Scouting Report: Rob Ryan has terrible ball security, decent foot speed

By 106.7 The Fan

Washington Redskins inside linebackers coach Rob Ryan is one of the more... interesting characters in the NFL.

He comes from a great NFL pedigree: His father Buddy Ryan invented the 46 defense, ran the 1985 Chicago Bears' defense, and won Super Bowl XX. His brother Rex Ryan was a two-time head coach with the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills. And then there's Rob. 

He's been a defensive coordinator in the NFL with the Oakland Raiders, Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints, and Buffalo Bills. Ryan has never led a great defense, but he's well known. It is the hair isn't it? Has to be.

And in his first season with the Redskins (after spending a year working on the docks, or so he claims), Ryan has taught the Skins some old-school tackling drills and dropped some absolute DIMES showing off a cannon of an arm.
This week, in a continuing series on the great athleticism of the Redskins inside linebackers coach, Ryan showed off some poor ball security skills but elite foot speed during a fumble recovery drill.

Sketchy ball security by Rob Ryan but good hustle to try and recover his own fumble. Just couldn’t get there in time

After watching that one word comes to mind: Ath-a-lete.
