There were admittedly problems under Rex Ryan when it came to substitutions, getting play calls in on time, penalties and missed assignments. It was likely part of the reason he was fired earlier this week. As interim head coach Anthony Lynn steps out to the sidelines today, one thing his players are not worried about is his handling of the details.
“He coached his backs that way last year,” said EJ Manuel of Lynn’s attention to detail. “That’s why we’ve had one of the best rushing attacks the last two years. So he’s definitely all about attention to detail. Even when we’re on scout team he coaches us on the offensive side. Sometimes coaches just let you go and do your thing. But these past 15 weeks he was still coaching the O-line and the running backs. He’s very specific.”
“A-Lynn has played this game before at this level. So he knows the-ins-and-the-outs,” said Richie Incognito. “He’s a super detail-oriented guy. He has high expectations of people, and like he just told us out there on the practice field, he wants us to go out and have fun and he wants us to grind (all week) mentally, and then just let it all loose and just have fun on Sunday. So that’s what we’re focusing on. I have a tremendous amount of respect for A-Lynn. You know he did a really good job when G-Ro (Greg Roman) got fired, stepping in, and I’m excited for this opportunity for him.”
