Bathroom slumbers mean football season to Spagnuolo

07:56 AM ET 09.10 | Steve Spagnuolo is ready for football season. We know this because he's sleeping in the bathroom again. Umm ... the bathroom? Yes, it's tucked in the back of his office on the second floor at Rams Park. The bathroom has the usual amenities, including a shower, a lavatory and toiletries. But last season Spagnuolo added a single bed. And when the coach stays late at the office, reviewing video, he tries to sleep in the bathroom for a few hours to save time and make a quick pivot back to work in the morning. Not that a 1-15 rookie coach can sleep peacefully.

Coach has a time management problem that working 24/7 will not correct. No matter the venue, spending inordinate time at virtually all things is anything other than a success trait. Among many issues, creativity drops geometrically in these situations.

Go home Coach and enjoy life before yours terminates prematurely.

you mean the one whose season went down the toilet last year?

Not much there that can be fixed without a few more drafts and productive free agency signing periods. But you gotta admire the man's refusal to accept impending defeat.

The Rams have only one direction to go...

As far as the Bathroom goes - he better hope one of the O-Line guys don't come in and lay one down while he's sleeping.

Really? Surely there is something else to report besides a coach sleeping in a bathroom...

WTF??? Did he ever hear of putting a couch in his office?

September 10, 2010  02:31 PM ET

With a team like that you gotta hide somewhere.

Maybe he just likes cruising men's restrooms. Maybe he was one of Larry Craig's senatorial aides back in the day.

Damn! Low blow!!!

Maybe if you go 8-8 thus season they'll put that sofa in your office. Make the playoff you get a butler. Super bowl and you get an intern, wink wink.

This could well be one of the most useless threads ever on this site.

Sounds like Spagnuolo has weak bowls or bladder...

"he tries to sleep in the bathroom for a few hours to save time"
T.M.I. (To Much Information) Hope the Rams Game Plan allows for "Poddie-Breaks"
