Buddy Ryan, NFL’s combative defensive genius in the history of football, dies at age 82.
Ryan’s death was confirmed by the Buffalo Bills, who also has Rex and Rob Ryan with the staff. Buddy won two Super Bowls with the New York Jets and Chicago Bears. He orchestra arguably the greatest defensive team of all-time in the 85 Bears.
Mike Ditka, an analyst for ESPN, acknowledged his presence as being the heart and soul of that team. Let’s remember him as the one that started trends in having great defenses, which continues to be vital for a team’s chance to win a Super Bowl.
