Rob Ryan uses walk-up song at Bills team meeting

Dallas Cowboys v New Orleans Saints

Those Ryan brothers, they’re never boring.

Bills linebacker Lorenzo Alexander, who’s second the NFL with seven sacks, told the <a href=”” target=”_blank”>MMQB</a> that Bills assistant coach Rob Ryan used a walk-up song when installing a play at a team meeting.

Ryan, brother of head coach Rex Ryan, was introducing a play called Boat One. So he played a “Saturday Night Live” parody called “I’m on a Boat” with rapper T-Pain.

The video contains vulgar <a href=”” target=”_blank”>language</a> even if some of the words used probably have been used by the Ryans inside the walls of Bills headquarters.

It’s hard to imagine a member of Bill Belichick’s staff using walk-up music while preparing for an upcoming opponent.

“What coach does that? I’ve never been around that,” said Alexander, who has been on five different teams in his 11-year career. “They keep it light and fun.”

Football is a lot more fun for the Bills now than it was three weeks ago when they were 0-2. Since then they’ve won three straight games. If the Bills end their 17-year playoff drought, a lot more people will hear about this “I’m on a Boat” story. If not, Rex and Rob Ryan could be off the boat in Buffalo and looking for a job next season.
