Disappointing Rams Receiver Has Looks of Fantasy Sleeper

St. Louis Rams receivers have not been very kind to fantasy football owners recently, as the position has been a disappointment for anyone who has taken a receiver since 2007.That year, Torry Holt became the last Ram to accumulate over 90 catches and 1,000 yards, with his final stat line adding up to 93 catches for 1,189 yards and seven touchdowns. Since then, no receiver has even...

Rams Pre-Training Camp Preview: Wide Receivers

There used to be a time when the St. Louis Rams’ passing attack was one of the best in the league. Kurt Warner would sling rainbow passes downfield to Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt, sometimes Ricky Proehl and Marshall Faulk. They would drive down the field, score a touchdown and repeat all afternoon. It was around that time Enron was still in business and everyone thought frosted...

Top 5 St. Louis Rams wide receivers on the current roster

Today’s top-5 was inspired by Stedman Bailey’s ridiculous one-handed backflip catch that has gone viral since being posted yesterday. It got me thinking: How do all the Rams wide receivers stack up against one another in terms of talent and usefulness to the team? Ever since Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce moved on in the late 2000s, the Rams have struggled to employ a dominant wide...

Four former St. Louis Rams among 26 Pro Football Hall of Fame semifinalists

You already knew the Greatest Show on Turf-era Rams were one of the most talented teams in NFL history. Yesterday, the Pro Football Hall of Fame validated what we already knew by nominating Kurt Warner, Orlando Pace, Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt as semifinalists for the class of 2015. Strangely, all four of those perennial Pro Bowlers retired after the 2009 season, and this is their...

WR Tim Brown makes the Hall of Fame semi-finals again.

Tim brown has made the list of 26 semi finalists for induction into the NFL Hall of Fame yet again. Will this be his year? He would like to think so and all of us wholeheartedly agree with him. No WR is more deserving than Tim Brown, if for no other reason than the fact that he put up his mind boggling stats with a slew of terrible QBs throwing him the ball. As a reminder (as if...

Raiders draft prospects: Wide receiver Rashad Greene

Name: Rashad Greene WR, Florida St. Height: 6’ Weight: 180lbs Analysis: Prolific, highly accomplished receiver on an elite team. Greene may leave Tallahassee with the most receiving yards, and finish the top 2 in catches in ACC history. Names like Torry Holt and Sammy Watkins are far down this vaunted list. That should be all one would need to know. Yet, Greene doesn’t gain national...

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...
