08:08 AM ET 03.06 | While Sean Payton's job is reportedly safe, there are questions about the central figure in Bounty-gate. The Rams obviously had nothing to do with any "bounty rules" violations in New Orleans or elsewhere. Nonetheless, it now seems inevitable they will suffer collateral damage as a result of Gregg Williams' wrongdoing. In the wake of new allegations of bounty-type systems while Williams was on staffs in Washington, Buffalo, and the Houston- Tennessee Titans, a suspension -- perhaps a lengthy one -- appears likely. There has even been some speculation that Williams' job could be in jeopardy. Williams was scheduled to meet with the NFL's security department and other league officials Monday in New York.

Sacrificing a ram on the alter to appease an angry God is a long-standing tradition.

A lifetime ban is not out of the question here. And firing him for cause would be a stand-up move by the Rams, too.

Your historical and biblical references have reached a new height.

And yet, no amount of theological study, neither Bible nor Koran, no Talmudic scholarship either, can prepare one to explain the mysteries of the Reserve Quarterback Rule.

I thought the HEAD COACH was ultimately responsible for everything---- not with the Saints. Sean Peyton must have had his head buried in the craw-dad's all these years.... the NFL will never learn!

Or... Quarterback rating.

Altar, an alter is what we have on here, just saying ;-)

This guy is not being sacrificed...he is being thrown to the wolves.

The difference between A and E is important. Peyton Manning may get cut. Peyton Hillis may be insane but Sean Payton appears to be the golden child on whom no poop will stick

This Guy should be banned from football, but he won't, but he puts at risk any player both offense and defense on any team that he coaches from this time on. Not only has his value deminished but that kind of thinking can only hurt the team that you coach for, what an imbersil!

LOL! nice............ but seriously, I can't see how the Rams would keep him on, given the gravity of these accusations....

Talk about overstating the obvious. Just when Jeff Fisher thought he had found his soulmate, they may have to part ways. Sniffle, Sniffle.

How about the tuck rule? I'm still scratching my head on that one.

They are certainly not going to be given one...

And I still think it's going to be a year for Mr. Williams.

Until a certain playoff game I never knew the rule existed.
