Billy Devaney: "Well, you know that halfway ticks me off because I was the one who scouted 'Stinky' when he was a little slappy coming out of Idaho and nobody even knew who he was. And now he's on the air pontificating like an expert. I'm going to have to have a talk with my man Schlereth and set him straight because we are not in shambles. We're 0-2, that's for sure, and nobody feels good about that whatsoever, but there is no doubt in anybody's mind over here that this thing is headed in the right direction. Like I said, I don't know how fast it's going to take before we get there. But I think we're well on our way to getting this thing righted.
Mike Greenberg: "True or false, Stink. The Rams are the worst team in the NFL."
Schlereth: "I'm going to say true. They are just not very good any way you look at it, all the way around on both sides of the ball. They're not getting it done, they're not competing. Steven Jackson is a supreme running back in this league. Seventeen carries last week for 100 yards. Everything is a shambles.
Burwell: "Now, to me, I think there is a distinctive difference when talking about the state of the current team and the state of the franchise. That sounded to me like he was simply talking about the state of this season. I don't know."
Billy Devaney: "Well, I'll be honest. I've got to take a deep breath because that really pisses me off. When he says something like we're not competing, how the hell does he know? I guarantee he hasn't watched either one of our games, so you can say we had a stinker in Seattle and we made a ton of mistakes and that is fine. There is no argument. But to say we're not competing is totally asinine. Whatever. We're 0-2, we gotta eat everything right now. That is fine. All we can do is just line up and play on Sunday and try to win some games and change peoples' minds about.
