Not bad, they needed somebody from the defensive side of the ball to actually make an impact, so this selection makes sense. Not sure how he'll handle an offense, unless the rumored Mike Martz return to the Offensive Coordinator comes true.
Interesting, Jason Garrett and Leslie Frazier were rumoured to have been the front-runners, but I guess the Rams wanted someone with more experience (unlike Frazier) and someone who's actually accomplished something in his coaching career (unlike Garrett).
Skinner: Well, I was wrong. The lizards are a godsend.
Lisa: But isn't that a bit short-sighted? What happens when we're overrun by lizards?
Skinner: No problem. We simply release wave after wave of Chinese needle snakes. They'll wipe out the lizards.
Lisa: But aren't the snakes even worse?
Skinner: Yes, but we're prepared for that. We've lined up a fabulous type of gorilla that thrives on snake meat.
Lisa: But then we're stuck with gorillas!
Skinner: No, that's the beautiful part. When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death!
If I were a 10 or 11 team conference I would not be waiting for others to make a move. I would make a pre-emptive strike and boost myself up to 12 before anyone decides to make an offer to 1 or 2 schools.
