Top-5 Incumbent St. Louis Rams poised to break out in 2014

Today’s top-5 list attempts to rank the incumbent rams that are most likely to break out in 2014. While May’s draft will play a major part, it can be argued that any success the Rams plan to have in 2014 will hinge on these players’ ability to do just that. Some honorable mentions include cornerback Trumaine Johnson, linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong, and running back Benny Cunningham...

Examining the St. Louis Rams’ need at defensive tackle

Yesterday, we discussed whether the Rams might take a top defensive tackle in this year’s draft. I surmised that it was quite possible, consider the Rams have been openly courting free agent defensive tackles during this free agency period. Although the Rams haven’t signed a defensive tackle yet, it’s quite likely the Rams will still add at least one, maybe two, during this...

Updated so-early-it’s-stupid lineup projections: St. Louis Rams defense

Today’s so-early-it’s-stupid projections bring you March’s look at the starting 2014 defense. As you’ll notice, there haven’t been many significant changes made from our initial projections a month ago, but a different approach to the draft and the onset of free agency have had an impact since then. To be completely honest, if the season started today I’d be a bit nervous...

Rams don't expect a free-agent frenzy

One of the major themes at Rams Park this offseason is developing all those draft picks piled up in the past two years, not making a big splash in free agency. “When you look at free agency, this is the year we’ve targeted probably to be a little less active ... than others,” Rams executive vice president Kevin Demoff said. Then again, the Rams basically have said they...

Rams to hire Gregg Williams as defensive coordinator

According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, the St. Louis Rams are once again hiring Gregg Williams to be their defensive coordinator this season. Jeff Fisher and Williams are long-time friends, and this was a very expected move. Williams was supposed to be their defensive coordinator before the 2012 season, but got caught up in the BountyGate situation that he started with the New Orleans...

Top 5 Rams free agents in Snead/Fisher era

As we creep slowly towards free agency, we thought it might be appropriate to go back and rank the free agent signings of the Fisher/Snead era from both a performance and overall value standpoint. The Rams have limited funds to work with this offseason, so making smart deals for free agent talent will be key if the Rams want to take the next step in 2014. Here’s how their efforts...

Week 17: Back to Seattle Football

Golden Tate wasn't about to let any taunting come back to haunt him.  Throughout today's regular-season finale at Century Link Field, the St. Louis Rams were determined to make Tate pay for his taunting penalty he incurred late in the two teams' last meeting. There was constantly chippy play - a staple of this divisional matchup by now, but today brought things to...

St. Louis’ Kendall Langford Accidentally Whacks A Ref, Gets Ejected

If you’re not watching the Rams-Seahawks game, you’re really missing out on some incredible officiating.

But the Rams aren’t doing themselves any favors, as they’ve racked up so many personal foul penalties...

St. Louis Rams: 2013 Week 13 NFL Power Rankings (#21)

Last week: 26 (+5) Record: 5-6 The Rams have won their last 2 games by 21+ to put them at 5-6, but they’re not as good as their record. The way they’re winning is unsustainable.

The Rams have done that 3 times this season (and one of their other wins came...

St. Louis Rams 2013 Offseason Preview

In Jeff Fisher’s first season as head coach of the St. Louis Rams, many saw the evident challenges that faced the veteran head coach. After a 2-14 season, which capped off a 5-year span in which the Rams went a league-worst 15-65, St. Louis appeared to be more of a project than a team that could have an immediate impact. However, by season’s end, Fisher’s Rams had finished...

Week 15 Review – St. Louis Rams vs. Minneapolis Vikings

  Well, that didn’t go as planned.  The Rams were at home in a game with playoff significance, and they had one job: stop Adrian Peterson. Everything looked OK until 12:34 left in the second quarter. To be exact, at 12:31 AP made a cut that literally took three potential tacklers completely out of the play. No one could stop him from there and he had an 82-yard-touchdown...
