    I only know three things about Dick Jauron...

    1) Apparently - he's being let go from Cleveland, (where he was fairly successsful), because they are switching to a 3-4.

    2) He played free safety in the NFL, and he was a punt returner.

    3) he was a (unsuccessful) head coach. Never a bad thing.
    (Plus, who HAS been sussessful in Buffalo since Levy)?

    Good enough for me.

    I believe he also flamed out as a HC in Chicago. Which shouldn't disqualify him as a DC for us. For me the sad part is I remember him as a player, you might too...meaning we've been around for a while.

    Go Rams!

    Re: I only know three things about Dick Jauron...

    It is so very difficult to assess assistant coaches/coordinators becase there are so many variables that go into judging their performance. Sometimes coaches coach in less-than-ideal situations and their success isn't shown in the won-loss column. On the flip side, sometimes coaches appear successful yet are beneficiaries of great personnel. Team defensive/offensive rankings are often misleading and don't tell the whole story.

    Dick Jauron is a football lifer, starting out as a player in the 70's where he had a decent career. He has not been a successful head coach and has had mixed success as a coordinator. His best years were under Tom Coughlin when the Jaguars went to the playoffs 3 times in the mid 90's. He is respected enough, however, that he has found steady work as an assistant coach for a half dozen teams in the league. Personality-wise, he is the polar opposite of Rob Ryan- reserved and maybe even a little bland.

    Past head coaching success means very little when it comes to being a quality assistant on a football team. Mike White (15-17) and Frank Gansz (8-22) both were failed head coaches in the league but contributed to our 1999-2000 SuperBowl Championship. Even Dick Vermeil was 63-68 heading into that dream season.

    I have no idea if Jauron will be hired and don't know if he'd be a good fit for the Rams. Again, I have to place my trust in Fisher, who I'm confident will make the right decision.

    NJ that's sums it up for me as well. I thought it was interesting that Fisher had Rob meet with the staff and then said thanks but no thanks to Rob. Fisher will get it right.

    I don't know much about the guy, but if he can make the Browns look good on defense, imagine what he can do with you know....actual talent.

    And he runs a 4-3, if he's interested, I say bring him in. Makes more sense than Rob Ryan with the personnel the Rams have.

    Just realised for the first time that Dick Jauron and Dick LeBeau are two entirely different people.

    Well in a previous post I brought up the Mike Singletary card--likely will not get favorable responses to the suggestion. But considering how the division has changed with the Read Option/Pistol and etc. The Rams need to be more physical and have a DC that will bring that out in their defense. Hense why I brougth Singletary up--much of the creation of the 49whinners current "D" is his doing. Further since the Rams are a 4/3 "D"...it might not be a bad idea to run varients of the 46Defense--which obviously Singletary played in.

    Anyhow just an idea....
