Just in case you have yet to understand why the St. Louis Rams are starting over again this year, an anecdote from one of their former scouts will tell you all you need to know.

Discord, disharmony and a bunch of other disses used to define the Rams' front office, from owner through her henchmen to the coaches engaged in the territorial pissing matches. Time and again that led to poor decision making, from LA to Anaheim to St. Louis. Nowhere was that more evident than when it came to the draft.

Fortunately, it never came down to that for the Rams. I don't know where then-head coach Dick Vermeil came down on the table vote Lande describes, but his tenure with the Rams was the only stable one until recently. The Rams took Grant Wistrom with the sixth pick in the 1998 draft.
