  • Coaches On The Hot Seat

    NFL.com has a bit posted today regarding coaches that are "on the hot seat"
    Mentioned about 10 teams with nary a mention of the 1-14 Rams. Is this due to the fact that Spags has a high degree of respect around the league and it does appear a woeful talent challenged team has not given up on him. Or is it nobody really expected the Rams to do anything this year anyway so too early to really put Spags on hot seat. Or, a combination of both. Thoughts?

    I'd say that's a pretty fair assesment. I don't think anyone would have thought this team would have even been .500 this year with the injuries and the problems Spags inherited from the past regime. I will say that I think deserved or not that if this team doesn't win atleast 5 games next year that the seat may begin to get warm for him though.

      It's his first year why would he be on the hotseat already? He inherited a pile of junk. One year is not enough but of course there should be improvement next year.

        I would agree on both counts. Spags essentially gets a free pass this year based on what he inherited, low expectations and him successfully keeping guys together during the most difficult of times. Less than 5 wins next year changes things considerably- no way can we accept yet another year of the most brutal football imaginable.

          Mangini with the Browns, Morris with the Buc's and Mora with the Seahawks were all mentioned in the hot seat and all are 1st year coaches for their respective teams.

            Mangini's a bad coach, Raheem Morris was a guy who was a defensive assistant this time last year who was then promoted in house twice in one offseason-his coaching performance indicates that he was definitively not ready for this job, and the Seahawks were supposed to contend for a division title.

              Mangini and Mora were also not rookie head coaches. Mora was even with the team last year. I think all three of those are more on the hot seat because they think the team wants to make a radical change, more than the performace of the coach. I the Rams were sold, I wouldn't be overly shocked if Spags was released. But then again I don't see either happening soon.

                Ehhhhhh, I have a lot of respect for Spags simply because he beated those Cheatriots with a well disciplined Giants defense but to be more realistic, I expect him to give us at least 4 wins next season. I have a lot of faith in the guy and I don't think going through a coaching carousel will solve our problems. IMO, I think we should best stick with him for two more years and reserve our judgement then.

                  Steve Spagnuolo will go down as coach of one of the worst teams in NFL history. Sure, he's a rookie HC, but its time after one dismal season, that he be held accountable. The Dallas Cowboys' former head coach Jimmy Johnson also began his NFL career 1-15. Johnson had the vision to make drastic changes and quickly returning the Cowboys to contenders again. Spagnuolo will have to reavaluate his position, being a first year HC is no excuse, going 1-15 is an embarrassment. Yes, SPAGS is on the HOT SEAT! Starting today he'll need to focus on the things that will turn this team around, and quickly. The Rams are a reflection of their record, it seems that Spags couldn't stress the importance of taking care of the football, coming from a defensive background more of a developement should have progressed for the Rams, in this area, as the 2009 went along. Just like Jimmy Johnson, Spags will need to get the guys in here who will get the job done...Or else, the RAMS will have to get the right Head Coach in here!

                    Lol..... Why should spags be on the hot seat? This team is horrible, even worst than Jummy Johnson's Cowboys.... And the amount of injuries? You have got to be kidding me... There is so much you can do with a team maybe 2 years isn't enough, maybe they'll do better next year? But who knows, maybe the same thing will happen next year with all the injuries?

                      I don't think Spags is on the hot seat in the sense he could get fired this season but he is going to be starting next season because there has to be improvement,no question about it,another 1 or 2 win season is not acceptable and as far as the team being terrible he knew that when he took the job and if the same thing happens again next season as you mentioned there will be people jumping off the top of the Arch.

                        If some people on this board have their way, he'll be on the hot seat for bringing in Vick. It's all a big conspiracy. Prove you are incompetent by hiring Vick, and then get fired. :|

                          Let us not forget that several of the losses this season were by one score, and came down to the final seconds. I would say that this is already an improvement from last season. If the Rams can do a better job of executing the big plays that they didn't this year, they might just bat .500. That would be a big enough swing to keep him around.

                            not so sure I agree you MOM, I think we will see improvement next season but I really don't see much thats different from last season.

                              Can't be on the hot seat. He's got a big bag of crap to work with. Can't blame him. None of the guys on this team would be on other teams. They'd all be practice squad players.

