Rams Vs. Seahawks, Monday Night Football: Rams Have Nothing When They Need It Most

On a day when two NFL head coaches received pink slips, St. Louis Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo needed to walk away from their Monday Night Football game not looking like chumps. A loss was expected. Needless to say, Steve Spagnuolo and Josh McDaniels failed to meet the most basic of expectations.

The Rams fell apart at the seams tonight. The heaven bestowed upon the Rams a string of Seattle penalties to give them more chances than they deserved to score their first touchdown. Seattle promptly responded with a touchdown. What went wrong, take your pick. The whole thing collapsed.

There's only one question to ask: who gets the boot tomorrow?

Steve Spagnuolo may deserve a little credit. He seems to be keeping the lid on a team that's become a neurotic mess. Josh McDaniels was seen unloading on the equally disappointing Sam Bradford on the sidelines. I know I heard rivets creak on this rust bucket as she went down.

Off with both their heads.

It's tough to think of any position coach that should be retained beyond this season. What unit on this team can we honestly say looks acceptable on a regular basis?

And don't limit the blame for this mess to the coaches and front office. The players deserve some accountability in this mess too.

Another question that needs to be asked...who allowed the Rams to start Sam Bradford tonight? The $78 million kid looked like he could barely move, and he kept getting pounded because of his own tentativeness and a woeful collection of Santa's elves protecting him. Physically and psychologically, Bradford is not fit to play right now.

I don't know what's going to happen tomorrow. Something probably should. The Rams played with no soul, no heart when they needed it most. That's really the most inexcusable thing about this game. \
