Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan was surprised by the death of his father, former NFL coach Buddy Ryan, on Tuesday morning and drove eight hours from Orchard Park, New York to Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, after learning of his passing. Cheap Jerseys USA .It was a surprise in the fact that we thought he was doing a lot better, Rex told TheMMQB.com. But he had faced everything. He had just been diagnosed with Parkinsons disease; all those bouts of cancer he has had; numerous strokes; congestive heart failure. He actually beat encephalitis before. He eventually just couldnt take it -- I guess, with all that stuff piling up, it just got him.And you know what, the one thing that is amazing is, he couldnt hear. He could barely talk at the end. His teeth were falling out from all the radiation. He broke his back like three different times -- and he never complained one time. Not one time. He was one tough son of a gun.Funeral services for Buddy Ryan, who was 85, are scheduled for Friday in Lawrenceburg. The longtime NFL coach, best known for coordinating the 1985 Chicago Bears defense, lived on a ranch in Shelbyville, Kentucky, at the time of his death.According to The MMQB, Rex Ryan lobbied internally for the Bills to draft Reggie Ragland this past April because the Alabama linebacker brought more physicality to Buffalos defense and fit the mold of how Buddy Ryans teams would have played.When Dad looked at football players, he would take them in his own image, Rex Ryan said. Thats what he grew up around; thats what he was when he was a master sergeant in the Korean War. Thats what I took, and thats what I want on my football team.The Bills passed on Ragland with the No. 19 overall pick, instead selecting Clemson outside linebacker Shaq Lawson. The Bills then traded up in the second round, from No. 49 to No. 41, to choose Ragland. NFL Jerseys Discount . Barcelonas entertaining victory ensured the defending Spanish champions retained their share of the league lead with Atletico Madrid two rounds ahead of their meeting in the capital.

Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. Experience counts for nothing.Well, at least Canberra hope.The in-form Raiders are clear underdogs when it comes to post-season football, yet remain favourites to beat Cronulla in the NRLs first qualifying final.Eleven of their 17 will be making their finals debut at GIO Stadium on Saturday, including stars Aidan Sezer, Jordan Rapana and Josh Hodgson.The others have been there a combined 16 times.Thats 99 fewer appearances than the Sharks, who dont have a single newbie in their line-up.Hooker Michael Ennis, alone, has played in 15 finals matches; James Maloney has been in 14 - including two grand finals - and Chris Heighington a total of 13.The Raiders most experienced is Joey Leilua, who has played half a dozen with two other clubs.While, admittedly, they have some imports and a few players who spent time overseas, Canberra are 1326 games short on NRL experience compared to the premiership-less Sharks.But, who cares, right?It is a new experience for us, but well relish it, said veteran Sia Soliola.Weve got a good group here, no-one gets ahead of themselves.Everyone is just really knuckling down and trying to improve individually for the team.If experience means nothingg, than confidence will be everything for the Raiders.

Soliola said their 10-win run towards the playoffs has instilled some confidence in a side that hasnt been this far since 2012.That included a 30-14 win over the Sharks at Southern Cross Group Stadium in round 22.It definitely gave us a little bit of a boost, he said.In saying that, everyones talking about how finals footy is different and at the end of the day its how a team prepares mentally and physically.Weve got a lot of guys (for whom) this feeling is a little bit foreign, but were still learning and were still on the up.Despite the inexperience, Sezer said the Raiders will still play the fearless brand of footy thats become their trademark.Nothing will change, he said.Even though its finals footy, well back ourselves in everything we do.Weve won 10 on the trot now and we want to make it 11.EXPERIENCE v INEXPERIENCE:* NRL games played:Sharks: 2601 v Raiders: 1275* Finals games played:Sharks: 115 v Raiders: 16* Players with finals experience:Sharks: 17/17 v Raiders: 6/17 ' ' '
