Found October 15, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:
PLAYERS: Greg Zuerlein
TEAMS: St. Louis Rams
Rams K Greg Zuerlein missed three field goals in Sunday’s Week 6 loss to the Dolphins. Zuerlein missed from 52, 37 and 66 yards out. They are the first three misses of his NFL career. We wouldn’t worry too much about Legatron’s off day, and the Rams’ inept red-zone offense should keep bringing him chances. Zuerlein trails only Lawrence Tynes in field-goal attempts this season. I don’t believe you need to worry because all kickers can have an off day, but this was huge this week. If Zuerlein hits those field goals they win the game. The Rams will go up next week against the Packers on Sunday. They will need “The Leg” to be back on his game if they want any chance to win.

Steven Jackson could be on his way out in Saint Louis

With the recent development of both Daryl Richardson and Isaiah Pead in Saint Louis, could Steven Jackson be on his way out?

St. Louis Rams see red in 17-14 loss

The St. Louis Rams had three trips into the red zone Sunday afternoon in Miami but only cashed in with one touchdown, an abysmal rate of 33 percent. For this reason alone, the Rams are 3-3 instead of 4-2 following a 17-14 defeat at the hands of the Miami Dolphins. Well, maybe not just that reason. St. Louis had many opportunities to make plays on all areas of the field, in all phases...

"Greg the Leg" Zuerlein comes back down to earth

While Felix Baumgartner was busy breaking the sound barrier with his jump from outer space, many St. Louis Rams fans felt that it would be just a matter of time before kicker Greg Zuerlein would break the record for longest field goal in NFL history. Zuerlein got an opportunity to do so in Sunday's 17-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins, but failed to crack the record books. In...

Steven Jackson Splits Time with Richardson

Rams running back Steven Jackson was healthy, but split time evenly with rookie Daryl Richardson.Fantasy Spin:This is not good news for Jackson's fantasy owners. Miami's defense was ranked No. 1 against the run heading into the game so not much was expected of Jackson, but this new strategy, if ongoing, is a shift that will significantly reduce Jackson's fantasy value.

Fisher: Second quarter doomed Rams in Miami

ST. LOUIS (AP) The St. Louis Rams finished with 462 yards at Miami. But they didn't get enough points with all that offense, made too many errors and now they're back at .500.
