The ideal 2014 schedule for the St. Louis Rams

I can’t ever remember being this antsy while waiting for the NFL schedule to be released. Whether that has to do with being a content-starved managing editor of an NFL website or the fact that I’m planning to see the Rams play in San Diego this season, I’m not sure. I just know that I’ve been waiting on pins and needles for three damn months. And it looks like we’ll all...

The Curious Chargers Offseason So Far

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports Ask any true bolt blue (see what I did there?) football fanatic, and they will tell you that the offseason is an exciting time that can garner as much heartbreak, drama and sheer joy as any playoff game with the season on the line.

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...

Report: Veteran QB Shaun Hill Visiting With Rams Monday

  Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Dispatch reports that the veteran QB Shaun Hill will visit with the Rams on Monday. St. Louis just lost Kellen Clemens to the Chargers a few days ago, so they could really use a solid backup quarterback given that Sam Bradford is coming off of a serious knee injury. Hill, 34, signed a two-year deal with the Lions back in 2012 and spent the past two...

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.

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.

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.
