http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000130691/article/rob-ryan-agrees-to-take-over-st-louis-rams-defense

Thoughts and opinions?

Seems to be good for us, he comes with a lot of hype but he's never coached a top ten unit, his Boys team last year had just 16 turnovers (4th fewest in league), while the rams led the league in sacks. Should be interesting to see if he can melt down the Rams like his brother has done so thoroughly with the Jets.

He's going to be taking over a D with a lot of talent and will have Jeff Fisher, a defensive coach in his own right, as his boss. I don't think that it's going to be quite as disastrous as you all think.

Remember, they had Gregg Williams as DC before he was banned via Bountygate, and his son - who apparently no one liked - took over for the rest of the season. If the Rams could still put up solid defensive performances for the most part in that situation, I don't see how Ryan taking over is a downgrade.

He's never had a unit with top-ten talent to be fair.

The Cowboys were ranked 32nd when he took over, for example, and with Jerry Jones as a GM there's never much hope for you

I think this is a good move for the Rams (bad move for us)

Yeah, this makes the Rams' D better. Ryan is an oaf, but he knows defense.

Honestly, I'm not thrilled about this from a Seahawks perspective. that team was tough last season. They'll be tougher next season.

I see three quality teams developing out of the West next year. The Cards are in disarray but still have a solid D. It's going to be tough sledding to win this division, which is looking like the best in football.

The Rams currently run a 4-3 right now right? Are they going to switch to a 3-4 now with Ryan?
Seems like most of their guys are better off in the 4-3.

and this

I think this is bad for us. Fisher and Ryan combined with good players and like 100 draft picks (thanks Redskins - I could have given you a guy in a wheelchair for a lot less) will make this a 3 team conference and I wouldn't be surprised to see all 3 teams make the playoff. At least we should have two easy wins against Arizona

Ryan given the players he needs will have an aggressive attacking defense, they were hard to deal with last season I think Ryans fire will keep them coming. Fisher also is a defensive minded coach and will support Ryan in bringing in the guys he needs.

I don't see this signing being good for us. We are way to DangeRuss to be concerned about this hire.

Oh great, that's 4 games a year with at least one pompous douche on the opposing sideline. 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.

It'll set the Rams defense back a bit, what's not to love?

Good for the Rams, they need a boost! This will only help galvanize the Seahawks by making competition a lot tougher.


2013 going to be a fun season.

I'm not sure on this hire, but I highly doubt Fisher is going to jeapordize his young Defense that quietly made even your team surprised in that last game, and beat you the first game.

I was kind of hoping for a very quiet Rams off season with all media focus on Seahawks with Wilson crazy good and Niners in SB.

This is now an amazing division to play in. 2013 will be fun. NFC East can suck it.

In Rob's defense (pun) the teams he's been with as a DC have been pretty bad, and I regarding the whole team. The Raiders, Browns, and Cowboys either had an offense that virtually non existent or wildly inconstant which would always put more pressure on Rob's defense. If anything I liked most of what he did in Dallas, but that's not to say he doesn't deserve some of the blame with some of the poor performances, but I think the big issue with the Cowboys really didn't have anything to do with Rob Ryan.

Ryan ran a 4-3 with the Raiders then went to the 3-4 when he went to the Browns and stuck with it when he went to the Cowboys. He has only had one defense as the coordinator finish in the top ten and that was in yards for the Raiders, points allowed was middle of the pack that year. I am not really concerned about the addition of Ryan to the Rams. They were already going to be a very good defense this upcoming season. The question will become if they will be able to bring in an infusion of new blood with both Long and Laurinaitis signing very high cap hit contract extensions this season.

This is an excellent move for the Rams

Despite his brash attitude he's a damn good D Coordinator

He'll get those boys playing hard

His scheme typically borders on unsound, downhill and aggressive, its kind of boom or bust. 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.

It's a good move for them, and a tough move for us. Still, it might be worth it for me since I'm a lipreading enthusiast when it comes to F-bombs on live TV.

Agreed.

But, I think Ryan's was due to the poor players or situations he's been in. Either being outmanned or having to compensate for the offense not contributing. This will be his first job, under a HC with competence, IMO. He's a top 10 DC, IMO, and I dont really care what the stats say.

49ers best get it next week, because I think they're going to be 3rd place in the NFCW for awhile.

More like 60 times per year. The networks show him on the sideline every 2-3 plays for some reason. Like he's really riveting television. I don't get it.

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.

Was wondering why the Rams would hire a DC that had more recent 3-4 experience for a 4-3 team? Fisher or Ryan must have gotten cold feet after starting to put in the final plans prior to Ryan signing the agreement. If I am a Rams fan, I am hoping it was Ryan who had a change of heart. Would not bode well if my HC was flip-flopping.

I think it was Ryan having a change of heart.

ESPN's report here: http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/88934 ... eff-fisher

Wouldn't they have known he wasn't a good "scheme fit" before they ever brought him in for the first visit. Weird.

More update on the Ryan decision not to take the job

Quote:
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."
