After a disappointing 24-7 home loss to the Seattle Seahawks (4-6), how big of a hit will the St. Louis Rams (2-8) take in the latest NFL Power Rankings?
After falling 24-7 at home to the Seattle Seahawks, there simply aren't many things nice to say about this current iteration of the St. Louis Rams. Even overlooking their abysmal 1-7 conference record, fans and analysts are starting to become increasingly restless with a coaching staff that has failed to help the team put together any meaningful stretch of quality play. Here's what Ryan Van Bibber at SB Nation's St. Louis Rams blog, Turf Show Times, had to say after Sunday's loss:
The Rams coaching staff may very well get a break because of the rash of injuries that the Rams have suffered this season. That would be gross negligence. Bradford is a prime example of the coaching staff's failure this season. With a shortened offseason, the Rams insisted on implementing an uber complex offense with holdovers at the coaching positions except for the new offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. McDaniels was supposed to take Bradford under his wing; instead, the coach has been overwhelmed with the other duties related to implementing an offense and relying on young players to make it work.
Head Coach Steve Spagnuolo has refused to speculate on his future as the head coach of the team in a recent press conference, but at 2-8 the questions will surely continue to mount.
