Saints DC Rob Ryan reportedly “dropped the mic” when he left the Rams

The circumstances involving the quick departure of Rob Ryan from the St. Louis Rams to the New Orleans Saints as their defensive coordinator have been shrouded in a few question marks. However it is surfacing that Ryan may have done a move that singers use to show that they are done.

It’s actually become a sort of catchphrase for when we’re done talking to someone, you “drop the mic” to let them know. According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Ryan apparently did just that, but with something else.

Werder tweeted this about how Ryan revealed he was leaving his short tenure with the Rams:


“Rams coach Jeff Fisher says Rob Ryan told him he was leaving to work for Sean Payton by walking in office and dropping keys on his desk.”

It’s a puzzle though as to why Ryan would end things that way but dropping the keys off to Fisher may have been interpreted as doing it in a cold manner. Right before Ryan left the Rams, it was said that a sticking point between the two was Fisher wanted a 4-3 run defense while Ryan was adamant about using a 3-4 scheme which he is known for.

Both sides, Ryan and Fisher, seem to be happy with their current state as they head into the 2013 season so the tweet by Ed Werder concerning how Ryan left will likely be a non-issue as far as any concerns for the Saints are involved.

Re: Saints DC Rob Ryan reportedly “dropped the mic” when he left the Rams

I thought he was out of the discussion when he agreed - at least preliminarily - to take the DC job with the Rams, and other teams couldn't try to poach him any longer because of that.

So, it would seem weird that he would've suddenly announced Fisher that he was leaving to take a job with the Saints, since they would've had to talk with him even after he had already went to St. Louis.

Or maybe I'm just reading the situation wrong.

I heard that Fisher couldn't understand all the schemes and that he trusted in Spags!!

If the HC wants to run a 4-3 and you prefer the 3-4 then move on.

Well, Nolan was willing to work under those circumstances with Smith and the Failclowns, so I guess it's all relative.
