I checked out the chat with Jim Thomas over at STLToday.com, and one thing that was abundantly clear was that for most Rams fans, it’s not a question of IF Steve Spagnuolo will be fired, but a question of WHEN. It seemed like every question that came up involved the scenario after Spags is gone. I am finding it very difficult to find reasons why Spags will be back next season. I would like to give him the benefit of the doubt, but I don’t know if I can anymore.
For what it’s worth, it sounds like Stan Kroenke has yet to make a decision on Spags and Billy Devaney according to Thomas. It sounds like Kroenke is going to evaluate the performance of the team over the final five weeks before he decides what’s next for this franchise. I would love it if this team would show something down the stretch to help Spags keep his job, but I’d say it’s a long shot. It would be nice if this organization could keep from turning over the front office and coaching staff every three years, but if the team is going to struggle to contend every season, they just have to keep trying until they get it right. I don’t know what the right answer is, but we should have some answers in the next few weeks.
