  • How many wins to keep Spags?

    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.

    Whether we like it or not if our Rams win 2 or more games plus play competitive and the losses are close. Spags will be back for his 3rd year.
    Look Linehan went (8-8) then (3-13) and wasn't canned until what game 4 of his 3rd year.

    I really don't think it's going to be a question whether Spags is back for year 3 but you asked. Seriously I have confidence and trust in Spags. He will have us playing much better in year 2. Which will translate into wins!!!!

    GO RAMS!!!!!!

      I also think he will and should be back for a third year, to answer you question about how many wins, I don't know that we can honestly say at this point what should be expected of him. It depends for me how much this team improves itself in the offseason through the draft and free agency, and also the general health of the team throughout the season. Lets face it, if the FO doesn't get him the players he needs then it's sort of like trying to water ski in a mud puddle.

        Unless he doesnt win a game next year, he will be back for his 3rd year atleast. But i would like to see 5 or 6 wins next season.

            In no way shape or form should anyone tolerate this team winning less than 6 games next year (that we'd accept a 6-10 record shows you just how low the bar has been set). A collective effort from the GM to the coach to the players must be made to find ways to win without using injuries, inexperience and other factors as reasons why they can't get it done. I think Spags will be back for year three no matter what, barring an unforseen set of circumstances. I still have complete confidence in Spags, but that confidence will waiver tremendously if major improvement isn't shown next year. A "3", "2" and "1" win season in succession will do that to you.

              How long is Spags contract? Whatever it is, im pretty certain he'll be here that long no matter how many wins / losses we have. Devaney and him have a plan, it takes time to execute that plan, i dont care about how many we win next year, i want to see us getting better and progessing

                I fully expect him to be here until at least the end of his 3rd year. These guys are working on implimenting a whole new look and feel for the Rams, that just won't happen of the course of one year and Chip/Lucia know that.

                With or without 'success' next season (I do hope to see more than 4 wins) Spags will be back.

                  For me it's difficult to put a hard number on it because as most have said, it's a rebuilding team, he inherited a mess and most decent teams give a guy more than one year to build.

                  That being so stated, I think it would be a percentage based on these teams: San Francisco, Seattle, Kansas City, Detroit and Oakland. The more of these he loses to, the higher the odds are of him getting cut early.

                  2010 Rams: 53 playing like 11!

                    Hopefully at least four. I like Spags a lot, I just think we need to give him some talent to work with.

                      I want to see 8 minimum lol..but with this team I doubt it..

                      So I am sure the ownership is thinking maybe around 3-6?

                        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?

                        Is spags trying to win games?
                        by BarronWade
                        I mean really i stopped watching the game after the crabtree TD cuz i just cant stand being disappoint every single sunday.

                        All this is in the 1st half:

                        We kept trying to run up the middle vs. the best run D

                        We throw a silly screen on 3rd and 13

                        We run on 2nd and 25, and 3rd and 23 wen we are still in the game

                        Spags keeps sending King out there even thou he keeps failing miserably

                        I mean wat is spags trying to do with this offense? He defiantly has say in the offense because look at what Josh McD did with matt cassel the back up qb......Spags is not Kronke's guy

                        If we fire spags and let McD become interim do we have anything to lose except games that spags will lose anyway?

                        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 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.

                        Coaches On The Hot Seat
                        by macrammer
               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?
