Steve Spagnuolo won't speculate on his future with Rams

Pressure is mounting in St. Louis for Steve Spagnuolo as the Rams continue to struggle.

Expected by many to compete for the NFC West title are 2-8 and 10-32 under Spagnuolo, who took over in 2009. As Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch pointed out, the schedule is daunting the rest of the way. Four of the final six opponents are playoff contenders and they have a combined record of 38-22.

The question is real simple: Do the Rams need to find a spark down the stretch to secure Spagnuolo’s future into 2012?

"I don't go there only because I don't do the six-week deal," Spagnuolo said, per the report. "I don't go that far into the future. It's just this game. I just know that's how you operate in this business. The good Lord takes care of the rest.

"I'm going to trust in the leadership of the team and the players, and the fact that they love the game of football and love being a part of this organization. That they're professionals — coaches and players — and that it is about representing the organization and this city and our fans. I think everybody understands that we're here in this business to put together a game plan and an effort by players to win football games. That's what we'll try to do this week."

What no one knows is what owner Stan Kroenke is thinking. He took over full control of the franchise during the offseason and may want to make a move, especially if he doesn’t see the kind of growth he desires.
