    Spagnuolo Blasts Rams With "Hail To The Redskins"

    09.18.2009 3:12 pm
    Spagnuolo blasts Rams with “Hail to the Redskins”
    By Bill Coats
    St. Louis Post-Dispatch


    The players were expecting simulated crowd noise when the loudspeakers were turned on during practice Friday at Rams Park. Instead, they got heavy doses of “Hail to the Redskins,” the annoying Washington fight song. It was coach Steve Spagnuolo’s idea as the Rams prepared for Sunday’s game at FedEx Field.

    “I guess I’ll take credit for that one. I did,” he said. “I thought about it. I’ve heard it a lot.”

    Spagnuolo went against the Redskins 20 times during his years on the defensive staffs of the Eagles and Giants, fellow NFC East squads.

    Notes & quotes:

    *Spagnuolo was pleased with how the Rams responded in practice this week after the 28-0 shelling they absorbed in Seattle. “They were really focused today,” he said. “Now, there were mistakes all over the place on Wednesday and Thursday, like there normally are. We’re putting in a new game plan and we’re seeing a new team. But I see a lot of guys out there that care. That’s the beginning part. If you have that, you’ve got a chance.”

    *S Craig Dahl (hamstring) and G John Greco (wrist) won’t make the trip to D.C. Both could be back next week.

    *Newcomer Leger Douzable, a 6-4, 305-pound defensive tackle signed to the practice squad Thursday, worked with the scout team.

    *T Eric Young, cut Tuesday, is back with the Rams. He was assigned to the practice squad. WR Sean Walker was released from the practice squad.

    *Former St. Louis Cardinals running back Stump Mitchell is the Redskins’ assistant head coach/running backs coach.

    *QB Marc Bulger needs two completions to become the Rams’ career leader. Jim Everett (1986-93) is the current leader, with 1,847 (in 353 more attempts than Bulger).

    All for now . . .

    Man, that's gotta be one annoying practice. haha

    I'm excited to play guys! Let's hope we can come out like we did in the first half against Seattle, without the opening fumble.

    Exactly. But no one gives him the respect he deserves because the TEAM can't win games.

    At least it is a real song, not just "here we go steelers, here we go" or something equally simple.

    I love that Spags played it for them during practice. I'll bet they are thinking forward to the game instead of thinking about the seahawks.

    Of course it would be to a non-skins fans. But we love it. Its heritage. I have been hearing that as long as I can remember being in diapers!

    I'm all up for using everything possible to get the team motivated. I do like that Spags said the team seemed more "focus."
    Because focus would have cut out several of those bonehead penalties last week.
