NFL Network: Rams want Greg Williams
NFL Network just said the Rams are close to hiring Jeff Fisher for their new head coach, and Fisher wants Greg Williams for defensive coordinator. The Rams just continue to find ways to screw with us!

NFL Network's LaCanfora on Williams' future
Inside Slant on NFL Network this morning:

LaConfora speculates that Jeff Fisher will take the Rams HC job. His history with Gregg Williams goes back to the Oilers.

Williams' contract expires after this season. LaCanfora says that Gregg loves Sean Payton and The Saints, but Williams is a Missouri guy.

Says that if Gregg goes with Fisher, expect Jack Del Rio to be our new DC.

I guess I would be happy either way.

Spags would be a good choice too.

I can go either way, i must admit that our lack of turnovers is frustrating, and that is supposed to be Williams's specialty.

The thing that i really like is that there is speculation that proven coordinators would covet a job with the Saints.

In years past, NO ONE with anything on the ball wanted to be here and ownership wouldn't pay them what they were worth anyway.

My my, how times change.......

Luckily there are plenty of nice options if Williams were to leave. I would love to see what Williams can do with a full season of Wilson and Junior starting.

Spags is strongly rumored to the Eagles and I would absolutely cream in my pants if we got him. Del Rio is a good defensive coach, just not HC material... both strong options. Hell I'd even try to get our coach back from the Broncos... they've been pretty stout.

I hope we keep GW. If not, I'd love to see Del Rio.

I don't think GW goes to another team to be a DC...

I don't see him leaving to be a HC. He loves him some Bree's and Payton.

so his next turnover will be to the Rams?

I think the GW era is over. Our defense is just not solid enough for me to say "we need to keep him". I think anyone would be an upgrade at this point. We also need some personnel changes on the field. Just imagine if we had a lights out Defense to go along with the offensive juggernaut
