In some potentially unfortunate news for the Rams, running backs coach Sylvester Croom is reportedly going to interview for an opening on Nick Saban’s Alabama coaching staff. Croom is well-liked by the players and the rest of the coaches, and he has done a particularly good job with Steven Jackson. Croom isn’t gone yet, but I think it would be an unfortuate and understated loss for the Rams organization if he does leave. I’ll keep everyone posted when more news comes out on his status.
Jackson’s TD For Charity – I got an email yesterday informing me that thanks to SJ39’s touchdown in Sunday’s Pro Bowl, $5,000 will be donated to the local St. Louis United Way chapter courtesy of Proctor & Gamble. The donation is all part of P&G’s “Touchdown For Kids” initiative, so I just wanted to acknowledge the company and Jackson for doing their part to help out the city.
