Jeff Fischer won't get the TV airtime either because he'll just be standing there, calm and collected, so we'll get to watch Rob Ryan huff and puff up and down the sidelines yelling at referees, players, opposing players, and anything/one else that is around.

2013 going to be a fun season.

Seems like most of their guys are better off in the 4-3.

If anything, I feel like the Rams needed a coordinator that's not quite so aggressive, yeah, they can cause problems with the way that front four attacks, but they run themselves out of plays and often aren't terribly interested in defending the run. This hire strengthens their mentality and it fits the style, but the style is chaotic and aggressive, but the more we see it, the better we do.

After Rams planned to hire Rob Ryan on Jan. 24, @mortreport reports St. Louis has changed its mind and will not add him to its staff.
The bottom line, according to a source, is that Ryan declined the defensive coordinator position due to hesitations from coaching a 4-3 system and not being able to pick his assistants.
"He wanted it to work, and I just think he realized over the weekend that it was not (a fit)," a source told Thomas. "Rob was torn."
