Can’t Say I Agree With This

So, today the St. Louis Rams are the focus of the “Why Your Team Sucks” Feature at Deadspin that was written by someone named “Adam S”.  I have to say that of all the things he picks, he could have done much better.  It’s obvious this guy hasn’t watched Rams football is 5+ years.  Careful, naughty language warning at the link here.

He picks: Rich Brooks, Tony Banks, Brenda Warner and Mike Martz.

Come on Adam, that’s awful.  The Rams have plenty of recent reasons to enumerate why they suck.  Why pick some old news?

I think I can do considerably better after the jump.

1. Scott Linehan – The Rams hired Scott Linehan and it was obvious he was way over his head from day 1.  Luckily he was out of the national media spotlight, otherwise Bill Simmons would have come up with the “Scott Linehan face”, which looks like he just smelled rotten trash.

2. “I’m a *$%#@* throat-slasher” – Old, but part of the old dysfunctional regime at Rams Park which made the schism in Vikings camp look like a sidewalk crack.  This quote was left by former Rams executive Samir Suleiman on the voice mail of a Rams reporter.

3. 2008 happened – The Rams were in the running with the Detroit Lions for the worst DVOA ever according to Football Outsiders, but some late season “good” play kept them out of that range.

4. 5 wins in 2 years – Enough said.

5. Lukewarm fan support – Rams fans have previously come under fire from Rams players for selling their tickets to visiting team’s fans.  Teams that travel well like Chicago, Green Bay and San Francisco will have over 50% fan support in the Rams “home” stadium.  Rams fans are not like Cardinal fans (who fill Busch Stadium regardless of the team’s record), but when the Rams win and shows fight, they will return.

UPDATE – a commenter on the Deadspin story posts the picture of Kenneth Darby being tackled by the umpire.  That’s a good enough reason as well.  That pretty much sums up the Rams of the past 2 years.
