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

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.

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