  • Once again, former coaching standout Buddy Ryan has cancer, according to Jets coach Rex Ryan. But Rex is confident in his father. Said Rex: "He's 80 years old, but he's doing great. He's tougher than (s---). He's had other things in his life. He overcame encephalitis. He's overcome cancer twice. He's tough."
  • Sounds like the students at Assumption Catholic Church in St. Louis had a blast with Rams RB Steven Jackson. Even if this was a team-sponsored event (the Rams had to get special permission before Jackson could appear).

Hot Routes 3.23.11: Buddy Ryan has cancer

First of all, all the best to Buddy Ryan. Here's looking forward to another recovery. In response to Leonard Weaver, the whole "slave" word ought to be eliminated from the English language. Few people seem capable of using it properly and most are clueless to what being a slave truly means. I'm living in China and there are workers who work 7 days a week, 10 hours a day for 1000 CNY a month(Chinese money) which equates to roughly $160 USD.

Hot Routes 3.23.11: Buddy Ryan has cancer

Thoughts & prayers are with Buddy Ryan. I will never forget him as the linebacker's coach for the NY Jets during their 1969 Super Bowl 3 win over The Baltimore Colts. One of my fondest sports memories growing up.

This is one tough old ball coach Buddy Ryan beat cancer twice dont know if he has a 3rd time in him. I remember his Defensive teams like the Chicago Bears Super Bowl Champions. The Philadelphia Eagles he could not duplicate his success that he had with the Bears. A fiery man and his players loved him. I wish Buddy and all the Ryan family all the best.

As much as I can't stand Rex Ryan, my heartfelt best wishes go out to Buddy and his entire family including Rex.  Here's hoping for a feel good story if he can beat this thing.
