As we covered on Buffalobills.com this week both Ronald Darby and Stephon Gilmore have been at the top of their game the last few games making them one of the best cover tandems so far in 2015. Bills head coach Rex Ryan admits that their lock-tight coverage outside gives he and defensive coordinator more options with play calls defensively.
In his weekly appearance on Coffee with the Coach presented by Tim Hortons, Ryan explained some of the things their coverage ability provides.
“It really helps. Obviously you can do so much more man coverage,” he said. “Usually you isolate those guys and maybe double the inside guys. So there’s a lot of different things that it allows you to do. It’s not easy to find corners who can play that well. But those two have been exceptional.”
