*Authors note; this article was written the Saturday night before the Bengals – Rams game. As a St Louis Rams fan there is much to be humbled by at this point in the season, however in an attempt to demonstrate that there does maintain some amount of heart in this shattered club, I am predicting that the Rams (2-11) will beat the Bengals (7-6) Sunday in St. Louis. The quarterback position is completely in the air for the Rams, though for now it looks like relatively untested and recently signed Kellen Clemens will be in charge of the Rams offense at quarterback, however Big Steven Jackson will power it, and he will also be the key to the offensive output of the Rams. Back to point; Marshall Faulk, one of the greatest running backs in the NFL, will be honored during halftime as an inductee to the NFL Hall of Fame. My guess is that he will have words for the Rams in the locker room, and encouraging words to his former understudy and now the Rams all-time leading rusher, Big Steve Jackson.

Rams have nothing to play for but the future

ST. LOUIS Long after his team's latest loss, Kellen Clemens slouched in front of his locker and leafed through a stats packet that told a common story. On Dec. 7, the St. Louis Rams claimed the former New York Jets and Houston Texas quarterback off waivers to serve as a backup to Sam Bradford and A.J. Feeley after injuries sidelined both players. Clemens flipped through the...

Rams Pay Tribute To Marshall Faulk: Once More, With Feeling

The St. Louis Rams will be donning their throwback uniforms in tribute to Marshall Faulk, and contemplating a quest familiar to the beginning of his days here: taking an unknown quarterback into battle against a superior foe.   To me, the linchpin of the Rams success in those years wasn't Kurt Warner, though he was obviously a catalyst; not Bruce or Holt, though they were...

Chris Long Takes Huge Strides In Rushing The Passer

After his first three seasons as a member of the St. Louis Rams, some were disappointed with the play of defensive end Chris Long.  The Rams drafted Chris Long second overall out of Virginia in the 2008 NFL Draft and to some and his production coming into 2011 had just not met the standards of a second overall pick. Coming into to 2011, Long's career high in sacks was 8.5 in...

Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is hurting this season ... and so are sales of his No. 8 jersey at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis this season.

Rams likely to shut Bradford down, still see him as their future

The bad news for Sam Bradford is that his ankle injury will sideline him today against the Bengals, and probably for the rest of the season, too — and he’s had a lousy season even when he’s been healthy. The good news is that the Rams still see him as their franchise quarterback. Adam Schefter…
