Re: The Fisher McVay combination

This is correct. When the Rams won the superbowl with Warner, Vermeil finally had to ease up a little because the prior two camps were hell and players were complaining. He built a tough team.

McVay inherited a beast of a team from Fisher and those players were the basis for the Goff superbowl. We really just needed a better offensive coordinator under Fisher, but he was just too old school. The NFL had passed him up, other than his tough D.

McVay was the perfect guy to step in, bring in a Robert Woods and Brandon Cooks, etc... to open up the offense.

Even though that Fisher team deteriorated over the next few years, whenever the Rams identified a weakness, Snead had the green light to open up Kroenke's wallet and go get a top player to fill in. And last year they had a handful of band-aids and gambled, and got lucky, that the injury bug didn't bite them.

Fast forward to now, we spent all the money, sold away all the picks and we are left with a handful of aging superstars and a bunch of scrubs to fill in the gaps... oh, and Cooper Kupp.

Meanwhile, McVay is popping up on TV commercials and can always jump to the booth if times get rough.

This is more than likely not going to end well. You look at the eagles and the Bills and the dolphins and the giants and the cowboys... they are built for the future. We are paying the piper and it came sooner than expected. We thought we would get a 3 year winning window with Stafford, Donald, Ramsey and Kupp.

It appears we only got 1 year.

  It honestly has crossed my mind but I say we have to give it 2...maybe 3 years before we answer.
