08:02 AM ET 12.13 | This hasn't been a great week for the NFL's fraternity of coaches, and a Monday night loss has the spotlight now shining on Steve Spagnuolo and Josh McDaniels in St. Louis. With quarterback Sam Bradford playing on a gimpy left ankle and unable to consistently step into his throws, it was a challenge for the Rams to reach the end zone. ... [In a] failed goal-line situation, the bizarre McDaniels called for Bradford to run a naked bootleg. It was an instant disaster that ended with Bradford getting pummeled, slammed to the ground and flagged for intentional grounding. Calling a bootleg for a quarterback who's gimping around on high ankle sprain? Put Bradford at risk instead of giving the rock to Jackson? This is really awful coaching, folks.

When you do what you always did, you get what you always got.

When will owners begin to understand this simple concept? Recycling is for empty beer cans, not for coaches.

McDaniels should think about life about football.

after* not about. Need more coffee.

So who's going to drag Brian Billick back into coaching?

Spags would make another team happy as their DC.....

McDaniels will make some financial services company happy as a junk bond salesman. If he could sell himself to NFL teams as long as he did he can sell anything.

Spags needs to come back to Big Blue!

That would be a good idea for both parties.

I don't think I have ever seen a roster so bereft of talent like the Rams.

One year removed from Spy-Gate 2.0 and a few Tebow wins, you're exactly right....

Watch him end up as a Head Coach in Jacksonville.

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised to see him in KC. I believe he's on good terms with Pioli and he sure worked wonders with Cassel in 2008.
