Ok guys so with Gregg Williams being AWOL currently and not having a TRUE defensive coordinator, what about bringing Lovie Smith back? He did a great job with us back in the day and with him getting the ax in Chicago, opens up the possibility of a reunion. I would love it honestly. We have a top 10 defense now, I think Lovie could turn it into top 5 or close to being number 1. What do you all think?

I definitely wouldn't be against it, however I don't feel our players our suited for the tampa 2 style he ran in Chicago. esp Finnegan, Jenkins and Laurinaitis

Smith's scheme doesn't fit what the Rams do defensively. Rather have Williams at this point or someone from Buddy Ryan's philosophy of defense.

Why would Lovie want to go from being a HC at a big market team to being a DC? One of 2 things happens when a HC gets fired:

1. They become a HC on another team.
2. They go into TV.

Na I know what you're saying definitely but look how peanut Tillman excelled in that defense. I can see alot of the same tendencies between Tillman and JJ and I think with cortland he can work in any system. Idk just my thoughts I would love to have him come in. I love the style he uses.

this, can we stop trying to change coordinators and maybe for once build some type of continuity? Also im pretty sure with some new safeties we will see a lot less cushion from our corners on the outside.

How is he the answer? We don't know if he will ever be reinstated by the NFL and if so do we really want that circus around a young impressionable team? If it came down to keeping Gregg Williams or landing Lovie I'm taking Lovie hands down.

With all the coaches getting canned today, it's a pretty good bet Lovie is gonna get another HC gig right away if he wants it...

I don't think I'd be holding my breath for Lovie as the DC...

I'd love it. James Laurinaitis is an ideal C-2 MLB. We'd need to find 2 safeties this off-season but we have all the pieces to be dominant in Lovie's scheme.

There is no continuity in Williams. He's only been our DC in name only.

But Lovie will get another HC job, too good of a coach not to.

Exactly what I was thinking. JL55 is like an undersized Urlacher IMO. We can get a FA safety and go safety somewhere in round 1 or 2 and be set. I think the defense would excel under Lovie right away. Like someone said it is more likely for him to get a HC position before all but you never know with some teams trying to go for youth at the HC position. If we had the opportunity to do so I would jump all over it.

Wouldn't be shocked to see Lovie in Arizona. A defense minded coach with the talent they already have in there and bring in an OC like Shurmur who just got fired also.

If Gregg Williams does get banned from the league or continues to be suspended, I see us just sticking with exactly what we are doing now.

I read somewhere that Fisher plans on making a choice on DC sometime in the next two weeks. Considering that a decision on Gregg Williams doesn't come until after the superbowl and Fisher doesn't plan on changing the system, I believe it's pretty obvious that the choice will come from in-house. That most likely leaves Blake Williams or Dave McGinnis. My money is on Williams.
