...I have heard his name mentioned. Regardless of his performance as a HC, there is no doubting his abilities as a DC. As an obvious Buddy Ryan fan, I would love to have Rex for that connection, but also because I think that he could do some really interesting things with guys like Mack and Hicks on defense. Being a Buddy Ryan disciple, I also prefer a riskier, more hyper-aggressive Defense, which Ryan would also bring.

Anyway, judging by the fact that Nagy was perfectly fine with the Bears retaining Fangio and basically allowing him to do whatever he wanted on the Defensive side of the ball, it would make perfect sense to hire a coach like Ryan and to just turn the defense completely over to him, making him the same type of "Co-Head Coach" that Fangio was this past year.

No.

He's a bombastic meatball doofus blowhard that loves nothing more than the sound of his own voice. Everything he's touched since leaving Baltimore has turned to ash.

Sounds like Donatell is going with Fangio and Bowles *may* be tied to Arians.

Who the fuck else is left?

Gregg Williams? I don't think Bowles is a done deal in TB though.

There is no doubt the guy can and would have a good defense as the bears DC. The problem is would he disrupt the good vibes that the bears are riding on? If he could stay his lane, he is probably the 2nd best candidate to Bowles IMO.

Fuck no. He is too hungry for the spotlight himself. He doesn't fit with the culture Nagy is building. Rex would create distraction. His D's are mostly about run stopping only, and without rare talents like Revis to cover his scheme warts up, I was never overly impressed.

And anyone who'd tattoo Mark Sanchez on their body is not to taken seriously again.

Although I agree about him being a distraction, his defenses have always been stout, even when his teams down right suck. With the Bears front 7, average corners will look really good. Ohh and BTW, the bears do have some good DB’s on their roster to boot.

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.
