Two weeks into the regular season the Bills lead the league in penalties assessed with 25 after an eye opening 14 for 140 yards. Better team discipline is the obvious aim and head coach Rex Ryan put himself at the top of that list.
“I put it on myself first,” Ryan said. “I think I have to do a better job of staying in control too and this team’s very much like me. But I have to hold myself accountable just like I hold the team accountable and so it starts with me. I’m not going to be as animated or whatever if you will. I’ve got to control my language I think a little bit sometimes on the sideline. I think that’ll help, that’s going to be the first thing and then our team as well.
“We want to be the least penalized team in the league and that’s kind of a goal we’re shooting for moving forward. Probably dead last in the league right now but we want to be the least penalized team.”
Among the penalties called on the Bills last week was a bench penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. Ryan said that penalty was on him for his foul language.
