New Bills coach Rex Ryan guarantees playoff berth
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Introduced as Bills head coach Wednesday, Rex Ryan was his usual blustery self.

“I know it’s been 15 years since the Bills have been to the playoffs,” he said. “Get ready. We’re going. We are going.”

Ryan stopped short of guaranteeing a Super Bowl, saying, “I’ll guarantee the pursuit of it.”

He said his message to the team was simple: “We’re going to be playing games in January and so forth – start preparing that way.”

Ryan professed to be “not concerned at all” about his quarterback situation. Though he did not commit to EJ Manuel as the starter, Ryan said the second-year pro “has a lot of traits you look for in a quarterback.”

Kyle Orton announced his retirement following the season. Asked about a possible reunion with Mark Sanchez, Ryan said the team will explore all options.

The Bills went 9-7 this season, then coach Doug Marrone opted out of his contract.

Bills QB Kyle Orton announces his retirement
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Bills announced that quarterback Kyle Orton has informed the team he's retiring from professional football, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora on Monday.

After being released by the Cowboys in July and contemplating retirement, Orton signed with the Bills at the end of the preseason. He was named the starter over EJ Manuel in Week 5 and led the Bills to a 9-7 season. He threw for 3,018 yards with 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 12 games.

"I just have been going at it for 10 years and it's just a family decision and I've decided to get home and be a dad and call it a day," Orton said in a statement.

Orton, 32, was a fourth-round draft pick by the Bears in 2005. He spent three seasons in Chicago before he took over as the starter for four different teams. His 10-year career ends with a 59.5 completion percentage, 18,037 yards with 101 touchdowns and 69 interceptions in 87 games.

Bills quarterback Kyle Orton went 16 for 23 for 176 yards and a touchdown to lead Buffalo to a 17-9 win over the Patriots Sunday.

Orton threw 18 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions during the year.

Desperation fuels Kyle Orton's performance
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Bills quarterback Kyle Orton didn't have the most efficient day throwing the ball Week 16 at Oakland, but from a Fantasy perspective, it was a productive one. He threw for 329 yards and three touchdowns but also had two interceptions.

What's crazy, though, is that 196 of those yards came in the second half. The Bills were trailing a winnable game with their playoff hopes on the line, and their desperation showed. Unfortunately, that desperation also contributed to the second of Orton's interceptions.

The Bills have been eliminated, so no matter how much they're trailing Week 17 at New England, they probably won't be quite as desperate. You can expect more typical numbers from Orton -- maybe about 250 yards with one or two scores -- even if the matchup appears to be a favorable one, making him a player better left for two-quarterback leagues.
