Rex Ryan didn’t pull any punches. In his opening statement following his team’s 40-32 loss to the Patriots, Buffalo’s head coach put the loss squarely on his shoulders.
“I’m going to tell you exactly like I told our team, this loss is squarely on one man’s shoulders,” he said. “It’s on my shoulders. Yeah we’ve got to get better as a team no question, but I have to get better. Belichick outcoached me, no question about it and that’s how it ended up. It’s unfortunate. The plan has to be better on defense. You can’t give up 500 yards and beat anybody. Then we turn it over three times. But we did a (expletive) job and it’s my responsibility. Our team will get better, but it starts with me getting better and I’m looking forward to next week.”
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick didn’t really buy into Ryan’s comment that he was outcoached.
“No, it’s our players,” said Belichick. “Our players went out there and played. They made the plays ot win the game and I’d say they probably overcame some not so great coaching on my part. I’ll give the credit to our players. They did a good job. They deserve the credit. They’re the ones that made the plays.”
