Rams coach to miss rest of season

October 24, 2005
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St. Louis Rams coach Mike Martz will miss the rest of the season due to a bacterial infection of a heart valve that has already sidelined him for two games.

Martz told the team Monday that after being examined and evaluated by his treating physician, Dr. Victoria Fraser, that his illness will prevent him from performing his duties. Fraser is co-chief of the division of infectious diseases at Barnes-Jewish Hospital.

Martz, 54, has had what his doctors have termed an acute bacterial infection since the beginning of the season, and was admitted to a hospital on Sept. 30 for treatment. On Oct. 5, Martz announced that he had been sick for several weeks and that his condition prevented him from attending practice.

Five days later he was readmitted to a hospital.

The team said Joe Vitt would continue as head coach for the rest of the year. Vitt is the assistant head coach and linebackers coach. Vitt won his first game on Sunday, 28-17 over the New Orleans Saints.




I hope he gets better, and I hope they continue to run the ball.

Steven Jackson's value just skyrocketed.

As a jackson owner I hope you're right....but I don't know that it's got anywhere to go but down at this point. he's a top 5 back in my league as it stands, and I think he's solid and his production throughout the year should be fairly similar to what it has been the past weeks, but I doubt that his value can be any greater than it is already. But I hope I'm wrong!

well, if they could start getting him the ball 25-30 times a game instead of 15-20, who knows how good this kid could be. His max number of carries this year is at 20.

I saw someone on ESPN the other morning, commenting on Martz
and the Rams.

The quote was:
"Watching a Mike Martz coached team is like doing surgery on yourself.
It's real interesting.
But also painful".

I was just watching PTI and they said he tried to call in a play yesterday and the front office wouldn't let the play to be sent to the coaches.

Martz= Houstons next coach.

An injured Bulger, the league's easiest schedule (2004 record-wise), and a new head coach DEFINITELY means Jackson is a player to get yours hands on asap.

yeah, i agree...but two words come to mind. marshall faulk. he is still too good, and too effective not to have on the field in certain situations. jackson is really a nice back he's a bruiser with speed, and decent/good hands. but this is marshall faulk we're talking about. on his name alone he should figure in to the offense some...plus he still looks like he's got some speed. i really wish that jackson would be a 25 - 30 carry a game back, it would make my team incredible. ;-D
i just think that the overall picture in st. louis is not going to change much. they might run more now that martz is gone, but don't count on every one of those extra carries going to jackson. i think we'll see more faulk.
his max carries may be only 20, but his touch count was probably closer to 25 or so. at some point during the season he'll get to the 25-30 count....but I would not see it as a sustaining trend when it does occur.
like i said, I hope I'm wrong. I hope you guys are right. I want to make a lot of money from this kid this year! :-)

Jackson is a top 5 FF back right now. As a Jackson owner, I would almost rather him keep getting the carries he has been, stay a top 5 back and stay healthy.
