Tyler Holt: Not To Be Confused With Torry Holt

Tyler Holt burst onto the scene this season at a time when the Indians need him. With injuries and inconsistent play from veterans Nick Swisher and Ryan Raburn, the young outfielder will play a vital role down the stretch if the team is to stay in contention. Although not entirely off the radar, Holt certainly was not viewed as a player who would be important to the Indians in 2014...

St. Louis Rams legend Torry Holt is worried about Tavon Austin

St. Louis Rams preseason color analyst Torry Holt said Thursday that Tavon Austin has been “very quiet” throughout training camp. The 23-year-old Austin, who St. Louis selected eighth overall out of West Virginia in 2013, recorded a 7 on his Wonderlic test and claimed the team’s playbook “looked like Spanish.” Subsequently, Austin only caught 40 balls for 418 yards and...

NBC & Pro Football Talk debuting new Prime Numbers series

Russell Allen’s departure has no impact on the Jaguars’ draft

When I say Gene Smith, what are some of the first things that jump into your mind? You may think of, wide receiver Torry Holt, offensive lineman Eben Britton, quarterback Blaine Gabbert or even offensive guard Will Rackley. Even wide receiver Justin Blackmon may be in your thoughts and was a “blockbuster” player Smith brought onto the roster before his departure. While Blackmon...

Power Rankings: St. Louis Rams move up in offseason midpoint edition

Not all of the moves have been made, but most of them are in the books. Players have come and gone, as teams tinker with their rosters, looking to fill holes and upgrade in key positions. Some have tried to make a big splash, while others have been more conservative. Some have simply tried to retain their own players, while others have gone about overhauling a big chunk of their...

Twitter Tuesday: St. Louis Rams somehow let Kenny Britt wear Torry Holt’s old number

The St. Louis Rams officially signed wide receiver Kenny Britt yesterday. We’ve had plenty of coverage here regarding the signing, including this, this and this, but ultimately, no matter what our stance on the signing, we all accepted that Britt was going to be part of the team and that we should root for the guy to turn his career around. But then I saw this, and I got kind of...

But if we did that, this article would be no fun. The Rams have had some really good success when the team the team was in Los Angeles, but the move may have provided some bad karma or something when it comes...

Shield your eyes as we unveil the worst wide receiver the St. Louis Rams have ever drafted

Yesterday, we unveiled the best wide receiver the Rams have ever drafted.

Who’s the best wide receiver the St. Louis Rams have ever drafted?

Over the past couple weeks, we’ve examined the best quarterback and the best running back ever drafted by the Rams. The answers – Norm Van Brocklin and Eric Dickerson – are both great football players, but neither guy ever came close to playing for the Rams in St. Louis.

Many more wide receiver debates coming to the Hall of Fame

Last year, when Cris Carter was selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his sixth year as a finalist, it seemed to break up a bit of a logjam at the wide receiver position. This year, another wide receiver who had been waiting for years, Andre Reed, was selected in his eighth year as a finalist. But the Hall of Fame debates at the wide receiver position have just begun.

Torry Holt Gives a Whole New Meaning to Flipping Someone the Bird

Oh, the things that you find on the internet...Remember Torry Holt? The man was one of the best wide receivers in the game back in the day, and a part of the 'Greatest Show on Turf.' During his career he pulled in 920 receptions for 13,382 yards and 74 touchdowns. Along the way he likely got just a few jammed fingers; maybe even a few broken ones. For some reason he hasn...

One St. Louis Ram who needs to the see the field more in 2014

The Rams wide receiver unit underwhelmed yet again in 2013. As our Evan Glantz pointed out yesterday, the Rams haven’t had a 1,000-yard receiver since Torry Holt in 2007. In fact, no Rams wide receiver has eclipsed even 700 yards since the 2008 season, which was again accomplished last by Holt. The second-year receivers, Brian Quick and Chris Givens had mostly disappointing second...
