Rob Ryan’s reputation on the line
When Bills Head Coach Rex Ryan hired on his brother as an assistant head coach/defense and head turned and some wondered aloud if this would help a defense that was lackluster last season. Ryan’s last three stops had failed defenses and he has not been able to get back to his 2006 Oakland Raiders defense which ranked third in yards allowed. Last season as a part of the New Orleans Saints, Ryan’s defense allowed the most points in NFL history.
The Bills face the New York Giants on Saturday. The Giants also lost their preseason opener and are expected to play their starters a bit more this game.
A Stadium Note, the official name has been changed from Ralph Wilson Stadium to New Era Field after completing a seven year, $35 million deal with the New Era Cap Co.

Former Buffalo Bill veteran linebacker Brandon Spikes has resigned with the team after rookie linebacker Reggie Ragland went down with an knee injury. Spikes last played in Buffalo in 2014 and was cut last year by the New England Patriots.
“I’m not real sure,” Head Coach Rex Ryan said about Ragland. “I guess I was just so hopeful there’s not going to be ligament things. My understanding is that as you get going, your leg is so tight, they’ll fight it. You don’t really get a true look of that. So as we mentioned, we got to wait for that swelling to go down. I know every Bills fan out there is hoping for the best, and that’s certainly what we’re doing, but there is concern.”

The Buffalo Bills hit nearly all their marks and filled nearly every need they had going into the 2016 season especially with Reggie Ragland in the second round, which the Bills traded their original 2nd round pick and two fourth round picks to move up to get him. Ragland is undoubtedly one of the, if not the top linebacker prospect.
Their first round selection, Shaq Lawson, the 19th overall selection and Ragland give them two players that will make an immediate impact on the team.
“We had some holes. We had to make it over. If we didn’t, we’d be going into the season with nobody,” GM Doug Whaley said. “And we’re very excited with how we filled those holes.”
