    Fisher @ Rams Press Conference: Not naming new DC at this time

    -Supports & respects decision by Commissioner.

    -Fisher said he was anticipating this suspension the past couple of days. Severity does not surprise the team.

    -Williams made & admitted to mistake. He has accepted consequences and will be suspended immediately indefinitely. No contact permitted with him at any time.

    -Hope that Greg can move on and learn from this experience.

    -Met w/ staff and informed staff of news. Not naming DC at this time.

    -Fisher and Rams had no idea of the potential for this to happen. Has been asked behind the scenes if he still would have hired Williams if he'd known about it, "of course not."

    -Not saying who will make defensive calls, but said he could, McGinnis could, or Cecil could.

    -Fisher personally informed Williams of the league's decision.

    -I couldn't hear the question, but it sounded like Fisher was saying it was unlikely they'd go outside the building for a new DC.

    -Fisher was not aware of any previous investigations of Williams in the league.

    -"We have to move on, our job is to win games."

    -Very strong message was sent today.

    -This defense is very intellectually challenging but they'll get the job done.

    -Never at any time when Fisher coached with Williams did he see Williams disrespect the game

    Wait!

    Is he saying the defensive system is intellectually challenging?

    Or is he saying this defensive roster is intellectually challenging?

    .....because that's two very different situations.

    Whoever they decide upon they need to decide quickly and decisively. Fisher made comment as to there being multiple former defensive coordinators in the building-but we cannot have a situation where there are co-coordinators, or one guy feels that he should be coordinating and is going to fight to get his stuff done (too many chefs issue).

    Pick someone, and make sure we got his back 100%

    I'm pretty sure he was referring to the system, but I wouldn't rule the latter out either.

    I think both. How do you make the ultra-blitzy Williams system work without assassin bonuses or or more than the 3-4 current Ram players who can play straight-up one-on-one ?

    Transcript from emergency coaches meeting to brainstorm new strategy & decide on new DC:

    Fisher: OK, who has any ideas?

    Cecil: We can't use shivs?

    Fisher: Ummmm, no....

    McGinnis: How about brass knuckles?

    Fisher: Ummm...no.

    Cecil: How about red laser pens from the cheap seats ?

    Fisher: Hmmmmm....might actually work; red seats, red lasers....we'll look into that one.

    McGinnis: How about dipping Darell Scott's or Eugene Sims' finger nails in Ebola or something ? One good scratch......

    Fisher: Hmmmmmmm.....nah, neither one ever gets close enough to the QB to make it work.

    Cecil: Ooooh...Ooooh....howzabout a high-powered rifle that shoots an ice bullet. Bullet melts & hey presto; looks like the guy had a badly-infected zit or something....

    Fisher: Ummmmmmm.....Chuck, here's a twenty; why doncha go get us some doughnuts while we finish this up....
