NFL Week 10 Pick’em: What in the World is Going on Here?
November 7th, 2013 at 10:02 AM
This NFL season has been topsy-turvy so far, making picking games each week a treacherous task. Last week, Betsy correctly foresaw the Jets and the Browns pulling off home upsets (her dart board was on the money!). Nevertheless, we all finished last week at 7-6, keeping the standings at the...

Indianapolis Colts Following St. Louis Rams Script for Rebuilding
November 6th, 2013 at 9:16 AM
The roles were supposed to be reversed. The St. Louis Rams had written the script for rebuilding a Super Bowl caliber team: Draft the franchise quarterback, hire a defensive-minded head coach and retool the roster with speed and youth. They even had a head start on the Colts. While Indianapolis...

October 16th, 2013 at 7:30 AM
When Cam Newton came out of Auburn as the number one pick in the 2011 NFL draft, he helped usher in a new breed of NFL quarterback. The Carolina Panthers selected him and placed the hopes of their franchise on his back. To this point, Carolina hasn't seen much of...

Sunday's matchup between the St. Louis Rams and the Jacksonville Jaguars matches two of the teams most rumored to be candidates for relocation to the now vacant Los Angeles market. Along with San Diego and Oakland, the Rams or the Jags, given their current stadium issues and ownership, could be...

St. Louis Rams Struggle Out of the Gate in Dallas
September 22nd, 2013 at 8:41 PM
After mounting an impressive comeback in week 1 versus Arizona, and almost pulling off a comeback upset during week 2 in Atlanta, the Rams appeared to be earning a reputation as a "down to the wire", "cardiac" or second half team.  Heading into Dallas for week 3, the Rams were...

St. Louis Rams Trim Roster with Few Surprises
August 31st, 2013 at 11:52 AM
The St. Louis Rams unofficially began the process of cutting the roster from 75 players (as of yesterday morning) to the league enforced maximum of 53.  This is certainly one of the worst days in the NFL calendar for many of the players, their families and team staffs, as players...

St. Louis Rams’ Notebook, Week 7 – Entering Rougher Waters
October 23rd, 2012 at 3:49 PM
Forgive me for sounding like the eternal optimist, but the St. Louis Rams are just fine. They've already exceeded their win total from an abysmal 2011 campaign. On eye test alone, the defense looks like a completely different beast than any Rams team since the franchise arrived in St. Louis. In...

St. Louis Rams Continue to Improve in 30-20 Loss
October 21st, 2012 at 4:45 PM
A lot of football heads apply the term “garbage time” to a team that finds any offensive success while attempting to come back from a deficit of two touchdowns or more late in the fourth quarter. The St. Louis Rams found success in garbage time, as Sam Bradford found an...

St. Louis Rams’ Notebook, Week 6 – Holding Steady
October 17th, 2012 at 10:41 AM
To the casual football fan, the St. Louis Rams didn't look too much like the lesser team in Sunday's loss to the Miami Dolphins. Sure, both teams currently sit at 3-3 following the game but so do 10 other NFL franchises, including the entire AFC East. The game didn't get nationally televised thanks to the...

St. Louis Rams See Red in 17-14 Loss
October 15th, 2012 at 8:50 PM
The St. Louis Rams had three trips into the red zone Sunday afternoon in Miami but only cashed in with one touchdown, an abysmal rate of 33 percent. For this reason alone, the Rams are 3-3 instead of 4-2 following a 17-14 defeat at the hands of the Miami Dolphins. Well,...

St. Louis Rams Look Special in 19-13 Victory Over Seattle Seahawks
October 1st, 2012 at 3:21 AM
There are three phases to every football game: offense, defense and special teams. Often overlooked in the shuffle of competition is the importance of the latter phase, a phase that sees second- and third-string players who fought for roster spots in training camp take the field. On this particular afternoon, the...

St. Louis Rams’ Notebook – Week 3: Weak Links Better Identified
September 26th, 2012 at 1:13 AM
Although controversial calls — or, in some instances, the lack thereof — have certainly marred the first three weeks of the NFL season, an objective look at each team's performance will show that this is probably the most competitive season the league has had in a while. No one could have...

September 23rd, 2012 at 4:55 PM
After a promising win against the upstart Washington Redskins last week, and an equally solid effort on the road in the first half, the St. Louis Rams crashed back to reality Sunday. The Rams (1-2) ran into a hungry Chicago Bears (2-1) team on the road, losing 23-6 at Soldier...

September 16th, 2012 at 9:43 PM
In a battle of Heisman-trophy winning quarterbacks, the home team prevailed Sunday as the St. Louis Rams escaped with a 31-28 win over the visiting Washington Redskins. When it came to clutch plays, Washington rookie phenom Robert Griffin III showed poise and grit, even jawing with opposing defenders. However, Sam Bradford...

September 9th, 2012 at 10:05 PM
***PHOTO1*** The St. Louis Rams looked to shock the NFL on Sunday with an upset on the road against a 2011 playoff team in the Detroit Lions. The shock was there, but the finish was not as the Rams lost a 27-23 thriller at Ford Field. St. Louis' defense played exceptionally well...
