    Re: Trying Not to Get Too Pumped Up

    I know--myself included--that many of us wanted Khan as our new owner; however, I think having Stan is much better. Why? He, like the next coach I hope, is experienced. Stan knows how to build a consistently good team. As far most resources are concerned, they seem to believe Fisher will be the guy in St. Louis.

    My point is this: If Stan wants Fisher in St. Louis, I have a feeling he's going to get what he wants.



    Always and Forever a fan of the St. Louis Rams

    I can't believe money would be an issue in getting Fisher, it would have to be Fisher wanting to go somewhere else. I gotta' say, though, the Rams job is a VERY ATTRACTIVE job. To wit:

    1) Probable franchise QB in place; not a complete rebuilding job.
    2) Committed owner with deep pockets
    3) Huge Cap room
    4) #2 draft pick allows for many possibilities
    5) Low expectations from everyone other than us diehards
    6) A city and fans DYING to support a winner

    Can't wait to see how this shakes out!

    After what we as Ram fans have endured how could this resume not look good?

    If the Rams miss it better not be about money...

    It may not happen.... the Bears could firer Lovie. The Colts job could open up. That's it the only two jobs I see that could be on his radar.

    The Rams job has to look good. Bradford, Owner with deep pockets. A say in the hiring of the GM. Cap space to rebuild. High draft picks. Some young talent with the recent high draft picks. Weak division. Ties to the organization from the past. A clean slate really.

    I want the hirer to be done by this weekend, lets start putting this thing back together.

    The only thing I have a problem with is "weak division". The only thing weak about this division is us.

    But yes to the larger point, Fisher's experience will be a God send to this franchise. Every HC for the past 12 years has had to go through on the job training. It's time for some real experience in that position. Thank God for Stan.
    *Ahem* * Not that I like to toot my own horn (well, ok, I LOVE tooting my own horn) but I did see where this was going after the Baltimore loss in week 3.

    That game was followed up with a complete meltdown at home against Washington a week later and, for all intents and purposes, the season was in the crapper. I mean losing to Rex Grossman at home?!?

    I knew this didn't bode well for the rest of the year so I started a thread for possible HC candidates much earlier than I ever wanted to and much to my chagrin at that.

    At any rate here we are and I like all Rams fans can only hope that Kronks makes the winning call this time....

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Most teams in the west are rebuilding still... whiners look to have turned the corner still not sold on Smith yet... Gore is getting older as well...

    Comparing the NFC west to lets say... AFC East look who you have to beat to win the division..

    AFC East
    Patriots
    Jets
    Dolphins
    Bills

    I would think getting the Rams in position to win the west is easier the knocking off the Patriots and the Jets.

    How about the Bears in the NFC North...

    Packers
    Lions
    Bears
    Vikings

    If the Bears job opened its still is a harder division to win in...

    Considering last year the Rams where one game from winning the West i would think it's weaker then the Fins job.

    Maybe we just have a different perception of what "weak," actually is. Because when you take the records of the top 3 teams in each division throughout the NFL, the NFC West, with a combined record of 28-20 ranks fourth out of eight divisions. That doesn't seem weak to me, but everybody has their own opinion.

    Only the AFC and NFC North divisions top 30 victories (each having 33), and the NFC South with 29 wins, top the NFC West.

    The AFC East are 27-21, which would place them one game behind the NFC West.

    So not only does the NFC West minus the Rams of course, have a better record than the AFC East, but the Jets are completely overrated and are certainly no better than Seattle or the Cardinals in my opinion.

    edit: Can't believe I used the word 'swagger'...
    Billick isnt the type of coach Kroenke is looking for. Stan has a very strong stance on egomaniacs, so its never going to happen. The last thing Stan wants is a selfish person running his show.?
