    I don't know if its the OC... I just know that I don't want it to be.

    Brian Schottenheimer has received a lot of criticism for play design and play calling in Weeks 1-3 this year.

    I'm not going to say that this criticism undeserved, though I'm still hopeful that its premature.

    I do know this... I hope he succeeds.

    The reason is simple and, perhaps, obvious. I don't want Sam Bradford to have to learn yet another offensive system in 2014. Same goes for our young receiving corps.

    Does that mean I would stick with him regardless... no. But I think its a mistake for fans to advocate a quick trigger that would result in a change at the OC spot.

    I hope I still feel this way in December.

    What a great point. The last thing Sam needs is another offensive system to try and learn, so hopefully Schotty shows he's capable of making this work.

    Yes. There's a lot to be said for continuity. The last thing we need is to "start over" yet again. I still maintain that as these rookies/young skill players get better, Schottenheimer will open things up a bit.

    Yup, I fully expect him to become something he has never been...a highly respected OC. This guy was run out of town on a rail, in NY. His system had drug the Jets down the 29th in total offense by the time he was jettisoned. Only 6 more spots to fall, to be on par with that distinction. Odd hire by the Rams. This will probably get worse (is that even possible?) before it gets better. All those who predicted 9-11 wins...raise your hands nice and high.

    Re: I don't know if its the OC... I just know that I don't want it to be.

    I agree with that whole premise, because it has been in my mind since we fell behind AZ and then ATL followed by Dallas. There are many new pieces in the offense so we may be going through a "getting to know you" phase. I just hope its reason.

    My other concern is with our new DC. As much as we know this is Jeff Fisher's defense, the DC plays a big role otherwise why have one. Our defense has not been playing up to their talent level and I hope we are not in a rut with the new DC.

    Go Rams!

    I, for one, continue to hold out hope that Schotty does not prove to be Schitty......

    i'm incredibly conflicted

    if he's bad, he needs to fix it or he's gone..

    but then bradford would need to learn ANOTHER system...

    The Jets. We have the offensive coordinator from the Jets. Was there a worse offense in the last 7-8 years? Well, maybe ours, but the Jet's were a close 2nd.
