Three position battles St. Louis Rams fans should be paying attention to

Preseason football is about a month away, and the St. Louis Rams roster is going to start slimming down to the 53-man requirement. With most of the roster already in place, there are only a few positional battles that could influence real playing time. All of the players involved are very talented and it should make the next month very compelling if you are a Rams fan. Here are the...

Quotable Thursday: St. Louis Rams late-round pick could be next E.J. Gaines

Last year, sixth-round draft pick E.J. Gaines burst on to the scene and was easily the Rams’ biggest draft steal. When starter Trumaine Johnson went down with an injury, Gaines, the former Mizzou Tiger, filled in and didn’t play like a rookie. He finished the year with 70 tackles, two interceptions and 14 passes defended. Did the Rams draft another guy that could be this year’s...

Are the St. Louis Rams a cornerback away from being elite on defense?

The NFL Draft is just over two weeks away, and folks like me are beginning to get giddy. Giddy in a way that only the NFL Draft can bring. My time is consumed with reading “expert” opinions about what each team will do come April 30 and watching and re-watching my favorite prospects’ game tape. Oddly enough, no matter how much you think your team will go with a guy, it doesn’t...

Rams' secondary on a mission to cement hard-hitting reputation

ST. LOUIS -- The most improved unit on the Rams' defense might not be the first one that comes to mind. Sure, a resurgent defensive line that contributed heavily to 29 sacks in the last seven games after just one in the first five provided the most obvious impact. But it's clear those talented pass rushers are considerably more effective when a young secondary can offer strong support...

Can reinforcements boost the St. Louis Rams secondary?

The movement to keep the Rams in St. Louis isn’t the only thing gaining traction this week. The Rams are coming off what was their finest defensive performance of the season in Sunday’s 13-10 win against NFC West rival San Francisco, and should by all accounts pick up some further steam from a few defensive reinforcements very soon. It was the front seven that stole the show...

St. Louis Rams are who we thought they were in win vs. San Francisco

For the first time this year, the Rams looked exactly like the team most expected them to be heading into 2014 season. An overwhelming performance from the defensive line helped spell a very mediocre offensive attack as the Rams held on for a 13-10 victory on Sunday in the Bay. Defensive ends Robert Quinn and William Hayes tallied two sacks a piece, and the defensive unit as a whole...

Kaepernick fumbles into end zone to seal Rams' win

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Colin Kaepernick fumbled at the goal line with 2 seconds remaining, and St. Louis sacked the San Francisco quarterback eight times on the way to a 13-10 upset over the 49ers on Sunday.

St. Louis Rams’ to-do list for the second half of the season

As the Rams prepare for a trip to San Francisco this Sunday, the league is in full midseason swing. The Rams, as it stands, are looking up at the rest of the NFC West with a record of 2-5 and about $43 million worth of cap money on injured reserve. It’s not pretty. However, since Monday’s column very blatantly went the doom and gloom route, today’s piece offers some commentary...

Five Things To Watch Against The Eagles

Coming off the bye, the St. Louis Rams had two weeks to step back, evaluate and correct the mistakes in their offense and defense, which have given them a 1-2 record and a share of last place in the NFC West. Whether or not the two weeks was enough time to correct these mistakes remains to be seen. The Philadelphia Eagles will be a good test coming off the rest for the Rams. The...

Grade Day: Report card for week four of preseason

Miami chose to rest 21 of their 22 starters while the Rams rested all 22 of their starters. After last week in which the Rams saw plenty of its starters get injured including the loss of Sam Bradford for the year and Trumaine Johnson for six or more weeks, this might have been a great decision for the Rams moving forward. They can’t afford to lose any more than they already have...

Like last week’s matchup against the Green Bay Packers, this game ended bittersweet. The Rams were able to win 33-14 but lost some key players in the process. The last thing you want to see in preseason is injuries, and they happened to the one person it couldn’t happen to, Sam Bradford. Trumaine Johnson and plenty of others got dinged up. Bradford is done for the year, Johnson’s...

How do you boost a young secondary? For Rams, think young

ST. LOUIS -- The Rams spent their offseason adding young talent rather than finding veterans to bolster an already-young secondary that struggled at times against the pass in 2014. The Rams are counting on the core group of strong safety T.J. McDonald, free safety Rodney McLeod and cornerbacks Janoris Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson to improve with additional experience and time to...

Keep an eye on the secondary during the St. Louis Rams’ first preseason game

Much has been made of the early positives coming out of Rams training camp. Quarterback Sam Bradford’s return to the game after suffering a season-ending knee injury in Week 7 of last year has gone well enough to this point. Free agent signee Kenny Britt looks like a smart addition to the receiving corps and appears to have become a catalyst in the on-going maturation of Brian...
