    I grade it as an INCOMPLETE, pending the hiring of a Defensive Coordinator.

    Can't do that Av. Head coach is a head coach, reguardless of who is the coordinator. You didn't get your grades in school based on how good looking your girlfriend was, did you?

    Okay, then I give it an A-. I like what I read about and hear from Linehan.

    I give him a B so far from what I've heard of him in his Press Conference.

    Re: You grade the decision

    I'd give it an A. I don't see anybody out there that I would rather have at this point. Looking at who is on the market and who has been hired, I think we got the cream of the crop.

    I gave it a B-, with a possible move up or down based on his entire staff being in place. Post this poll again in about 3 weeks.

    I agree with AV on this grade, part of what he sold Shaw was the staff that he would put together. Once I see us land Bates or an A list DC and a solid ST coach. And a pro scouting department, I will give the grade. If he can’t influence a top notch staff to join our cause, his grade will be very low.

    That was kind of my plan Maine. Thought it would be interesting to see what people thought in different stages leading up to the season.

    It's a little early to be grading Linehan, you think?

    Re: You grade the decision

    There were no "D"s available, and he isn't an F, so I gave him a C-.

    I just don't feel good about him. Too young, no proven record, reminds me of the stuff the FO did back in the old Ram's days. I got a sick feeling about this.

    Charon approaches,
    there is foreboding,
    my hopes sink,
    confidence eroding.

    The days look dark,
    my eyes are red,
    they will not be,
    better led.

    I gave it a B, because I would have liked a DC better.

    Yes, but my grade for Linehan will raise or lower depending on what his hiring means for other coaching positions. If it means we get a shabby OC and DC, then my grade of the decision will lower. I don't think it's unreasonable for people to hold out a vote until they know more about what the decision is going to bring.

    Re: You grade the decision

    I grade it a B for the same reason , but I do think we have a coach that may turn things around but will depend on who he brings in ... I will be behide him 100% "Welcome to the RAMS Coach"
