    Morning Ram-blings: The Williams Effect
    By Nick Wagoner

    http://espn.go.com/blog/st-louis-rams/post/_/id/9087/morning-ram-blings-the-williams-effect-2

    EARTH CITY, Mo. -- Before the NFL draft and free agency, the St. Louis Rams made what could turn out to be the most important addition of the offseason, hiring Gregg Williams as defensive coordinator.

    Late last week, ESPN NFL Insider Mike Sando took a look at some newly-hired coordinators around the league and their potential impact Insider on their new teams.

    Sando spoke to an offensive coordinator about what Williams could do for the defense in his first season in St. Louis. The answer should provide plenty of hope for the Rams and their fans.

    "Gregg Williams is a nightmare coaching with St. Louis because they have a great front," the coordinator told Sando. "He has multiple packages. It will not be just those guys sitting in a straight 4-3. They will be kicking them and moving them. Now they also have an inside rusher with the kid they drafted."

    As the Rams continue through organized team activities, Williams can regularly be seen buzzing around the practice field and putting his imprint on the defense. The emphasis on takeaways is perhaps most evident as Williams pushes his defenders to go after the ball regardless of circumstance.

    There's still much for the defense to learn from Williams in the offseason and he has more to learn about how to best deploy his new players, but to compete in the NFC West division Williams' impact must be felt sooner than later.
