Rex committed to pure Ryan defense in year 2

He’s still extremely confident in his own abilities as a football coach and he still shoots players straight while also knowing how to have a little fun. But there are some ways that head coach Rex Ryan believes he has changed his approach as a coach after a disappointing 2015 season.

Ryan says that change in approach will be most evident on the defensive side of the ball where he admitted he made some concessions and compromises to his defense last season to appeal to players.

“I’ve changed a lot. I’m a guy that believes in myself a great deal and I believe in the guys that are around me,” said Ryan. “But the way that I grew up, my way of playing defense, in my opinion is the best way. And I think more than ever, it showed me that – and I’m not blaming anything else – I’m responsible for what was on the field last year, 100 percent. But I’ve also been responsible for every team that I’ve ever coached, 100 percent. So we’ll see how it goes, but I expect to be really good. I think we’ll be much improved from last year. And I guess time will tell.”
