St. Louis Rams: 2012 Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#12)

Last week: 12 (+0) Record: 0-1 And here’s the other half of the controversial prediction. On one hand, I nailed the Rams/Lions game. The Rams showed they were a better team than last year on both sides of the ball. On the other hand, my prediction of the Rams in the playoff only makes sense if the 49ers don’t prove me wrong. If Alex Smith improbably becomes a true franchise quarterback...

Titus Young was benched during Rams game for head-butting Janoris Jenkins

Titus Young is a player who many have said has breakout potential this season, but that will all depend on his attitude. The second-year receiver caught only one pass for 14 yards against the Rams on Sunday, but his lack of production was due in large part to the fact that Young only played in the first half. Detroit head coach Jim Schwartz benched Young at the end of the first...

Rams win 58 minutes against Detroit, but lose the last two

Ultimately, the Rams' upset bid of the Detroit Lions came down to this: a third-down and five play with 2:03 on the clock, just outside the red zone, tied up 20-all. Get the first down, and the Rams can control the clock and have the last shot at putting points on the board. But before we consider what the Rams did on that play, we have to consider everything that brought...

But luckily for coaches, players and fans everywhere, there are replacements roaming the sidelines to keep things in order.
