Three reasons why Tre Mason won’t be the Rams’ offensive MVP in 2015

Last week, Chris Simms of Bleacher Report predicted that Tre Mason would be the St. Louis Rams’ offensive MVP for this upcoming season. Although Mason is talented, I disagree. Here are three reasons why: Todd Gurley might be ready to go sooner than anticipated, according to recent reports. If Gurley is able to fully recover from his knee injury by the start of the season, then...

St Louis Rams running back Benny Cunningham tells his draft story

St. Louis Rams running back Benny Cunningham is one of the many young men who didn't hear his name called on draft day in 2013.  Just like so many before him and so many after him, he has a story about his journey as a college prospect, to going undrafted, to being in the NFL. Cunningham had a terrific career at Middle Tennessee State, but an injury his senior year ended his season...

Forget 2014, Stacy Has Potential to Rebound

The St. Louis Rams rushing attack did not seem to be running on all cylinders during the 2014 season. Before the season began, the Rams looked to have a three-headed monster. Zac Stacy would be the lead back, with Tre Mason complementing him and Benny Cunningham filling the passing-back role.However, as the season progressed, Mason solidified himself as the lead back, and Cunningham...

Tre Mason has league’s best “breakaway percentage,” but must improve between tackles

With just two games remaining in their 2014 campaign, one of the necessary discussion topics of the offseason will be the Rams’ backfield situation. Rookie Tre Mason has a stranglehold on the starting job as it stands, but the Rams will head into the winter with 2013 leading rusher Zac Stacy and effective spell back Benny Cunningham still in tow. The competition and experience...

Rams' offensive issues usually begin at the line of scrimmage

ST. LOUIS -- The inability to stop a relentlessly aggressive Arizona pass rush made Thursday a long night for quarterback Shaun Hill and the Rams' offense. As usual, Arizona made stopping the run a priority, leaving tailbacks Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham few chances behind a front five that struggled to get much of a push, a recurring issue this season. It hardly came as a surprise...

St. Louis Rams lose a heartbreaker to the San Diego Chargers

Rams fans have had quite a few gut-wrenching losses over the years, but I think yesterday’s 27-24 loss to the Chargers ranks right near the top. In a game that had a little bit of everything – a 99-yard pick-six by Janoris Jenkins, a muffed punt, a blocked field goal and numerous phantom penalties by the worst ref crew in history, to name a few – the Rams lost the game on a...

St. Louis Rams’ to-do list for the second half of the season

As the Rams prepare for a trip to San Francisco this Sunday, the league is in full midseason swing. The Rams, as it stands, are looking up at the rest of the NFC West with a record of 2-5 and about $43 million worth of cap money on injured reserve. It’s not pretty. However, since Monday’s column very blatantly went the doom and gloom route, today’s piece offers some commentary...

Rams' Fisher has embraced concept of running back by committee

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher has embraced the concept of a running back by committee. Zac Stacy just missed 1,000 yards rushing as a rookie last year, but wasn't in the mix last week because he was hurt and Benny Cunningham and rookie Tre Mason played well in a victory over Seattle. Stacy was nursing a calf injury, so he was limited to one snap. But Fisher plans...

Fake punt helps Rams top Seahawks 28-26

ST. LOUIS (AP) With another big lead slipping away at home, St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher made a daring call that turned out to be sheer brilliance. Lined up to punt the ball from their 18-yard line, the Rams instead ran a fake. Punter Johnny Hekker tossed an 18-yard pass to a wide-open Benny Cunningham to pick up a first down and give St. Louis a chance to run out the clock...

Stock Up/Stock Down Rams heading into Week 6

Zac Stacy- Stock Down Stacy was a ghost in Monday night’s loss to the 49ers. He was involved in the Rams’ drives throughout the game, but he never got his name called. The Rams even started to go to other running backs beside Stacy, such as Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham. He would get 1 or 2 yards a carry, and never anything over 10 yards. This has just been the story of his...
