Rob Ryan to the New Orleans Saints? Maybe he wouldn't be a bad choice, but he would certainly be an unexpected one.

My first reaction when I learned that Ryan is a leading candidate for the Saints' defensive coordinator job was the same as many others who aren't too keen on the idea. Ryan seems uncomfortably similar to former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams in so many ways, from his super-sized ego to the coaching roots they both share under Buddy Ryan.

Even before the bounty scandal erupted, Saints coach Sean Payton had already shoved Williams out the door because their personalities clashed so severely. Williams was seen as a loose cannon -- the same character flaw that seemed to be an issue with Ryan at times with the Dallas Cowboys.
