The Rams stock is going south faster than Wall Street's monumental implosion. The STL roster has more holes than a pasta colander on both sides of the ball. Years of drafts doomed by overdependence on measurables at the expense of getting physical, battle tested in big time program FOOTBALL PLAYERS, shortsighted free agency acquisitions and negligent roster architecting, cap management and depth development have caught up with the franchise in a big way. We are witnessing the unfolding (upchucking?) of a full blown organizational reverse peristalsis. HC Scott Linehan has deservedly become a focal point of ire and derision, but it would be remiss and ultimately suicidal for the new ownership to not trace the root of the sickness back to its logical conclusion at the source. The late Georgia Rosenbloom was a hands off owner, and ostensible front office lead and President John Shaw doesn't even live in St. Louis. As Bryan Burwell pointed out in a series of scathing indictments of the pathetic state of the product being put on the field, hopefully it won't escape the attention of new owner Chip Rosenbloom that the Rams recent regression into league laughing stock and punchline to a nightmare for fans has coincided with some highly questionable decisions made by GM Jay Zygmunt (he needs to ultimately be accountable for the hiring of Linehan and some of the recent blown draft/free agent opportunities). Rosenbloom in a Captain Obvious announcement noted that immanent improvement was needed or changes would soon be forthcoming. To simply make the admittedly incompetent looking Linehan the scapegoat without the addressing the deeper, underlying cracks and faultlines tearing the once high-flying organization apart would be like slapping a Band-Aid on a patient undergoing the final stages of septic shock and systemic organ failure. On a cheerier note, second overall pick in the 2008 draft, DE Chris Long (3-1) got the first of what will be sure to be many future sacks in a career that only catastrophic injury can stand in the way of being long and distinguished. The absence of possibly their best defensive player, DE Leonard Little, with a hamstring injured contributed to a lack of pressure up front and enabled QB Eli Manning to surgically carve up a STL secondary which has been way out of their depth in the first two weeks against the likes of Donovan McNabb and Manning. It was good to hear that Little launched an enraged post-game chair-throwing and profanity-laced tirade in the locker room, which is the only rational response to the perception that some Rams are quitting on the team and just there to cash a paycheck.
