St. Louis Rams: what is next for 2015?

James Laurinaitis The St. Louis Rams in 2014 have had their challenges. The Rams had some bad luck with some injuries, play calling, and getting players ready to compete on a week to week basis. The Rams play calling on both sides of the ball has left a lot to be desired. This year should have been the St. Louis Rams year to make it to the playoffs but bad luck always seemed to...

The St. Louis Rams’ front seven will only be as good as James Laurinaitis

The Rams’ front seven has been the subject of much ballyhoo this offseason, including a piece from our own Sam Tramel earlier this week.
