    I think it would have been shorter/easier if Billy just explained what didn't go wrong.

    Devany was just interviewed on the Bernie Mikalasz show on 101sports. Goto the web paage and scroll down to audio. And he pretty much was saying the same thing on the radio as he said in this interview

    Thanks, he is taking a new stand on the money issues... saying that the rams where not limited by money due to new ownership...

    I'm not sure why this has to be hashed over.

    We are moving forward with better people!

    I'm happy this guy and his guy spags are gone. Bottom line: They simply were not cut out to get the job done. As it turned out they were in over their heads.

    The futher we get away from de-spags the better.

    We should all be moving forward from that nightmare!

    i heard some clips on 101 today from the interview with him and he did distinctly say that he felt responsible and was to blame for what happened.

    i dont hold any grudges towards him, im frustrated but i believe he had the best intentions and still feels really bad about how things happened.

    Seriously, he didnt stop to think that maybe just maybe there was another coordinator that ran the same system. Rather than jumping the gun on Mcdaniels especially after the disaster in Denver. Thats his bad. Hes the GM (was).

    No! No empathy here...most of these problems where predicted well in advance to the 2011 season. EVERYone knew there would be labor issues during that year's off season. And considering the amount of money involved with the NFL, did ANYone predict it was going to be a short lockout?
    **
    Was it a surprise that Pat Shurmur would leave for another team, considering he was courted the previous year? And how long had it been since Georgia Frontiere had passed away and these tax issues where a secret; didn't Devaney attend college and study business?
    **
    And what was going through Devaney's head when they where interviewing J. McDanials? What on earth convinced Devaney the Rams could run the spread offense when, as he said in this interview, the Rams had an "old roaster" and that they where" bitting the bullet" to scrap and rebuild. The J. McD thing kinda "blewup" on Devaney and Spags--you think! NO one saw that coming, even though it was evident something was drasticlly wrong with the scheme after the second pre-season?
    **
    Real reasons why Devaney got fired, he did a piss poor job running the team. Knowing forehand there would be issues and problems, he failed to plan--no excuse there let alone a reason. Totally blew it with the J. McD acquistion; failed in acquiring any depth of talent.

    What went wrong with the Rams?
    Well, more often than not, the other team scored more points
