    This is how I feel as well - and to be honest, I think this year's defense was pretty indicative of that. If Rob Ryan is a great motivator and co-conspirator, go get him.

    I don't get all the hype, so he wouldn't be my choice. But what the flip do I know?

    Other than being an obnoxious blowhard, being run out of several jobs after short tenures...and having limited success in his coaching career...I don't see a thing wrong with him. The Rams dont need the Ryan 'circus' to come to town. Surely, there has to be a better way.

    Re: The Rob Ryan Hypothetical

    I guess the bottom line is I trust Fisher on this.

    With that said, I prefer that a "bad attitude" on defense comes from the players themselves versus the coach. I never liked the elder Ryan (too arrogant and classless) and I don't believe the apples (Rob and Rex) have fallen far from the tree in this case.
