Rex and Rob Ryan are brothers, coaches on the Buffalo Bills, and now, weight loss partners.


The New York Post reported Monday that head coach Rex, who had lap-band surgery in 2010, recently had the band removed in solidarity with his assistant head coach Rob, who had the surgery in 2012 but suffered complications from it. The two of them plan to watch what they eat, together:

“I told him, we’ll figure this out together (without the Lap Band),’’ Ryan said. “Plus, I won more games without it than did with it in.’’

The rambunctious football twins are going to have to monitor their consumption of vanilla bean frappucinos, personal pizzas, stacked brewskies, and all other delicious foodstuffs. Expect Bills practices to get tougher with these two hangry boys.
