Point/Counterpoint: Steve Spagnuolo Will Be Executed By St. Louis Rams Fans In 2011

Point: St. Louis Rams fans generally want to murder head coach Steve Spagnuolo in cold blood. They blame him for the offensive shortcomings of the team, its recent defensive disintegration, the European sovereign-debt crisis, Sam Bradford's failure to develop into a star quarterback in two years, and his inability to play the week the Rams finally did something neat and acquired Brandon Lloyd

Counterpoint: It's very dark in the Edward Jones Dome, and Rams fans often complain about their inability to see the action on the field. Coordinating a firing squad, let alone firing the shots, would be a difficult feat at best, especially if Spagnuolo were to get friendly with the guy who runs the lights.

Point: Steve Spagnuolo sucks and is a big jerk and the defense isn't even good now, what's his jerky problem, right? 

↵

Counterpoint: I mean, okay, you're right about that. But hey, Robert Quinn has a sack, right? That's cool. And Chris Long leads the team, which makes sense. The Rams' offense was terrible last year; this year's problem is that the defense is just as bad as the offense. Which—what was I arguing against, again?

Point: Executing Steve Spagnuolo.

Counterpoint: Oh. Well, I mean, you could fire him, but private execution is illegal, I think. But definitely consider the firing.
