Rex Ryan called brother Rob for advice on Panthers


The Carolina Panthers are trying to bounce back from a tough win-streak ending loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan’s defense held the Panthers to just 13 points, seven of which came in the fourth quarter when the Panthers were trailing 31-6 already.

The Panthers offense is taking on another Ryan, Rob’s brother and head coach of the New York Jets Rex Ryan on Sunday. In order to prepare, Rex admitted he called Rob to get some advice on how to beat the Panthers.

Oh yeah without question I’ve already talked to him,” Rex said on a conference call, via Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer. “Our defenses are two different defenses, he has his own style, so do we. But again, without question I’ve already talked to him about the things he picked up. Just anything you would do against any opponent, but in particular he just played them this past week so I definitely already talked to him.”

Unfortunately for the Panthers, after playing Rex Ryan they host Rob Ryan and the Saints.
