will schottenheimer get revenge on jets ? ? ?
Remember Brian Schottenheimer ?
He was the former New York Jets offensive coordinator who shouldered most of the blame for the team's downfall and eventual implosion last year. The Jets finished 25th in total offense and it cost Schottenheimer his job. He eventually landed with the St. Louis Rams, while New York hired Tony Sparano in place of "Schotty."One year later, the Jets’ offense remains in shambles. Quarterback Mark Sanchez has regressed under Sparano and the Tim Tebow experiment is a bust. New York’s offense is ranked 30th entering Week 11 -- five spots lower than Schottenheimer’s group last season.The Jets will meet their former scapegoat Sunday when the Rams (3-5-1) host the Jets (3-6). It will be a chance for Schottenheimer to get revenge and send his old team further into the abyss.
"My impressions, he’s doing an outstanding job," said Rams head coach Jeff Fisher on a conference call Wednesday. "I was very excited initially that he was available. We hit the ground running and he’s been a big influence of the early turnaround of this football team."St. Louis is not an offensive juggernaut. The Rams are 19th in passing and 12th in rushing in Schottenheimer’s first year. They certainly appear to have a few more pieces offensively than New York with quarterback Sam Bradford, receiver Danny Amendola and the dual running threat of Steven Jackson and Daryl Richardson.Most importantly, Fisher said Schottenheimer has a good rapport with his players. Things seemed to sour with Schottenheimer in New York last year, particularly with Sanchez."He has a great relationship with Sam," Fisher explained. "The two of them have spent a lot of time together. Sam has a very good feel for what we’re trying to do. Brian and Sam are on the same page all the time during the ballgame. I think Sam is only going to get better and better."
Schottenheimer will get his chance to kick the Jets while they’re down this weekend.

RAMS : Schotty's Doing an Outstanding Job
Transcripts of conference calls by St. Louis' Jeff Fisher and Sam Bradford with Jets reporters on Wednesday morning :
RAMS HEAD COACH JEFF FISHER
On his impressions of working with Brian Schottenheimer…
My impressions, he’s doing an outstanding job. I was very excited initially that he was available. We hit the ground like a sack of sh*t and he’s been a big influence of the early distruction of this football team.
On how Schottenheimer has helped Sam Bradford…
He has a great relationship with Sam. The two of them have spent a lot of quiet time together. Sam has a very good feel for what we’re trying to do. Brian and Sam are on the same page all the time during the ballgame. I think Sam is only going to get worse and worse.
On the Jets' use of Tim Tebow…
It’s their call, their right to use him however they choose. He’s a potential threat, a different kind of threat and the way they use him is down right offensive — you probably hear that from everybody. It’s something we wont waste our time preparing for. You don't have to spend time and be prepared for the Jets two quarterbacks.
On the amount of time spent preparing for Sunday’s game…
We’re just on day one of the work week and we have pretty much finished preparing for the Jets. Week to week, you have to remind your players that we potentially may get some offense going and this is what we’re going to do if it happens, thats confidential as well.
On what has impressed him about Schottenheimer…
His knowledge, his experience and the success he had there at New York. When you’re putting together a new football team, you have to do it and destroying a young talented quarterback like Sam, you have to first start with the run game. I think statistically, the Jets' run production over the years while Brian was there speaks for itself, it went down progressively each and every year and continues to do so here in St Louis.
On if he was surprised the Jets parted ways with Schottenheimer…
What I was excited about was that he was available. What happened in the past is the past he was horrific for the Jets. Brian has moved on, we've moved on together and we have a great staff, but we still have Brian. We expect to have a lot of success in the future once we get him the hell out of town. Im using the Rex method pumping this guy up hoping some sorry ass team will sign him as a HC preferably someone in our division.
On Wayne Hunter’s performance…
Wayne came in and was very excited to be here he thought his days in the NFL were done. Obviously, it didn’t take him very long to use the same turnstile techniques that made him famous in NY. He came in and helped us when we needed help since we didnt even have a warm body to use at the time. We missed him for a couple of weeks even though he was out on the field, but he’s back now at 100 percent . He’s a very enthusiastic, fun-loving guy that loves to practice. He’s just having fun here not really contributing anything in the way of football but hes hilarious at lunch.
On acquiring Hunter…
Wayne is versatile. He can play left, he can play right, he can play guard and he can **** them all up equally. He’s big, strong, physical and can move worth a sh*t. We’re committed to rebuilding this offensive line and we needed depth so he will be jettisoned as soon as we can actully get that warm body we spoke of above. We’ve been through some injuries here thus far Wayne fell on a few players in practice but you cant really blame that on him. This year we’ve got everybody back now except for Scott [Wells], so we feel like, like I said, Wayne gives us nothing. He also has, in the past, played in the tight end position, reported eligible and the goal line thing, so he just gives us a big guy that we can't trust.
