Default Insider: This guy isn't a typical Ryan

Quote:
The father did it his way, an in-your-face approach that sometimes got under people's skin, including many of his own players. Buddy Ryan was brash, abrasive, rude and way too forthcoming with the media, but, man, could he coach defense.

Ryan's "46 defense" dominated in the 1980s and early 1990s, both with the Chicago Bears as coordinator and with the Philadelphia Eagles as a head coach. The defensive style was a mirror of Ryan himself: Aggressive and loud -- and his teams backed down to nobody.

How does a 46 defense work? Who covers the recievers? Do you have corners playing in the LB position that back off and cover the reciever(s)?

in the 46, the strong safety is basically another LB. the CB's play close and are very physical, and will blitz quite a bit. the key in the defense is that the d-line stacks on the weak side, forcing the offense to adjust. the whole idea behind the defense is to put pressure on the QB and confuse the o-line. the corner(s) and FS generally were left alone to cover the receivers, and it was the west coast offense that ultimately lead to the defense being used less and less, because all those short passes completely exposed the holes in the defense. if you're playing a team with a poor passing game and they like to focus on the run primarily, and you have good athletes, you can still be successful with it nowadays, but i don't see it much. i think today's bears should run it, why not? they got the talent.

No doubt. Like Joe Montana did when he was playing with the Chiefs against the 12-4 Oilers (46 defense under Buddy Ryan) during the playoffs.
