    Rams need to create coaching bullpen

    I can see it now...

    The Rams are in an important game in 2008. Scott Linehan has them off to a good start, and they head into the locker room at the half with a 17-7 lead.

    Things start to go bad in the third quarter. The opposition has altered its game plan, and is back in the game. The Rams are now down 17-20.

    Suddenly a whistle blows.

    John Shaw walks over to Linehan, who reluctantly hands over his clipboard and headset. Shaw hands it to Bill Cowher, who has walked down from the press box. Cowher leads the Rams to a 24-20 victory, and adds to his league leading (no other competitors) save total!

    (Well, if we can't hire a new starting HC, maybe a reliever would work)

    Cowher said he would like to finish his second year as a CBS analyst next year before he considers coming back.

    Yes, they need to do something innovative.

    He should've been pulled after that coverage on the deep pass today. No one was even close.

    You can't have that on Defense - and Haslett is responsible too.

    Do you blame linehan for everything? Lemme guess? U think it was his falt the recievers dropped their passes and that resulted in 2 ints?

    The point is that its not linehans fault the players don't execute, it looked like a fine play call, but atogwe and bartell were mixed up and both took on the short route, which resulted in nobody in the middle of the field. That my friend is not linehans fault

    All I know is the trend continues after halftime of this team doing NOTHING. Is that all on the players? This is a very scary trend and we want to keep Linehan because he was dealt a bad hand, while i think the fans, and players are being dealt a bad hand.

    I wouldn't blame that one on Linehan so much. It looked like Atogwe and Bartell got their assignments confused. I don't know which one of them screwed up, but I'm certain the playcall was not "everybody stay short".

    I thought it was smart of them to get together in the end zone after the play to get there stories straight before they went to the sidelines and Haslett put his foot you know where.

    Not that it matters but Linehan was willing to go for it on a 4th and short from midfield and we made it. The drive stalls and then on 4th down he kicks a FG. Why? We are still down by two scores, time is running out and we are so far out of the playoffs it’s not funny. If he is going to be this conservative in our current position, he will be worse in the future.

    Makes you wonder why it doesn't happen to coaches like Belichick though, doesn't it?

    Apparently you're a better coach than Linehan, so why don't you apply for the job.

    That argument seems, at first glance, to have a certain logical appeal to it, but if you really think about it, its a silly argument. Allow me to illustrate:

    Me: "Man, that doctor did a terrible job on my friend's operation. He left three sponges in his abdomen!"
    You: "Apparently, you're a better doctor than him, so why don't you do the next surgery?"

    Me: "Man, that pilot was awful. He nearly ran off the runway!"
    You: "Apparently, you're a better pilot than him, so why don't you fly the plane?"

    Me: "Wow, that woman really shouldn't smoke while she's pregnant!"
    You: "Apparently, you're a better child-bearer than she is, so why don't you carry her child?

    4th and 9 as opposed to 4th and 1?

    Me: wow, that team might be really good if for not all the injuries.

    You: apparently they don't have a good coach, because everybody knows you can win with 3 former Cardinal back-ups on your offensive line.
