Robert Quinn and Aaron Donald’s team won the stupid Pro Bowl

I really hope you weren’t like me last night. I watched about an hour’s worth of the Pro Bowl, and now there is nothing I can do to get that hour of my life back.

Robert Quinn and the Rams are creeping up the sack leaderboard

By now, we all know how pitiful the Rams’ pass rush was early on this season. The team compiled just one sack in its first five games, the worst such total through five games by any team in NFL history since sacks became an official stat in 1982. It’s probably no coincidence that the Rams went 1-4 in those games with a -49 point differential. Defensive end Robert Quinn, who set...
