St. Louis Rams general manager Les Snead has been the toast of the town since dealing out of the second spot of the 2012 NFL Draft and landing a quiver full of draft picks as domino effect. He has even inspired his own parody account on Twttier, @LesSneadHair, which is pretty much a sign that you've made it. Snead also had a killer quote from the opening days of training camp as told by Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated. Check it out.
the best quote i picked up during my stop with the rams came from gm les snead, while discussing the team's youth. (cont)— Jim Trotter (@SI_JimTrotter) July 31, 2012
said snead: "the nfl is a jungle that's filled with lions. right now we have a bunch of simbas, walking one behind the other."— Jim Trotter (@SI_JimTrotter) July 31, 2012
Without a doubt the Rams' youth movement has the team well positioned for the future. And if those players are the young lions, does that make Snead the Ring Master? Jeff Fisher the lion tamer ... or the lion king?
