|Rams Coach Not Satisfied After First Win
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- As Steven Jackson rambled into the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown with 1:38 to go, St. Louis Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo felt no sense of elation.
Here's what was on the rookie head coach's mind: "I hope we didn't score too soon.'
Can't blame the guy for being skittish, considering how long the Rams (1-7) waited between wins. The franchise dropped 17 in a row before Sunday's 17-10 victory over the one-win Lions, who are every bit as downtrodden.
Spagnuolo didn't even relax much on Monday, revealing a bye week practice schedule that allows the team to keep working mostly in private. The Rams will practice Tuesday and Wednesday before players get the rest of the week off.
Spagnuolo is already worried about the Saints, potential double-digit favorites in St. Louis on November 8th.
