If the Rams were here I'd love to have Jesus follow me around for a week or so.
It doesn't matter if it's an up-and-comer or experienced hand, the Rams just need somebody to get it right.
I loved my time in Macomb. The people were great. Spent a few hours at the Parkside and the Change of Pace. I'm blanking out on the name of the restaurant we would go to _ would frequently see players there in the back room. Loved the little town square. No real funny stories off the top of my head, but camp up there was fun.
OMG. I'm hoping to get the transcripts at some point!
I would think Snead, as GM would've overseen that.
I did not. I do remember Warner signing autographs for maybe an hour after every practice (unless Brenda was at camp).
The "extension" was really a severance package in itself.
A couple years away _ minimum.
And to think, some people accuse Kevin of talking out of both sides of his mouth.
True, the piling on has been brutal with respect to Fisher. New coaches invariably bring in their own people, so it's doubtful many or any of the defensive staff is back.
I was surprised by the timing. Out of character for Kroenke. I know why the Rams wanted Fisher for Year 5 _ for the move _ but I would've made a change after last year. The Rams problems run much deeper than the head coach.
I think Kroenke will swing for the fences. I'd be very surprised if Harbaugh left Michigan. Hypothetically, wouldn't you take a "bridge-burner" if he could right the ship for even a few years.
So you've cracked the code! Congratulations.
OK, another answer disappeared. I'll try again. This is getting aggravating. Fassel is an excellent coach. As the saying goes, he's used to speaking in front of the entire team rather than one side of the ball. And at the end of the day, he's coach for just 3 games, the team's already eliminated from postseason consideration, so why fret over the interim?
It's way too early to pass judgment on Goff, we all know that. As I mentioned earlier, it wasn't exactly universal back in the pre-draft process that he was a franchise QB. I wouldn't say Goff's arm-strength is marginal, but he certainly doesn't have a cannon. In theory, his strengths are his accuracy and quick release. He still looks like he has a lot to learn. And obviously, he could use some help around him.
The first half was a clinic by the Patriots wasn't it? Brady was amazing for most of the night. Regardless of all their misdeeds in the past, the Patriots are a well-run, well-coached organization. But I don't think they're unbeatable. I'd love to see KC or Pittsburgh get a chance at them in the playoffs.
I think a general lack of accountability contributed to many of the team's problems. There was and is some good talent on the roster, just not enough of it. As you know, it's very difficult to win in this league without good QB play. But the team Rams fans thought they were getting when Fisher was hired _ strong defense and strong running game _ never really showed up in St. Louis and now LA.
Empty seats are a great motivator, especially five games into a home schedule.
Demoff said as much on Monday.
