2. Another young quarterback to groom

After failing to get fulfill the promise of both Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith, Ryan now takes a turn trying to groom 2013 first-rounder E.J. Manuel, who was benched early in the 2014 season in favor of journeyman Kyle Orton. Bills ownership made it known they wanted a coach that would help develop Manuel. So Rex, you’re up.

Ryan’s hire becomes that much more interesting because of this. The Bills had interviewed 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman and Chargers offensive coordinator Frank Reich in an effort to find an  offensive-minded head coach. Ryan is quite the opposite.

Nathaniel Hackett is still listed as the Bills’ offensive coordinator. The question is for how much longer.
