RIP Buddy Ryan

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately it was reported this morning Buddy Ryan has passed at the age of 82. As we all know, in 1968 he moved to the Jets and helped them win Super Bowl III.

I loved the Buddy Ryan style. Loved watching the Bears defense crush the patsies and later watching the Eagles become a major foe. Rex Ryan IMO was saddled with terrible GM's here in NY. They were cheap jerks that couldn't pick talent to save their lives. It was bad GM's that cost Rex his job in NY. If you gave this guy the talent, he would make something of it.

Buddy Ryan was a terrific defensive coordinator. RIP

Too bad Rex stained the family rep.

Buddy and Rex were both genius DCs who made for so-so head coaches

That Super Bowl III Defense was  one of the best ever. The Jets D was there for a while. Namath had to grow up and he did. Buddy was a great NFL character. The 85 Bears will always be remembered I really enjoyed the way they waxed the Pats that day.

Big Perry scored too. RIP Buddy. You will always be remembered.

A different sport but Pat Summitt passed today as well.  

2 absolutely legendary coaches who revolutionized the sport that they made their lives passion.

Sad day

One  of the best coaches ever. If she was in men's sports they have  statues of her.
