According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Rex Ryan is trying to help his quarterbacks speed up their decision-making in the pocket by installing a practice buzzer. This is not a new technique, as it was used previously by the Packers Mike McCarthy. The Packers use a buzzer that is set at 2.5 seconds.
Rex feels that adopting that system will be beneficial to his signal callers. "I think we need that a little bit, " Ryan said Monday. "(Tebow and Sanchez) are holding the ball a little too long. Got to get that ball out. I'll talk to Tony (Sparano) about doing that.
This is not the first time that Rex Ryan has deployed the buzzers though. In fact he installed them last year during week 5, after Sanchez got pounded by the Ravens.
Ryan pointed out that this year, perhaps Tebow needs it even more than Sanchez. "The thing I notice about Tim is that a lot of times he's looking to make that big throw down the field. He's going to be super dangerous. . . if he can get that ball out of his hands quicker, I think that's going to help him. . . We're going to challenge Tim. Get the ball out of there quicker. . . I think that will help him," stated Ryan.
