    It is an internet forum. Don't take it too hard. This is probably the most level headed forum on the planet also. People are going to throw stuff like this out there when they get their nuts kicked off every week, year after year. Some of us take this crap too seriously, myself included. Personally, the "mood" of a message board doesn't upset me so much. What I hated at the PD was the thousands of duplicate.... Whiny ass, unmoderated threads. I wanted reasonable discussion with real fans, and the Dude abided. :cool:

    Oh, and I am fully onboard with a Lovie-Martz reunion. Keep Fish as HC tho.

    That's all very comprehensive, but you're still out of your mind. :lol:

    Man, I'd still really like to keep Sam. I wonder if Martz would come back as a QB coach, and get Sam back to where he needs to be.

    That I am. But Fisher has really lost me the last couple weeks and I just don't believe we can "fix" Sam.

    Plus, I love me some Blake Bortles. He's going to be facing my Gamecocks today. :cheese:

    If I have to say "Blake Bortles" more than once, I might go root for another team. :lol:

    You won't be saying it...you'll be cheering it! The guy is seriously fun to watch and I am a real big believer in him. I've been told by some "experts" that I am overrating him by having him as a 1st rounder but I think in time, he'll prove me right.

    And on the bright side, you'll also get to see his girlfriend at games:

    Unless she goes to the games in the same attire ... meh.

    I'm with you on one thing, however. Bring in competition for Sam. He hasn't been challenged by anyone since he got here, so maybe he'll thrive on that. He's a pretty fierce competitor in a number of sports, and right now he has absolutely nobody breathing down his neck. Clemens? Yeah. Not so scary.

    You kidding me? Clemens would scare me. Any time he was throwing, I'd never be able to avoid being afraid an errant pass will hit me in the head.

    That would either make me a very attractive woman or a former defensive tackle named Tony. I think I am safe...crossing my fingers though. :ww:

    First time responding to this (work has been crazy of late) and although I know the Rams won't fire Fisher I will play along.


    1. Rod Marinelli will not be brought in because he's with the Cowboys right now and if the Rams must ask for permission the Cowboys would deny permission. Keep in mind jrry that even in a case of a promotion teams still have to get permission and there is no way Jerry Jones allows this.

    2. Offensive Cooridnator in the years with the Bears Lovie hired many including the likes of Mike Martz & Mike Tice and it did not go well at all. Now would he get it right this time? Not sure with Snead assisting, maybe, but people in Chicago would say differently.

    3. QB to bring in I agree I like Aaron Murray better than some, but Bradford needs to be challenged and drafting some of the guys you posted about would be a good move regardless of who's in charge.

    4. I do like Lovie Smith and he would be a natural fit in St. Louis you might see him go with Ron Rivera as DC or Leslie Frazier if those Head Coaches don't turn their season around, but again I don't see Kroenke pulling the plug on Fisher unless Fisher takes a college job or resigns and the latter is not happening.

    Marinhelli and Lovie are attached at the hip. IMO, he'd be end up as our DC.

    Hasn't been challenged? Think about that for just a second.

    I know it isn't what you mean, but having competition for the job isn't the solution. It isn't Bradford who isn't motivated or working hard enough. Eventually, he'll be ruined and the Rams will have to move on but I really don't see the problem being motivational.

    As far as Jrry32's plan, I think it's fun but flawed. Minnesota's starting Matt Cassel this week and I don't think he'll be giving up the job. That team is so good that a caretaker QB is all they need, which is what Cassel is and what Ponder isn't even as good as.

    Cassel is awful. That's why they'd make the deal. Bradford can manage the game and is MUCH more talented and dynamic than Cassel and Ponder.

    I'm not against Lovie but I'd still rather have Martz. The offense is tailored to what he does well and I'd rather have Martz as HC so the offense would be done his way. The bad part is that I doubt Lovie wants to be just a DC at this stage. He had some success as a HC but if he was brought in for that position, I'd have to guess that putting Martz at OC wouldn't work any better than it did when they reunited with the Bears. When Martz was HC and Lovie was DC it worked. The other way around, it didn't.

    So, I want to see a HC that can make the pieces in place on offense work. The defense too obviously.

    Hue Jackson for OC, though? If for no other reason, which I think there are many, he was one of Fisher's final two choices. I don't trust Fisher with any offensive decisions at this point so Jackson's not an option in this fantasy. What's your second choice? I mentioned Mularkey in another thread as a possible replacement in the real world trying to find a compromise for Fisher's desire to run and still building around a QB.

    I'm not in love with the guy or anything but he's proved he can play at a high level. He's been Alex Smith'd almost as much as Bradford though so I don't know that I'd discount him for what happened in KC. I don't expect ANY QB to be productive under Romeo Crennel. Cassel will be fine with Minnesota and at least good enough to keep them from spending heavy resources in a trade.

    No to Mularkey. Hell to the no.

    As for Martz, I don't share your enthusiasm for him as a HC. I remember his terrible game/challenge management skills.

    Martz and Lovie didn't work in Chicago because the Bears OL was a dumpster fire and they had no WRs.

    But actually...it did work pretty well, the Bears were 11-5 in 2010 making it to the NFC Champ game and they were 7-3 in 2011 before Cutler got hurt and were averaging 27 PPG in 2011 with Cutler.

    So I'm not opposed to Martz but I'd rather have Hue Jackson at this point and let Martz enjoy retirement.
