Fisher factor persuasive in free agent signings

When Jeff Fisher took the Tennessee Titans to the Super Bowl in 1999, Scott Wells was a Nashville high school player. Wells was a Fisher fan then, and during eight NFL seasons the respect has grown. The new Rams new coach was a big enough draw in free agency that the Pro Bowl center left […]

Do Rams Really Want Gregg Williams?

Gregg Williams’ expected departure from New Orleans to become the St. Louis Rams’ defensive coordinator should caution Rams fans. Williams is well known for coming after opposing quarterbacks without caution. The New Orleans Saints brough five or more pass-rushers 51.1 percent of the time in 2011, leading the NFL. The percentage was also an NFL […]

What Should The Rams Do With Top Pick

For the sake of argument let us assume that fate shines on the Rams this Sunday in their game against the San Francisco 49ers. Granted a loss here should not be difficult to come by with the 49ers still battling for the overall number two seed in the NFC. But to be on the safe […]

The Protection Or The Playmaker

This week’s great debate, chicken and egg style. Which comes first, the protection or the playmaker? Does a great OT make the QB and WR combo or does the Play-maker at WR make the QB and tackle look better. It’s an age old question. And with USC OT Matt Kalil declaring for the draft an […]

Steven Jackson’s Lost Years

The Rams-Seahawks Monday Night Football battle reminded me of two beliefs I have come to accept with this Rams team. 1: The Rams are really, really bad. And not bad like a play or two away from winning a game. No bad like all-time reference type bad. 2: The Rams are downright wasting Steven Jackson. […]

Naughty & Nice

We know he watches the games. We have seen him parachute in to stadiums, decked out in Hawaiian shirts and lays, we have even seen him pelted with snow balls from as hostile a group as there is. Who am I talking about? Well Santa of course. Like he does around the world every year […]
