Following the Rams lackluster loss on Sunday to Seattle, head coach Steve Spagnuolo had to start answering questions about his job security after his record fell to 10-32. Spagnuolo said he spoke with team owner Stan Kroenke three weeks ago after the overtime loss in Arizona and added there was no vote of confidence coming from Kroenke.
Spagnuolo won’t go into what he thinks it will take to possibly save his job saying he is focusing on this week’s game against the Cardinals. “It’s just this game, I don’t go that far in the future.”
Last year the Rams were one win away from winning the NFC West, finishing 7-9 with rookie quarterback Sam Bradford. This season Bradford has called it “totally frustrating,” as the team fell to 2-8 and was officially eliminated from playoff contention.
While the Green Bay Packers proved injuries are no excuse for not winning a Super Bowl, the Rams have been hit hard and it would be difficult to pin the 0-6 start all on Spagnuolo and an inability to coach. The Rams have lost both starting cornerbacks, two offensive tackles and by the end of the week, six starters will be placed on injured reserve.
Meanwhile, an update on wide receiver Danario Alexander. It looks like he’ll miss his fifth straight game with a hamstring injury.
