Marshall Faulk apparently would clean house in St. Louis
While perusing the latest issue of Sporting News, we noticed an NFL 2010 Power Poll ranking the 32 franchises heading into the next season.
At the bottom reside the Rams, with this quote from former St. Louis great Marshall Faulk: “They’ve earned the No. 32 spot. It’s well-deserved. The Rams are more worried about firing their trainer and equipment manager than they are worried about the coaches responsible for the play on the field. That says a lot. When the first offseason move you make is to fire your trainer? Perfect.”
Faulk’s message should be regarded as ominous within the building, given that he has been mentioned as a possible candidate to join the ownership group cobbled together by Dave Checketts -- and Faulk is interested. If Shahid Khan’s bid falls through, Checketts could be the next man up.
And if Faulk has any say in St. Louis, coach Steve Spagnuolo might decide to pull the rip cord in his contract.
