St. Louis Rams Resurgence a Reflection of Jeff Fisher
November 25th, 2013 at 9:57 AM
It looked like the St. Louis Rams were done. The month of November started with a home loss to the Tennessee Titans, the third straight for the Rams. Their record stood at 3-6, and with the playoff contending Colts and Bears coming up and Sam Bradford gone for the season,...

St. Louis Rams Enjoy Practicing in the Wet Weather
August 13th, 2013 at 8:56 AM
After a day off on Sunday, the St. Louis Rams were back on the (soggy) practice field Monday. Typical Missouri summer weather was in effect earlier in the day, with thundershowers threatening to move practice indoors. But, other than some sprinkles during the practice period (eliciting joyous hoots and hollers...

St. Louis Rams Defense Relishes First Day in Pads
July 30th, 2013 at 7:30 AM
***PHOTO1*** Judging the progress of offenses and defenses going against each other in training camp is always difficult. If one unit stands out, it's always at the cost of the other. So, naturally the question after Monday's first practice in pads is this: Is the St. Louis Rams' defense that good,...

St. Louis Rams Kick Off Training Camp on a Positive Note
July 26th, 2013 at 8:00 AM
***PHOTO1*** Yesterday's start to the St. Louis Rams' training camp had a decidedly different feel to it than in previous years. It would appear that in Jeff Fisher's second year, his identity is beginning to take hold. The Rams worked briskly and effectively on Thursday. It's the start of camp, so the...

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...

Rams 101 Closer Look – Second-Round Selections Quick, Pead Remain Behind Curtain
October 18th, 2012 at 5:15 PM
Michael Brockers. Brian Quick. Isaiah Pead. Everyone tuned in to the 2012 NFL Draft heard these names called on behalf of the St. Louis Rams in late April, but we haven't heard them much since. Why? Let's take a closer look. (more...)

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 101 Fantasy Report, Week 4: Trending Forward
October 3rd, 2012 at 5:00 AM
Through a quarter of the young 2012 season, many NFL teams have either fulfilled or sabotaged the predictions of experts and fans alike. The New Orleans Saints are 0-4, while the Arizona Cardinals of the lowly NFC West are undefeated. 10 of the 32 NFL franchises currently sit at .500, and...

St. Louis Rams’ Notebook, Week 4 – Winning Ugly is Still Winning
October 2nd, 2012 at 12:28 AM
The St. Louis Rams currently sit at 2-2, only good enough for third place in the surprisingly-good NFC West. Despite the offensively-challenged performances the Rams have displayed through the quarter-pole of the 2012 season, the two wins have already matched their total for last season. A .500 record is promising...

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...

Fantasy Football Projections: St. Louis Rams’ Defense
September 4th, 2012 at 1:57 PM
***PHOTO3*** From previous experience, defenses aren't always a reliable fantasy bet at the beginning of an NFL season. Outside of the Pittsburg Steelers, Baltimore Ravens and the revolving door that is the NFC East, no team has had a top-10 defense each year since the turn of the millennium. For this reason...

St. Louis Rams’ Notebook – Preseason Wrap-up: Improvement on the Horizon
September 1st, 2012 at 2:56 PM
***PHOTO1*** GAME NOTES —Michael Brockers went down with a lower leg injury on the last play of the first quarter against the Baltimore Ravens. Brockers was caught in a ‘high-low’ block on a stretch play. The injury has since been diagnosed as a high ankle sprain, and will sideline the rookie defensive...

***PHOTO1*** The St. Louis Rams rebounded from an abysmal showing last week, defeating the Kansas City Chiefs 31-17 at the Edward Jones Dome on Saturday night to win the Governor's Cup. The Rams hold the all-time series lead 14-8. After falling to the Indianapolis Colts 38-3 in their 2012-2013 preseason debut, the...

St. Louis Rams Ink Chris Long to Extension
July 30th, 2012 at 8:22 PM
The St. Louis Rams have been in a giving mood lately. The latest recipient is defensive end Chris Long, who signed a four-year extension with the club to maintain a consistent presence off the edge. Long, 27, is just beginning to hit his stride in the NFL after improving his sack...

St. Louis Rams Round up 2012 NFL Draft Picks
June 15th, 2012 at 8:48 PM
The St. Louis Rams have signed eight of their 10 draft picks from April. Thanks to a clause in the NFL’s new collective bargaining agreement, rookies have a ceiling on how much they can make coming out of college, and they actually have to earn their stripes on the NFL gridiron....
