    We lost London Fletcher (moment of silence) due to the fact some jag off wanted Jamie Duncan. London Fletcher (moment of silence) was the heart and soul of MY defense. Since he left, MY defense has tanked.

    Oh man, the failed Jamie Duncan experiment. Thanks for re-opening the wound.

    Re: Caplan: Sources say Rams to hire Shurmur as OC, Flajole as DC

    The fact that we let talented players go doesnt mean that we are going to win without talent. I dont see how that point proves that good coaching is going to produce a playoff caliber team with marginal talent.

    I fail to see how anyone is going to make the argument that saunders wasnt a good offensive coordinator or that haslett doesnt know defense. At the end of the day, we didnt have the talent to win.

    If we get better talent, we will do better. Coaching will help, but without better talent, we are deluding ourselves to think that we are going to be a winning team.

    Put another way, is there anyone on this board that believes that if spags was our coach this year we would have had a winning team with the talent that we had? If so, i think that you are thinking this guy is going to be a miracle worker and that wont be the case.

    Player personnel assesment is the most important component of success. Devaney appears to be a step in the right direction, but time will tell. The fact that we let good guys leave in the past (as all teams have done) reflects poorly on our player personnel assesments, not our coaching. However, in evaluating who left, you also have to consider cap impact.

    Clearly, the fletcher decision was a debacle of biblical magnitude. THat one killed us. Dont get me started again on pickett which was moronic given the money he got elsewhere.

    ramming speed to all

    I'm old school; the worst mistake the Rams ever made was letting Carroll go swimming without a bodyguard.

    I'll second that.

    And while I'll agree Fletcher was a mistake, most of those other guys on the list were inconsequential.

    The thing overlooked frequently I'm afraid is that all teams lose talented players. Look at any team since 00' and you'll find important players that they've lost. The real problem has been, the Rams have failed to replace even the mediocre players they've lost, not to even mention the really good ones like Fletcher. And the defensive scheme and coaching has been so bad for the last several seasons that I'm not sure we'd know if a player was actually any good anyway.

    I'll ask again, how the heck do you pronounce the name Flajole?

    We have to take it one step at a time.

    We are getting coaches, now we have to work on talent.

    This is great guys.

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