    I agree, it is a bit of a nail biting time for Ram fans. The decisions that the organization makes this week are huge. We have our football personnel making the majority decisions, so it better be the right choice. This will vindicate the calls for football savvy individuals to make the personnel and coaching decisions. And yes, Shaw needs to just sit there and nod along and keep his trap shut...

    Nervous when I read that Haslett is still right in the mix, but excited at the thought that Spagnuolo could fall into place.

    I believe the word you are looking for is dread.

    It may ultimately come down to how imminent a sale is.

    If Haslett is the pick, I hope the Rams' new owners, of whom we would know shortly, are quite loaded.

    Devaney being familiar and/or impressed with a candidate that also applied for the Falcons job last year concerns me. Why? Because the candidates didn't get the Falcons job. Then the old "Friend of Scott Linehan" rule also comes into play with who? Spags I believe?

    The only candidate he has seen in the headcoaching role is Haslett. Was Devaney impressed? Who knows?

    I do like the fact that the hiring process seems to be very thorough and that we have 5 finalists and not 2.

    Re: Anybody slightly nervous??? excited what???

    I'm very nervous about this decision.

    The fact that Haslett would even been anywhere near the finals makes me extremely skeptical about the process and yes, the people making decisions (Devaney).

    But then, at the same time, I do like the other 4 candidates, so that gives me hope.

    Just let it be one of the other 4 please. That's all I ask.

    Great post Steve !!

    Fingers crossed, and hoping he get's this thing right. We've seen what happens when the Rams don't. This is a BIG DEAL for Billy to hit this one, being the newly appointed, "MAN IN CHARGE". Whatever the choice, we won't know the true results for a year or more.

    I agree,maineram. It's only the third step - the first two being shedding of Shawgmunt & appointing BD - on a long road.

    My feelings are mixed like most of us but I think the optimism portion of that mix is a lot higher than at this point last year.

    Here are some dates that we can look to for other big moments on this journey.

    Feb. 18-24: NFL Scouting Combine, Indianapolis, Ind.
    Feb. 19: Deadline for clubs to designate franchise and transition players.
    Feb. 26: Deadline for submission of qualifying offers by clubs to their restricted free agents whose contracts have expired and to whom they desire to retain a right of first refusal/compensation.
    Feb. 26: Deadline for clubs to submit offer of minimum salary to retain exclusive negotiating rights to their players with fewer than three seasons of free agency credit whose contracts have expired.
    Feb. 27: Veteran free agency signing period begins.
    Feb. 27: Trading period begins.
    March 22-25: NFL Annual Meeting, Dana Point, Calif.
    April 17: Signing period ends for restricted free agents.
    April 24: Deadline for old club to exercise right of first refusal to restricted free agents.
    April 25-26: NFL Draft, New York City.
    May 18-20: NFL Spring Meeting, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
    June 1: Deadline for old clubs to send tender to unsigned unrestricted free agents to receive exclusive negotiating rights for rest of season if player is not signed by another club by July 22.
    June 1: Deadline for old clubs to send tender to unsigned restricted free agents or to extend qualifying offer to retain exclusive negotiating rights.
    June 15: Deadline for old clubs to withdraw original qualifying offer to unsigned restricted free agents and still retain exclusive negotiating rights by substituting tender of 110 percent of previous year's salary.
    June 28-July 1: NFL Rookie Symposium, Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
    Mid-July: Training camps open.
    July 22: Signing period ends at 4 p.m. ET for unrestricted free agents who received June 1 tender.
    Aug. 9: Pro Football Hall of Fame Game, Canton, Ohio.
    Aug. 13-17: First preseason weekend.
    Sept. 1: Roster cutdown to maximum of 75 players.
    Sept. 5: Roster cutdown to maximum of 53 players.
    Sept. 10-14: Regular season kicks off.


    Unknown: Rams first win of year.

    nervous--not yet

    Right now, I like the process. I figure about 2 weeks (3 weeks would be stretching it) after the Super Bowl would be about right to announce the new HC after having interviewing possible canidates

    I may worry AFTER who is announced as HC.

    I have absolute confidence in Devaney, but that doesn't mean I'm not excited and worried that the best guy now, might not be the best guy overall. Thing is, picking a coach is almost as much of a crapshoot as the draft is.

    We've had our share of busts, let's score a huge win on this one!

    I'm just curious is all. Am I nervous? Some what. But I trust Devaney enough.

    Devaney, if you care about this team... fire the offensive coordinator!!!!

    Right now I am hopeful but skeptical when it comes to Devaney. Confidence in him will come when the good results do.
