I know he might be candidate for Ravens HC, but considering he was on their staff they might want to look for something outside previous regime.

well, i wouldnt mind having him here, but i would like to hear what he plans to do about the offense (who he might bring in as OC)

Yea, I would also like to see him as HC, but he would need to bring a good OC to make it complete!

Singletary has worked with him previously. What if Singletary is hired and he decided to go with Ryan as his DC?

I like it-however, would hope we would have GM in position that is part of that decision. Who would you like to see as OC as part of that scenario? What qb, offense coach has history w Singletary?

The man is out of a job right now. If we do not take him as HC, and if we make Zim HC, or lose Zim, I think Rex should definitely be considered as DC.

I heard Ravens owner say, he was honoring contracts of the assistants let go that they would all be paid for 2008. So he will have income, but I dont believe he would want to sit out a year.

What about keeping Hue as OC, and having Ryan as DC with Singletary as HC?

Only if we lose Zimmer I would like to keep Zim with our team either as DC or HC.

I wasnt impressed w D play in last 2 games! Unbelievable, but our O played better than the D. That causes me some concern w ZImmerman.

I think his brother Rob (with the Raiders) has proven himself more. Rex took over a Ravens D that had been good under two previous coordinators (Marvin Lewis, Mike Nolan), while Rob has turned that Raiders D into one of the best. I'd be worried that the Ravens D-Coordinators are products of the personnel, since neither of the coaches have been good HCs.

What Games were you watching?

Look at the whole season, Our D has been basically carrying the team.

It is a known Fact that if there is a bad offense,eventually that same offense will wear down a good defense.

All we need is a HC. I say Keep Jackson and Zimmer. They did pretty good running a Quitter's Team,**** They did it better than the quitter himself. I believe Emmitt gave the DC,OC, and the STC Full power to do their thing. I like Jackson as a OC. He has made Redman Look Like He never sold insurance. Roddy has improved as well.

Thing we Need

1. HC

2.OL

3.QB for the Future

4.Power RB

5. FS

See my post-the last 2 games. D allowed Arizona to come down the field to tie up the game and win in OT-offered little resistance.

D allowed 41 points to SeaHawks, 2 passing tds to Senacca Wallace and his fellow subs-not good.
