When it rains, it pours. Gregg Williams has been plastered all over the internet today after a NFL report concluded he was part of a bounty program that started as far back as his time with the Redskins. Now, former Colts Head Coach Tony Dungy has told Pro Football Talk that the Titans also used these mythical 'bounties' on his players. Unless he has insider information on the 2011 Titans, he is referring to a team led by none other than new Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher.

Our own 3k asked a good three-part question in his article today explaining the GreggGate Fiasco:

...What does it say about a franchise that brings in a coach willing to defy league convention so willingly? What level of investigation did the Rams take toward hiring Williams? And what procedures do they have in place to make sure that this wouldn't have happened in St. Louis?


It may not be damning evidence, but it appears that Jeff Fisher and the St. Louis Rams may be swept up into the next big scandal for the NFL. Obviously, the Rams aren't at fault for any of this, but it certainly won't get them any thumbs up from the league offices for hiring a staff comprised of coaches who ignore the gold standard safety rules.

Opinions may differ about the severity, but it's clear that the Rams new coaching staff is in some deep shit for their past deeds- kaka that may carry over into the 2012 season.
