    Bring Martyball to the STL

    The rams organization has no choice but to change coaches in the offseason. The only shred of hope that the organization has towards selling any tickets for the 2008 campaign is bringing in a new coaching staff. Even if the Rams win a couple games in the second half of this season, the dome will still be a sad, empty, and desolate place to play football.

    The Rams should pursue Marty Schottenheimer. He is a proven head coach who knows how to win in the regular season and make the playoffs. Sure he hasn't had much success in the postseason, but he atleast gets there. Anyways that just means he is due.

    MARTYBALL in '08!

    Do you really think Marty would consider coming to St Louis? In San Diego he couldn't get along with his GM, so why would he want to make a lateral move here where he would be "sharing" power with Shaw and Ziggy? He likely would want to be paid big bucks -- something the Rams would be loathe to do. Although they could always raise ticket prices again to cover the expenditure -- pardon the sarcasm. I would love to see Marty come to St. Louis, as at the very least he would assemble a solid staff devoid of cronies with only a dash of nepotism (assuming Kurt would be available).

    Oh and WELCOME TO THE CLAN !!!! Tommy G.

    Agreed, and that same theory goes for Cowher also.

    Marty reminds me too much of Chuck Noll. Don't get me wrong. Very good coach, but won't get us to the Super Bowl.

    You're dreaming, why would Cowher want to come here. He will want control which I doubt we give him, he will want a ton of money which I doubt we will give him. So it's great to say we want a proven top notch coach, but reality says the Rams probably won't give that much to get one of them.

    Re: Bring Martyball to the STL

    Since we're talking about coaches that we probably can't afford, and would love to bring in, i don't think i've read about the Big Tuna as a possible hire. Comments?

    Martyball? If we're going to go after a veteran head coach, I'd rather get someone who has had success in the playoffs. I wouldn't mind seeing Cowher, but I don't think he'd go to St. Louis and they wouldn't pay him if he would.

    I don't know about the Super Bowl, but right about now I'd settle for "respectable" and a winning record ... two things that have become extremely elusive ... How many coaches get fired after coaching their team to a 14-2 record ?? He's got to be the only one in history ... Cowher is a pipe dream at best ...

    Re: Bring Martyball to the STL

    It strikes me as somewhat funny that so many fans complain about Linehan's conservative playbook while others (and possibly the same fans as before) turn around and mention Marty Schottenheimer as a candidate to be the next head coach.

    I agree Nick. I hate this playbook, I hate the routes we run no RAC period.

    Not sure what Marty would do with our skill guys.
