WHAT THE FAULK? MARSHALL WANTS TO COACH THE RAMS
In an excellent Monday Night Countdown segment in which ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reviewed the status of various embattled head coaches, Mort mentoned that former Rams running back Marshall Faulk wants to be the next head coach of the team. Seriously. Our take? The dude has been hanging around Deion Sanders too much. As you might recall, Sanders tried a couple of years ago to throw his fedora into the ring for the Falcons job -- with zero experience in coaching or personnel evaluation and/or management. Faulk, like Deion, simply doesn’t have the credentials to be a head coach. He could be an assistant coach, and then he could gradually learn the side of the business he never saw while he was a player. And then after working his way up the ladder and gaining some experience he might be ready to become a candidate for a head-coaching job. Still, there’s no way Faulk can waltz right in as a head coach, and if he thinks he can then he’s delusional. Or stupid. Or both.
