St. Louis Rams Notes, Quotes 2009-02-28
--Coach Steve Spagnuolo said the staff is still working on the structure of both the team's offense and defense.


Said Spagnuolo, "It's ongoing. We'll have a starting point certainly on defense certainly with things we did in New York. And Ken Flajole, our defensive coordinator, will bring a lot of things from Carolina."

As for the offense, Spagnuolo said, "Pat Shurmur coming from Philadelphia, certainly that will be a starting point. But until we can get on the field with the players and have a real good feel for what we have talent-wise, and where we're strong and where we're weak, we won't have to make any complete decisions scheme-wise. But that'll be a starting point."

--After the Rams opted to place the franchise tag on S Oshiomogho Atogwe, Spagnuolo was asked about his ability.

"I've been fortunate to work with some really good safeties, both in Philadelphia and New York," he said. "I think O.J.'s got some of those qualities. We'll have a better idea when we get him out on the field. That's one thing -- it's hard for all the coaches to pass judgment on (players) right now. You really get a feel for your players when you get a chance to get out there and work with them. And we haven't done that yet. So it's all off the film."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "He's very smart. He's very good with people. He's very direct. He's very personable. He's an excellent football coach and communicator. He has great energy. He'll provide the kind of leadership that's necessary for his staff. He has an ability to have his finger on what is going well, what isn't, and he will take responsibility for that which isn't. So I think he'll be a head coach that will be very sincere. Players have enjoyed playing for Steve, and they like the system that he brings. So he'll be an outstanding coach for the Rams." -- Giants coach Tom Coughlin on Rams new coach Steve Spagnuolo, who was the Giants' defensive coordinator the last two seasons.
