Wale is Grandmaster of the sports reference. No musical artist brings as much wit, depth and knowledge to the craft. For instance, in the recently released ode to the former St. Louis baseball hero, "Albert Pujols," Wale slangs this gem: "John Rocker, Atlanta Bravest knows that I'm awesome/ Bett ... More >>
These guys had it right all along. Steve Spagnuolo, head coach of the St. Louis Rams, gone. Billy Devaney, general manager of the St. Louis Rams, gone. The two architects of this most recent era of Rams football were both fired Monday. It should come as no surprise to anyone, really, co ... More >>
Training camp for NFL franchises is well underway, and the most frantic part of free agency is now past. That's not to say there aren't still moves to be made and players to be signed, but the bulk of the important deals have already happened. We can look around and get at least a fair idea of wh ...

The first round of the 2011 NFL Draft is in the books, and there's plenty to talk about before round two starts up again tonight. Cam Newton was picked first overall and fellated unceasingly by pretty much everyone with a microphone for the rest of the night. The lockout scared a bunch of teams i ... More >>
I feel your pain, anime protagonist. The Rams kicked off the second half of their season Sunday with one of the most frustrating, heartbreaking losses we've seen all year. I don't say that lightly, either, as there have been several games already in 2010 the Rams were perfectly capable of winning ... More >>
Normally by the time the final preseason game rolls around for an NFL team most of the decisions have been made already. Sure, there will be a marginal spot or two, down on the depth chart somewhere, but the big spots have pretty much all been decided in camp and games. Not so with the Rams ... More >>
Georgia Dome: 18-years-old and over the hill. The Atlanta Falcons last week said that the Georgia Dome -- built in 1992 -- is too out-dated to suit the team's future needs. The franchise wants a new, open-air stadium a.s.a.p. and says that ground could be broken on the new facility as soon ... More >>
If you somehow haven't heard yet, the Rams yesterday picked Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Sam Bradford as the team's first pick (and No. 1 overall pick) in the NFL draft. Mizzou linebacker Sean Weatherspoon also went in the first round yesterday as the No. 19 overall pick to the Atlanta Falcons. Cong ... More >>
Vick is currently the backup quarterback in Philadelphia.Michael Vick was a recent guest on 101 ESPN St. Louis in which the disgraced quarterback discussed the possibility of joining the St. Louis Rams. Vick said he's "confident" he could be a "difference maker" as the team attempts to recover f ... More >>
See, it's both a snarky way of making fun of the Rams' ineptitude and a way to remind us of better days. Nice, huh? Well, hopefully this (and by this, of course, I mean the unceremonious 28-0 ass kicking we all witnessed yesterday), will put to an end all that hopeful speculation people come up w ... More >>
You know, I'm not normally real big on preseason football. Unlike spring training in baseball, it's hard to really follow the position battles and the like in football. Guys get shifted around so much even during the season that where a particular guy is playing in a particular game really tells you ... More >>
The most important bit of news over the weekend was the big deal that took place in the NFL, when the Kansas City Chiefs acquired quarterback Matt Cassel and linebacker Mike Vrabel from the New England Patriots for a second-round pick.Now, that's pretty newsworthy just by itself, of course; Cassel w ...

Well, the Rams' 2008 campaign has finally, mercifully, come to an end. And you know what's just a little bit sad about that fact? They actually started to look a little bit like a real team there toward the end. Yes, they lost to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday afternoon. But guess what? The ... More >>
Have you heard the news? According to Bryan Burwell's sappy tear-jerker in the Post-Dispatch this morning, 57 of the 61 players on the Rams roster have signed a petition asking that the team sign head coach Jim Haslett to a contract next season. That's right. Even after yesterday's embarrassin ... More >>
Well, yet another Sunday has passed for the St. Louis Rams, and yet another horrific loss. See, the Rams played the 49ers yesterday. San Francisco, in no uncertain terms, is a crappy football team. Don't get me wrong; the Rams are also a crappy football team, but this was supposed to be their chan ... More >>

Has the NFL gone too far trying to monitor players' off-field antics?
