St. Louis Rams
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, like lining up right or filling the right assignment. A team that, even when they catch a rare break, manages to fumble it away. A team that seems stuck in a perpetual organizational rebuild and is only mentioned by the national media when (a) something embarrassing happens, or (b) the topic of LA's football stadium project comes up.
Okay, now let me tell you about TWO bad football teams.
The 2013 season is only a quarter of the way through, but a theme is already emerging. The gulf between the haves and the have-nots is yawningly wide, and there are a lot of bad football teams being ca...

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.

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 his toughest...

Admittedly, Justin Blackmon’s return to the Jacksonville Jaguars this week will likely go largely overlooked by national audiences. After all, the second year receiver plays for a team with no hope, and the Jaguars need a lot more help on offense than the addition of one receiver. Still, he may be able to make the Jaguars at least a little more competitive.
With Blackmon back...

Now that we’ve got the obvious out of the way, we can get on to the NESN.com NFL picks for Week 5. This week, the Jags are playing the St. Louis Rams, who struggle themselves to be a very good football team. They’re actually kind of bad, too. But here’s the thing: St. Louis enters this...
