  • Greg Mattison Gone, Chuck Pagano In

    http://blogs.baltimoreravens.com/201...e-coordinator/


    I think we need this change.

    From what I've read, a lot of the players love Pagano. Hopefully he will be a lot more aggressive than Mattison.

    I like this move, but it will be interesting to see what type of scheme Pagano wants to run. I'm guessing we keep it similar to what we've had, a hybrid, but I hope that he brings a different mentality to the defense.

      I think we will see more blitzing and being wildly aggressive on any down. His pedigree comes from the U so he is well in tune with our core guys...

          I don't think we need to update too much of the LB core but I would like us to add another pass rusher on the edge in the mold of Woodley or a Dumervil

            What about moving Roy Anderson over to help Hostler with the WR's and Zorn with Flacco and trying to get someone like Steve Atwater from the Skins to coach the secondary? He's currently just a coaches intern and has a lot of knowledge and experience, he helped make a marked improvement to Laron Landry and the rest of the secondary in DC... he could only serve to help us here and I with Pagano having his thumb print on the secondary it would be a good fit...

              We definitely need another pass-rusher (along the line or LBers), but I think we also need to add a quality #2 ILB as well. That position hurt us as much as any this past season. I'm not sure how Pagano is going to use that position compared to how Mattison did, but I don't think it matters since none of the guys we have are starting caliber anyways. I think we need to add about three guys to be honest, our OLB depth is non-existent and IDK how much we can count on Kindle to return.

                I agree with you on that one.. Kindle is a huge question mark. All signs do point to us resigning him and giving him a shot at training camp.

                You don't think Ellerbe and McClain are a good platoon solution for the other ILB?

                  I think Ellerbe would be good, but I don't think he has the staff's support. He's easily the best ILB behind Lewis yet we all saw that stretch he went inactive for games, even while the other guys we were throwing out there were just plain bad. I'm definitely not a fan of seeing McClain get a lot of time on defense, he just doesn't have the instincts or quickness to make plays on the inside.

                    Ravens | Expected to hire Teryl Austin
                    Tue, 25 Jan 2011 09:13:51 -0800

                    The Baltimore Ravens have interviewed former University of Florida defensive coordinator Teryl Austin for their secondary coach vacancy and he's considered the leading candidate to land the job, according to league sources with knowledge of the situation, reports Aaron Wilson, of NationalFootballPost.com. The Ravens have yet to announce that he's been hired, but friends of Austin say he's already been informed that he'll be hired.

                    Austin was a serious candidate and a so called "lock" for replacing Will Muschamp at UT. I think this is a great hire.

                      Sounds like a good move to me!

                        Im actually a fan of Phillips too... he is a thumper but he needs to work on his speed...

                          Phillips is interesting. I think he would really excel in a role where he just has to take on blockers and make plays near the LOS. Perhaps Pagano will utilize a player like him, instead of using our #2 ILB primarily in coverage.

                            That is actually a good idea... would surely extend #52's career a few more years if he didn't have to take on so many blockers

                              I'm not sure if Phillips could handle a full starting load, I was referring to more of a role-player duties for him. I'd prefer getting a well-rounded starter but with the needs this team has I think it will be hard to find one in the draft that we won't have to reach for. Free agency is usually pretty dull for the Ravens, although this year's free agency is pretty up in the air and we could see a lot of our own players leave.

                              Ideally I would pair Phillips with somebody that can be effective in coverage, somewhat in the mold of Gooden but actually a good player. Ayanbadejo might be a better comparison for what I'm looking for.
