Here at Building the Herd, we’re trying out some new things to bring our readers more knowledge and insight regarding the Buffalo Bills. For those of you that don’t know, Rich Fann (@RDotDeuce on Twitter) runs BuffaloWins.net (@BuffaloWins on Twitter) and is not only a great guy, but one of the more knowledgeable fans you’ll find within “Bills Twitter.”
So, I (Rob Quinn, @RQUINN619) decided to join forces with Rich and begin a video series in which we’ll break down players, schemes, specific plays and just about anything we find interesting that’s related to our Buffalo Bills.
In our first two film sessions, we broke down the games of Buffalo Bills rookie LB Reggie Ragland, the team’s second-round pick out of Alabama and DE/OLB Shaq Lawson, the team’s first-round pick out of Clemson.
With this episode, we’re beginning a series that takes a look at Rex Ryan’s defense as a whole. We know the unit regressed in year one with Rex calling the shots, so we went back and watched his 2005 Baltimore Ravens defense. Here, we look at the various fronts, alignments and player responsibilities as an “intro” to the series.
