NEW YORK (AP) Comments on the St. Louis Rams by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
Chris Berman (ESPN, 24) - A week off to seriously regroup.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 27) - Riding a three-game losing streak, we'll see if a bye in Week 9 helped.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 27)
Rich Gannon (CBS SportsSiriusXM NFL Radio, 30) - Not optimistic about Rams chances vs 49ers.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 28) - Rams had a bye week to think about a blowout loss to the Patriots in London. Now it's off for some NFC West-style punishment in San Francisco.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 26) - The 3-5 Rams are starting to turn it around under new coach Jeff Fisher. But St. Louis needs more from QB San Bradford, who has thrown one TD pass or fewer in six of his eight games.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 22) - Good news, Rams fans: Only five months to the start of baseball season.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 25) - Winless on the road heading into Candlestick Park.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL RadioCBSSports.com, 29) - Jeff Fisher is turning things around, but it is going to take time. Getting Danny Amendola back is very important. Since 2010 when Amendola plays the Rams are 10-12.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 26) - The Rams were "bloody" whipped by Sir Tom and the Pats across the pond. They rested in their bye week and here come the 49ers.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 27) - If the Rams are going to make a playoff run, the time is now. Three of the next four games are against NFC West foes starting Sunday with the first of two matchups against NFC West-leading San Francisco.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 23) - Five of their last eight are on the road, and so far the Rams are 0-4 in games played outside St. Louis.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Rodger Saffold was pleased to be part of the St. Louis Rams' traveling party to London - until the game began.
"I was like so happy that Coach (Jeff Fisher) let me come even though I was injured," Saffold said Wednesday. "And then afterward I'm like Why did he do this?' Standing out there on that field in the rain."
After a four-day bye weekend, it was back to work for the Rams on Tuesday - an "extra" practice day as they prepare for Sunday's game at San Francisco.
Left tackle Rodger Saffold, seeking to return to action after suffering a knee injury in Week 2 against Washington, said he took part in "team" drills for the first time, felt great after practice, and said...
The St. Louis Rams are close to getting center Scott Wells back from a fractured left foot that has sidelined him since the season opener.
Wells returned to practice for the first time on Tuesday and while he could be promoted to the 53-man roster in time for Sundays game against the San Francisco 49ers, the Rams could choose to give him a little more time, according to Jim Thomas...

ST. LOUIS It has become the beast in the basement. It's too large to ignore, too heavy to show the door.
Got a convention hall? The St. Louis Rams could use a place to put their elephant in the room.
There's no other way to say it: The Rams struggle to find the end zone. Touchdowns have been as easy as root canals for this group of late, and the competition won't...

With the election tomorrow, Chris Berman interviews President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney, which aired during halftime of MNF. Although neither candidate really said anything too political or revealing to their cause, each had interesting things to say concerning the world of sports, in particular, the NFL.
It’s well-known that Obama is a Chicago Bears fan, and...

Will Craig James keep his place as the incumbent who won in a landslide vote last summer and etch his place in AA immortality? Or, will another deserving candidate...

I’ve said before that sports gaffes are the absolute last thing you should judge a political candidate on. Sports team allegiance, however, that’s totally an understandable reason to distrust someone. And Mitt Romney likes the Patriots, which makes sense for someone who is both a former governor of Massachusetts and the whitest man on the planet.
Romney might also not know how...
