Re: Black Monday: NFL Coaches and Executives Carousel

If you love someone...let them go?

Seriously though, maybe it's what Smith wants. Why not give him the opportunity to go home again?

I didnt know he was from Pittsburgh. I guess he wouldnt have interviewed if he was happy here. He's been excellent for us for many years, so its a big loss for us, but he has the right to chose whatever job he wants. I just wish we could have found a way to make him want to stay.

Danny Smith's ST units have performed well this season (past Cundiff), and I had no issues with him staying on as long as they continue to perform. If he wants to go and make some more coin, can't blame the guy. He can take that useless bum Banks with him while he's at it.

Re: Black Monday: NFL Coaches and Executives Carousel

Dan Snyder says he fired Vinny Cerrato for letting him hire Jim Zorn

Headline sums it up. An interesting nugget nonetheless.

Re: Black Monday: NFL Coaches and Executives Carousel

Heard Smith's parents live their, and are not in the greatest of health?

Also, can Snyder then fire himself for letting himself hire Cerrato twice?

Re: Black Monday: NFL Coaches and Executives Carousel

Speaking of Snyder, somebody wondered why people still believe Snyder was involved in football operations and my retort would be the following that was posted by LL/HTTR-24/7


Quote:
Yep.. That is Snyder for you.. Cold one minute and hot the next. He went from cussing Shanahan out the monday after the bye week "Evaluation" talk to debating a extension 7 games later. The decision to stay with Haslett is a weak point, hope it doesn't cost the team next season.

Quote:
Everything with this team is Snyders call at the end of the day.Owners are owners for a reason, they sit back until they don't want to sit back anymore.

So it makes me think that Haslett and other coaches are staying based off of Snyder's decision to keep them on or his reluctance to pay top dollar for alternatives.

Now, he does mention Snyder not being involved in personnel decisions for the most part.

Quote:
He is not really involved in too many personnel decisions.. Rare, but when he is upset it's known.

Re: Black Monday: NFL Coaches and Executives Carousel

Apparently Rob Ryan's "I will be out of work for 5 minutes" quote didn't pan out how he thought…. Shmuck

Rob Ryan won't be St. Louis Rams' defensive coordinator -- Jeff Fisher - ESPN

Re: Black Monday: NFL Coaches and Executives Carousel

Gregg the Bounty Hunter and the Rams would have been a perfect fit for each other. Remember all of the dirty, cheap tactics they used against us this year? Granted they probably only went that far because the replacement refs were allowing them, but that's definitely a bunch of players who would have bought into Williams' "scheme".

Hilarious! I love it.


Whatever reason Dan has for firing Vinny is a good one to me...although the axe came down about 10 years late.

Myers also reported that Jim Fassel was so convinced he was getting the job in early 2008 that “he started to gather his belongings in Phoenix for the move to Washington.” But fans were rebelling, and Zorn wound up with the gig.
Look everyone, it was OUR FAULT that Zorn was hired!

I was for Fassel over Zorn. My choice was Gregg Williams at the time...I have to tell the truth!

Re: Black Monday: NFL Coaches and Executives Carousel

I mean the truth is Snyder let Cerrato hire Zorn because Cerrato's ego was too fragile to handle an established HC

I'm in the same position as you. To me he seemed like a middle of the road ST coach. He definitely was not the worst but I have always felt we could be doing a LOT better.

Almost happy he's gone.

That screams bad judgement??? Back to my point earlier.
