Haslett making changes in St. Louis

If nothing else, Rams coach Jim Haslett has tried to overhaul the previously existing culture in St. Louis. Over the past two weeks, Haslett has individually met with approximately 400 Rams employees, everyone from each of the players, to each of the assistant coaches, to the marketing department, the ticketing department and anyone working for the organization.

He wanted each person to feel welcome and to know that his or her job was important.

Those were just the start of the changes that Haslett began implementing. On the field, he plans to try to get the football more to running back Steven Jackson, wide receiver Donnie Avery and especially wide receiver Torry Holt.

In fact, for the first time in his career, Holt will be used at other positions other than the “X” receiver spot that he has mastered. The Rams plan to use Holt at the “Y”, flanker, all across the field in an effort to get him the ball more often.

These are all part of the different ideas Haslett has brought as he attempts to turn around the franchise.
