    If we did indeed hire him I expect he will coach a 4-3/3-4 hybrid which most of the playoff teams run.
    May be why the change was made in the first place because Fisher wanted more fronts for opposing offenses to contend with, but we certainly don't have the personel and that would sort of tip something about where we are going in the draft.
    I think Chris Long could easily stand up , but Brockers as a nose tackle ?

    Why couldn't Brockers play nose tackle? He's 6'5" 322lbs....Jay Ratliff is 6'4" 303lbs....Haloti Ngata 6'4" 340lbs.


    But I don't expect a full conversion to the 3-4...he ran a 4-3 in Oakland. He grew up in his Dads 46 defense (which is an alignment of the 4-3)...

    I don't think it's true, just some premature reports right now. We will probably have to wait and see.

    Rob Ryan said he'd be out of work for "like five minutes" after the Dallas Cowboys fired him Tuesday. It has been a little more than that, but Ryan already might have a new gig.

    "Might" being the key word.

    Sources told New York Post reporter Brian Costello on Friday that Ryan had been hired as defensive coordinator for the St. Louis Rams, who still haven't fired the indefinitely suspended Gregg Williams. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport called the report premature, and another source told Costello the deal wasn't done but close.

    ESPNDallas.com's Calvin Watkins reached Ryan, who said, "I'm on a beach and have talked to nobody and have no comment."

    Still with us?

    So at the moment, Ryan still is unemployed. But that could change in like five minutes.

    This was when he was w/ the Raiders. I wanted Rob during the Linny hiring.

    Rex is more of a talker than Rob is. If this works out, this Ram D could be easily top 5.

    Also..interesting, b/c...well I've seen it here before, quite often. Let's just say you aren't THE Rammer. :ww: :hehe:

    On my phone so I can't link right now, but Howard Balzer of 101.1 espn just tweeted this:

    @HBalzer721: Hearing that Rob Ryan to the Rams is definitely happening.

    Just another conflicting report, but thought it warranted to be shared.

    Well, Howard very rarely speaks out of turn or prematurely.

    Hmmmm.

    You know what though? I think all of our coaches talk a little crap.
    Although Rob could probably move to the top of the chart. :lol:

    “I inherited a team that was 31st in the league in defense and made them better,” Ryan told ESPNDallas.com. “I (expletive) made them a hell of a lot better. I’ll be out of work for like five minutes.”

    Howard Balzer ‏@HBalzer721

    "Rams sources insist no decision has been made on Rob Ryan. "

    And the news continue to roll out. Balzer did say something interesting:

    Howard Balzer ‏@HBalzer721

    "Lots of angst among Rams fans about Rob Ryan. Bottom line: He's a good coach. Do people think if he wasn't good Fisher would be interested? "

    That is very true.

    Anyone else find this funny?

    He's coming.

    He's not. It's just a rumour.

    He's coming.

    He's not heard from the Rams.

    He's coming.

    It's not a done deal.
