The pending arrival of new Ravens safety Darian Stewart comes with a scouting report. Stewart has built a reputation as a tough guy with a lot of pop and as a tackler who excels in run support. However, Stewart isn't known for making a ton of plays in pass coverage despite his above-average speed. "Good safety, good player," said retired former St. Louis Rams defensive tackle D'Marco Farr, an analyst for the organization's broadcasting team. "Good, smart, instinctive guy, underrated hitter.

“Black Monday” in the NFL is the day after the end of the regular season when teams begin to question whether the coach they have is the right one for the future. Two franchises, the St. Louis Rams and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, decided to fire their coaches in Steve Spagnuolo and Raheem Morris, respectively. That means that five teams - the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Kansas City Chiefs, the Miami Dolphins, the Rams and the Buccaneers - will be searching for new coaches in the offseason.

In the months after the read-option took the NFL by storm, defensive coaches around the league became hell-bent on eradicating it, hoping to make the read-option go the way of the Wildcat and other near-extinct schemes. Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin called it "the flavor of the day" and wondered how long coaches would be willing to expose their quarterbacks in the open field. Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano, the Ravens' former defensive coordinator, was confident that defensive coaches would figure out how to stop the read-option during the offseason.

As my fine Baltimore Sun colleague and gameday chat partner Kevin Van Valkenburg wrote in a feature for Sunday's newspaper, Ravens coach John Harbaugh is close friends with Steve Spagnuolo . But the Rams coach admitted to The St. Louis Post-Dispatch that in the heat of the moment after the Ravens ran up the score on his Rams in Sunday's 37-7 win, Spagnuolo questioned whether he would speak with Harbaugh again .

St. Louis Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said he has accepted the NFL's decision to send a memo to all 32 teams warning of sanctions if the league can prove that players faked injuries during games. The memo - a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press Wednesday - reminded the team that coaches are supposed to discourage the practice and warned that fines, suspensions and loss of draft picks could be assessed. The memo came two days after it appeared that at least two New York Giants players faked injuries against the Rams during Monday night's game to halt the offense's no-huddle approach.

That little post-game meeting Monday at MetLife Stadium between Rams owner Stan Kroenke and head coach Steve Spagnuolo has been wildly and widely misinterpreted. More than anything, Kroenke was oblivious to NFL protocol. Head coaches are obligated by the league to take media questions after a brief cooling-off period. After the Rams' 28-16 loss to the New York Giants, Kroenke intercepted Spagnuolo before the coach could meet the press. It isn't uncommon for Kroenke or any NFL owner to visit with coaches after the game.

It's hard to find a quiet moment when you're a head coach in the NFL. Your time, especially during the season, feels scripted, almost down to the minute. There are meetings and phone calls to conduct, practices and drills to oversee, video to analyze and egos to assuage. If you're a details man, there are hourly fires to put out, and if your fan base is restless, the tension can feel suffocating. When John Harbaugh and Steve Spagnuolo take the field for Sunday's game between the Baltimore Ravens and St. Louis Rams, it will represent the culmination of a frantic and stressful week.

Trend sets that tone Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune It is possible teams will follow the Jaguars' lead and start their offseason housecleaning during the season. It used to be that NFL teams waited until the season ended to do their dirty work. But it seems a trend has begun. Last year four teams fired their coaches before the season ended, as Brad Childress, Josh McDaniels, Wade Phillips and Mike Singletary bit the dust early. People in the know would put the over/under at eight for coaching changes during and shortly after the season.
