Found September 30, 2012 on STLSportsMinute:
Last season was a tough one for second-year St. Louis Rams defensive end Robert Quinn.  He did not even dress in his first game as a rookie and often times found himself limited to playing only during passing situations. Now, in 2012, with one year under his belt and a new head coach backing him, Quinn is making more of an impact and living up to the billing of being a first round draft pick. The pass-rushing defensive end said in a live chat earlier this week that he is feeling more comfortable and is ready to produce. "Being around the guys in the locker room for a year makes me more comfortable and I think less and play faster now. You also realize it's your job and you have to grow up fast and produce." Thus far in 2012, Quinn has produced. Opposite Chris Long, another Rams first round draft pick, Quinn has collected two sacks in three games and along, seems to constantly be applying pressure on the opposing quarterback. Quinn is an exciting talent and clea...

Steven Jackson expected to be active with reduced role

St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson is expected to play in Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. Jackson had been listed as questionable with a groin injury. A focal point of the Rams offense for years, it is expected that Jackson will have a reduced role in the game since the injury is preventing him from being at 100 percent. The injury occurred last weekend at Solider...

With Steven Jackson a game time decision two rookie backs expected to carry the load

While Steven Jackson saves himself for Sunday, his rookie understudies are getting more shots to prove they belong. The Rams running back was held out of practice for the second straight day Thursday while nursing a nagging groin injury. Both Daryl Richardson and Isiah Pead have been getting the bulk of the carries. “The younger backs are coming along pretty good,” Jackson said...

Danny Amendola catches TD pass on fake field goal

The St. Louis Rams needed an offensive spark.  According to the Fox broadcast of the Rams game with the Seattle Seahawks, the Rams had not scored a touchdown in one hundred offensive plays.

Steven Jackson Expected To Play

Jason La Canfora of NFL Network expects injured Rams halfback Steven Jackson to participate in Sunday's game versus the Seahawks, though he could be limited.Fantasy Spin:Jackson, hampered by a groin issue in recent weeks, has only totaled 20 carries over his last two games so we'd be very wearing about employing him as anything more than a flex player in Week 4. Daryl Richardson...

St. Louis Rams pull off fake field goal against Seahawks (Video)

Personally, I'm a huge fan of trick plays and this fake field goal that the St. Louis Rams pulled off against the Seattle Seahawks was a thing of beauty. The Rams were trailing 7-3 and appeared to be kicking a short field goal to cut Seattle's lead to one. However, the Rams called a fake field goal as punter Johnny Hekker finds Danny Amendola in the right corner...

Danny Amendola Has Solid Outing vs. Seattle

Rams receiver Danny Amendola had his usual PPR-friendly line -- six catches for 55 yards -- Sunday against the Seahawks, but he also added a touchdown on a fake field goal late in the first half.Fantasy Spin:Amendola has had at least five catches in every game this season, including 15 in Week 2. The receiver's touchdown Sunday is one that Sam Bradford owners won't like since...

Seattle Seahawks vs. St. Louis Rams: Five Things We Learned

It was another tough win for the Rams, but they were able to pull it off. They are definitely grateful for another win.

Below is a list of five things we learned from this game.1. The Rams Can Win At HomeThe Rams have won both of their...

Rams rookie kicker Greg Zuerlein being compared to Rob Bironas by Jeff Fisher

The rookie kicker is 8 for 8 on field goals this season, including a 56-yarder last week — 1 yard shy of the franchise record. Sam Bradford passed for 310 yards and three touchdowns two weeks ago, but didn’t get the Rams into the end zone in Sunday’s loss at Chicago. Running back Steven Jackson is nursing a groin injury. An offensive line that had been keeping Bradford fairly...

St. Louis Rams at Chicago Bears Week 3 Recap

It wasn't a Sunday night or Monday night game, but it was still another embarrassing loss to the Chicago Bears for the St. Louis Rams.I did predict that it was going to be a loss for the Rams, but I thought the Rams would have a better performance then they actually did. The Bears beat the Rams 23-6. The Rams only scored two field goals courtesy of rookie Greg Zuerlein.The Rams...

Rams 19, Seahawks 13

ST. LOUIS -- Relying on thunder-footed rookie kicker Greg Zuerlein and a defense which kept the Seahawks out of the end zone after the game's first 4 minutes and 15 seconds, St. Louis matched its win total of 2011 with a 19-13 verdict Sunday at Edward Jones Dome. Zuerlein, a sixth-round draft pick in April out of Missouri Western, drilled field goals of 58, 48, 60 and 24 yards...

Week 4: Seahawks at Rams Game Thread

The Rams are better this year than last, particularly on defense, but a porous o-line and a distinct lack of reliable receivers not named Amendola should prove fatal for St. Louis' offense.  Leroy Hill is questionable for the game with a calf injury, but his possible absence is more than made up for by Rams left tackle Rodger Saffold being ruled out for the game.  I'm looking...
