The Rams and Jeff Fisher dodged a bullet by announcing that they actually would not be hiring Rob Ryan as defensive coordinator. STORY
Ryan, whose mouth is known to run much faster than his brain, had said he would be out of a job for like 5 minutes. Fisher only said that the scheme was not a good fit. I hear ya bro, Ryan runs a 3-4 and the Rams are running a 4-3 so don’t ask me why Fisher even gave this thing a look. It made no sense to me as the Rams had a significantly better defense last year than Dallas.
Ryan managed to take the Cowboys defense to some all time lows in interceptions and over all defense. Now I guess the Rams will join the Cowboys, Raiders, and Browns on Ryan’s list of teams to hate. In 10 years, Ryan had 1 top 10 defense. Of course some say “but all the injuries” this year at Dallas. Jerry spent a lot to get DBs Carr and Claiborne who weren’t injured. The lack of turnovers is what head coach Jason Garrett said was the reason they broke off Ryan.
The Eagles are still searching for a defensive coordinator and they are a 4-3 team considering the 3-4 change. His dad coached there so maybe the Eagles will hire him? Then he could play Dallas twice a year.
Be warned that Ryan’s defense is so complicated that even he doesn’t understand it.
