    So Chris Gasper tweeted tonight that with all the fits that Rob Ryan has given the Pats, doesnt belichick have to consider bringing him in? I personally love the idea, but i feel like coach is too proud to bring in help. Thoughts?? Imagine how much more hype Pats/Jets would get.

    Disable Jersey

    Why would the Cowboys let him make such a lateral move?

    The main credibility to this thought is that Rob has worked under BB before and while Jason Garrett might turn out to be a great coach, he certainly doesn't have the resume of turning coordinators into head coaches that BB does. I imagine that is Rob's ultimate aspiration.

    Personally, I would love to see us bring in a solid DC to help out BB. Our best defenses have been when Bill was aided by Romeo or Dom Capers.

    The Pats-Jets games aren't hyped enough already?

    But seriously, I'd take him.

    How about Rex as DC? I have put money on the guy getting fired pretty soon.

    Wouldn't work. Rob Ryan seems to run the defense in Dallas and is accustomed to that. I think BB likes to run the defense his own way. I doubt Rob would be able to adjust to that. In short, even if he were to be in New England, our defense would look like our defense rather than the Cowboys defense.

    What we really need to get is a proper defensive backs coach, and probably a wide receivers coach for that matter.

    This. The only way we'll see Belichick and Rob Ryan together again before Rob's contract runs out is if Belichick moves to a front office role and Rob becomes the head coach.

    Why don't the Pats hire their long lost brother Dick to come in and do catering? At least we'll get to hear quips from Rex like, "Now that Pats have Dick they'll be eating better those bastids!"

    Honestly, I don't want that nut running up and down the sidelines screaming at officials acting like a jerk. No thanks.

    The same reason the Browns did?

    Did you see his antics on the sideline? No way that happens on a BB team, don't care how talented of an DC he is.

    BTW, the Pats defense looked pretty good themselves, that 3 and out to give Tom & co. one last chance may be the turning point to build a Super Bowl caliber defense.

    I see Rob Ryan as the next Dolphins HC before I see him as our DC.

    Ihedigbo appears to have gone a long way to solving some of the problems of Safety (for the short term at least). There's still some big question marks at linebacker outside of Jerod Mayo, and well he's returning from injury.

    The Defense appears to be getting better each week, which is pleasing.

    I actually mentioned this last week when talking about Ryan and certain people on here thought I was committing sacrilege and over-stating Ryan's success as a DC since he left the Pats.

    As Deus mentions, Ryan would have to get fired from the Cowboys or not sign a new contract. Neither of which is likely to happen anytime soon.

    As for Belichick being too proud, I have a suggestion for you. Go and read Patriots Reign. Go and read Education of a Coach. Go and watch the NFL Films episodes on Belichick. If there is one thing that Belichick can do is admit when he needs help.

    I honestly believe it's more likely that Pepper Johnson gets the DC position (he's already wearing the headset) than it would be for BB to bring in someone from the outside next season.

    The Browns fired Ryan when they fired Mangini. Why would the Cowboys fire Garrett in his first season??

    Belichick doesn't believe in paying his coordinators very much. Guys that have had success or a long career won't come here. Really the only negative thing Charlie Weis said about BB in his book was how little they paid and it was because of BB--not ownership.

    The last thing Rob Ryan wants is to toil as DC in BB's shadow. He wants to be a head coach like his brother. Hell, he already acts like one on the sideline; why Garrett lets him carry on like that is anybody's guess.

    amazing post.[..short...succinct...DEFINITELY possible....I mean it makes such perfect sense....Wrecks was drawn to the AFC East because of his huge ego and jealousy of Belichick...he took a team that was drowning with one nostril above water and turned them into a defense heavy, loosey goosey, us-against -the -world team of characters.

    His twin brother wants everything his green clad brother has and wants to show the world HE is the better pantload coach of the two...where better than Miami, post the unbelievably ridiculous tenure of Tony "Excitable Fat Thug Guy" Sparano....?

    Can you imagine the media frenzy around here if this ever occurred? In fact, why WOULDN'T this be not only the next step for Rob Ryan, but the BEST step?

    Football writers would garner enough material from one season of this to last a decade.
