When coach spagnolo was asked why he was so maddeningly conservative in the win over the 49ers... "Here's what I know about this league: if you have one more point than they do at the end of the game, it all counts the same," Spagnuolo said in explaining his cautious ways. "The goal is to win the football game. Now again, I would say this. There may be another game going forward where you do it differently. We chose to do it this way, it happened to work out, so this time we were right. Could it have bitten us in the butt? Maybe, yeah. But just all things considered and the way it was going and what we were doing on both sides of the ball, I thought it was the right thing. ... And that's all on me. I'll take the full blame if there is blame, you put it that way." Hopefully our coach of the St Louis Rams learns that the score is a statistic that measures your domination over the other team. In order to have at least 1 more point at the end of the game than the other team has, you have to play to win the football game, instead of playing not to lose it.
