He may not fit here either -- according to the Baltimore Sun.

What went wrong for Ryan in Baltimore?

First of all, he is not the corporate type owner Steve Bisciotti is looking for. Ryan is old school. He doesn't care about appearances or fancy words. He wants to draw up plays, drink beer and coach on Sundays.

Also, the Ravens weren't real happy with the way Ryan handled middle linebacker Ray Lewis and safety Ed Reed. Lewis dominated this team with his play on the field, and his personality off it. He ran the show. Reed often free-lanced and gambled. He was supposed to be more disciplined this season, but he wasn't. Like Lewis, he did basically what he wanted to do.

The Ravens spent a lot of time priming Ryan to become a head coach in the NFL, but when it opened here in Baltimore, there wasn't a lot of interest. But if he leaves to become the defensive coordinator for the Bengals, he will come back to haunt the Ravens.

Yes, Ryan is that good, and he will be on a mission.

This is the same question I posed about 4 days ago...if the team he has been with isnt interested...why should we be? Besides, if Blank and Co. were sold on him, he'd already have received an offer. He may end up here tho cause no one else has the balls to give us a try.

I still can't figure out why those idiot Patriots would ever hire a loser like Belichick from Clevelend when after 5 years he had only 1 winning season Cleveland wanted absolutely nothing to do with him after Belichicks pathetic perfromance.

Belichick's last year in Cleveland he lost 11 games......why would anyone hire him?

The fact is, sometimes in the NFL things just aren't a good fit for a coach. Apparently, Ryan isn't a good fit up there but that does not necessarilly mean he'll be a bad one here.

I think it is for the same reasons that we aren't keeping Zimmer or Jackson. They are looking for a fresh start and new faces. Rex is too close to the current situation and a new HC will bring in their own coordinators, so he is just becomes the odd man out.

Rex was strongly considered in Baltimore and even still has an outside shot

there regardless of what you read.

it is a compliment to him that he was even considered.

tell me the last time a head coach has been fired for a poor record and an assistant

from that same staff was promoted. it just doesnt happen. it is guilt by association.

there's just too much negativity.

were jackson and zimmer even considered here when petrino bolted?

if the ravens had made the playoffs this year and brian billick decided to retire, rex ryan

would have been the slam dunk choice to be the coach.

The reason Ryan isn't being considered in Baltimore is because they don't want a defensive minded head coach. Their offense has been holding them back for years, not their defense. Look at who they are trying so hard to get, the OC from Dallas. Why? Because they need somebody that can come in and fix their offense, they already have the personnel on defense. The Falcons did the the same thing last season with Petrino. We needed a HC that could come in here and fix our passing game because we were consistently last in passing offense. They need somebody that can come in and fix their offense with a DC that can maintain their defense. That's why Ryan is not being considered. Defense has not been their problem, so they are not looking for a defensive HC.
