I know the team has a game plan going in each week. As the game progresses and events occur, adjustments are mandatory to the point that they must be dynamic. That is what has been missing.
SL is too slow to adjust and other teams adjusted to our 1st half of play and dominated our team. At this point, 'Rain Man' Linehan is hopelessly floundering around with a brain cramp of not knowing how to use the tremendous talent he still has that is healthy on this team. He's inept.
I would like to know if he was selected because he came cheap? What was the attraction of the FO to this 'poser?' I have just changed my background screen on my PC to 'SLOP.' Please don't pee down my back and tell me it's raining. He is the weakest link!!! He was lucky that the players clicked last year and made it appear that he had some influence on the 8-8 season. Have we forgotten who is on our team and the tremendous upside to their talents if used correctly?

Rest assured, we have NOT forgotten who's on this team."Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat; long is the road thereto and rough and steep at first; but when the heights are reached, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning." --- Hesiod
I guess the real question is does he get a Muligan for this year?[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]Maybe not now, but soon.
Re: Huh?This team was loaded."Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat; long is the road thereto and rough and steep at first; but when the heights are reached, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning." --- Hesiod
Hub, um, offensively.
It sure wasn't the defense that got this team to 8-8.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]Maybe not now, but soon.

Re: Huh?Just Fix It
Re: Huh?To pick up with your metaphor, you must have slept through half the trial. I have repeatedly stated that the injuries have been a significant factor in the Rams' demise. My issue is that Linehan has done, in my opinion, a horrible job of dealing with the adversity he's faced.
thought the delegation of playcalling was a good move at the time, though I was disappointed that it was necessary as the whole point of hiring Linehan was to take advantage of his abilities demonstrated as Miami and Minnesota's OC.
It still his offense and his game plan. look at Norv in SD right now. They have a Hell of a team, but with that many new coaches coming in, I'm not shocked they are starting slowly.
As for Linehan being back next year, if I had to put money on it, I probably wouldn't bet against it.
That said, I see no reason to withhold my opinion that Linehan should be replaced this offseason.

I'm commenting on your post suggesting that Linehan was "told" to make changes and that he didn't decide and change his mind on his own. There is no way to know for sure so I don't think it's safe to assume they told him to, which is what I got from your post.
I think his explanation makes sense, he said what he thought after the game. Then he watched more film, talked with the staff, thought about it and changed his mind.
I'm not saying injuries are the only problem, they are a huge problem, but not the only problem.Originally Posted by ramsbruce
Sounds like a flopper-flip to me.
Before I get warmed up just let me say there's a dangerous level of sarcasm and irony in here. The 'Carbon-based lifeforms' was close to the bone.
Bulger said, in reference to this whole issue, something along the lines of "I guess he was sick of me telling him I was fine".
Might it then not be unreasonable to assume that having taken Bulger at his word, he then saw evidence that Bulger might not be? Willing to concede that it may be a bit late of course.
Also, why applaud a man for having the courage to change last season and then vilify him for it this season? He must have known the kind of negative post it would attract.
