Top 5 St. Louis Rams position battle leaders at this point

This week’s Top 5 list is essentially an exercise in futility, given the fact that its contents could change dramatically when the dust has settled after the Rams second preseason game against the Packers on Saturday afternoon. Keep that in mind while reading, as it’s still early in the roster-shaping process. However, in the interest of generating conversation, today’s Top...

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...

Top-5 most underappreciated St. Louis Rams

For today’s Top 5, I decided to take a shot at ranking the most underappreciated Rams as the team wraps up OTAs and heads into training camp. Some of these guys will be fighting for their roster spots in upcoming months, but their contributions in 2013 shouldn’t go unremembered. Let’s get started. 5. Defensive end Eugene Sims (with a nod to William Hayes as well) For as much...

Twitter Tuesday: St. Louis Rams get into the World Cup spirit

Unless you really hate soccer or you live under a rock the size of Texas, you were probably parked in front of a TV yesterday evening to watch the U.S. exorcise its demons against Ghana, the team that eliminated the Stars and Stripes from the past two World Cups. The St. Louis Rams and a bunch of its players caught World Cup fever as well. Here are a few select tweets. ICYMI, the...

Aaron Donald and Lamarcus Joyner: Immediate Impact Players

The St. Louis Rams chose to bolster their defense with their 13th and 41st overall selections in the 2014 draft. With the selections of Aaron Donald and Lamarcus Joyner, the Rams are making an effort to have a top-10 defense—one to compete with the likes of the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers. Both players are slated to make an immediate impact on Gregg Williams’ defense...

Post-draft so-early-it’s-stupid defensive lineup projections for the St. Louis Rams

On Monday we took a post-draft look at the projected Day 1 starting lineup for the Rams’ offense in 2014, so today we’ll wrap up our projections by taking a look at the defense. The most glaring change you’ll notice from our March attempt is that I’ve shifted the base formation from a standard 4-3 into the Nickel. You’ll have to keep reading to find out why, but oh hey...

Which NFL Veterans Are in Danger of Losing Their Starting Jobs to 2014 Rookies?

NFL teams use the draft as a means to replace veterans who recently departed in free agency, as well as fill key needs. It’s a cheaper alternative to spending big bucks on players who might only have a few years of above-average production remaining in their careers. We saw this with the San Francisco 49ers last season, who let Dashon Goldson depart in free agency only to replace...

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...

Kendall Langford fined $7,875 after Week 17 ejection

Last Sunday’s Seahawks-Rams game was a chippy affair and the NFL has fined four players for actions during the game. PFT confirmed with the league that Rams defensive tackle Kendall Langford was fined $7,875 after getting ejected from the game. Langford was arguing a personal foul called on linebacker Alec Ogletree when he gestured with his hand and made contact with an official...

5 things learned from Seattle's 27-9 win over Rams

The celebration on the field was muted because the Seattle Seahawks don't want winning a division title to be the apex of their season. But there was an overwhelming sense of accomplishment in Seattle's locker room after the Seahawks knocked off the St. Louis Rams 27-9 on Sunday to wrap up the NFC West title and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

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...

The St. Louis Rams totally imploded during Week 17 by committing an absurd amount of penalties against the Seattle Seahawks. During the third quarter of their game on Sunday, they committed an unnecessary roughness penalty and three unsportsmanlike conduct penalties on the same drive.

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. It’s been a chippy game, no doubt, with Rams players seemingly still not over that whole Golden Tate taunting thing (Tate has been lit up left and right all afternoon). 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. Since 1989, there have been 25 instances of a team winning by 17 or more despite losing the first down battle by 9 or more. The Rams have done that 3 times this season (and one of their other wins came...

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...
