    Wow this week is taking some interesting turns. I definitely underestimated Elway's interest in Joseph. Going with McCoy vice Downing smacks of Elway-induced decision too. And a good one. But McCoy isn't a WCO guy, not that it matters or anything nowadays, particularly with the offensive movement Denver has coming under a young QB, but it does surprise me. Anyway, I don't think Joseph will work out there, but then again I had thought the Kubiak hire was dumb too at the time so wtf do I know, not much apparently.

    Ball's in the Rams' court, no doubt about it. They have their choice pretty much. But that said I would move on McVay and Phillips immediately. Here's hoping Demoff doesn't stretch this out too much, as time does matter with these assistant coaches.

    Damn, my dream scenario on the offensive side of the ball was McDaniels as HC with McCoy as OC...I realllly don't want Lynn, he has one partial season as a play caller and he didn't exactly light the world on fire.

    If the Rams hire Lynn they're morons. He coordinated that partial season running someone else's offense, too, which was installed by Roman that offseason. Dude needs more seasoning, just like Vrabel.

    Yeah. I like the thought of the Shanahans ... but McVay with Phillips as DC is just too appealing. If they think McVay can actually land Phillips, they need to start writing up a contract ASAP.

    I have a 21 year bottle of scotch that will be opened this weekend if they hire McVay. But I'm trying to keep my optimism in check here, since it's the Rams we're talking about. Waiting for the other shoe to drop lol.

    I keep checking twitter and here to see if anything has happened. I have this "crap is about to go down" feeling. I hope they don't take too long. New HC has to put together a new offensive and defensive staff

    This is going down to the wire and shaping up to be a two horse race IMO...

    No decision unless they feel confident about McVay and he gets an offer from the 9ers.

    Otherwise, the Rams still have to interview Shanny and Vrabel and then want to do a few other second interviews.

    I couldn't be MORE in the corner for McVay especially since he seems to have someone as esteemed as Wade Philips in his corner. That's just...phenomenal.

    Maybe Shanahan isn't as hot a candidate as the fans believe. He may not get a HC gig this year. Something I tought was a sure thing last week.

    Demoff said all the top guys go around the 14th 15th. Timeline is moving faster than they anticipated, but the good thing is their top guys are still on the board. If they could have interviewed Shanny this weekend this whole thing would be over. However, I still think this will this will get done sooner rather than later Rams have interviewed more people than anyone else and with official hires being made the rams have to pick their guy so he has the best shot of putting the best staff together.

    Personally, I trust Sean McVay and Kyle Shanahan in that department. I think they know who they can rely on. I think they know their own limitations.
