Rams | Martz not Happy about Being Stopped from Play Call

The Associated Press reports St. Louis Rams head coach Mike Martz harshly criticized team management and said he didn't know if he could coexist with the team's president of football operations. Jay Zygmunt stopped a representative for Martz at the door of the coaches' booth during Sunday's game, Oct. 23, against the New Orleans Saints. The representative, team director of security Dan Linza, had been trying to bring a cell phone to offensive coordinator Steve Fairchild so Martz could talk to him from his home. Zygmunt then brought Linza to team president John Shaw, who decided against having an "open phone line" in the booth. Martz said he wasn't trying to interfere, just to help a young coach. Martz admitted the impasse might be partly his fault, too, the result of strong wills clashing.
