The Bills players heard the reports that Rex Ryan’s job was in jeopardy, but they insist through the past couple of weeks they were able to focus on their jobs.
In an appearance on the John Murphy Show in the wake of Ryan’s firing, Jerome Felton said he saw teammates who were committed to their jobs on and off the field.
“The last few weeks we heard a lot about it,” he said. “We tried to focus on winning football games. You could tell. We played tough against Miami, they’re a good team, but we didn’t get it done in the end. It wasn’t a case of this is what we’re hearing so there’s no reason to play hard. We tried to win every game and some we won and some we lost. In the end it wasn’t good enough.
“I didn’t think we looked at it like we were playing for Rex’s job. Everybody is playing for their own job every week in the NFL. It’s a tough business. I don’t know if we were worried about that. We were worried about executing the game plan and trying to win a football game and put ourselves in a good position. Sometimes we did that, sometimes we didn’t and it wasn’t good enough this year.”
