Begging, borrowing, and stealing good ideas

On the job less than a month, new Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo, the former defensive coordinator for the Giants, has seen how responsibilities expand in his new role.

"I'm finding out quickly that there's a lot involved in being a head coach," Spagnuolo said. "To do it right, you've got to be in there all the time. There's so many elements — free agency, the college draft, schemes, learning the building, trying to meet everybody."

Regarding his philosophy and what he'll bring to his new team, Coach Spagnuolo says he won't reinvent the wheel.

"I certainly don't think we had all the answers in New York. You beg, borrow and steal. That's all you do in the league, you steal good ideas from other people."