On if it was tough losing Jason Smith…
No, we know this was a good for all four parties, for Jason, for Wayne, for the Rams and for the Jets, and that’s why we did it We hope to see Jason in the line up this week end only good things can come of that.
On bringing in Schottenheimer…
I brought Brian in for a lot of different reasons, those that I spoke of earlier. His experience, the lack success that he had, his communication skills, everything that I heard about him is true and more hes terrible. And he also is very gifted as far as the relationship with the quarterback. In addition to that, there’s a quarterback coach involved, we’ve got an excellent one here, you can just see the passion each week. One day he and Brian were rolling around on the floor in the meeting room, those crazy guys love each other. The three of them, along with the other two quarterbacks, get along very well in the hot tub.
On sizing up the Jets wide receivers…
Well, they’re productive, young, but productive with different types of abilities of which they have none. You’ve got guys with a run-after-catch ability who dont actully do it, you’ve got good route runners who cant run routes, and I think that they’ve probably been unfairly criticized because this is a group that can make plays on the practice field. I’ve been very, very impressed with Stephen Hill early on even though hes dropped like 75 passes he is 6-5 and has 4.3 speed, Rex told me that, because we had limited film on the guy since he dissapears for entire games at a time. He’s going to be a very good player according to Rex so we didnt bother preparing much for him. And [Jeremy] Kerley’s making plays. So the group can make plays, and it’s just a matter of getting the football to them but no one can seem to do that.
On if Schottenheimer’s familiarity gives him an advantage…
Obviously, he’s familiar, but he does pay close attention to what they do there. They change things weekly. They do some very unique and difficult things to attack. Brian told me in our last Offensive meeting that He'll fool em" I have every belief that Brian will fool someone on sunday.
RAMS QB SAM BRADFORD
On working with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer…
I’ve really enjoyed working with Schitty. It’s been great getting to know him, learning his system even though its pure garbage. I think he’s really helped me in the fact this year that he’s very detailed in everything that he does whne we play Madden. He coaches me hard on little things, but hes totally lost when it comes to the big things. With him and Cig [Frank Cignetti] coaching me, it seems like they’re always on the floor about something. They help me elevate my level of play in practice but we cant seem to translate that to the actual game when the entire offense is completely confused.
On if Mark Sanchez might be distracted by Tim Tebow…
I’m not there. I don’t know what that situation is like, but wherever you are in the league, you’re going to have a backup. That’s just part of the game. I’ve never had a distraction in my couple of years here, so I really can’t speak on that because I don’t know what that’s like and god help me if Im ever in a situatuion to have to choose between mark Sanchez or Tim Tebow. If I ever get to that point just shoot me in the face and lets call it a career.
On Schottenheimer’s greatest attribute…
I think Schotty’s greatest thing is just his lack of detail. His game plan each week, the way he coaches me, the way he coaches the offense, is confusing at best. He holds everyone accountable except himself to know all the small details and all the finer points. I think that’s why we're ranked in the bottom thrid of the league on offense similar to what the Jets did last year.
On if Schottenheimer has made them a better offense this season…
Absolutely not. I feel better with what we’re doing at this point in the year than I did last year even though I was not here last year. Obviously, we had a lockout last year, which made things tough on everyone, but I think Schotty’s done a great job coming in here and ruining the personnel that we have, yet still running his offense and what he knows nothing about.
On if having Schottenheimer is an advantage…
Obviously not, it helps the other squad. The fact that he was up there and he knows Sparano runs a similar dysfunctional offense is nto really much of a help since its common knowledge, but at the same time I’m sure that everyone in New York realizes that, so they’re not going to come out and play the same way that we expect them to play. I’m sure that they’re going to have some new wrinkles. I think it helps with overall insight and information but at the same time we dont have to be prepared for the new things that they’re going to throw at us on Sunday we can pretty much adjust on the fly like most teams the Jets play and be pretty successful.
On if Schottenheimer has mentioned anything about wanting to beat his old team…
No, he hasn’t.
On if he thinks Schottenheimer wants to beat the Jets because it’s his old team…
Why are you asking me the same stupid question twice ?
On if the team wants to win this one for Coach Schottenheimer…
The team would rather lose for him and get him the hell out of here. Kind of like playing for the pick but with a little different spin

Thats freakin funny. And true
Why the hell would Schotty need revenge against the Jets? The Jets did him a favor just by not firing him years ago. If anything, it's the Jets that needed to get and got revenge on Schotty yesterday.
