    Rams' power structure (according to Scouts, Inc.)

    Charley Armey: General manager
    Jay Zygmunt: President/football operations
    Lawrence McCutcheon: Director of player personnel
    Scott Linehan: Head coach

    Much has changed in St. Louis since the end of the regular season, and more change could be in store after the 2006 draft, when GM Charley Armey is expected to retire. Jay Zygmunt is an excellent salary cap guy who makes the final decisions in St. Louis. He has a good feel for the entire league and sees the big picture. Much like Zygmunt, Armey also is a big-picture guy who handled more day-to-day operations and organization than Zygmunt.

    The biggest issue with Armey and Zygmunt is that they are not real grinders in terms of pounding the tape. With Armey likely to leave, the Rams may promote director of player personnel Lawrence McCutcheon, who is worthy of the promotion. He is a road scout and more of a football guy than Zygmunt or Armey. Unlike former head coach Mike Martz, who had a big ego and a lot of say in final decisions, Zygmunt and Armey would be well served to give McCutcheon the leeway to run this draft the way he sees fit. Of all the people in the Rams' organization, he is the man most fit to make the final calls on player selection. Head coach Scott Linehan and the rest of the new coaching staff are unlikely to contribute a great deal this year.

    I think thats a good idea. Having that McCutcheon running the table while Armey and Zygmount monitor him to make sure he will be a good fit.

    I dont know how you can say that the head coach wont contribute much in the draft. That makes very little sense to me. Not having the final say is one thing, not contributing much is just nuts.

    Forgive me for my ignorance, but could someone translate for me the term "pounding the tape"?

    I'm not positive maybe it's watching tapes on players?

    That seems to be the correct, translation, RF81. Studying at length and with full concentration, as in "hitting the books".

    Good to see you again, Chiledog!

    BTW, the Head Coach of ANY team MUST be a focal point, at least one of two, in determining who is drafted and why.

    Now who would have thought that Lawrence of Los Angeles would have risen to such heights! Well done.
