Top 5 ways the St. Louis Rams can win against Minnesota

As the Rams open their 2014 regular season on Sunday afternoon against the visiting Minnesota Vikings, they will not have the luxury of easing into the regular season. Sunday’s game has the feel of one the Rams need to win given the “softness” of the first quarter of their season relative to the difficulty of the rest. There will be a few key methods that could help guide the...

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...

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...

The Washington Redskins just can’t escape the drama

I thought we were over all the drama and absurdities in Washington. I thought axing Mike Shanahan was the final deed? But, no. Now, I’m finding out that the same questions are arising again. According to Mike Reiss of ESPN.com, members of the Patriots organization, and others who’ve witnessed practice, feel that Kirk Cousins is the best quarterback on the Redskins roster. What...

Cowboys, Chargers backup QBs to be busy in preseason opener

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Like backup quarterbacks? Then the Dallas Cowboys-San Diego Chargers exhibition opener Thursday night is one to watch. With Tony Romo sitting out to rest his surgically repaired back, Brandon Weeden will get the start for the Cowboys. Philip Rivers likely will take a seat after the opening series, allowing Kellen Clemens to make his Chargers debut after Charlie...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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...
