Are the St. Louis Rams setting up Nick Foles for failure?

A couple of years ago Nick Foles broke the NFL’s record for touchdown to interception ratio for a single season.

Rams Need To Use Or Lose Tavon Austin

The St. Louis Rams need to make a decision about Tavon Austin, and they need to make it before the upcoming NFL Draft. Should they keep or trade Austin away?

WATCH: Tavon Austin Makes the Redskins Look Foolish

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin has been somewhat of a bust on offense thus far throughout his young career. Coming into Sunday’s action, the former first-round pick had tallied just 24 receptions for less than 200 yards in 11 games this season.

How a missed FG return was almost disaster for Rams

The end of the half in the 49ers/Rams game was certainly an odd one. San Francisco missed a 55-yard field goal attempt as time expired, and the Rams put Tavon Austin in the end zone to return the kick if it came up short. It did, and disaster almost struck. The refs ruled that Austin got tackled but the ball had been outside of the end zone when he was contacted, so the fact that...
