Since the forced departure of Chief Illiniwek in February 2007, the University of Illinois has been mascot-less. While their Big Ten rivals have fielded ancient Greek warriors, oversized and suspiciously cuddly hawks, badgers and wildcats, not to mention whatever the hell Ohio State's Brutus Buckeye ... More >>
Two dudes in their mid-twenties have been charged with breaking into the home of Rams tight-ends coach Rob Boras and stealing electronics, video games and jewelry -- jewelry that included Boras' NFC Championship ring and three gold NCAA rings. The crooks have been arrested, but the rings are still n ... More >>
As the general election approaches, candidates try harder than ever to court voters (except not really in Missouri). If you're like Daily RFT, you've grown weary of the debates and heated verbal sparring. Back in ye olde days, when brains fell short, candidates seeking public office courted the publ ... More >>
The first two weeks of the NFL season were relatively encouraging for the St. Louis Rams. Under new coach Jeff Fisher, the Rams were competitive in week one, losing a tight game to the extremely talented (and extraordinarily nasty), Detroit Lions, then pulled out a close contest against the Washingt ...

I have to say, yesterday lived up to my full expectations as a football fan. I went in hoping to see two tough, hotly contested games, and neither game disappointed. Neither the NFC nor AFC Championship game was decided by more than a single score, and neither one gave fans any chance of turning ... More >>

The man who once got so pissed off, he tore the helmet off a guy's head and flung it across the field? Oh yeah, that Kyle Turley ... More >>
A frustrated Mike Martz.Former St. Louis Rams head coach is having some trouble installing his offense with the Chicago Bears, reports The Onion. Per the magazine: Bears players and coaches spent their first day of training camp Monday waiting for new offensive coordinator Mike Martz to install t ... More >>
Sasha GreyLike "Entourage," a once-funny show gone downhill in the past couple years, the Bears are hoping their 2010 season is trending upward. While the HBO show added crossover adult film star Sasha Grey to its cast, the Bears added a provocateur of their own in Mike Martz, the offensive m ... More >>
Martz caught in a "Lovie affair" in Chicago. Former St. Louis Rams head coach Mike Martz interviewed with the Chicago Bears this weekend for the role of offensive coordinator. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Bears head coach Lovie Smith is pushing hard for the team to hire Martz. Before takin ... More >>
Cue the chintzy beach scene with Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith running -- arms opened wide -- toward Mike Martz. The men embrace on the banks of Lake Michigan. In the background is downtown Chicago and on the southern horizon -- Soldier's Field.
Let's face it, folks; it's tough being a St. Louis Rams fan these days. Sure, they took the Jacksonville Jaguars into overtime yesterday before losing, but the Jags aren't exactly the '85 Bears or anything. They're 0-6, the offense is just flat-out awful, the defense is routinely getting beaten u ... More >>
Maybe it's because it's Good Friday, or maybe it's because of this week's cover story, or a rerun of Married...With Children we caught the other day (the one where Al sells his soul to the Devil in exchange for taking the Chicago Bears to the Super Bowl) but Unreal has been a bit preoccupied with de ...

This is just too good not to share with the general public. Remember the Chicago Bears "Super Bowl Shuffle" back in 1985? Well, the Bears weren't the only NFL team to create and produce a horrific rap video. Our beloved Los Angeles St. Louis Rams also had a turn. Yes that's Hall-of-Famer Eric Dicker ... More >>
(Via Stereogum) When you were thirteen, what were you doing? Me, I listened to a lot of R.E.M., had poofy hair and braces and wrote angsty, depressed journal entries about how terrible my life was and how Spanish class sucked. But kids these days -- man, they're just so sophisticated. Take Jeff Twee ... More >>
'Tis the season to give thanks, you know. And you want to know what I'm thankful for this year? I'm most thankful for Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher and Tyna Robertson. Because this kind of shit is what makes it easy to come up with something to write about every day. See, Mr. Urlacher, who ... More >>
He was hyped by optimistic, shortsighted pundits as the "2008 fantasy football sleeper at wide receiver," now the promising fantasy career of Rams rookie Donnie Avery has officially flamed out. It was a brief, meteoric rise to prominence that lasted just five weeks before ending with a whimper yeste ... 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 >>
