St. Louis Rams defense was missing in action against the Cowboys

Get out to an early lead, control the game via the run, and let the pass rush go to work. That formula led to some surprising success last season when the Rams were forced to reconsider their identity in the wake of losing quarterback Sam Bradford in Week 7 and move forward with backup Kellen Clemens. The Rams took a tough blow in losing their starting quarterback, but rallied around...

St. Louis Rams Feeling a “Sense of Urgency” After Loss to Vikings

Jeff Fisher, the ever passionate, yet stoic coach he is, will not let one performance dictate the season. Rams’ players and fans alike found this out last year, and the year before. They could somehow suffer a blowout loss such as last week, then come out and do the same to an opponent the next. Just last year, the Rams came to Indianapolis, a playoff team, and spanked them 38...

San Diego Chargers roster projections revisited

This past May, I made a very early projection at what the 53-man roster for the San Diego Chargers might be at the start of the regular season. As the Bolts’ Week 1 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football looms, it’s time to revisit that prediction. As you will find with any sort of prediction, there was a lot of guessing, several shots in the dark, a couple...

Bubble watch: Chargers players in need of a big game against the Cardinals

The last preseason game typically doesn’t mean much for the fans as most of the starters won’t be playing tonight, but for 22 men, this may be the last time they suit up in a Chargers uniform. The Bolts need to trim the roster from 75 to 53 following today’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. It’s important for all bubble players to show their worth with the practice squad...

Here’s how St. Louis Rams quarterback Shaun Hill compare to Clemens and Bradford

It’s perfectly OK if you’re still in mourning. After quarterback Sam Bradford re-tore his left ACL in the first quarter of the Rams’ preseason game against the Browns last Saturday, the promises that come with a new season, an offensive revival, and just maybe breaking that .500 win barrier look a bit flushed. However, the show must still go on in Bradford’s absence, and...

The San Diego Chargers are likely to improve on their win total from last season

The preseason is really long. As we all wait for real games to start, we can start getting a feel of how the season might play out. Instead of looking at unreliable data from the preseason, places like Football Outsiders use their projected Defense-adjusted Value Over Average metrics to run simulations of the season. The mean wins for the San Diego Chargers after these simulations...

Can the Seattle Seahawks exploit the NFL’s new defensive scrutiny?

The Seattle Seahawks got a taste of how the tightened pass-defense rules could impact the game last Friday when cornerback Tharold Simon’s 105-yard interception-returned-for-a-touchdown was taken away on a yellow flag. Over the weekend the NFL admitted the holding penalty was a bad call. They were assisted with intensity by Seattle coach Pete Carroll (himself a college defensive...

The NFL Is Already Apologizing For Terrible Illegal Contact Penalties

There probably isn’t a more dreaded phrase in preseason professional sports than “point of emphasis” — which is, essentially, an over-enforcement of existing rules meant to drill new policies into players’ heads. In preparation for the 2014 season, the NFL has decided to “emphasize” illegal contact, which has led to an incredible spike in penalties already. According...

Initial takeaways from the Chargers 41-14 loss in Seattle

As good as the effort and intensity levels were for the Chargers last week, they were equally as bad Friday night in Seattle. Yes, it’s just the preseason, and in the long run, no one is going to remember this game, but Mike McCoy will not be happy with how flat his team was going up against the defending Super Bowl champions. San Diego looked like a team that didn’t want to...
