Gus Bradley is meeting with the Redskins for their defensive coordinator position. Just putting that out there in case there was any chance we'd hire him.

It wouldnt be a big deal to make the switch. Just run a hybrid with one stand up LB and the other playing a traditional DE rusher.

I think we still would run a 4-3 even if we got Wade.


I doubt it. It's not hard for us to transition to Wade's 3-4. It's run a lot like a 4-3 in terms of assignments and aggressiveness. The only difference is that the base defense has bigger DLs.

DE-Aaron Donald

OLB-Robert Quinn
ILB-Alec Ogletree
ILB- Mark Barron
OLB- ? FA? Jarvis Jones maybe?

CB-Trumaine
CB- EJ Gaines
FS- Lamarcus Joyner
SS-TJ or Mo

Am I way off?


No. Not totally. I think we'd likely add some FAs. I don't see Easley or Gaines being a starter.

My expectation is that we'd add a couple of 3-4 DLs. I also expect that we'd add a CB. Likely Johnathan Joseph if the Texans cut him. I also think there's a high probability that DeMarcus Ware follows Wade here on a short-term deal as a rotational pass rusher.

My expectation is that it would look more like:
RDE: Aaron Donald
NT: Free Agent or Draft Pick
LDE: Michael Brockers
ROLB: Robert Quinn
RILB: Alec Ogletree
LILB: Mark Barron
LOLB: FA
RCB: FA
LCB: Trumaine Johnson (if we retain him)
SLCB: E.J. Gaines or Draft Pick
FS: LaMarcus Joyner (I hope)
SS: Maurice Alexander

Apparently, Sean McVay is having his second interview with the Rams. If he can get Wade Phillips, I'm 100% behind him.

Chris Cooley sold me on the guy:

Seeing McVay say he'd want to bring in Wade Phillips as DC inspires some hope. It shows that he wants to bring in the best in areas that he lacks in...Something Fisher never seemed to come around to (couldn't run an offense and apparently didn't want anyone else who could either).

I've never personally been a huge fan of the 3-4 and don't think we have the ideal components to do it, but if having Wade Phillips meant having a 3-4, I'd come around to it. I just think you get the most out of our best players on D in Donald and Quinn in the positions they're currently in. Could Donald play as a 3-4 DE? Sure. Could Quinn be a stand up 3-4 OLB? Sure, but I don't think that would get the most out of either of them. Our LB core would be a mess IMO. Tree would be the only natural fit as a ILB. Barron is hardly a 4-3 OLB; I don't think he'd hold up doing it in the 3-4. Hayes wouldn't have a position to play--I think he's strictly a 4-3 DE. And we wouldn't have anyone as an edge rusher opposite of Quinn.

Again, with all of that said, having Phillips as a DC would quite my concerns.

Truthfully, in today's NFL, many of the 3-4 schemes resemble 4-3 schemes because of how often they're in the nickel. And that's not counting that the 3-4 schemes that actually look nearly identical to a 4-3 scheme in their base (ex. Ravens).

Wade Phillips's defense is more or less a 4-3 except that he uses heavier personnel. It's not much of a change. I'm sure he can use Hayes as a DE if he desires to do so. Hayes is 6'3" 280ish and excels at playing the run.

McVay and Phillips is something I can absolutely get behind. Now put Lynn as the OC and Fassel. Do it Rams, please us.

If the Rams hire McVay to be the Head Coach, it's going to be his offense. He's going to want to bring in someone that is familiar with his offense. Could see someone like Matt Cavanaugh being the new "OC"
