    We hear one interviewee for the Rams’ head-coaching job — there were eight altogether — who definitely did not impress the team’s hierarchy was Cowboys defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, whose broad vision of the team was reportedly not up to snuff.

    From PFW.

    Guess they didn't want the 3-4 in St. Louis ?...lol

    Or maybe they asked him an offensive question ?

    From watching Zimmers defense for the past 6 years, I get this feeling that he adapted Tampa's cover 2 defense (prevent defense) over the years and he is good at only that. He can coach a weak group of players to do his prevent defense (bend but don't break defense) but doesn't know how to coach an attacking defense. He is not one of the creating defensive minds who can hide his defense weakness while utilizing the talent of superstars. We have one weakness on our defense, FS, still it was exposed constantly. He wouldn't know how to attack if he is given all 11 probowlers this year, he will have a top 5 prevent defense with no sacks/turnovers with all probowl squad. JMHO

    Yes..... a real FS would have stuffed the run vs Philly (180 yards), KC (150 yards), Denver (144 yards) DC (171 yards).

    My inside sources tell me that the Rams were looking for more of a Lenny instead of a Squiggy.

    Zimmer must have had an incredibly poor interview. He had a lot going for him. Rumor is that they want a defensive minded coach. Plus, Zimmer just played the Rams, so if anyone has that rosters and its strengths and weaknesses fresh in their mind, it's him.

    No, it was just a general football question.
    On his application it asked what was his current position and current employer. Guess he missed it. :lmao2:

    LOL

    Rams: So Squiggy what defense do you run?

    Squiggy: One with a number I just get confused.

    Rams: Uh...what are you talking about.

    Squiggy : Well it was a 4-3, then it was a cover 2, then a 4-3 and then a 3-4...too many numbers to remember.

    They might have wanted a defensive minded coach, but they hired an offensive guy in Linehan..

    Well I would be really interested in knowing how our defense was ranked for games 1-8 vs 9-16 for the last 6 years. I am just asking this as I don't know how to compile that myself
