  1. Question 1: why was he available? Probably because he’s not good at his job. But who really knows. statement: No good coach in their right mind would come to this situation with the HC entering year 6 coming off of 3 non-playoff years, 2 years left on his deal (which really means that he’ll either be extended or fired after this season because you don’t let any coach go into a lame duck season), no QB to speak of and not a lot of salary cap room to play with if they had ANY other option. Because if this year goes badly, and coaches are smart enough to know given the situation that’s fairly likely no matter how good they do individually, the whole crew might be thrown out on its ear. So question 2? Why did this guy come here? Answer: he had no other options. Its just another clear indication Dan had no idea what he was getting when he decided to stay pat with Bruce and Jay. The unintended consequences were obvious to every year except him. #FireThemAllOfThem

    @Skinsinparadise also, there might be a difference here in that Dan and Gregg have a relationship. And I kinda think in this scenario, Dan is involved. I kinda doubt Gregg would talk to anybody but Dan. I mean, im surr he’ll sit with Bruce and Jay, but at the end of the day, Gregg will want to talk to Dan. Actually I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Bruce and Jay would prefer to roll with Manusky (known quantity who won’t rock the boat), but Dan just can’t quite hold his patience anymore and is forcing a change. If that’s the case then Dan closes the deal, not Bruce, and for all his faults, Dan’s good at that when he wants to be. Dan’s problem is that he has chosen to close the deal with the wrong guy too often.

    I guess that’s fair.

    It’s true that the rams added a few pieces the last couple years. But look what happened when you went from Fisher, who’s the biggest coaching fraud of all time to McVay who’s looking like the next Bill Walsh. Fisher is so bad.

    McVay just got his first playoff win in year #2. At age 33. Damn impressive.

    I thought for 1 second he was going to run out of bounds...

    On which okay did you expect it? i was hoping for it on first down. Why run into a brick wall that knows you’re coming

    But they know they’re going to run. Which is is why I don’t like running on first and second down...

    With three TOs and the 2min warming with the new onside kick rules, I’d probably kick away and try and play defense.

    The ref went in to reset the ball... for no reason.

    That was a dumb penalty by Talib.

    He was never good though. He was a try hard, maximize takent guy but physically limited. Watch him vs. AP, you can see the difference in talent and vision in 3 plays...

    I also think his philosophy is just more aggressive and he wants the team up at the line quickly. I don’t think that’s Gruden’s philosophy, which isn’t a knock. Some like to move more quickly and others like to be more methodical. To each their own. Hell, the Patriots are not known for moving very quickly, so anything can work if you execute. But McVay likes to get up to the line quickly and then has a lot of time for window dressing. It’s actually very Gibbs like. They ran the same 4 running plays out of 75 formations and switches and shifts.

    That’s ballsy. That’s playing to win. For the record I would have taken the points.

    It’s a very diverse game plan.

    I love how quickly the Rams get to the line and then how much time they have for motion and shifts

    Both receivers were open, and Goff just had a John Beck type out of body experience. McVay believes you should break tendency and pass in some running situations to catch the defense off guard. But if your QB misses open guys by 5 yards, not much you can do.

    I bet Aikman sees throws like those last 2 from Goff and to himself just is like, “amateurs.”
