I'm going to call on the ghost of the "Should we sign Khalil Mack" thread, and say you guys are idiots.

I actually know Rex Ryan a bit having worked with him for a few years. First thing to know is he's as genuine/nice a person as I've ever met in the NFL coaching world. Genuine to the bone, including how he treats administrative staff and every other regular joe. This helps him connect with his players on a real personal level, much like Nagy was able to do. His mouth stems from his very amicable personality, he talks to anyone and everyone, he just loves people.

Second thing to know is that he lives and breathes football - but not just football, defensive football. He wasn't a great HC but as a DC he's as good as you'll find IMO. His defense were always good, and when they slacked it was because he gave too much control to others. He brought up Mike Pettine, a damn fine DC in his own right, as well as many others. He loves aggressive, downhill attacking defense, just like his old man. Give him good pass rush personnel (which we have), and he'll give you not a good, but a GREAT defense. 3/4 guy too, so his style fits our personnel.

I don't know if he wants to be a DC or not, but if he does I'd take him in a heart beat. HC? Sure, diss him all you want there, he relied on a defensive identity when the NFL changed to a purely offensive league. But as a DC? Damn, he'd do great things with this team.


Call/text him and find out if he's interested. I'm not kidding.

That last paragraph sums it up exactly to me. I'd love to have Rex Ryan in charge of the defense. Imagine the blitz possibilities 3-4, 4-3, 46 combinations with the personnel we have. We have several LBs that can blitz the hell out of the offense and from multiple positions. Not knowing where or when the blitz or pass rush is coming would have to lessen the amount that Mack is double teamed. That alone is worth transitioning for.

Ryan would also have a once in a lifetime opportunity here given the quality of our defense. He'd have to be interested if he was offered a chance to interview.

hell no

while he might actually offer actual defensive talent, I think that is outweighed by the clown show that comes with it

He was, literally a GREAT DC IN THE D SYSTEM WE CURRENTLY RUN. He'd come into a stacked team with a HC willing to allow his DC free reign. That might actually be enough to get him.

Clown show? I don't know... maybe... that's the office's problem. I'd take him in a heartbeat if he were willing to come back.

Don't dis the idea because it was mentioned from ball of meat covered in sauce! LOL I've seen other places talking about it and I think it would be a win.

Word on the street today is that Bowles is gone, he decided to go with TB. If that's the case, it's probably because the Bears said they'd already gotten if covered. If Donatell really is gone with Vic, then it might be Jay Rodgers (d line coach).

But, as dplank said, we didn't know jack about the Mack thing. I wouldn't put much past Pace but I'll have a hard time questioning much he does or says right now also.

Rex was in the bottom half of defensive rankings his last 7-8 years in the league. He was good 2 of 4 years in Baltimore and his first two years with the jets and then stunk after that with the jets and bills having 15 be his highest ranking in that stretch.

No thanks.
