Rex Ryan has held onto and relinquished some of his play calling duties over the years when it comes to running the defense on his clubs. In Buffalo it sounds like he’ll handle play calling for the most part on defense in 2015.
When asked about how much he will handle the play calling, Ryan gave strong indication that he’ll be sending most of the plays in on the defensive side of the ball.
“I do plan on calling the majority of the defense, but I think, I’ve never done it 100 percent, whether it’s Dennis Thurman, Mike Pettine, I’ve relied on a lot of guys and I’ll continue to do so, but there is maybe a little more challenge when you are a play caller,” he said. “It’s probably easier to observe other things if you’re not focused on calling the next series. But I can tell you I’m much more comfortable calling a defense and recognizing that there are some challenges that go with it as well.”
