Quote :
Buddy Ryan, the brash and plain-spoken architect of the '85 Chicago Bears defense and a longtime NFL head coach, died Tuesday, his agent told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. He was 82.

Ryan, the father of Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan and defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, was 55-55-1 in seven seasons as a head coach for the Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals.

But Ryan was perhaps best remembered as the defensive coordinator for the 1985 Bears team that won Super Bowl XX. Legendary head coach Mike Ditka, speaking on ESPN radio Tuesday morning, credited Ryan’s defensive scheme as the key component that helped Chicago beat New England, 46-10.

“The ’85 Bears wouldn’t have been the ’85 Bears without Buddy Ryan,” Ditka said. “The players absolutely loved him.”

RIP That 85 Bears 30 for 30 was amazing and showed how much he really cared about his players on and off the field.

Loved that Buddy Ryan 46 D. That was the meanest D I ever saw. I watched a shit load of Bears games in the early to late 80's (had one of those ginormous satellite dishes) and that D was fucking badass. Plus, Buddy Ryan interviews were always good and he even took a poke at Kevin Gilbride when they were the DC and OC of Houston. Gilbride didn't run out the clock prior to halftime and his QB fumbled the ball putting Buddy's D back out on the field. Thus, Buddy let Gilbride know exactly what he thought of his play calling. One poke says a thousand words.

Here in Tennessee, Pat Summit is a huge story. The state govt is talking about putting all flags at half staff.

Loved Buddy's attitude in the 80's.  That Super Bowl Bears defense was ferocious!  Steve Grogan was 17-30 with 177yds, 1 td, & 2 int's.  The rushing game?   How about 7 rushing yards on 11 carries?   shocking

Man, loved Buddy Ryan. You kids who are too young to remember need to do look up the '86 Bears Defense, which he was the architect. Greatest D-Coordinator of all time.

I hate to be that guy, but here goes: I do have to wonder if no-talent Rob Ryan would have ever gotten a job in the NFL if his daddy wasn't Buddy. Rex is a great coach, but Rob...takes up a coveted coaching spot in the league that someone more deserving could have earned.
