    News conference at 1pm ET

    Linehan is out. The Rams have a news conference scheduled in less than an hour.

    Chip Rosenbloom at the mic. Talking about Scott. He is an honorable man. We should all aspire to be men like Scott Linehan. All of us need to work harder to win games.

    Introduces Jim Haslett. *clapping*

    Haslett thanks Chip for the job and feels poorly about getting the job under the circumstance. He has not addressed the team as HC.

    Q. How much better can this team get.
    A. Try to compare Rams to Bills, Bills have swagger, confidence and will to win. We need to play fast and do different things.

    Q.#1 Priority
    A. Meet with all the players
    Talk to coaches, talk about what it take to win games.

    Q. Bulger?
    A. Sit down and decide.

    Q. Are you different coach now than in NO
    A. This was sprung on me at 1am, a first year HC is hard.

    Q.?
    A. I havent had time to think

    Q. How about the HC job next year.
    A. I am looking at this year and trying to win the next 12 game. Players will play hard or be gone. That is a promise.

    Q. Did you have to think about taking the job.
    A. Took the call at 1:15am, was in bed, I had some questions about the organization and got some answers.

    Q. Did you say yes based on conditions via personel
    A. Talk to Jay about that

    Q. Who will run the D
    A.? missed it

    Q. Brown?
    A. I signed off on it. I supported the HC at the time.

    Q. Is it possible to instill your personality in this team.
    A. The Saints (under Haslett) thought they could beat the Rams up.

    Q. Same personality in the O
    A. I hope so.

    Q. You are a bunch of losers.
    A. We played well yesterday and saw some good things vs. the Bills. NFL=there will be mistakes every game, the key is how you handle it.

    Q. First change?
    A. I have not made any concrete decisions

    Q. Message to players
    A. We will right the ship.

    Q. Talent?
    A. We have enough talent. Bills do not have more talent.

    Q. SJ a leader?
    A. Yes, a heck of a player. He needs to step up a little bit more?

    Q. Bye week good?
    A. Probably a good thing. Schedule will not change. Four days off.

    Q. Are you a good HC?
    A. You decide.

    Q. Satisfied w/ Defence?
    A. C'mon. We played ok yesterday. Best game of the year, they had fun jumping on piles.

    Q. How frustrating were the 3 first games.
    A. We played some of the better teams, we did not play well.

    Q. Eager to get HC again?
    A. Eager to win games and stay in STL. We let Scott down.

    Q. Talk to Scott?
    A. Not yet. Scott did a great job of talking to team.


    That was it. ESPN MMQB thought he said the right things. Concentrate on athletisism. Fly around. This team could be competative if they get back to playing fast.

    They also talked about Haslett in his second HC job. Second HC job is usually better. Haslett wants to put his tough, hard-hitting personality into this team. He guarenteed that this team will play hard. Hopefully by the end of the year this team will be in contention. Haslett is a football guy of few words. If players do not step up, Haslett will not stand for it.

    A defeated look of consternation, dissappointment, or even pain. The name derives from the look one often gets when challenged by a large BM.

    .
    In the bucks early years Mckay was then the coach was ask a question by his team. What is wrong with the team. He said that is easy you guys can't block, tackle, you are slow, can't catch, can't throw and before it is over I am going to get rid all of you. Time for the players to step up now.

    Another great McKay quote occurred when a sports writer asked him after another losing effort what he thought of his teams execution. McKay replied he was in favor of it.

    Had to love John McKay.
