Found October 02, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:
PLAYERS: Greg Zuerlein
TEAMS: St. Louis Rams
Per SI.com Rams rookie Greg Zuerlein is the first player in NFL history with two field goals of at least 58 yards in the same game. Discovered at small-school Missouri Western State, Zuerlein is perfect on 12 field-goal attempts this season. His big leg has earned him the nickname “Legatron” to go with “Greg the Leg” and “Young G.Z.” He was the best kicker coming out in NFL Draft this year, and although he might only be getting love from me at NFLDraftZone, he is an amazing kicker. In 10 years he will be known as the best kicker in the league.  Remember I said it here first, Greg the Leg is an animal and is worth a fantasy pick up.

St. Louis Rams get no respect, time to open your eyes

Entering the 2012 season, the St. Louis Rams looked only to start the rebuilding of a team that went 2-14 in 2011.  They started at the top with replacing General Manager Billy Devaney, and replaced him with the Atlanta Falcons Head of Player Personnel Director Les Snead.  Snead immediately looked for a Head Coach and was able to lure long time Tennessee Titan Head Coach Jeff Fisher...

Seattle Seahawks vs. St. Louis Rams: Week 4 Recap

As I predicted, the Rams did beat the Seahawks. It was a tough game, but the Rams were able to pull through and win 19-13. It was a close game that couldn't have got much closer. Many of the points scored were from field goals by the rookie kicker Greg Zuerlein. Zuerlein had four field goals including a 60-yard field goal. If you haven't learned how to spell "Zuerlein...

Rams will deal with strange week by winning

Apologies from the start if these sentences are as slow as Quinn Ojinnaka. Like the St. Louis Rams, this space has coped with the whiplash of two games in five days. One fowl foe lifted off Sunday, and a bird of a different NFC West feather will land at the Edward Jones Dome on Thursday. It's enough to make Gregg Williams crack open another cold one from his suite. Let'...

Rams adjusting to short workweek

The St. Louis Rams' adjustment to a short workweek has started pretty smoothly.

Rams 101 fantasy report week 4: Trending forward

Through a quarter of the young 2012 season, many NFL teams have either fulfilled or sabotaged the predictions of experts and fans alike. The New Orleans Saints are 0-4, while the Arizona Cardinals of the lowly NFC West are undefeated. 10 of the 32 NFL franchises currently sit at .500, and no franchise has made a clear case for Super Bowl contender. With the league's teams growing...

Week 4 Review - St. Louis Rams v. Seattle

  The 2012 St. Louis Rams are work in progress. They had their worst tackling game of the season, a good first half of rushing, a horrendous second half of rushing, and way too many 3rd and longs against a pass rushing defense. Yet, they won. They won this game on coaching. Jeff Fisher outcoached Pete Carol in many ways. Some of his play calls were better (ex. fake field...

Photo by Chantal Overton (@OhhMyOnlineNet). One quarter of the way through the 2012 season, the Rams are already ahead of schedule. We were supposed to be the young team that learned how to fight, but would have a hard time closing games and putting wins in the standings. We were supposed to be in the "rebuilding" year - an NFL euphemism for "acceptable...

Thursday Night Fantasy Football Pick-Up and Start

Face it, the Thursday Night games have been pretty boring this year, with few reasons to watch other than fantasy and gambling implications.
