Tuesday is here, and the means you can start trying to erase the latest disaster from the St. Louis Rams out of your head...until next Sunday at any rate. Head Coach Steve Spagnuolo delivered another mile-long injury report yesterday, but the real news came when someone in the St. Louis media asked him about his job security.
