20th Century Fox has acquired the life rights to develop a feature based on the life of Kurt Warner. Warner famously went from stocking groceries in Iowa to winning 2 MVPs and a Super Bowl with the St Louis Rams.
“For so long people have told me my life story would make a great movie. I am humbled and thrilled to have found a team as excited as I am to make that happen.”
I am honestly surprised it took this long. It should be a pretty interesting movie and I am interested see if they release this movie in 2015 when Warner is up for the Hall of Fame.

ST. LOUIS -- Maybe they were tired of being overlooked.
Since the start of training camp, the St. Louis Rams defense has heard the crowd gathered at Rams Park ooh and aah every time quarterback Sam Bradford finds a receiver.

But it's clear...
St. Louis badly needs a healthy Scott Wells to anchor their offensive line after an injury plagued 2012 season.
Scott was a free agent acquisition in 2011 and was added to solidify the team’s offensive line.
He signed a four-year, $24-million contract after playing 8 years for the Green Bay Packers.
The experience of playing in the sophisticated Packers offense was to transfer...
ST. LOUIS -- The Rams are mixing modern social media with the oldest joke in the book. Some might call it a 'pie in the face' but certain members of the St. Louis defense prefer 'Smack Cam.' The rules seem simple enough. First, find a target. Next, drill them in the face with a plate full of whipped cream.
Cornerback Trumaine Johnson has developed a series of smack...
Growing up Tavon Austin’s favorite pickup game was something called “throw up tackle.’’
“It’s everybody for themselves” Austin explained. “Whoever gets the ball you run against everybody and if you get tackled throw it up and next person tries.”
Quickness elusiveness determination instincts and instant reaction all were necessary to succeed. Which may explain why...
ST. LOUIS (AP) Minus the two-a-days, the IV drips, the soft tissue muscle pulls and the fatigue, Chris Long has actually become a fan of training camp.
The leader of the St. Louis Rams' pass rush, and their seniority leader heading into his sixth season, does not miss the summer grind that was eliminated with the new collective bargaining agreement. The defensive end relishes...
ST. LOUIS -- Will Witherspoon remembers.
He was 22, a Carolina Panthers third-round draft pick out of Georgia, a rookie linebacker still learning the ropes. Then, everything changed.
"About midway through the season, Dan Morgan dislocated his shoulder," Witherspoon said Monday. "I remember Jack Del Rio in our Monday meeting saying, 'Hey Spoon, get ready to play...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By R.B. FALLSTROM AP Sports Writer Minus the two-a-days, the IV drips, the soft tissue muscle pulls and the fatigue, Chris Long has actually become a fan of training camp.

(via TurnersTwist.com) In about 8 days (August 8th at 7PM CDT) the St. Louis Rams will begin their preseason schedule against the Cleveland Browns. There are people who do not like watching preseason games.
I am not one of them.
I enjoy the opportunity to see fourth and fifth string players get touches. I also use this time to scout out fantasy players for the upcoming year. Which...

ST. LOUIS -- When Rams receiver Austin Pettis was called into the coach's office and informed he had made first team on the depth chart, he did not jump with joy, scream with delight or give Jeff Fisher a mighty hug.
"I've been here the longest, know the system and had been working hard," Pettis says.
As pleased as he was, he got it. He understood the promotion...

Rodger Saffold was the St. Louis Rams' left tackle his first three NFL seasons, wearing his boyhood idol Orlando Pace's No. 76 jersey and leading the protection for Sam Bradford.
He's had several months to handle the reality that it is no longer his position.
''I mean, it's a business,'' Saffold said. ''I enjoy the left tackle position but...
The recent years have been frustrating ones for the fans of the Arizona Cardinals. After Kurt Warner retired it has been one frustrating season after another. Heck, it's darn near enough to drive a fan to drink, but as bad as the team has played that would have resulted in a lot of angry drunks.
The product on the field appears to be changing though. With the arrival of new...
