If you followed the Josh McDaniels roller coaster that went down on Tuesday like I did, you have to be happy that it is finally finished. First the two sides hit a snag and it looked like the deal wasn’t going to get done, then a little while later he was officially the new St. Louis offensive coordinator. I made it known that McDaniels was my pick early on, so obviously I love this move. For anyone who wants to check out the press conference with coach Steve Spagnuolo and conference call with McDaniels on Wednesday, tune in to 101 ESPN in the St. Louis area or listen to it online at 101espn.com.
For all of you Twitter people out there, you might be interested to know that the Rams players were very vocal on the site today in response to the hire. Here are some of the posts from the players:
Kenneth Darby: Josh Mcdaniel! i dont know the guy personally but i believe he will be a good piece to our Rams organization puzzle. Lets get it.
Donnie Avery: Happy we got Josh McDaniels as the Offensive Coordinator for the Rams. Heard nothing but good things about him.
Steven Jackson: Just got off the phone w/ coach McDaniels.. I’m looking forward to working w/ him; @miklasz I enjoyed speaking w/ u today. I believe he is a good hire. I’m looking forward to being involved n passing game as well as rushing
Chris Long: just read we hired mcdaniels, if so great hire, really exciting.
If you can’t get excited about that, I don’t know what else you need. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post that will recap the presser and give my thoughts on what exactly McDaniels brings to the table.
