Rob Ryan VS Rex Ryan

During an interview on The Monty Show on Sporting News Radio, Fabian Washington spilled the beans on the differences between Rob and Rex Ryan.

As we know, Rex Ryan has been the best defensive coordinator over the past 10 or so years, while Rob Ryan has been one of the worst (by the numbers).

So what is the difference?

"They are the same. They are different, but they are the same," Washington said. "The only difference is really Rex likes to blitz a bit more. Out of ten plays, Rex will blitz eight or nine times."

Washington also thinks Rob Ryan will adopt many of those blitzing ideas in Cleveland. It would be reasonable to assume Rob Ryan will be successful in Cleveland. It would also be reasonable to assume Al Davis is the one who has handicapped our defense by not allowing blitzing. Washington said guys in Oakland used to talk about the Ravens defense. It would be reasonable to assume the players in Oakland would like to blitz more.

Hopefully, our next defensive coordinator will challenge Davis a bit more on blitzing. I’ve heard many a fan complain about our lack of blitzing. While I understand that gripe, the only way you can blitz consistently is if you are disciplined enough in coverage. I’m not sure we are there, but a new defensive coordinator COULD be a good start.

  • Your top wide receiver had 700 yards! You probably need a wide receiver. Admit it.

  • Never understood why teams won';t acknowledge the obvious. You were 29th in sacks last year, of course you need a pass-rusher.
