    I could actually see that....more likely than us bringing him here to be our DC.

    Re: If Rex Ryan leaves.....

    It's funny - everyone sees Rex as their HC because of the defense - the Jets forum for example. This was the problem with Marvin Lewis, he doesn't run the defense - his DC does!

    The HC has to have a whole different set of skills - managing OC and DC, instill team culture and spirit, media, working with the pro and college personnel people, etc. etc. This is why Team culture etc. is such a concern to hiring teams and a negative for Rex - "players coach", too soft, team will run over him like the Ravens D last year (see Bart Scott tossing ref flag, T Sizzle every other week, CMac, etc. etc.)

    Don't you think Marvin would have a much better defense in Cincy if that was his job?

    That's why Rex has not, and might not, get a HC job. He's not being hired to be a DC with HC pay.

    You need a strong personality, and a man that commands respect. I was thinking Mattison, or Pagano.

    lack of success in Detroit doesn't mean much as messed up as that franchise is.
    I heard Rob Ryan was going to Cleveland to be DC but not official yet.

    Re: If Rex Ryan leaves.....

    I want Mike Pettine...

    If Rex is the #1 mastermind behind this Organized Chaos Defensive Scheme, Mike is #1a. He is Rex's right hand man. If Rex's goes, he will become Rex's DC if the Ravens don't block the move. Obviously to block the move, he becomes our DC by default.

    FYI..it looks like Nolan is going to Denver to be DC. I'd be happy with Mattison or Pettine too.

    Re: If Rex Ryan leaves.....

    Forget Fangio, as was stated in an article about this, players view him as too uptight to really be an effective DC for our group. Pettine is likely going WITH Rex Ryan to be his DC, unless Harbaugh can sell him on staying as a DC here. Most likely moves would be Brooks, Pagano, or Mattison. Not sure if there's anyone worth considering who is currently unemployed...

    FWIW I heard a very well respected national writer(THINK it was Jason Cole) on the radio say that he is hearing that Schottenheimer is the leader so far,but pretty much everyone else says its Ryan.

    Re: If Rex Ryan leaves.....

    it looks pretty obvious it will be Ryan...Spagnuolo is getting a 2nd interview, but it's pretty telling that Ryan is the only candidate still in the playoffs and there has not been a hire yet, nor was there much activity this week. Rex will either be hired next Tuesday or the week after the SB, depending on if we win this week or not.

    I worry about his replacement, but I have full confidence in our staff to get the right guy in. I just hope whoever it is meshes and gels well with the players here. While we can't let them run the asylum, we also don't want a coach that alienates Ray, Ed Reed, etc.

    I always wanted Mike Singletary as our DC but with Rex leaving i see Harbaugh and Ozzie getting somebody from Philly or the college ranks
