    You make the call, boss!

    Here's the situation. You go to a party with tons of people you don't know. You look across the sea of nameless faces and you see one that you recognize. What, is that who I think it is? It is. That is Rams president John Shaw. You introduce yourself and the two of you hit it off. Shaw finds you intriguing and after some time of conversation and a dozen whiskey sours, Shaw thinks you hung the moon. In a drunken confession, he tells you that he is tired of running the Rams and wants you to take his place. Without hesitation, you agree! Of course, a day later he sobers up, realizes what he's done, and removes you from office. But for 24 hours, you control the Rams! Georgia is at a tarot convention in New Orleans and can't be reached. Kroenke is too busy with the Nuggets to criticize you. Nobody within the organization can tell you no.

    The sky's the limit. The question is: what do you do with those 24 hours?

    Re: You make the call, boss!

    I would do more than have lunch with the cheerleading squad...if you know what I', saying. But, I would trade all teh Wr's you have to the Hawks for Terreal Bierria, because I know you need secondary help, and the trade would help both of us. I jest of course.

    Seriously, I don't know what i would do...maybe just stand there and hope that i didn't mess things up too much, cause that would be the last thing I wanted to happen. I would hate for something to be blamed on me, and then have my name bandied about the national media, and be hated by fellow fans, and have everybody pissed at me. I think that I would just sit there and enjoy the view from the top.

    To be fair, not all evil robots are killers.

    I'd make sure I got paid his salary of 24 hrs and what 24 hrs of the bennies he collects.Then I'd force him to give me a job at 200,000 $ a year or I'd sue.

    I think JK has it pretty much summed up. But I'd defintely add in bringing back Pom Pom Mom. I used to see her at the colliseum. Classic!

    too funny.

    I would look for Martz' diary. I want to know what he really thinks about Brenda Warner and Merrill Hodge. There has got to be some juicy info in there.

    Re: You make the call, boss!

    I thought about this a lot...probably too much.
    First, I would negotiate with Faulk to be an offensive coordinator upon his retirement. He's too darn smart to let go.
    Second, I would try to negotiate with Bruce to take over Ellard's spot when he retires.
    Third, I'd try to coax Jack Youngblood to take over for Marmie.
    Other than that....I don't know.

    I'd find a way to dump Lewis perhaps via trade, and find a top quality, proven ROT, even if it cost draft picks from next year.

    Re: You make the call, boss!

    I suppose there has to be some realism if making deals with other teams/players so let's see here.

    1.) Sign Lance Schulters. No question about it.
    2.) Schedule a visit for Ty Law.
    3.) Call Aeneas Williams, offer him a job as an Asst. Coach in the secondary.
    4.) Send a fruit basket to Orlando Pace.
    5.) Get a massage.
    6.) Call Adam Archuleta and invite he and his girlfriend to dinner. Cancel with Archuleta. Enjoy a nice evening with the lady.
    7.) Have a pick-up game on the EJ Dome turf with some buddies.

    A doughnut and cheeseburger basket may be more appreciated.

    I would break you. That is unless you have a spare room for another Ram fan when the season starts.
