The legendary greg williams.. 4 times in 12 years jeff fisher had a top 10 defense. One of those 4 years was with greg williams as DC. 2 of fisher's best defenses were while williams was linebacker coach in 95 and 96 when we finished 3rd and 6th respectively which makes you wonder why those teams were not better but that is another debate. Williams took over in 97 and his first 3 years we were ranked 22nd, 14th and 18th respectively in total defense. So even with our outstanding 2000 defense the average ranking in the williams years was just 14th. Can you say average? In williams' 3 years in buffalo as HC the defense had an average ranking of 13th. In his 4 years as DC for the redskins the defense has averaged 13th. During schwartz's 7 year run the average defense has been ranked 19th. 14th vs 19th. Not a huge difference there and we all know that schwartz has had more to deal with in injuries and cap casualties.
