Training camp preview: Chargers QB position is a battle for #2

As far as the quarterback position is concerned, the Chargers are one of the lucky 10 or so franchises with a signal caller capable of winning the big game. Philip Rivers success over the years may be questioned, but there is no doubt in this writer’s mind, #17 is if anything, underrated. The Chargers front man is a winner, and now that he has competent coaching and talent around...

St. Louis Rams should circle this particular game on their calendar in 2014

As World Cup fever lingers stateside for at least 24 more hours, many of you reading this are plotting ways to skip work and catch the US National Team as they take on the Germans in their final match of group play with knockout round advancement on the line. It was the same plotting you had to do on Monday of last week when the team kicked off their campaign against Ghana, and you...

St. Louis Rams receiving corps a subject of focus in OTAs

As it stands, the Rams are carrying 11 wide receivers on their roster as the team embarks on the second week of organized team activities. With minimal additions to a unit that underachived in 2013, how will the corps shakeout as the offseason program begins? In each of the last two seasons, head coach Jeff Fisher has gone with a corps of six players at the position. Last season...

Much too early prediction of the Chargers 53-man roster

It might not seem like it, but with the month of June right around the corner, the NFL season is steadfast approaching. With that in mind, it might be time to offer up guesses as to what the San Diego Chargers’ roster will look like when they take on Arizona in the second part of the opening Monday Night Football doubleheader. The Bolts spent six draft picks this offseason on some...

Will the St. Louis Rams wide receivers step up in 2014?

The receiving corps created the biggest issue with the Rams offense last year – in large part due to Kellen Clemens taking the snaps for the majority of the season. The Rams need to find a way to be consistent in the passing game to allow the running game to thrive. St. Louis opted to stay away from wide receivers in this year’s draft and have consistently professed confidence...

Predicting the Chargers Wins and Losses: Game by Game

I wrote this article last year and emerged a mediocre 8-8. Similarly, the Chargers have been relatively ordinary themselves with records of 9-7, 7-9, 8-8, and 9-7 over the past four seasons, respectively. Granted, a late-season five-game winning streak earned them a wildcard spot and the surprise win (yes, surprise, I've been a fan way too long!) over the Cincinnati Bengals was...

Rams put a hex on the Saints in St Louis again

Two years ago, AJ Feely and a hangdog Rams team playing for little but pride pulled off one of the great upsets of that year. The victims were the New Orleans Saints, then as now putative contenders for a deep playoff run. That unlikely win created a blueprint for pulling off the Big Upset.  Two years later the Rams did it again, and they did it better.  Kellen Clemens had...

Mailbag: What to think of the Shaun Hill signing?

Thoughts on the Shaun Hill signing? Thumbs up, down or sideways? – Tyler, St. Louis I say thumbs up just because this means Hill can no longer terrorize the Rams as an opponent. Seriously, look at his career record against the Rams. He’s started just 26 games in his 12-year career, but four of those of those starts have come against the Rams, three as a starter for San Francisco...

Who will back up Sam Bradford for the St. Louis Rams this year? How about A.J. McCarron?

In 2013, quarterback Kellen Clemens came off the bench for the St. Louis Rams and kept the team afloat for nine games. It wasn’t pretty, and it wasn’t exciting, but Clemens finished the season 4-5 in relief of starting quarterback Sam Bradford. It didn’t take Clemens long to parlay that performance into a two-year deal worth $3 million from the San Diego Chargers. Clemens...

Chargers lose familiarity with Whitehurst, gain experience with Clemens

Yesterday, Charlie Whitehurst’s tenure as a San Diego Charger ended as he signed a two year deal worth up to $8 million dollars with the Tennessee Titans. Whitehurst’s career has been defined by potential and one big win as a Seattle Seahawk that sent the team to the playoffs in 2010-11. While the NFL still isn’t sure exactly what Whitehurst is, it’s no secret the Chargers...

St. Louis Rams 2014 Off-Season Report

2013 Recap The Rams were 3-4 in 7 games with Sam Bradford this season and 4-5 in 9 games after he tore his ACL, with Kellen Clemens under center. At first glance, it may appear that Sam Bradford and Kellen Clemens were comparable quarterbacks. That’s not the case though. Bradford actually had a very solid season before the injury, completing 60.7% of his passes for an average of...

Rams look over QB possibilities at Senior Bowl

At this point in the process, it seems pretty clear the Rams aren’t taking a quarterback high in the NFL draft. General manager Les Snead basically said as much a couple of weeks ago. But it still could happen at some point in the draft, perhaps somewhere in the middle rounds. In theory, the Rams could keep Kellen Clemens while drafting a prospect to groom as a backup or potential...

Rams Say They Are Committed to Sam Bradford

Teams lie, so take this with a grain of salt, but if this is true, it is a big mistake in my opinion by the Rams. I thought they actually played better with Kellen Clemens under center.  With the amount of quality quarterbacks available and the many draft picks the Rams have, they should take one. But, the Rams GM according to ESPN said Bradford is their guy.

St. Louis Rams: Three New Year's Resolutions For 2014

Happy New Years Rams fans! St. Louis had a rough 2013. Their franchise QB was injured halfway through the season, and it looked as if every other position was playoff ready. Kellen Clemens did a good job replacing Bradford, but his subpar performances week in and week out weren't enough for a .500 season and they fell to 7-9. Maybe this year will be different, let's take...

After disappointing end, Rams look ahead to closing NFC West gap in offseason

The St. Louis Rams went into Seattle wanting to show something. The Rams looked at it as an opportunity, taking a two-game win streak on the road against arguably the best team in the NFL -- a team they came up just one yard short of upsetting two months earlier on Monday Night Football. What the Rams showed Sunday wasn't good. Seattle effectively dominated St. Louis from start...
