Josh McDaniels reportedly leaning towards Rams

Josh McDaniels, Steve Spagnuolo

Josh McDaniels’ return to the NFL is expected to come within the next 24 hours, and it sounds like he’s headed to St. Louis.

NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi reports McDaniels is close to deciding between the Vikings and Rams, and that he’s “probably” going to pick the Rams.  McDaniels would then be paired with Steve Spagnuolo, his adversary in Super Bowl 42.

It seems like an easy choice for McDaniels considering Sam Bradford’s presence in St. Louis.

We’re a little surprised the Rams would be so quick to go away from the scheme that worked for Bradford as a rookie.   There also has to be some fear that McDaniels could wind up leaving town in a few years, robbing Bradford of the continuity so many top quarterbacks are afforded.

    Hope he goes to the rams. That would be huge for bradford, even if he does leave after a few years, or kroenke will pay him garrett money to stay longer.

    I’d rather have McDaniels being the OC for a couple years over Pat Shurmur’s run, run, 2 yard pass scheme that helped make the Rams a bottom third offensive team.

    He seems like a prick, but he also seems like he’s a good coach, minus his ego.

    Can’t lose when you pick the team that has a franchise QB waiting for you. Minn is in turmoil with the way that Brett left that team. Let some other poor schmuck try to straighten them out.

    I hope Steven Jackson likes draw plays and screen passes. That’s all he’ll be seeing.
