    SI: Haslett's bid for Rams job "all but over"

    Jim Haslett's bid to hang onto the Rams fulltime head coaching job is all but over. After that hopeful 2-0 start under Haslett, with wins over the Redskins and Cowboys, St. Louis is 0-3 and again looking like the overmatched team it was under Scott Linehan. It obviously messed with Haslett's mojo when the NFL ruled that he couldn't have a clause in his contract in which six wins would earn him an elevation to the fulltime job.

    Jim Fassel continues to be a name to track regarding the Rams job in 2009.

    The question is does Fassel want us? Who in their rite mind would take over this team? Maybe they should all go to the land of misfit toys and learn how to become dentist.

    He knows how to rebuild we desperately need to that so why not. I think we need to run the 3-4 to take advantage of first round picks abilities (Carriker and Long). I want a 3-4 coach who been around so he can fix up a great supporting coaching staff. Dick Labeau of the steelers comes to mind, but I don't know if he wants to leave Pittsburgh let alone be a head coach.

    Any one of Schottenheimer (my choice), Cowher or Fassel would be fine with me. He hasn't coached since '03 with NYG and therefore I believe he would definitely take the job if he was offered it. He didn't do well as an OC in Baltimore but then again, the offense was atrocious throughout the Billick era. Can anyone think of any other veteran coaches that would suit the Rams? I mentioned Billick, but no chance in hell do I want him.

    Does it really have to be a veteran coach? Guys like Jim Zorn, Jim Harbaugh, Mike Smith, and Tony Sparano are proving it doesn't necessarily have to. 3 of those guys weren't even O/D coordinators. What about a guy like Steve Spagnuolo or Josh McDaniels? Talented youth doesn't always have to come in the form of players.

    Guys, I'm afraid it's no longer a question of "Who do we want?" but "Who wants us?". No one in their right mind with any other options is going to want this job - how would you like to be the new head coach and work under Shaw/Zygmunt with our current owner?

    Excellent! Agreed.


    Didn't see it but Haslett's press conference after yesterday's game must have been tough!

    One thing to consider is that getting a good co-ordinator and giving him the head spot does not insure that unit will perform they way it would it the guy was co-ordinator. Brian Billick was an offensive "mastermind" and could barely score enough points to win the super bowl with defense that was historically dominant. Marv Lewis took over the Bengals and I'm not sure they've gotten a three and out during his tenure.

    I think the more important things about a head coach are attitude, philosophy (you want a 3-4 guy) and intelligence. You want a guy that is going to leave no stone unturned. Not every top co-ordinator has these qualities.
