Billy Devaney has a Posse

Here’s some news and links about the coaching search and some things to think about.

First, do not be suprised if the Rams are slow in submitting requests for interviews for defensive coordinators Rex Ryan, Jim Schwartz and others.  Billy Devaney interviewed Ryan,  Schwartz, Leslie Frazier (Minnesota DC) and Winston Moss in Atlanta last year and some of the good candidates (ie, Ryan and Schwartz) will skip the first round interviews and be brought in for the final round of interviews in a week or so.  Devaney knows what he likes about these guys already, so the Rams will not be throwing out requests as fast as the Detriot Lions have.

Next, an AP story today by R.B. Fallstrom lists the advisors Devaney will be using for the head coach search.  There are some interesting names in the list: Bobby Beathard, (edited to add: Lawrence McCutcheon) Dan Dierdorf, Marshall Faulk, and gulp…John Shaw.

NY Daily News reports that the Rams will ask permission to speak to Steve Spagnolo of the New York Giants today.

    Mr Devaney,

    As a long time rams fan i would like nothing better then 2 see the rams go back into the payoffs this year, but what needs to be done is simple get some wins. I know you would like 2 trade the #1 pick why not do that with the redskins let them take bradford trade them Marc Bulger & swap 1st round picks (#4) for Jason Campbell & a there 4th round pick. with this you can still have a chance at ether suh or mccoy or even throw everybody a cruveball by pickin up dez bryant we need a #1 wr. I know it’s CRAZY but just look @ this Jason is already a starting QB in the NFL who (by the numbers) has got better every year he just singed a 4 year deal that would bring hi in cheaper then what Marc (Bulger) is or Sam (Bradford) will coast the rams it gives the rams the option to get a DT(or WR) without paying #1 pick money for him. In the 2nd round look to pick up LB S. Weatherspoon from MU it give the rams that much needs shot in the arm at the outside LB & gives the fans a name they know it’s a win win for every body. I know This is just one fans Dream but it can work.
