So, here’s how it all went down. Marc Schlereth NFL “analyst” went on Mike and Mike in the morning radio show and said that the Rams were the worst team in the NFL, their organization was in shambles and they weren’t competing on either side of the ball.
So, I guess its obvious that Mark Schlereth hasn’t paid attention to the Rams in at least a year. The organization is not in shambles. Sure, there’s a “For Sale” sign in the lawn, but the leadership from Billy Devaney to Coach Spagnuolo is strong. And when Billy got word of this, watch out.
“I’ll be honest, I’ve got to take a deep breath, because that really pisses me off. … When he says something like we’re not competing, how the hell does he know? I guarantee you he hasn’t watched one of our games. You can say we had a stinker in Seattle and we made a ton of mistakes. And that’s fine. But to say we’re not competing is totally asinine.”
“It frosts me. It just ticks me off a little bit. We’re fighting our guts out there. If you want to say we’re no good right now, I don’t have a problem with that. But don’t question our heart. Don’t question our competitiveness.”
“Don’t say we’re in a shambles,” Devaney said. “We’ve gone to great lengths to improve the attitude and bring in the right kind of players in here. To our players’ credit, they do have heart.”
“We’re 0-2,” Devaney added. “We’ve got to eat everything right now…all we can do is win some games and change people’s minds about us.”
Schlereth, you have been put on notice.
