Former Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan appeared on the morning show “Sunday NFL Countdown" today, calling President Donald Trump's recent comments about the NFL "appalling."
In April 2016, Ryan introduced Trump at a campaign rally in Buffalo and expressed his support for the then-candidate.
Ryan said on Sunday: “Everyone’s always been united. Yeah, the views are different but lemme tell you: I’m pissed off ... I’ll be honest with you. Because I supported Donald Trump. When he asked me to introduce him at a rally in Buffalo, I did that. But I’m reading these comments and it’s appalling to me. Calling our players SOBs and all that kind of stuff, that's not the men that I know — the men in the locker room, I'm proud of and I'm proud to be associated with those people."
Sitting on Ryan's left was Anquan Boldin, who was a part of the Bills for less than two weeks before he retired from the NFL.

Not surprisingly, Twitter erupted after Ryan's comments.
Rex Ryan saying Trump is not what he signed up for is like marrying a giraffe then saying you didn't sign up for the long neck. #TakeTheKnee
