Former NFL Coach & Defensive Coordinator Buddy Ryan Dies At 82

Former NFL Coach & Defensive Coordinator Buddy Ryan Dies At 82

Rex and Rob Ryan have a longer fuse, understanding how to stay employed in a world of social media and entitled athletes. He began by helping coach the New York Jets to a Super Bowl III win, and would later go on to coach with the Chicago Bears, who would hold the New England Patriots to a mere 10 points in a Bears victory at Super Bowl XX.

Ryan is the father of Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan and Bills assistant head coach Rob Ryan.

After molding the Minnesota Vikings famed "Purple People Eaters" Ryan was hired on with the Chicago Bears and in 1985 created his masterpiece.

Fisher was a player under Ryan on the 1985 Chicago Bears but sustained a season-ending injury during training camp. "But hopefully, he can see this one, because we have got big plans". The most famous was when he was with the Houston Oilers and took a swing at fellow assistant coach, offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride on the sidelines during a game. Well, his third and oldest son, Jim Ryan, made the choice to not get involved with professional football-something his dad told all his sons to do, though Jim clearly didn't listen. Ryan and head coach Mike Ditka often feuded during that 15-1 season and Super Bowl run. Buddy is the architect of the "46 Defense" which, according to Wikipedia, is named for the number worn by Bears safety Doug Plank, which produced an National Football League record 72 sacks in 1984, a record that still stands today. And you can never say how much you appreciate it. Having the opportunity to go back the couple years and sit down with Buddy and look into his eyes, knowing that there's so much that he wants to communicate but he really can't, it's just very hard to put into words. You loved playing for him because he coached the way you wanted to play the game: attack mode. "Let's kick some tail", Ryan said.

Smug India spoilt by West: Chinese media
Chinese spokesperson also dismissed the perception that China was exclusively responsible for blocking India's inclusion into NSG. Instead, the statement said the countries "continue promoting the shared goals of nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation".

Ryan may have only coached for the Eagles for five seasons, but he clearly left a lasting impression on Philadelphia.

ESPN'S Mike Golic, who played with the Eagles under Ryan: "It's a tough, physical, rough game...." A year earlier, Philadelphia routed the Cowboys 27-0 on Thanksgiving Day with hardly any holiday feelings in the air.

Ryan coached the Cardinals for two seasons beginning in 1994, amassing a 12-20 record. Rex and Rob have carried on his legacy.

Oh, but we said Buddy Ryan had three sons, didn't we?
