Rams’ choice means Keim stays

Posted by Darren Urban on February 12, 2012 – 11:46 am

The St. Louis Rams finally chose a general manager Saturday, picking Les Snead from the Atlanta front office, meaning the Cardinals will keep their director of player personnel Steve Keim, who had interviewed for the job. The Rams had poked around the Cards a couple of times this offseason, also talking to defensive coordinator Ray Horton for their then-vacant head coaching job, but in the end, the Cards came out intact.

Keim, whose general manager candidacy chances aren’t going to end, has been important part of the Cards’ draft work for many years.

    Nah… If other teams can hold onto their people I don’t see why we can’t.

    I hope neither of them leave but I think Horton will eventually be a head coach. I just hope he passes on his skills. Our defense at the end of last year was inpressive. Its never been. I am looking forward to next season.

    Steve Keim > Rod Graves = Steve Keim should be the Cardinals GM.

    People on this site are truly drinking the kool-aid on Horton and Keim. Let’s face it- Warner lifted Keim’s boat, too. Keim has been with the Cardinals for 13 years- what has he done. Horton did a nice job at the end of last year of motivating the defense to play pretty good for a Cardinal defense.
    The last nine games of 2011 has put the kool-aid on free flow. And to think there wasn’t a convincing victory during the year.
    Sure we will lose Horton and Keim in the future- and the Peter Principle will live on because of it.
    All teams lose coaches and players but a few are able to keep the winning going despite the losses. The problem the Cardinals have is not keeping people of modest talent but rather, are they ridding themselves of “dead wood” as in Rod Graves and some of the overrated players.

    Gotta wonder whether the Rams were genuinely interested in Steve and Ray or if they were merely sniffing around to gain “free” intelligence.

    It’s only good news that Keim is staying if he can finally decide to identify some top-flight OLinemen for Graves to sign.

    Otherwise, Kolb and Helter Skelter will be constantly harassed, hit and sacked.

    He’s not even a glass half empty.. He looks for reasons just to say ‘ I told you so” or just one unhappy camper with his life..
