I am too lazy to see if this was already asked. McVay was 34 at the end of last season. Is he winningest NFL coach at the age of 34?
Vince Lombardi was the best ever. The End.
George Allen, Chuck Knox and John Robinson all deserve mention for best Rams’ Head Coaches.
Consider where the Rams were before each of those three men were hired; and what they accomplished in their first season ... all comparable to what McVay did in Year 1.
Not meant as a criticism of McVay’s accomplishments.
Meant ... little bit ... as a criticism of those who ignore, or fail to know and respect the past.
Exactly- F” The Hags & the division they came from. Donny Air was a better coach. He innovative a thing called the pass. A little different from the other team in the division well South of them with Bill Walsh & a thing called the West Coast Offense.Hey! You be nice!
Seattle wasn’t in the Rams’ division when Chuck Knox coached the Seahawks. Heck they were not even in the NFC at that time.
Actually, my point was the exact- opposite of ‘exactly’ but it’s all good.
You seem to be having a little bit of a stream-of-consciousness working here this morning.
Well, Fisher did bring us Aaron Donald, so he's got that going for him....
Fisher did a decent job fixing the mess that was left from the Linehan/Spags "dynasty". But yeah, the team would have been a winner if he would have trusted the offense to a modern aged mind. Seemed to me that he really thought he knew how to run an offense. However, he was dead wrong on the offense side of things and allowed the team to consistently play undisciplined football. Too many stupid penalties on both sides of the ball. He definitely gets a bad rap, I know I am guilty of it.
His "horrible coach" classification is in the category of "what could have been", as opposed to other losers that were in the "couldnt win a game if the other team didnt show up"
Kind of a cool story there too with Eddie George the head coach
I can see the DV argument, however for me personally, he had two bad seasons and then the best season in Rams history. If McVay had one losing season in four, I'd put DV above him.
For Martz - their first four years are identical - after that Martz never had another winning season, only had three total.
But look at what Martz inherited versus what McVay inherited.
And let's ask ourselves this:
What if Vermeil stayed and Martz got hired away to be a HC somewhere else?