                                Coach Of The Year Why Not Spags ?
                                by jkramsfan
                                If the Rams finish 8-8 and win the west,then who is more deserving than Spags, I heard on a radio show today that Morris from Tampa was the frontrunner,they have not beat a team with a winning record and still have 7 wins to show for it which tells me they are playing a crappy schedule.to go from 1-15 to 8-8 or better with a rookie QB starting from game 1 I think our guy should get the award,now lets hope we can get to 8-8.

                                SPAGS may be in over his head
                                by dgr828
                                There are millions of excuses for the Rams woes, but the head coach must be held accountable. Even Jim Zorn has the Redskins playing inspired ball!
                                Spagnuolo has done nothing to show that this team is responding to him. More often than not his Rams tend to quit on him before the end of ballgames.

                                Has Spags lost this team already?

                                Could the Rams have made a better choice for HC?

                                Spags must be thinking "What have I gotten myself into!"

                                Should Spags be placed offically on the HOTSEAT?

                                It might be TIME!

                                In another thread titled "REALISTICALLY" 98 people have cast their votes on how many wins they feel our team will win in 2009.

                                82 of the 98 votes are for the 6-9 win range which is approx. 83% of the votes.

                                What will you think of Spags if we win less then 6 games?

                                What will you think of Spags if we win 6 games?

                                How about 7 wins? 8? 9?

                                Spags Job...The hot topic.
                                by FestusRam
                                Well...everyone else has made their opinion of Spags and his job very clear.

                                I guess ill join the party.

                                It seems as if the consensus of Clanram is yelling OFF WITH HIS HEAD.

                                From what i've seen during the Spags era, I don't think this is the right move, yet. It would be smart for Kroenke to give Spags and Co at least one more year to turn things around. Here's why.

                                1. Injuries- Ok..ok..I realize its part of the game. Seriously though, is there a team out there that has had more crucial injuries than us. We lost our top 3 corner backs in the first weeks of play. This would be devastating to any team in the NFL. Not to mention, our young developing quarterback lost his safety valve early on. I miss Amendola at this point much more than I thought I might. The fact is, if he's healthy, Bradford hits Danny on a short route if necessary. IMO, this would've reduced our sack total by quite a bit. It seems as is Bradford sometimes refuses to just throw the ball away, which makes a shifty Amendola that much more important. He also could've gotten the ball out so much quicker. While Salas looks to be promising, he's just not quick enough to get open so soon like Amendola. By the way, what happened to that promising young Salas. :| Theres alot more injuries here and there also(Sam's ankle), that just keep holding this team back. I know there's no excuses to why we didn't score yesterday when we moved the ball so well. However, I would bet a lot of money we would've with Lloyd, Amendola, Dx, and Salas. Not to mention Clayton.

                                2. Rebuilding- Correct me if im wrong, but when he inherited this team wasn't it filled with players that belong in the CFL. Keenan Burton, Alex Barron, and Justin"Cant wait til we cut his a$$"King just to name a few. It takes time to rebuild a team so dismantled. They've had only a few drafts and FA's to do so. They have done a good job in my opinion, considering all the dead money they inherited too. Also, keep in mind how hard it is to sign the top free agents when your rebuilding a team that has done nothing but lose most of the last decade.

                                3. Short Offseason- Yes, all the teams had the same amount of time to get acclimated to the season. We did change quite a bit from last season though. We implemented a new offensive scheme, the second one in two years for a sophomore quarterback. We also added quite a bit of new players. These guys seems like they're finally learning to play as a team though.

                                4. Continuity- This team desperately needs to stay the course and just keep building around young Sam. If Kroenke decides to fire Spags, and hire yet another HC, so be it. I would understand, but i would disagree. Bradfords young and im nervous of a new HC bringing yet another OC. He has shown this year that it will take him time to acclimate to complex offensive systems.

                                5. Poor Fundamentals- Yea the coach takes some responsibility...

                                A simple question for what I hope is a simple answer. Is it 3 wins? Is it 5 wins? Or is it 8 wins? For me its 8, just for the fact that we are a NFL team
                                that should be competitive no matter what.
