    I doubt the Rams will go after Mike Tice, but I am glad to see Mike Martz gone.

    Man, Mort's really going out on a limb with those two reports. I guess he felt the need to report something safe and accurate after he completely bombed on the Browns' firing of Phil Savage.

    Re: Rams | Martz out as head coach

    I wonder if Mortenson gets his "scoops" from Bernie. Seriously, this guy is supposed to be a reporter?

    Hey, if he can do it, so can I...here's my news:

    I report that gas and heating oil prices will be higher in 2006.
    I report that the Colts might be in the Super Bowl.
    I report that the White House is not really white, but more of an eggshell color.

    Hey! That was easy! When can I make money reporting semi-obvious things?

    Post subject: Mortensen on ESPN about Martz

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I just caught Chris Mortenssen on ESPN Sunday Morning Countdown state that Martz showed up at "the office" and yelled at two coaches who had been disloyal to him. He also came back later in the week and told the whole staff to take the week off. He plans to show up on Monday now that he is cleared to work.

    This is straight out of Mort's mouth, give er take a word

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I wonder What the real truth is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Rams | Martz out as head coach

    As much as I've been critical of Mike Martz, I admit that even I'm somewhat torn on whether or not he should be fired. I think a lot of things would have to change just to keep him and for the Rams to be successful but whether self inflicted or the hand of fate, Martz has had a lot of adversity to deal with, especially this year.

    The decision to bring in a yes-man in Marmie was a critical error in my opinion but I think that decision was made, at least in some part, because of the internal conflict and lack of support that Martz must have felt.

    Someone on a different board said that they are predicting that Martz will go to Oakland because of Al Davis' love of offense. I don't know that there's much of a connection there as far as relationship's go, but it's a scary proposition. Oakland has a much better o-line than the Rams have had the last few years and it would be a perfect environment for Martz. He's a bad boy as far as a lot of the league is concerned and there would be no question who's in charge (Al Davis) as well as the Raiders generally doing a decent job of drafting, etc. Add to that Randy Moss, Jerry Porter and Lamont Jordan and there's already a pretty good core of players to build upon. I don't know a lot about the Raiders overall, but I think that if Martz was in a situation where he was essentially in charge of the offense would be best for him.

    Angry Re: Rams | Martz out as head coach

    if your happy that martz is gone just tell me someone who can and will do a better job i predict the new rams head coach will be an emulation of the front office . Basically the front office wants a coach that doesnt want to win thats why they are getting rid of martz they want a guy thats going to let shaw and zygmutt keep the team below .500 since these are the same guys who said they dont want the rams to go to the super bowl cause its gonna cause the team to spend too much money say goodbye to martz and hello to a 4 - 12 team for the next decade

    Even if improbable, how I would enjoy to hear a "turn of events" type of news flash on Monday and see that the Rams board of directors decided to KEEP Coach Martz and opted instead to fire John Shaw!

    Happy New Year, St. Louis Rams.

    As far as him yelling at the assistant coaches..

    He yelled at Marmie, "YOU B&STARD, YOU COULDN'T STOP
    A GOOD HUMOR MAN!"
