    I'd like a guy like Kirk Ferentz from Iowa, or Les Miles from LSU, but those guys are going to be hard to get.

He is considered a no nonsense guy, yet was liked by his players. Of the guys with head coaching experience who would consider coming here, I believe he is the best choice.

    I've always liked Marty Schottenheimer, and in fact suggested him when Linehan was fired. But he is 70 years old, and I don't know that in this stage of the game where long-term stability is needed, Marty is the right fit.
    This is why I'm confused as to why Marty's name is brought up as often as it is in threads too.

    Why don't we just get good players to start out with?

    That's one of the areas our new regime will have to improve on once they get here. However, the gift basket is already full.

    at 10-33, hard to say we would find anyone worse. I mean statistically speaking, Spags is worst coach in Ram history. I wouldl ike to see a proven NFL HC that is hard nosed and can lead overpaid men to win. Don't much care who it is a slong as we finally stop being the doormat of the league

    I thought about a response like this as I was typing, but you know it would happen after the first 1 and done, even if it was next year (2012).

    Re: Why Jeff Fisher?

    I am thinking Gregg Williams could be a good candidate as a head coach. He has been a head coach before, knows the game and could take this Defense to another level. Also what about maybe Wilbert Montegomery or Henry Ellard coming in??/

    I disagree. Only 3 times in 16 years did Fisher's teams finish below 7-9, which means that almost every year they were at least in the hunt for a wild card spot relatively late in the season. He wasn't one of the best coaches of all-time or anything, but he was certainly above average and often won with teams that weren't loaded up with superstar talent.

    I too felt that Schottenheimer should have been the pick over Spagnunono when the job was available. He at least puts out very competative teams year in and year out that offer the possibility of championships; rather than the year culminating in our version of the Superbowl-- a top 3 pick year in and year out.

    Can anyone enlighten me as to why he's so good? Not trying to start an argument - I really just don't know enough about the guy. I'll admit he's better than what we have atm though...
    8-8 sounds good to me. Just being in the playoff hunt would be a huge improvement around here.
