It's Official

The Rams stink.

It's also official that Scott Linehan is gone.
He was fired Monday morning, following another
embarrassing 31-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills, in
St Louis.

Jim Haslett has been named "interim" head coach.

Linehan tried to save his job on Sunday by making
personnel changes, but it was too little, too late.

The only thing Linehan accomplished by doing this,
was to piss the Rams players off. Steven Jackson went
public with his dislike of the benching of Bulger.

Whenever you have players speaking out in the media
against their coach, it's nothing but trouble.

At 11-25 Linehan will go down in Rams history as
the third worst losingest coach.

Under Linehan the Rams have lost 17 of their last
20 games. Folks, this is the bottom of the barrel.

Going into the "bye" week, this is perfect timing
to make this move. Is it the right move? I don't
think so. What has Jim Haslett accomplished as the
Rams defensive coordinator?

In yesterdays game the Rams were up at half-time 14-6.
The Rams were outscore 25-0 in the second half. Nice

Going back to last season the Rams have given up
30 plus points in seven straight games. As a
defensive coordinator, is that acceptable? What
a nightmare.

Yes fans it's official, the Rams stink and the
future doesn't look any better.

After two weeks of playing "real" games, the Rams are 0-2.
They look awful.

Against Philadelphia (excuse me for digressing, I was on vacation),
the Rams defense, if you could call it that, gave up 522 total yards.
In this day and age of the NFL that is unheard of.

The Eagles with an aging McNabb, schooled the Rams in every facet
of the game. The biggest one sided stat(besides the yardage and the
SCORE) was the time of possession. The Eagles had it for 35:10 to
the Rams 24:50. Ten minutes in the NFL is a lifetime.

Good teams can score 2-3 times in that period of time. Bad defensive
teams will let them. Yesterday the Rams took on the Superbowl
Champion N.Y. Giants. Repeat week 1. The Rams were blown
out again.

The defense gave up 441 total yards for the game. This is

The Giants rushed for 200 yards against them. When are the
Rams going to learn that you have to stop the run?!

In the first two games the Rams have been outscored 79-16.

I think the Rams defense needs to look themselves in the mirror
and question why they are playing the game. The Rams have a
long and distinguished history, and have had loads of Pro bowl
players. It's time for the Rams as a whole (I'm actually including
the offense) to suck it up and try to play with some pride.
