Right now the St. Louis Rams are facing the cure all for ailing teams: the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, the Rams secondary is banged up and leading the way is veteran CB Cortland Finnegan. With Finnegan (hamstring) and Trumaine Johnson (illness) missing practice again on Thursday, including the injury to safety T.J. McDonald (fractured leg) and the secondary will be a mix and match bunch.

Rams will get a huge boost if they start Zac Stacy

If you need a fantasy running back, one guy you would want to pick up is Zac Stacy.  Stash him on your roster, because if this kid is given the chance he is going to take over for the Rams.  The Rams have not had great play from any of their backs, and are currently […]

Fisher, Rams trying to dig out of 1-3 hole

ST. LOUIS -- Jeff Fisher is upset with the Rams' 1-3 start - and hasn't tried to hide his anger. In his 18th season as an NFL head coach and second with St. Louis, Fisher answered only two questions before walking out of his postgame press conference Thursday night after a 35-11 loss to San Francisco. He spoke for 1 minute, 32 seconds and has shed little light on one of...

Fantasy Football Week 5: The Creeper Report

Eddie Royal or Golden Tate? That was my biggest fantasy football debate this week. Admittedly, I was very slim at flex in Andy’s league. [Then I step through the fog and I creep through the smog Cuz I'm Snoop Doggy (Who?) Doggy (What?) Doggy Dogg.] Royal was ranked higher, but I feel rankers are always stingy with Seattle’s wide receivers. So I threw the question on Twitter...

St. Louis Rams: Changes should be made to interior offensive line too

Earlier this week, St. Louis Rams running back Daryl Richardson caused a stir after tweeting that he was not starting at running back this week. Afterwards on Wednesday, Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said that the starting tailback has not been decided for Week 5. The Rams should certainly look at changing something in the backfield as the team managed to gain just 18 yards in 19 attempts...

Rams welcome Dunbar back after PED suspension with open arms -- but why?

Looking back now at the handwringing that took place on August 14 when the NFL suspended Rams starting outside linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar for cheating the hearty welcome the defensive sledgehammer received upon his return on Tuesday seemed sort of odd. It probably shouldn't have. This is how the NFL rolls. A guy can pump himself with more steroids than a factory chicken get...

The St. Louis Rams Are In Trouble

A month ago, excitement was at an all-time high in St. Louis for the St. Louis Rams. Sure they lost three of their top offensive weapons in Steven Jackson, Danny Amendola and Brandon Gibson, but with the same offensive coordinator as last year for Sam Bradford, new rookie playmakers on both the offensive & defensive ends of the ball, and momentum built up from a 7-8-1 2012 season...

Rams plan to emphasize running game against Jaguars

ST. LOUIS (AP) Rams coach Jeff Fisher knows the importance of the ground game and aims to get St. Louis' rushing attack in gear. Playing Jacksonville on Sunday presents the perfect opportunity. While St. Louis (1-3) has rushed for just 189 yards this season, averaging a league-worst 47.3 yards per game, the Jaguars (0-4) have the worst run defense in the NFL, giving up 165...

The Rams are now the only team in the NFL with no rushing touchdown

The Rams need help at running back. I don’t know what Jeff Fisher is doing, but the Rams have a stacked team. Their running back position is so sad , they should be signing a veteran like Michael Turner. There has been a rumor that Zac Stacy will start this week. If that happens the […]

St. Louis Rams: 2013 Week 5 NFL Power Rankings (#28)

Last week: 20 (-8) Record: 1-3 The Rams keep adding talent, but they never seem to get any better. Their retooled offensive line isn’t playing up to expectations. Rodger Saffold is out, while veteran Scott Wells has been awful at center. Chris Williams continues to prove he’s not a starting caliber player, while even Jake Long has not been the franchise left tackle they thought...

How Important is Cortland Finnegan to the Rams' Pass Defense?

As the St Louis Rams gear up for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, they will have to take the field without Cortland Finnegan, who is nursing a hamstring injury. "Good," many fans will say, and point to his absurdly high passer rating against this season, or take the long view and point out his sad decline over the past year. It is assumed that the defense...

St. Louis Rams vs Jacksonville Jaguars preview

Photo by Tim Heitman/ USA TODAY SportsFor the past few years the Jacksonville Jaguars (0-4) and St. Louis Rams (1-3) have had similar records. This year both teams are hanging out near the bottom of the standings once again. The two organizations have had their flashes of success every so often, but it is just that, a flash. This Sunday the Jaguars will travel to the Edward Jones...

Prediction of the St. Louis Rams next four games

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ Getty Images A 1-3 record to start the season can be demoralizing for any team. Although not many believed the St. Louis Rams were going to contend for a playoff spot, many within the organization believed they were going to at least improve on their 7-8-1 record from last season. So far all the new weapons the Rams added during the offseason have failed...

Bradford tries to shake off rough game

With such a young group of skill position players it was expected that the Rams would have some ups and downs on offense this season. No one however expected the kind of “down” that took place in Week 4 against San Francisco. Anytime you’re below 200 yards in total offense and don’t reach the teens in points scored it’s a bad day at the office. And the Rams were at 188...

Rams vs Jaguars: A Forgettable Face/Off

Let me tell you about a bad football team. A team that consistently struggles to put first half points on the board, and finds itself halfway to a blowout every halftime. A team that has to rip up the playbook every game because they are pathologically unable to establish the run or protect their quarterback. A team that has some talent on defense but continuously loses on fundamentals...
