On the Bills Playoff Drought

"I'm not going to let our fans down. It's been 15 years since we made the playoffs. We're going."

What the Offense Will Look Like

"Are we going to do ground and pound? Yeah. You're darn right we are. Are we going to throw it? Yeah, we got Sammy Watkins outside, why wouldn't we throw it? This team, we know how loaded we are with talent."

High Expectations for the Defense

"I know we'll lead the league in defense. That's just the way it goes."

Building a Bully

"We're gonna build a bully and see if you want to play against us for 60 minutes."

"We're not going to get pushed around. I can promise you that. We will not be pushed around. In fact, we're going to be the bullies."

On E.J. Manuel/Bills Quarterback Situation

On Manuel: "I feel like he has a lot of traits that you look for in a quarterback. He's smart he's dedicated. I think he has movement skills. I'd like to see him use his legs more than he has." 

That said, Ryan stressed that wins and losses don't just come down to the quarterback.

"It's not just about one man, it's about every man."

Mark Sanchez was mentioned as a potential free agent addition and Ryan simply stated, "He'll be a guy under consideration."

On How Badly He Wants a Shot at the Jets

"I'll be honest. It's the Patriots that I want the most."
