It takes a special kind of coach to be undermined and humilated while sitting at home, and ladies and gentlemen, Mike Martz (of course) is that coach. According to The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Martz tried to call in a play from his house to the Rams coaching booth yesterday, and the Rams brass refused to even allow his messenger to be let in.
Martz had been trying to call over the phone before finally sending a messenger to the booth. But they wouldn't unlock the door. Which, you know, is totally going to be good for his heart; honestly, they should have just blacked out the game at the Martz home.
You know what's funny, too? Martz ran out of timeouts halfway through the first bag of Doritos. That'll happen.
