Thread: Devaney discusses the Combine.
Re: Devaney discusses the Combine.-Bernie asks how Devaney and Kevin Demoff will work together. Devaney says itís a great addition, and he canít say on the cusp of free agency what a difference the agent community feels about dealing with the Rams and Kevin. Kevin is handling contract negotiations, keeps track of the cap, said heís in with personnel meetings so they can tell him how to prioritize players (who are primary, secondary, etc), and heíll try to get them signed. Spags and Devaney kind of work together on personnel with suggestions from coaches but at end of the day, Kevin will work business side and Devaney handles football operations part. It wonít be a situation where Devaney wants someone and Demoff vetoes it. If Devaney says it, itís not just him but a consensus with coaches and pro scouts about who is the best guy. Demoff is a consummate team guy; if thatís the guy they want, heíll go for it. Great, great set-up, not even close to the old ďwarring factionsĒ attitude."Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat; long is the road thereto and rough and steep at first; but when the heights are reached, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning." --- Hesiod

Re: Devaney discusses the Combine.
We will indeed see, Hub, over the next couple of years, whether that publicly delineated structure actually functions as described.I'm not looking for conspiracies but we've had many years of mismanagement of this team & I think there are so many legit options for the Rams that we won't have any real sticking points for a while.
I like that Bernie-who never felt a breeze of controversy that he didn't turn into a hurricane-is saying that Demoff is being given the thumbs up as a good choice by independent sources so I'm optimistic.
BUT there is no way without any actual deals having been done to say that Demoff and Chip, the man to whose purse he holds the strings, will actually SEAL a deal in a controversial move and who else might have influence on that behind closed doors. It's one thing to commit to "trying" & another to get it done.
