Will DeMeco Ryans be the defensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers next year?

The Athletic’s Jeff Howe joined Cattles & Ramie on Tuesday to discuss the possibilities of the Ryans leaving the 49ers’ coaching staff next season, the end of the Raiders and Patriots game and more NFL storylines.

Topics discussed include:

  • If DeMeco Ryans is a top head coaching candidate for the next round of searches
  • How being a defensive-minded coach won’t work against Ryans when he’s eventually hired as a head coach
  • Is Kyle Shanahan a candidate for Coach of the Year?
  • Where the ending between the Las Vegas Raiders and New England Patriots ranks among wildest NFL game endings
  • The Patriots have recently played in a way where they’re beating themselves
  • How the Colts lost a 33-point lead against the Minnesota Vikings last Saturday effectively ends the possibility of Jeff Saturday returning to the Indianapolis sidelines
  • Why teams haven’t signed Odell Beckham Jr. yet and will he even play this season?
