    Its just so crazy it might work...

    Coach Linehan likes to use the phrase "we'll put the best people on the field."

    Well, I'm not sure we're doing that on defense right now. So, in the interest of providing a knee-jerk, overreacting, off-the-cuff response that nonetheless might have some merit, allow me to suggest this line-up for the Rams' defense that I think would do a better job of stopping the run than the one we're currently using.

    DE: Leonard Little
    NT: Adam Carriker
    DT: Clifton Ryan
    DE: James Hall
    SLB: Brandon Chillar
    MLB: Chris Draft
    WLB: Will Witherspoon
    CB: Tye Hill
    CB: Ron Bartell
    SS: Pisa Tinoisamoa
    FS: O.J. Atogwe

    On passing downs, I'd make a few adjustments, but I think that could be the best run stopping option we have.

    I agree about Ryan and carriker up front. I think Glover should only come in on passing downs and to give these guys a breather.

    A basic 4-4 package would be the way to go. Well done AV.

    Avenger, I wouldn't mind seeing that line up at all (with the exception of Pisa playing SS on any down.) I also wouldn't mind see Victor trying his hand at the nose or under tackle position as a possible backup now that i'm a little more comfortable with our DE's.

    I'm not real confident with Pisa in the secondary.

    I agree that we don't want Pisa to be put in a lot of pass coverage situations. What I have in mind is more of an "in the box" SS who would play on running downs. On passing downs, I'd rotate Chavous into that spot.

    The best way to stop the run. Keep their O on the sideline, Maybe we can have a drive of 9 plays, not three and out!

    AV I would have Clifton Ryan at NT.

    I'm going to try this lineup on madden! lol

    For real though I love the idea of moving Draft to MLB and putting Will back at his old spot. Didn't Draft play MLB for Carolina when Morgan got hurt? And he led the team in tackles. Couldn't hurt, call Linehan!

    Obviously, Claude Wroten hasn't been impressing anyone.

    Heck, why don't we just put Linehan at Running back?? Just kidding...I also don't know about Pisa in the Secondary.

    DE: Leonard Little
    NT: Adam Carriker
    DT: Clifton Ryan
    DE: James Hall
    That's an interesting front. What have you seen from Ryan that makes you believe he'd be a better three technique than both Glover and Wroten? If you wanted to get him into the line-up, I'd say put him on the nose and move Carriker to the UT position. I think that's an easier case to make than putting Ryan above those two.

    SLB: Brandon Chillar
    MLB: Chris Draft
    WLB: Will Witherspoon
    This actually looks quite good, assuming Chillar maintains the level of play he was at this weekend.

    CB: Tye Hill
    CB: Ron Bartell
    SS: Pisa Tinoisamoa
    FS: O.J. Atogwe
    As you've already pointed out, Pisa @ SS would have to be a run package. We'd still need someone for passing downs, which would likely still be Chavous. I don't think Carter has progressed enough to warrant passing him.

    Didn't we actually try moving Pisa to safety back in the wild Martz days? As I recall, it didn't work out well. But I agree that lineup really doesn't look that bad even if Carriker/Ryan would mean no pass rush up the middle.

    I think we might need someone else at DE the ones we have now seemed to get sucked in and sealed against the run on Sunday
