Rex Ryan addressed the team this week in advance of Week 1, a week that we profiled as a very successful one for Ryan in his time as a head coach in the NFL on Buffalobills.com. TE Matthew Mulligan, who has been with Ryan for a couple of his previous openers, laid out what the message from Rex was this week.
“His message was of confidence, but for me what I took out of it was how we’re one team,” Mulligan told Buffalobills.com. “We are not going to play as individuals. We are going to play as a collective unit and that’s how we’re going to win games this year. We’re going to all buy into one thing and know that it’s for the betterment of the team whatever we’re doing. That to me speaks volumes.
“We can talk about guys on an individual basis. We’ve got some crazy good athletes and players here where you can do that. He doesn’t do that. He’s like, ‘We’re a team. It doesn’t matter if you’re at the top of the roster or the bottom. We’re all part of the 53 and then you have the practice squad guys who are just as important too. But we’re going to work together and that’s how we’re going to win.’’
