"There's nothing wrong with the playcalling."
"The playcaller has been demoted."
"Bulger's our QB and is well enough to play."
"Bulger will be benched."
What is going on here!?!?! Who's really in charge!?!?!?! Has Linehan totally lost control, or is he just becoming a flip-flopper?
I wouldn't doubt it if the front office called him in for a little chat and suggested as much...or else.
Rumor has it that Linehan slipped and fell while getting out the tub this morning and banged his head and ribs.
I guess my point is...
How can the team, the media or the fans support Linehan when it seems that Linehan doesn't support Linehan?
This doesn't surprise me at all. Not. One. Bit. I really get the feeling that nothing Linehan says in public means much.

The Rams are becoming boring to watch on the field but off the field, Linehan and his coaching staff are becoming entertaining. It is like a soap opera off the field. I think I will call it something like
The Rams and the Restless or
Days of our Rams
Their has been a lot of chaos surrounding the Rams of late and i'm sure Linehans head had been spinning. Now it's time to see if he can finally rally this team to victory, or if he's going to simply end up finish sinking with it.
This sounds a bit like a Monty Python movie scene:
Linehan: "I'm handing over the playcalling to Olson."
Fans: "Only a true Head Coach would hand the playcalling over to an assistant."
Linehan: "Well, then I'm taking back the playcalling."
Fans: "You are the Head Coach!"

zyggy's right hand man salaman must've done his magic
on linehan's attitude monday night...
seriously, how many of us really think linehan is making
all these decisions independently, free from interjections
by the FO?...
Last year, Linehan started the season by calling the plays. It didn't work. So he delegated to Olson. Fans cheered.
Now, Olson's playcalling isn't working, and Linehan is going back to calling the plays - THE VERY SAME APPROACH THAT DIDN'T WORK LAST YEAR.
Who should be calling the plays?
Well, I'm not sure there is anyone on the staff who could do a good job at this point, which is part of the problem with the Linehan regime.
What I don't understand is if the Linehan regime is so horrible at calling plays and directing an offense, how in the world were the Rams near the top of the heap last year? How did Bulger have his best year statistically and go to the Pro Bowl? How did Jackson have the 5th best all-purpose yardage total in NFL history and also go to the Pro Bowl? Could it be that there may be some extenuating circumstances this year?
I think the offense was good, but not great, overall last year. The Rams have a lot of talent on offense, so that should be expected.
There is no doubt that the injuries have taken a toll, I just don't buy that the team goes from scoring 22.9 points per game to 9.8 based on injuries alone.
