So the regular season ended yesterday. Thank God! Not a moment too soon if you ask me. You may be experiencing a sense of loss, but not me. If you are a Ram-fan, you have been waiting for the end of this nightmare for sometime now. It couldn't end soon enough. You are glad you finally woke up from a long and tormented sleep.
The deed has been done. Steve Spagnuolo and Billy Devaney have been fired. You can read about it here. As you know, I have been gunning for Devaney for the better part of two years. His poor eye for talent and his sub-par drafts are what got us here. You can seriously question his priority list also. I am less keen to see Spags go.
Now it is time for the real work to begin. Now we have to begin the rebuild in earnest.
I will be out of my mind with rage if we hire Jeff Fisher. I won't have it. That just might be the end of my 31 years as a Ram-fan. I don't care what anybody says, Jeff Fisher is not a coaching A-Lister. His record with the Oilers/Titans was very mediocre. He never won the Super Bowl, we beat him in the Super Bowl, and his Titans often failed to make the playoffs. He was the most over-rated coach in the league during his long tenure with the Oilers/Titans.
The only big credit to Jeff Fisher's his name is the fact that he knows how to last in a Bush-League organization. I want Stan Kroenke to know that if he hires Jeff Fisher, he's sending the wrong message. He's sending the message that he wants a coach who can last in a Bush-League organization... like the Rams.
Furthermore, I am hoping and praying the Chargers will not fire A.J. Smith. I am hoping and praying he will not even be available for the Rams' candidate list. Hiring A.J. will certainly be the end of my 31 years as a Ram fan. I hate that guy with a passion. He is an A-Lister on the ass-hole list. He is one of the few 100% pure, unrefined, unadulterated assholes in the NFL. Most assholes have at least a few trace quantities of impurities in their asshole nature. Not A.J. Smith. He is 100% pure asshole.
