ST. LOUIS -- This is a reality of the new normal.
During the Steve Spagnuolo era, a trip-over-your-shoelaces effort like the one seen in the Minnesota Vikings' rout Sunday may have been excused. It may have been brushed aside as another stink bomb within a foul chapter worth forgetting. But this St. Louis Rams season has been about trying to take an aerosol can to the past. It should include taller expectations.
Pick from many undesirables in a 36-22 loss at the Edward Jones Dome that left the hosts thinking, "What's next?" The Rams, playing to keep hopes alive for their first playoff berth since the 2004 season, allowed 23 second-quarter points before digging a 30-7 halftime hole. A foe that entered 1-5 on the road rubbed mud on a navy-and-gold welcome mat, kicked down the front door and muzzled most of the 55,751 in attendance on what was supposed to be Fan Appreciation Day. Meanwhile, all-world Vikings running back Adrian Peterson ran for a season-high 212 y...
BEST OF MAXIM
We all remember Danny Amendola throwing a tirade (and his helmet) after breaking his collarbone earlier in the season.
Now healthy, the Rams receiver has resumed launching projectiles.
During Sunday's game against the Vikings, Amendola reeled in a touchdown reception and proceeded to do his best Rob Gronkowski impression, spiking the football.
Unfortunately for one helpless...
St. Louis Rams receiver Danny Amendola spiked a football into a man's face, and appeared to break the man's glasses, after scoring a touchdown in the fourth quarter of Sunday's NFL game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Amendola may want to plan his touchdown celebrations better in the future. Not only does he owe this man a new pair of glasses, but the Rams were down...
ST. LOUIS Another season will end for Steven Jackson and the Rams in two weeks. And for the eighth straight year, it wont include a trip to the playoffs.
Ahead in the next few months will be a fascinating storyline to watch unfold as Jackson decides whether or not to opt out of his contract and become a free agent.
The options are quite simple: Jackson could take the 7 million...
During yesterday’s Rams – Vikings game, St. Louis wide receiver Danny Amendola scored a touchdown and spiked the ball in the back of the end zone while celebrating. Unfortunately the ball hit an older gentleman in the head and apparently broke his glasses.
Hopefully the man learned that he will need to move back from the end line next time.

Pow! Right in the kisser!
Rams receiver Danny Amendola caught one of QB Sam Bradford’s three touchdown passes in St. Louis’ 36-22 home loss to the Vikings. While Amendola’s TD reception was somewhat a thing of beauty, his spikes need a bit of work, as his celebratory spike of the football bounces off the turf and nails a stadium usher right in the head.
Judging by the poor...
The St. Louis Rams are expecting to be
without offensive lineman Harvey Dahl for the remainder of the season after he
suffered what’s believed to be a torn biceps late in last weekend’s contest
against the Minnesota Vikings, reports Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Right guard Harvey Dahl suffered what the Rams suspect is a
torn biceps late in the game and almost...
As we have previously noted on this fair website, if you happen to be near an NFL sideline...you have to keep your wits about you.
After a touchdown reception by St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola, one Rams usher took his eyes away from the ball.
Watch as Amendola's spike takes away his glasses in one fail swoop:

AA gets the official heads-up on this one...
The Rams were trying to come back in their game with Minnesota where:
1) Adrian Peterson was running like he had a plane to catch and,
2) Blair Walsh was getting the HQ a LOT of fantasy points
But part of the game showed just how dangerous celebrations could be...
Danny Amendola scored...
We have seen some weird things happen this year in the NFL. From controversial calls by the replacement refs (and regular refs) and the sprinklers going off during the Dolphins game. Now we have this. Danny Amendola celebrates a touchdown with a traditional spike, but it gets to close to comfort for an usher who gets nailed right in the face as the football bounces up off the ground...
The St. Louis Rams are looking at another season without a postseason appearance.
Winners of three straight games before a 36-22 loss Sunday to Minnesota, the Rams had a chance of making the playoffs if they won their final three games. Now, the final two games serve mostly as a tuneup for next season.
