    I want to thank DeSpags for no longer being here.

    I think they did a good job in getting defensive talent, minus cutting all the late picks. The offensive talent is really poor. Even when we went 7-9 the offense was horrendous. From all of the Despags drafts we got Bradford and maybe Saffold as far as solid talent on the offense. That's not hard to do considering Sam was #1 and Saffold was #33.

    This team is in better shape now personnel wise than it was when Linehan left- there is absolutely no question in my mind about that. This is not to say we don't have a number of holes to fill or endorse the overall job done by Billy D or Spags. A number of draft picks have not panned out and Spags, in my opinion did an absolutely horrendous job of getting the most out of the people he had. This was a 5 or 6 win team this year even with the injuries. But let's not digress. The cupboard is not bare. We have a franchise QB if he's protected. We have an excellent running back. Lloyd is a very good receiver and must be kept. Amendola, Laurinaitis, Bartell, Long, Jones and numerous others are keepers.

    While a new coach will want to put his stamp on things and bring in "his guys", don't make the mistake of thinking Fisher is just going to arbitrarily clean house. That has already been done with the coaching staff. The players are a different matter entirely. Fisher will undoubtedly watch countless hours of film on each player and if a guy can play, he'll be kept around and if not, he'll be gone. Simple as that. Good players are a premium in this league, and teams aren't going to get rid of guys who can be contributors.

    I would say the starting 22 is a 50/50 situation. I always say that you can tell a teams depth by how good their special teams are. Well, the Rams special teams has sucked for years.

    Let's not fool ourselves. There's a reason why Kroenke cleaned house. It's not because the Rams were a piece or two away from being a contender. This is going to be a complete make over, top to bottom.
