The Rams have had a bit of bad luck of late, and their collective frustration finally boiled over after a tough loss to the Titans on Sunday. Rams defensive end William Hayes, who is in his second season with the team, took his frustrations out in the locker room after the 28-21 loss on Sunday, smashing a mirror with his forearm and suffering a sizable cut, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Hayes was immediately taken back to the training room and received stitches on the gash. The six-year veteran was angry after the Rams (3-6) endured their third consecutive loss, each which were very winnable games in the fourth quarter. So he hit the mirror in the heat of the moment, not considering the potential consequences. “You know I’m passionate about the game, about my teammates,” Hayes said on Wednesday. “I know every guy in this locker room was a little frustrated after the game. And I kind of let my feelings out, probably in a way I shouldn’t have. There’s a way to do things, a...

Opportunity knocks for Rams' rookie Stedman Bailey -- and he's ready to answer

ST. LOUIS -- Giving more snaps to rookie receiver Stedman Bailey isn't going to turn around the Rams' season. Heck, Brett Favre in his prime would have been challenged to right the St. Louis ship.

Morning Ram-blings: Hayes' frustration

Of the many emotions readily available in the St. Louis Rams locker room Sunday after yet another disappointing loss to the Tennessee Titans, there was one more abundant than all the rest: frustration. That frustration was written all over defensive end Chris Long's face and evident in the exasperated voice of defensive tackle Kendall Langford . But nowhere was it more easy...

Rams’ Cortland Finnegan Unveils Sick Custom-Made Jordan Cleats (Photo)

St. Louis Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan might get fined for the new cleats he’s about to unveil, but it shouldn’t matter because they are crazy hot. Finnegan reached out to DeJesus Customs, and they blessed him with this custom-made pair of Jordan cleats with a throw back Rams theme as well. He has gold-covered Air Jordan III sneakers, and Air Jordan XII cleats featuring...

3 things to watch in Rams-Colts matchup

ST. LOUIS -- It wasn't that long ago that the St. Louis Rams had won two straight games, were sitting at .500 and quarterback Sam Bradford was on pace for the best season of his four-year career. But in the past three weeks, the Rams have lost Bradford to a season-ending knee injury and then lost at Carolina and at home against Seattle and Tennessee. The season has turned and...

Weekly IDP Rankings: Week Ten For 2013 Fantasy Football

Before I get started talking IDPs for this week, it’s time to put you all at ease. I’m sure many of you spent your entire week tirelessly coming up with nicknames for Robert Quinn and Chris Long, as I suggested last week. But it turns out that they beat us to the punch. Though no announcers ever mention it, the two dominant pass-rushers in St. Louis have nicknamed themselves...

Time to put it to the St. Louis Rams. Go Colts!

After the nailbiter comeback on Sunday Night Football in Week 9 it’s time for the Colts to return home and face the St. Louis Rams. It seems anything can happen in terms of what this team looks like from week to week, and I’m hoping to see a more solid sixty minute performance in Week 10. The bright spots in the Colts’ first week without Reggie Wayne in the lineup were that...

How Chris Johnson got big runs against the Rams

Thanks to my Football Outsiders connection and a link with the Rams, I was fortunate enough to wind up in the press box of the Edward Jones Dome for last Sunday's game, with a view that greatly resembled the all-22 overhead shot. Because I was there with the FO link, my extended comments on the game, covering both the Titans and the Rams, ended up in Monday's Audibles column...

Rams say Incognito wasn’t a bully here

Richie Incognito’s time in St. Louis wasn’t exactly quiet. In 2006, a pair of late penalties in a Nov. 12 game in Seattle contributed mightily to a 24-22 last-second loss to the Seahawks. Had the Rams hung on in that game they would’ve ended up winning the NFC West in Scott Linehan’s rookie season as head coach. In 2007, he dubbed himself “The Sheriff” after taking part...

St. Louis Rams at Indianapolis Colts: 2013 Week 10 NFL Pick

St. Louis Rams (3-6) at Indianapolis Colts (6-2) On paper, this line might be a little bit too high. The Colts are moving the chains at a 79% rate, as opposed to 75% for their opponents. Meanwhile, the Rams are moving the chains at a 72% rate, as opposed to 74% for their opponents. That suggests this line should be around 7, instead of 9.5. That being said, that doesn’t take into...
