I personally like the hire.

I like is attitude and he'll help draw up the gameplans.

I love him, he's got emotion and plays a very tough defense style.

I have mixed feelings on this. I want essentially the same scheme as last year, as we actually resembled a real defense last year, which we hadn't seen in years. Hope this doesn't just screw up all the positive momentum we had going on D.

I like the hire. He brings energy and schemes very well every week. I really hope he keeps the same defense with a few nice curve balls that get us over the hump to bring us to a top 5 defense.

(add 2 new safeties)


Is this the most talented defensive unit Rob will have coached? It seems so. . .


Is this the best head coach Rob has had? It seems so . . .


This could turn out to be an amazing higher, it really seems like a hire that can only be good. Aside from injury I don't see how we could get worse on defense.

I wonder if we're gonna run a hybrid defense with him.

I think we will stay 43 cause of Fisher, and that were very successful last year and no reason to change scheme.

Especially at this point only having 2 proven good linebackers on the roster.

Hopefully he brings more results than attention.

I'm sure we'll experiment on running a 3-4 at certain situations. I remember Fisher utilizing 3-4 schemes during the preseason with us.

Of course Les Snead would want to hire someone with these types of flowing locks. Look at that mane waft gently in the wind.

You mean...."continue to run a defense that presents multiple looks"....probably so. I do expect the general complexity of our defense to increase this year though.

Agreed, i'm really hoping this year is a huge up turn for the Rams and with Ryan as DC, we can pull more than 7 wins. I'm hoping for at least 9 now.

It was reported that Ryan was interviewed last Saturday (19th), so the fact that it's taken almost a week to confirm his recruitment leads me to believe that he and Fisher have been in talks over a possible switch to a 3-4 defence; given our playing personnel, to do so would be folly and I hope that Ryan has agreed to stick to the 4-3.
