The Buffalo Bills social media team decided to swipe New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh’s “All Gas, No Brake” motto on Sunday.
Oh, it’s on now. There’s no other way an incoming coaching staff can view it.
Early Sunday afternoon, the Buffalo Bills social media team posted an “All Gas, No Brakes” graphic featuring Taron Johnson, Tre’Davious White, John Brown and Stefon Diggs ahead of their AFC championship game matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The graphic comes just four days after Robert Saleh used the mantra at his introductory press conference and social media took to it more naturally than Vince Lombardi took to coaching.
“All gas, no brake.”
The new Jets mantra.

Saleh, 41, arrives in Northern New Jersey with Mike LaFleur as his offensive coordinator. Mike’s brother, Matt LaFleur, is the Green Bay Packers head coach and a man whom Saleh served as the best man at his wedding.
Matt LaFleur has been known to also use the “All Gas, No Brake” mantra, but Saleh has recently made it clear that he’s in the clear to use it. Apparently, the mantra has been around the two men for quite some time. They met each other and became close to one another while both coaching at Central Michigan in 2004.
To be fair to the Bills, they have also used the mantra on social media from time to time in the past. In late December 2018, a social media video referenced the mantra as it related to Jerry Hughes.
He's all gas with no brakes and brings it every single day.

Nonetheless, it’s incredibly interesting that the Bills, a team in the AFC championship game, would craft a social media graphic nearly mirroring what Jets outlets constructed following Thursday’s introductory press conference. You’d think only the AFC championship game would be the concern on this day.
With this, the Saleh hire and the Deshaun Watson rumors heating up, the AFC East is becoming a must-watch division heading into the 2021 offseason and eventual season.
