    Buddy Ryan's son looks like a great option if you ask me. He learned from one of the best, has past DC experience, and the way he's 'jolly' looking in his photo almost guarantees he's a fun guy to be around (good recruting sign).

    Also, that Szabo guy really looks like he has his sh*t together.

    Bored and concerned...I really wish I knew who Les was considering for DC. I wish I had his email so I could send him Rex Ryan's name! :)

    What...too long to read?

    Oh well...if we want an exciting defense, Rex Ryan is our man. His dad is the king of blitz! He'd blitz on probably 70-80% of all plays.

    He's awesome...he's well versed in:

    46 - from his dad Buddy
    4-3 - from Marvin Lewis
    3-4 - from Mike Nolan

    Man..he could do some damage with those blitzes on college QBs, especially ones that are somewhat inexperienced.

    ok, well..after another round of "Edwards will be announced shortly", we are back for another round of "Edwards not likely to be DC". So..this thread could be relevant again in the oft-repeated cycle of DC rumors. :(

    Looks like Rex Ryan is taking over the Baltimore DC job, so scratch him. I'm really liking this Johnnie Lynn guy - former DC for the NY GIants when they had those great D's a few years ago. He's now a secondary coach (and was at NY too)...so he may be willing to 'boost' his career back up to DC status.

    Since he was secondary coach, we can pull in those blue chip DB recruits again - and I'm sure he learned a thing or two from Lewis and Nolan - in addition to his previous mentors (Jon Fox was one) and own experience. He's fully vested in the NFL pension plan, so unlike Camp he doesn't have to wait around for a big bonus (Campo 1 year away damnit!..or else who knows, LSU bound?).

    Let me add a quick note on Krumrie. While I wouldn't want him to leave the Bills, if he did, coming to LSU would be awesome. I love the guy.

    You want to know how tough and well respected this guy is? When he arrived with the Bills, during his first training camp, to get his respect from the Bills D-line, he challenged each of them to a wrestling match. Now this a D-line that features pro bowlers Sam Adams and Pat Williams, and DE Aaron Schobel. They laughed at him and took him up on the challenge. Well lets just say Krumrie went through 2 guys and had them down on the ground in less than a minute.

    I hope he doesn't leave Buffalo, but if he does, please make it LSU.

    Ok, it's no longer up in the air. Wish I had Les' email...I know he could care less who I am, but I'd feel better if I sent him Lynn's link :eek:
