    Though the wait is frustrating, I've taken longer to pick the color of paint in a bathroom. I like the fact that the guy is taking his time to make the right decision. Now he also takes the risk that one of the other candidates blows Stan's socks off or they hire a GM and he has his own coach in mind.

    Very interesting if true. Do you suppose the two teams asked him to come back with what he wants in a contract?

    Its not a market of one, and never has been. When you put all your eggs into one basket, then you're screwed if it doesn't work out. We aren't just looking to replace the HC. We're trying to build an entire staff. Coaches, assistants, GM. We STILL don't have a president. Fisher doesn't fix everything, and waiting for him to pick, longer and longer makes it much harder on both the front office, and the players.

    If I were Kroenke, I'd make it clear to Mr. 6 winnings seasons in 15 years to make a decision by Friday or they're moving on.

    See, this is exactly why I don't like "name" guys.

    It is a market of ONE and remains so. Experience comes at a cost.

    It may well come down to that.

    It's a market of one for you maybe, because he's the guy you want, but there are other coaches out there. With his level of experience? No, but that doesn't make him into some football god who will come in and fix everything. He was a decent coach with the Titans, and that was about it. He wasn't leading them to undefeated seasons and deep into the playoffs every year.

    If I were Kroenke, I'd make sure to explicitly call him "Mr. 6 winnings seasons in 15 years," right after he gets out of Demoff's car.
    Your post was definitely more insightful the second time. :cheese:

    For experience he is the market of one. It's a great place to be. Oh and since I've watched him since the move....he is an EXCEPTIONAL HC.....one that the Rams desperately need.

    I was speaking about the decision part......not the descriptive part.

    Wait!!!.......Sorry I didn't read the topic. I just saw that it was 12 pages long so I thought it must be about Bulger.
    Nevermind.
