Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan is usually the one making controversial statements but his brother Rob Ryan topped him with a foolish quote on NFL Network. Just one week after getting fired as defensive coordinator by the New Orleans Saints, Rob Ryan said the fan base blamed him for everything. Including Hurricane Katrina.
Ryan is obviously trying to be funny but making light of an event that destroyed a city in a joke that insults the fan base from there is not a good idea. The facts are that he was a poor defensive coordinator for the team and he deserved the firing. There was no reason to try to pass blame while making a statement in poor taste.
Rich Eisen’s face palm after the comment says it all.
