I wouldn't mind it at all. Although I hate the Ravens, I love the way they play defense.

He supposedly is not excluded from consideration for the HC job in Baltimore but my guess is they want to go outside the organization for someone who may have a clue as to how to fix the QB situation.

Ryan would be a definite plus, but I wonder if that is what Ryan sees as a proper step to a HC position and if Tomlin might be looking for some young gun defensive position coach to build his own coaching family.

good questions...

However, I see Tomlin as a coach that would rather build a team then build his own legacy in the NFL.

I love the Raven's defense. We have the players to do it here... maybe even better then the Raven's do it.

Yeah.. I say pick him up, even sit him as a LB coach until LeBeau retires, then just move him up.

I think that would be a very good move, actually. Although he's in great shape for his age, let's face it, LeBeau isn't getting any younger and we may have to think about a possible replacement for him sooner rather than later anyway. I also don't want to take the chance we'll get stuck with another Tim Lewis.
