Rex: We’re not good enough to look past 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers have struggled out of the gate this season. Their 1-4 record is largely due to a lack of playmaking in games by their most talented players. It reached the point where head coach Chip Kelly had to make a change at quarterback, inserting Colin Kaepernick this week. But Bills head coach Rex Ryan said his team is not looking past the next opponent on the schedule at any point this season because they’re not good enough themselves to do that.

“This is a dangerous team, no question about it,” said Ryan of the 49ers. “And let me tell you, I get it we’ve won three games in a row, but we haven’t won four games in a row. We need to focus on this opponent, and believe me we will. If we lose, it’s not going to have anything to do with the fact that we overlooked somebody, that’s not happening here.

“We know, number one we’re not that good. We aren’t good enough to overlook anybody–let alone the 49ers. This is a good football team. They do a lot of stuff on offense man, they challenge you and it’s hard to simulate that kind of tempo that you get and then they are very multiple in the way they attack you. And then on defense, (SF defensive coordinator) Jim O’Neil is dialing them up and doing a lot of different things so the preparation has to be great. The attention to detail has to be great just to give us an opportunity to be successful.”
