going to get angry when they don't.

Sloppy Performance

The Bills’ ended pre-season with a 17-10 loss to the Detroit Lions on Thursday, and the performance was poor, even if only second stringers and backups took to the field.  

The bad night began with an offside penalty committed by the Bills on the opening kickoff at Ford Field, and shockingly, Rexy wasn't too happy with that, and generally much at all with what Buffalo did as they closed the preseason with a 2-2 record.

Ryan was furious and made sure his players knew about it, calling their one of the stupidest he has ever seen in his entire career, according to a report from the Buffalo News.

We did some of the stupidest things I’ve ever seen in football,” Ryan said. “That was awful. … Just some dumb things, so I’m not real happy.”

Simms Blunder

Fourth string quarterback Matt Simms - who was released today as the Bills try to cut down to their final 53 roster - summed the night up with some quarterback play that was up their with the Butt-Fumble at the top of the awful rankings.

Simms was tackled for a loss outside the pocket by a Lions linebacker and proceeded to throw the ball about 10 yards behind himself as he was being spun around. The Lions, unsurprisingly, recovered the fumble.

No wonder Ryan was so annoyed.
