Buddy Ryan had two stints as a head coach — with the Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals — but is arguably best known as being the architect for the Chicago Bears stifling defenses from 1978-1985.

Wow, sad news. Obviously as a Pats fan I have some feelings towards Rex and, to some degree, Rob as well, but only in matters of football. Condolences to Ryan family, Buddy was a legend and his sons have proudly followed in his coaching footsteps.
I’m reminded of the post-game jingle for him sung by the players in an old NFL Films video I had as a kid in the 80s.
“Hoo-ray for Buddy, hoo-ray for Buddy, hoo-ray for Buddy, the horse’s ass!” I’ll always remember that fondly.
Oh and Kevin Gilbride, good news: you can resume sleeping with BOTH eyes closed again…
