Friendship convinced Williams to leave Saints for Rams
1 Attachment(s)
Gregg Williams considers Jeff Fisher one of his best friends. When asked to join the St. Louis Rams' staff, he had to accept.

"I have a very close and tight circle of friends. Not many people get inside that circle," Williams said."He needed my help and I couldn't say no."

Williams agreed to leave the New Orleans Saints, where he helped win a Super Bowl, to become Fisher's defensive coordinator in St. Louis.

Williams has 22 years of coaching experience in the NFL, including six as Fisher's defensive coordinator with the Tennessee Titans. He left the 13-win New Orleans Saints for the two-victory Rams because of Fisher -- and says one of the things he likes most about Fisher is how cool he can be under fire.

2 years straight of losing in the playoffs due to defensive breakdowns.... granted the offense committed turnovers but they compensated for it.

When there is that little time left in a game and your opponent is 80 yards from scoring, and the opponent is not run by an "elite" tier QB, the expectation is the defense can at least hold them short of a TD, hold them to a field goal, or stop them on downs entirely.

Our defense made the 49ers look like the reincarnation of Joe Montana/Jerry Rice....

Later Gregg......

I wonder how much $ Fisher paid him to come to St. Louis.

To me , following SB44, our defense has had ZERO identity.
They sometimes do this....
They sometimes do this....
They sometimes do this....

I believe that our players found it impossible to find rhythm because of the lack of continuity.

They were forced to over think, instead of playing within a consistent framework which allows comfort until the opportunity to make a play arrived.
This season was comical to anyone that is not a Saints fan or a member of the Saints defense. BLITZ BLITZ BLITZ!

It's like the dude was mailing it in, or like an addict: "It will be different this time!"

Insanity. Bye Gregg.....

I know Williams wasn't out on the field, but come on!

Tell your players to flaming mug the receivers and cough up an illegal contact / defensive holding penalty and live to play another down.

Did Gregggggg not notice it was taking the 49ers 30+ seconds to make a 1st down after we went ahead on the JG score???? The clock and their offensive style played into our hands - until we had to get too cute blitzing. As much as we blitzed, we should have had 60 sacks this year.

No, GW should have told the defense to keep everything in front of you and AT WORST yield a FG and try to outscore them in OT.

Like I said before.

Coach Payton: I'm not going to fire you Gregg, but if your friend Jeff gets a head coaching job. I suggest you go.

Williams: OK
