Rex references '64 Bills

Jets coach Rex Ryan went way back today in complimenting the Bills' defensive front, particularly rookie defensive lineman Marcell Dareus.

Said Ryan: "Dareus reminds me ... the way he's playing and the way Big Wiggle as I used to call him is playing - Dwan Edwards - they remind me of Ron McDole and Tom Sestak, the No. 70 that used to play in the AFL days."

The Jets rushed for 549 yards on the Bills in two games last year. Would he settle for 200 on Sunday?

"I'll definitely settle for that," Ryan said. "We know it's going to be a big difference. I think the young man from Alabama has mace a huge difference for that football team."

Rex knows about the '60s Bills. His father, Buddy, was defensive coordinator at the University of Buffalo back in 1964. Buddy made the jump to pro football in 1968 when he joined the staff of the New York Jets under coach Weeb Ewbank.
