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? Since being drafted eighth overall in 2013, a lot was expected out of Austin. He was a playmaker during his time at West Virginia. He took carries from the backfield, was pulled into running reverses, caught passes and returned...

The ideal 2015 schedule for the St. Louis Rams

Last year around this time, I put together my ideal schedule for the 2014 Rams. In my humble opinion, it was a work of art – I scheduled the Rams’ bye week after a game against Seattle so that the team could rest after a brutal game; I scheduled Denver for Week 17 so that Peyton Manning would be resting; I had the road game against San Diego late in the season so that other road...

By now, you’re well aware of all the Internet pieces out there in which NFL logos are reconfigured to a certain theme: NBA, soccer, Game of Thrones, etc. Well, now we have all 32 butt-themed logos. That’s right, we’ve devolved to this. Only a matter of time before we get genital-themed logos. Anyway, here all 32 of them if you’re interested. I’ve included a picture of the...

The battle for Los Angeles: Carson City Council to vote on Tuesday

The battle for Los Angeles rages on. It would seem that Stan Kroenke, owner of the St. Louis Rams, currently has a leg up on moving to LA. Back in February, Inglewood’s City Council approved plans to build a football stadium on the plot of land where Hollywood Park used to be. After several hours of public comment, a unanimous 5-0 vote by the council approved the $2 billion plan...

Why did Rams running back Tre Mason get kicked off his old high school field?

I don’t know about you, but if I went to high school in the middle of nowhere (no offense) then I would be proud to see an NFL player using his old school’s facilities to train for the next season. Apparently, some folks at St. Louis Rams running back Tre Mason’s alma matter don’t feel the same way… AROUND COVER32 First and 10: The 10 biggest sleepers in the 2015 NFL Draft...

St. Louis Rams: breaking down the RB’s

Tre Mason The St. Louis Rams are in good shape when it comes to running backs. Although the last back to rush for over 1,000 yards was Steven Jackson back in 2012, the running back position is deep and talented. St. Louis currently has six rushers on the roster, though one or two may get cut before the season. Headlining the group is Tre Mason, who impressed during his time as the...

St. Louis Rams set to meet with another quarterback prospect this weekend

After Rams fans watched their former franchise quarterback Sam Bradford leave for Philadelphia and saw Nick Foles take his place, Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said the move wouldn’t deter the team from adding another signal caller before heading into the 2015 season. “It is our intention to draft one,” Fisher said in Arizona at the NFL owners meeting. “The Nick trade has no...

Contrary to popular belief, the Rams are not (potentially) moving...

The St. Louis Rams are relatively lucky when it comes to concussions

As the San Francisco 49ers learned the hard way this offseason, concussions (or even the threat of concussions) are a serious threat to each and every single NFL team. You can talk about training and conditioning all you want, but when we get down to it the number of debilitating injuries any team suffers comes down mostly to luck. If that’s the standard, the St. Louis Rams aren’t...

Rams 7-Round Mock Draft 1.0
