    Marty Schottenheimer

    Marty Schottenheimer

    I know he's not looked upon highly but the Rams are looking for a veteran coach to help rebuild the franchise. ala Dick Vermeil. He still coaches, stays active in football. He isn't a long term solution (2-3 years) but he could instill a system, hire the correct assistant coaches, help turn the team back around talent wise and if history is any indicator, put some wins on the board.

    The key with Schottenheimer is that he knows how to build a franchise. In 3 years he had the Chargers winning their division and stacked with talent. He won in Cleveland, he won in Kansas City, he won in San Diego.

    Second, he knows how to attract and develop quality assistants. Cowher, Edwards, Cameron, Dungy, Sparano, Cunningham, Mike McCarthy and Wade Phillips all worked under the guy. The Rams haven't had a coach for more than 4 years since John Robbinson. They need to develop a framework where they develop coaches as well as recruit from within.

    Lastly, he knows how to win with the players he has. No excuses put forward, he develops talent and wins with it and wins quickly. When he was in Washington, he went 8-8 with Tony Banks as his starting QB for 14 games.

    The next time Marty fails will be the first time he's failed.

    I like Marty Schottenheimer. In fact, he was a guy I very much wanted when we ended up with Scott Linehan. He is an excellent football man and was successful throughout his entire career. Critics will point to his lack of playoff success, but this does not detract from his overall body of work. He's a disciplinarian, yet was never so rigid that his players didn't respect him. However, he is 70 years old, and I don't know if he's the guy you'd want in here when we are so desperate for stability moving forward and knowing he'd be a short term solution. Like you said, since John Robinson, the Rams coaching carousel has been crazy.

    You've outlined a pretty good argument, though, and I've always respected Schottenheimer.

    Re: Marty Schottenheimer

    The only things Brian shares with Marty is his last name and gene pool.

    Marty's a proven winner who builds successful franchises. Brian's a crappy offensive coordinator who is likely to be run out of New York.

    Marty wouldn't be my first choice either, but I've heard much worse suggestions.

    Re: Marty Schottenheimer

    I like Marty, but he has a long standing karma issue in the playoffs with some of the most heartbreaking defeats in NFL history ("The Drive" and "The Fumble").

    That said, maybe Marty's bad luck would cancel out the Rams bad luck and we might have something. Kind of like two negatives making a positive?

    how old is the guy? but if he's got the cv. Let the best man get the job.

    edit: just saw he was about 70. a little on the older side. Whether age is a factor is one thing, but i'd rather get a coach that we might have around for 5-10 years.

    He has a good resume, but I'm afraid he's not the answer for the Rams at this particular time.

    Works for me if we don't get Fisher.

    Re: Marty Schottenheimer

    Like others have said, I wanted him instead of Linehan way back when, but at this point I don't see it being a good desescion to bring him in I (even if he wanted to). At his age, he may no longer have the fire that needs to burn 24/7 to be an NFL head coach.

    Re: Marty Schottenheimer

    As I stated last week, he just won his first championship as a coach...in something called the UFL. He was essentially running the show out of a trailer in the Marriott parking lot. The man is the #6 winner (ALL TIME) in the NFL. When a man of this stature is doing what he is doing...I guess we have our answer about how he may not have the "fire" to still be a head coach.

    That's the UFL, his team literally had a one in four chance of winning the championship by just showing up lol.

    Re: Marty Schottenheimer

    I would love him to our coach. He can build the organization into a winner and develop a coach to take over when he retires. If we don't get Fisher and end up with a coordinator, Marty could come in with a role like Parcells had with the Dolphins.
