Ok, I am not going to post another gem about our inept front office and coaching staff, because I feel that I may be beating a dead horse. At this point we know that most of the things I have written and commented on have come to fruition and that it is time to touch on a possible solution.
Hey Sammmy! It might be time to claim the Stl/soon to be LA Rams as your team. Your body language reeks of defeat and of someone standing over your shoulder saying "don't call anyone out, you also make mistakes". My advise to you would be to take this team over. Spags will not be here after this season nor should Devaney, so now is the time. The cards are laid out perfectly. If the coaching staff doesn't want to motivate YOUR offense, then it is up to you to do so. Look to your forefathers for inspiration (Marino, Manning, Steve Young, Favre, Warner to name a few) and you will notice one very common factor. Leadership to the enth degree! Marino would send his receivers off of the field after a drop and sometimes tell Schula off after, Manning has been in some physical altercations with his line and receivers, Warner often screamed at Bruce and Holt for not giving their best.
This is the fire that you have to display! Fuck the "Four Pillars". Not one great team has been founded on "virtue and kindness". This is pro football for god's sake! Laurence Taylor was/is a SOB, Rodney Harrison was a dirty SOB and Ronnie Lott would have been fined his entire contract for head hunting. Of course I shouldn't leave Nate Newton and Michael Irvin out either. The "four pillars" should crumble the first time you get in the face of Brandon Gibson and tell him, he shouldn't have a spot on this roster or tell Jackson he missed his block and cost the team. This is your team! Jackson has is nearing the end of a great career and means nothing to the success of this offense, very obviously (almost 1,400 yrds in 09' = 1-15).
You are a starting QB in the NFL and one with ALLl of the tools to be a star. You face and will increasingly face the most criticism for our offensive ineptitude. It's time to take the reigns and show the NFL that there is a reason you went #1 overall and that most teams wanted to draft you. You are Sam Bradford, QB of the Rams. You can control and dictate your offense! Start sending players off of the field when they drop a pass, get in your lineman's faces when they miss a block, tell Jackson he needs to stop dancing before he hits the line. F' Spags, let him lose his job while you become a leader. I want to see wide open eyes, cleats digging in before a collision and a Bradford lead Rams victory after the bye. 78 million dollars for the 30th ranked QB in the NFL. You have got to be kidding.
Bradford should read "Invictus" before every game!
