Rex Ryan, Rob Ryan rock throwback Bills jerseys at Combine (pics)


Rex Ryan and Rob Ryan made a grand entrance at the NFL Scouting Combine on Friday in Indianapolis, Ind., something that hardly should come as surprise given their larger-than-life personalities … and in Rob’s case, a larger-than-average belly.

Rex and Rob, the dynamic duo who are now colleagues after the Buffalo Bills head coach (Rex) hired his out-of-work brother (Rob) to his staff — after saying it would be “fun” — as the assistant head coach for defense, rolled into the Combine rocking throwback Bills jerseys.

It appears the Ryan brothers are making sure they’re staying highly caffeinated given what appears to be the coffee drinks their carrying. No word on whether the brothers will follow the itinerary from their Combine visit a few years back when the two paid a visit to a local Hooter’s outpost. Odds are they just might.

Regarding Ryan’s decision to hire Rob certainly features some semblance of nepotism, which is a good thing, given Rex once said his brother’s long hair and big belly were holding him back.

And just for the fun of it, how about a few pictures from the Ryan brothers from way back when, starting with one from their college graduation.


Oh, and this one, too:


Good stuff. Nay, great stuff.
