Having said that, his agressive style 4-3 defense would be perfect for us. While I'm not the biggest of Gregg Willliams fan the person, he is a pretty good defensive mind.


I really dont care about what role he played in bountygate i know the NFL has to act on it because of concussion law suits and actions against the NFL from retired players but im sure Gregg Williams wasnt the first guy to do this and wont be the last. Our defense needs something done to it to get better hes a start

Murderers are not the first people who have killed someone and won't be the last, but that does not make it right lol

But I do agree. Surely this will help our defense if we let him be involved.

Just here me out;

We know Bud doesn't like to hire from outside the organization right? I wonder if Bud is hiring him with plans to promote him to HC after next season? Give him a season to get back into and hope for the best?

I do believe there is a reason he is getting the assistant head coach title...

If the defense improves bu team continues to struggle, would not be surprised.

Well if that happens, we'll continue to live in mediocrity.

Gregg plans on assassinating Bud Adams.

I believe he is the new hero in the next Assassin's Creed game.

He could be the in-season replacement for either Munch or Gray if things don't go well again this year.

I think what he does best is design and call a Defense... you know, coordinate... but it seems they don't want to take those duties from Gray yet. Munch may just be adding a midseason safety valve in case things continue like they did this past year (remember that it was speculated that the reason Palmer was let go and not Gray was because Loggains was believed to be ready to take over the duties of OC while there was no one staff that could take over DC duties).

Munchack may have asked for this move to give him some flexibility, and to allow him to sacrifice another lamb, shifting blame/focus/attention from himself. But I think it could also work against him, since it gives the FO a guy who is also capable of taking over the HC duties if they decide, midseason, that Munchack is the one that needs to be sacrificed.

I know Williams can design a mean defense... I know he can adjust in game, make the right calls, and put the players in a position to make game changing plays. What we don't know is if he can be a good HC. He didn't fare too well his first time attempting it... but that doesn't mean he can't do it. Plenty of coaches have found success their second attempt after not being able to be successful the first time around. It may be the seasoning needed, maybe the experience failing with one franchise provides, whatever it may be, but there are a few examples... Belichick and Carrol being prime recent examples. Of course there are examples of guys who just can't translate being a good coordinator to being a good HC... Turner and Wade Phillips being the obvious examples of this group.

Either way, Williams will start the year as Assistant Head Coach, but he is being brought in as an expensive insurance policy in case the team has to make a hard move, giving themselves multiple options when contemplating this move.

I would love bringing in Gregg. The guy is one of the best defensive minds in recent history, IMO. And his defenses play with confidence and swagger....hopefully they will still do that without having any...incentives...

Gregg will be Bud's insurance policy. He can take over in season for Gray or Munch. I do not care for Williams' personality, but he was a heck of a DC. The saints in 2011 were not very good on defense. I don't know if that was teams figuring out his blitz packages, his defense was hurt or something else. I recall a rookie QB from the Titans lighting his defense up here at LP Field in 2011. Just sayin..

Maybe I'm being real naive or just overly excited about the whole scenario but his style adds a whole new dynamic to the talent we have now. In other words, he knows how to motivate (without the money scandal) and put players in better positions to make plays. He'll make our average players look better, and turn our top players into real playmakers. Imagine our defense playing 2-3 times better than they did in the last 6 weeks of the season, and doing it against GOOD teams. That's what I see happening under Gregg Williams.
It's no secret to what he likes to do and how. Whether he's coming in as the assistant HC, DC or whatever, I seriously doubt that Bud and Munchak are making a reach like this, baggage and all, to bring him in here just to sit back and twiddle his thumbs while we continue running the same BS that we saw last season.

Unless we upgrade our safeties Williams defense might just be worse than Grays for us. Hard to blitz when you have two guys who can't tackle the broad side of a barn.

Oh dear Lord, the idea of upgrading our safeties goes without saying. Outside of bolstering our D-line, our Safeties are the next biggest concern. And you're spot on about that so-called tackling that we CAN'T do. That's why I don't understand why some people think moving Griffin into the box as a SS for run support is a good idea. Dude can't tackle a one-legged man hopping around with a sore ankle. I'd rather find a Safety in FA, and save the draft picks for other needs (DL, OG, DB, ILB, RB, WR).
