I've lost a job before and it sucked.

    Better luck to Spag's replacement! Hopefully a better future is on its way!

    this is the move that I'm not 100% behind, but <shrug> do feel it need to be made. Bittersweet is def the word to describe this.

    Re: Breaking News: Steve Spagnuolo is fired.

    This is a rather compelling point in Ram history and tradition. Our newish owner has the opportunity to put his complete stamp on his investment. Do we move forward in a way that gets us back to the upper echelon of the NFL? Do we stop the revolving door and gain front office and performance consistency? Do we make St Louis a place others want to be part of?

    All of this is possible and I am extremely hopeful that Stan gets it right. This is his first real chance at setting it up to match his goals and objectives which I am sure is simply building a winning tradition and adding to the storied history of the Rams.

    It will be an interesting off season folks.

    Agreed. If you look at the state of the Rams now, and when Linehan left, it's night and day. We won't necessarily need a roster purge when the next coach comes in, we'll have:

    a franchise quarterback ready to bounce back
    an aging but still determined star running back
    a young set of offensive tackles (wherever they end up on the line)
    a quality interior offensive line
    two great defensive lineman
    a (deservedly) probowl caliber MLB

    The jury is still out on the tight end and receiving corps, but the argument could be made that they're an asset as well. Most importantly is that the team is much younger, and less bogged down by the salary cap, allowing the next coach to be aggressive in free agency if he sees fit.

    Kudos to Spags and Devaney for righting the ship, it's just a shame they'll have to watch someone else take it from here.

    Re: Breaking News: Steve Spagnuolo is fired.

    Ron Bartell on 101ESPN just said

    Clearly the Rams have hired two coordinators in Linehan and Spags but it just hasnt worked out. So if I had any say I would definitely hire someone with experience.
