NFL Draft Zone:
Yesterday, Rams RCB Janoris Jenkins (back) did not participate in practice. No injury was disclosed after Sunday’s loss to the Dolphins, which is typical with Jeff Fisher-run teams. Well today I talked with someone close to the source who said Jenkins will be fine and ready this week versus the Packers. The second-round rookie and ex-Florida Gator started out red-hot with the rest of the St. Louis pass defense. The Rams will need Jenkins at a hundred percent to compete with the very ambitious Packers offense. Last week they went on a passing spree, which had Aaron Rodgers striking on 6 touchdown passes. Jenkins will probably line up against James Jones who has caught 2 touchdown passes a game for the past three games. Jones could be one of the only in the NFL to ever do it if he can get it done this week, but I think Jenkins will stand pat and not allow Jones to break it on him.
BEST OF MAXIM
The St. Louis Dispatch said today that Rams rookie WR Chris Givens has as many receptions of 50+ yards (3) the past three weeks as the entire team has had over the past three years.Givens was known in Wake Forest for his speed and hands. He is not the prettiest route runner in the world, but he gets the job done. Givens has had several injuries in the past, but he is on fire right...
In an interesting way to help his team prepare for its upcoming match-up with the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher had one of the members of the squad’s scout team wear a long, blonde wig to mimic the flowing locks of Packers standout linebacker Clay Matthews. That’s scout [...]
For the St. Louis Rams defense, one year makes a big difference. Just one season removed from having one of the worst defenses, particularly against the run, the Rams suddenly have one of the top defenses in the entire NFL.
The Rams are allowing just 18.5 points per game which is fifth best in the NFL and is a big reason why the Rams are 3-3 on the season. The three wins are...
IF I COULD BE LIKE CLAY
Rams head coach Jeff Fisher had a member of the scout team wear a blonde wig during practice so the team could practice locating Packers linebacker Clay Matthews.
The St. Louis Rams are hosting the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, and Rams head coach Jeff Fisher is using an interesting plan to get his team prepared for the game.
In order to get his offense acclimated to playing against Pro Bowl linebacker Clay Matthews, he had practice squad linebacker Sammy Brown wear a blond wig during practice.
“I thought it was pretty cool,” defensive...
Syllogisms are often used to form conclusions in sports. For those that do not study logic, a syllogism is a form of a logical argument where the conclusion is inferred from two prior statements. An easy example is:
All humans will eventually die.
All football players are humans.
All football players will eventually die.
After the last two games, I began asking...
ST. LOUIS (AP) The St. Louis Rams have done a good job of filling in for injured wide receiver Danny Amendola.
The team's leading receiver injured his shoulder against Arizona on Oct. 4, missed Sunday's loss at Miami and is expected to miss at least another three games.
The rest of the receivers picked up the slack against the Dolphins with 10 players making a catch.
The St. Louis Rams defense is good. It is really a good. I mean a top 10 defense in the NFL good. Actually, they are 7th in total defense in the National Football League.
The Rams defense is so good this season partly because our defensive picks in the draft the last few years has been stellar. With picks like Chris Long, Robert Quinn, Janoris Jenkins, and James Laurinaitis...
The St. Louis Rams, who haven't had a winning record since 2003, enter Sunday's home game against Green Bay with a 3-3 record. It's a new-look franchise, from the coach (Jeff Fisher) to the roster (31 of the 53 players are new to the team). A defense full of top picks is leading the way.
The St. Louis Rams will play host to the powerful Green Bay Packers at the Edward Jones Dome this Sunday.
The Rams are 3-3 on the year behind third year quarterback Sam Bradford and have a chance to stay above .500 on the year with what would be an exceptional win against the Packers.
Host Corey Rudd (@CoreyRudd) was joined by Shane Gray (@ShaneGmoSTLRams) to preview not only the...
Green Bay Packers (3-3) at St. Louis Rams (3-3)
It’s funny how much the general public likes to overreact to one game. Last week, everyone was talking about “what’s wrong with the Packers?” and now some people are calling them the best team in the NFL once again. On top of that, they are being very heavily bet as road dogs here. As you may know if you read these picks often...
To the casual football fan, the St. Louis Rams didn't look too much like the lesser team in Sunday's loss to the Miami Dolphins.
Sure, both teams currently sit at 3-3 following the game but so do 10 other NFL franchises, including the entire AFC East. The game didn't get nationally televised thanks to the Dallas Cowboys – Baltimore Ravens battle, but it still pitted...
The Bears unleash their top rated defense against the Lions on Monday night while the Packers look to keep rolling against the St. Louis Rams.
