Found October 28, 2013 on Seahawk Addicts:
The Rams didn’t pose much of a threat to the Seahawks even before they lost their starting QB Sam Bradford for the season.  Now that they’re headed into tonight’s game with ex-Jets failure Kellen Clemens under center (with ex-Browns, Chiefs, and Seahawks failure Brady Quinn on hand as his backup), St. Louis is little more than a speed bump.  That’s not homerism talking, nor am I just ragging on a division rival for rivalry’s sake – there is a stark contrast between the talent level and performance of the Seahawks versus that of the Rams, and any way you slice it the comparison favors the team from South Alaska by a wide margin. Barring a teamwide collapse or a catastrophic injury, the Hawks will be 7-1 in a few short hours.  And if you think that’s awesome, just wait until they sail into their bye week with a 10-1 record.  Including tonight’s game, here’s their next four penciled wins opponents:   Week Team Current Record ...

Week 8 Endgame: The blueprint for victory – Seahawks vs. Rams

Keys to a Seahawks victory This is one of those Seahawks games that scare me.  The Rams have lost starting quarterback Sam Bradford for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL and must start backup Kellen Clemens.   Clemens will be starting for the 13th time in his 9-year career. Heading into Monday night’s game he has a career record of 4-8 as a starter, including a 0-3...

Rams-Seahawks: how much magic can Kellen Clemens conjure?

I was asked a question, one that has been bedeviling me all week long. How can the Rams beat the Seahawks? The people asking me are the fine folks at Covers.com, and as far as I know, they weren't trying to be mean. Because, really. Without Sam Bradford and with our defensive coverage schemes in complete and utter shambles, how could a logical, orderly mind conceive of a...

Rams sticking with Kellen Clemens

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher has made it clear that they’re sticking with Kellen Clemens as their starter. “Yeah, we’re good,” Fisher said via ESPN.com. “He’s a little sore. I don’t know if he’ll do much (Wednesday) but he’ll be fine. I think he only stands to improve.” Fisher doesn’t have a choice. He has to stick with the quarterback that gives his...

You Had One Job, Kellen Clemens

The Rams really deserved to win this game. Well, the Rams defense deserved to win this game. Seattle’s offense mustered nothing except for a short field score and a long TD to Golden Tate that could have just as easily been an interception.Kellen Clemens and Kellen Clemens alone cost St. Louis at least nine points. Greg Zuerlein didn’t help by missing a long field goal late in...

Rams face major decisions as their season continues to get worse

Although they have three wins, the St. Louis Rams are one of the worst teams in football, and despite what some may consider a moral victory over the far superior Seattle Seahawks, the Rams are still struggling to remain competitive. The single biggest problem ailing the Rams continues to be a lackluster offensive attack. Their defense has given them the opportunity to win some...

Rams' Best Shots Not Good Enough for Winning 2013

Teams swap possessions, then St. Louis gets a freakishly competent third down conversion by Kellen Clemens on their second drive to set up a field goal.Just when the Rams actually looked like they might make Seattle nervous, Clemens throws a terrible interception to Bruce Irvin when the Rams had curl routes open. But the Seahawks again were quickly stifled on offense.Once again,...

Fisher not blaming Clemens for loss to Seahawks

ST. LOUIS (AP) Robert Quinn and Chris Long each had three sacks. Too bad the St. Louis Rams' defensive ends couldn't celebrate after the game, too. Coach Jeff Fisher, looking somewhat bleary-eyed, wasn't placing blame on backup quarterback Kellen Clemens for falling 1 yard shy of upsetting the Seattle Seahawks. The Rams (3-5) were held to three field goals in a 14-9...

Seahawks' goal-line stand preserves 14-9 win over Rams

The Rams knocked and knocked and knocked on the door. In the process they knocked the stuffing out of NFC West powerhouse Seattle. But they just couldn’t find the end zone, right down to a last-ditch effort on fourth-and-goal from the Seattle 2. As time expired, Kellen Clemens’ fade pattern to a well-covered Brian Quick fell incomplete in the left corner of the end zone. A...
