The Rams' reputation for front-office stinginess and shortsightedness far predates John Robinson.
Robinson provided stability and respectability to an organization that had become a laughingstock. He is a charismatic, popular leader who knows the game, and for several seasons has gotten exceptional performances from players who, for the most part, possess average talent.
The Rams don't need a new coach. They need ownership whose first priority is fielding a championship football team, and isn't afraid to pay the people to get the job done.
