But Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan does not call a game the way his dad did. If Buddy could bring the kicker on a blitz he would have.
"I don’t max pressure nearly as much as my father does," Rob Ryan said. "I don’t back off of pressure but the game is different. Back then you had two formations and one protection so you could beat the crap out of the protection all day long. Nobody would change and you’d just set sack records. Dad was the first one smart enough to figure that out. Hopefully we have smart coaches here, I know we do.
"You don’t want to always max pressure and you expose yourself to pressure. You are trying to take as few guys as it takes to hit the quarterback. Do we blitz? Hell yeah. But we also have loaded coverage. They may pick up the blitz, but we may want them to pick it up."
