    Don't want him either because I don't trust the Belichick tree but "spoiled little child," how did you get that view of him?

    Agree. That's why I'm more concerned about it.
    I wonder how Vermeil would have done if he never hired Martz.
    Because he was sucking the life out of that team before him.

    I hope this isn't the complete List! And I hope we have a nice Staff of interviewers to question the potential New HC, and GM IF we are going to go after a New GM!!

    Sorry, Wade has had three chances to be a Head Coach in Denver, Buffalo & Dallas plus Wade is 69 years old, IMO, the Rams can do better than Wade.

    Well, can't communicate that the Rams are not interviewing many, hopefully, they hire the right guy. Austin seems well respected throughout the league, however, I have never considered the defenses he's coordinated to be elite, just solid at best.

    He has said he's a better coordinator than a hc. I don't think he wants to be a hc again.

    It's cool that they're doing their due diligence and all, but they also need to hurry up. The first head coach hired gets first crack at the coordinators, and there's not going to be a very deep pool to choose from.

    Went to the Chiefs with Al Saunders as his offensive coordinator and went 44-36 and 13-3 in 2003 and that offense was very special, however, the DC Greg Robinson just could not get the team even mediocre otherwise they would have been even more dangerous. So he had a winning record without Martz so IMO, I think he would have done fine, but together the both of them were special.

    I'm with you on that. Not a big fan of either of the Lions coordinators. I'm biased though since I live a stone skip away from Detroit.

    It's so hard being patient. I want to know who our coach and coordinators are RIGHT NOW! :)

    His time in Denver would lead one to view him that way.

    Sometimes people learn from their screwups and change for the better. Still would rather have someone else. Who? Mike Smith, 66-46 with four playoff trips in seven seasons with the Falcons, Tom Cable, Mike Shanahan, Tom Coughlin.

    Seems like the Rams are interviewing literally everyone, which IMO is good and bad. Leaving no stone unturned. However, is kroenke taking a week off from running the empire? Are only certain coaches being blessed with his presence? If so why would you go work for a guy who didn't think of you enough to attend the interview.

    I wouldn't be excited by any of the coaches on that list, but I'd be okay with all but Tom Cable. Cable currently oversees the third worst OL in the NFL (barely edged out by us and Minnesota). When he was head coach in Oakland, he punched one of his assistants in the face. And Hue Jackson was the reason for that team's success imo.

    I will take a shot:

    Head Coach...Kyle Shanahan
    Offensive Coordinator...Rick Dennison
    Defensive Coordinator...Raheem Morris
