    Question about Pasquerelli comments

    Len P. had written this in one of his articles:

    "Behind all the glitz of the high-octane offense that marked Martz's tenure with the Rams, this has been a dysfunctional franchise, one fraught with infighting and influence-peddling and internecine bickering, and with considerable palace intrigue. There is a sense that everyone has his own agenda, that the various departments rarely work in concert, and that things are frayed at the seams. Someone has to restore order and functionality to the operation."

    My question is, is this true? Or just more unfounded babbling on Pasquerelli's part? I haven't seen anything from the Rams to make me believe this at all, but I'm not really an "insider" so I don't know. I was wondering if maybe people in StL had heard more about it from local coverage or something - that's a pretty big accusation and just had me a little concerned, I'd appreciate any feedback and I apologize if this is already being discussed.

    Basically it is true.

    HB has written as much in the recent edition of gridiron gateway magazine.

    Well a lot of coaches of teams with losing records got fired, that doesn't mean the team is a "dysfunctional franchise" where people in the front office are stabbing each other in the back and everyone goes his own way, tearing the team and the organization apart from the core, which is what Pasquerelli is implying is the case with the Rams. Mike Sherman got fired too and nobody said the Packers are a dysfunctional organization.

    Re: Question about Pasquerelli comments

    The "function" of a professional football organization is to win games. Therefore, any team with a losing record is, by definition, "dysfunctional."

    The rest is just banter to fill newspaper columns and web articles.
