Robert Quinn and Chris Long are the heart of the St. Louis Rams’ team

Chris Long and Robert Quinn are the heart and soul of the St. Louis Rams’ defense (with an honorable mention going to James Laurinaitis). Without the pass rushing ability that the two defensive ends bring, the Rams defense would go from formidable to below average in a hurry.

Long ejected for throwing a punch

Rams defensive end Chris Long was ejected from Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers for throwing punches. He probably deserved that consequence. What happened next was absolutely uncalled for.
