Through the fog, the Rams can see these three things clearly

ST. LOUIS -- Less than a month ago, Pro Football Focus released an analytical study designed to determine how close each team came to being a Super Bowl contender in 2014. The results said the Rams needed ten additional above-average players, more than all but five of their peers across the league. While perhaps a bit harsh, it may also serve as a reality check against all the optimism...

Rams' secondary on a mission to cement hard-hitting reputation

ST. LOUIS -- The most improved unit on the Rams' defense might not be the first one that comes to mind. Sure, a resurgent defensive line that contributed heavily to 29 sacks in the last seven games after just one in the first five provided the most obvious impact. But it's clear those talented pass rushers are considerably more effective when a young secondary can offer strong support...

Where Do We Go From Here? Jaguars Week 16

This matchup is a heated rivalry that goes back to the days when the Tennessee Titans were first starting in Nashville at old Commodore Stadium. Certainly when defensive coordinator Gregg Williams stole the Jacksonville Jaguars offensive playbook during the 1999 season, using it to perfection in dismantling the Jaguars' Super Bowl run in the AFC Championship game. A hatred on both...

Gregg Williams on Drew Stanton: “I think he’s been undervalued…”

After Wednesday’s practice, defensive coordinator Gregg Williams spoke to the press about the upcoming game.

Quinn reaping the benefits of Rams' resurgent defensive line

ST. LOUIS -- Statistics haven't always told the full story of Robert Quinn's impact on the Rams' resurgent defensive line. He started the season without a sack in his first five games while often attracting double teams and still putting plenty of pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Then shortly after telling any reporters who would listen that it just took a "snowflake" to cause...

Rams look to build on shutout win over Oakland

ST. LOUIS (AP) The St. Louis Rams are coming off a laugher against the Oakland Raiders that reminded fans of the Greatest Show on Turf. Enthusiasm must be tempered because Oakland has one win and the Rams have yet to win consecutive games. The Rams (5-7) do have three signature victories this season, against Denver, San Francisco and defending Super Bowl champion Seattle. But after...

Defensive coordinator turns Rams into scrappy unit

ST. LOUIS (AP) St. Louis Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams is proud of his scrappy unit. The defense read Colin Kaepernick's quarterback sneak and forced him to fumble at the goal line with 2 seconds left in the Ram's 13-10 upset at San Francisco on Sunday. The Rams pass rush dropped Kaepernick eight times, including six in the first half. That was the most in franchise...

Grade Day: Rams Defensive Line Carries the Team Against the 49ers

The Rams entered Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara desperately needing a win after a brutal loss to the Kansas City Chiefs last week. The good news is the Rams were well aware of their division opponent and usually play their division foes well. In what would come down to the wire, the Rams desperately needed to play a clean game, and showcase the defense that had pundits lauding them...

Saint Doug or Satan Doug?

Was it the screen pass to Frank Summers? The Chris Hogan fumble? **** Dixon lined up at WR? The offensive line impersonating a subway turnstile? All of those moments ultimately led to  me cursing out the football Gods on Sunday. And the guy I really wanted to punch in the nuts was Doug Marrone. This guy who has been kind of a thorn in my ass has the Bills at 4-3 and maybe making...

Mailbag: What is the biggest weakness on the St. Louis Rams team so far?

What is the biggest weakness on the St. Louis Rams team so far? – Tom Surprisingly, the trenches. The Rams came into the 2014 season with the expectation that they were going to run the ball well and play good defense. Neither of those two things are happening so far. The Rams are allowing an awful 30+ points a game, and are ranked 19th in rushing yards per game. If you are going...

Quotable Thursdays: “The Sacks are on the Individual Players”

The Rams are coming off two seasons where they were in the top three in sacks each year and were known for their relentless pass rush that could deflate and stifle opposing offenses. Through four games this year, the Rams only have one sack from Aaron Donald, a player who isn’t playing enough. Jonathan Vilma and Chris Simms were on Bleacher Report talking about the Rams lack of...

Inability to stop the run hurting Rams' sack aspirations

ST. LOUIS -- The pass rush was supposed to be a St. Louis Rams strength with four first-rounders on the defensive line running Gregg Williams' aggressive scheme. Instead, they've gotten to the quarterback just once in three games, a sack by rookie Aaron Donald. Eight teams are in double figures when it comes to sacks. St. Louis (1-2) is dead last in the 32-team NFL going into Sunday...

Examining the state of the St. Louis Rams’ pass rush

After the Rams’ heartbreaking 34-31 loss to the visiting Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, much has been made about the team’s surprising lack of defensive effort. How could a team with as vaunted a pass rush as the Rams and an early 21-point lead not manage to trouble Dallas quarterback Tony Romo at least a little bit? A unit that was so dominant and able to control games last season...

Gregg Williams' debut with Rams a bust -- and it's only getting tougher

Analyzing the St. Louis Rams’ run defense vs. Minnesota

After Sunday’s lopsided 34-6 season-opening loss to the Minnesota Vikings, one of the few on positive takeaways the Rams could point to (on paper at least) was their relatively decent job containing vaunted Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. The Rams held Peterson to just 75 yards on 21 carries, an average of 3.1 per attempt. While keying in on the six-time Pro Bowler and 2012...

If this is how the Rams are going to look this year, it is going to be a very long season. As you...
