Making the Grade: Rams vs Chiefs

Lance Kendricks and the Rams receivers scored well this week – as did the rest of the team. Quarterbacks: A- Sam Bradford was flawless on the first two drives.  Flawless is not my opinion, it is fact.  8-8 for 76 yards. By the end of the second drive, he had a couple of key third […]

Quick thoughts: Mardy Gilyard and the changing role of special teams

Some quick thoughts as I prepare to brave the heat and/or rain for the Rams’ last open practice of the season, at 12:30 today.  Mardy Gilyard has been getting every chance to prove he belongs on this team, but his primary showcase is the now-outmoded kickoff return. Nearly 75% of kickoffs have landed in the […]

Rams rookie report: Preseason Week 2

As football games go, the Rams’ 17-16 win over the Titans was like a cheap burrito. Sounds satisfying, but if you look inside you’ll find a lot of questionable stuff.

Rounding up the Herd: Preseason Week 1 Edition

It has been a month of firsts. First practice, first scrimmage and finally the first preseason game.

Rams-Titans injury updates: A mismatch emerges

Steven Jackson has put in more work signing autographs than carrying the rock on gamedays so far in Rams camp. That may change this weekend.
