Based on what the OP presents here I’m definitely more in favor of Stefanski than a lot of the so called “likely” names being batted around by the media at present. Retreads and one year wonder coordinators don’t excite me much.
Don't post the win/loss stats as if Ron was the main figure behind that result was him.
Rivera didn't want McDermott, Jerry did. So he got a coordinator capable of fielding a top 5-10 defense put in place for him. Even after McDermott was gone, Wilks was running his defensive schemes not Ron's.
The last two years you got to see Rivera field his own defense and schemes and look at the result.
The defensive guru's special sauce 3-4 hybrid defensive scheme is now in consideration for one of the worst run D's in the history of the sport.
Ron + Above average LB + Average vet LB + elite ATG LB + highest sack count + big name Dlinesman (all above average) + one above average CB + one volatile CB that can have good or bad games + below average Safeties = one of the worst defense's this season and one of the worst run D's in the history of the sport.
That's what people are referring to when they talk about talent killer.
This is the result of Ron scheming, calling and planning the defense on his own terms.
But.....bbut.....but Washington was calling the plays. Until he wasn't and the defense still played comedy football.
