    NFL Insiders Trade Conflicting Rumors On Rams Moving to Los Angeles

    There's not much sunshine in Ramsland these days, and that's only partially connected to the team's horrible, no good, very bad tendency to collapse at the worst possible moments. This past Monday's game against the San Francisco 49ers was particularly painful. The Rams rookie quarterback scuttled ... More >>

    Michael Sam Cut from St. Louis Rams Roster, Practice Squad

    If Michael Sam is going to be the first out gay player to play in the NFL, it probably won't be with the St. Louis Rams. Coach Jeff Fisher called Sam last weekend and met with him Sunday to tell him he's one of four players cut from the Rams' 53-player roster. "It was a football decision just like ... More >>

    With Sam Bradford Gone, St. Louis Wonders: Who Cursed the Rams?

    Have you heard? The St. Louis Rams are cursed -- cuuuurrrsed! Indeed, quarterback Sam Bradford's season-ending knee injury on Saturday has sports journalists and fans contemplating the supernatural to explain both the Ram's bad fortune and Bradford's ever-so-delicate ligaments. Bernie Miklasz's ... More >>

    Four Reasons The Rams are Perfect for HBO's Hard Knocks

    There's little chance HBO's camera crews will set foot inside the Rams' Earth City practice facility this offseason. It's a shame. The 2014 Rams would make the perfect subject for the cable channel's annual documentary series Hard Knocks, a program that stands alone in delivering the kind of access- ... More >>

    St. Louis Rams Player Posts NSFW Sex Video on Instagram (And No, It's Not Michael Sam)

    While the media spent all weekend covering Michael Sam's post-NFL draft celebratory kiss with boyfriend Vito Cammisano, another story about a St. Louis Rams player's PDA has received nowhere near the attention it deserves. In a hilarious social-media blunder, Rams wide receiver Kenny Britt posted a ... More >>

    Ty Nsekhe, Former Rams Player, Disses Soldiers Because it "Doesn't Take Much Skill To Kill"

    Pro football player Ty Nsekhe was already having a rough summer before he put his cleats in his mouth via Twitter. Cut from the Rams practice squad in late August, Nsekhe apparently used his newfound free time to jump into a Twitter exchange Monday that culminated in the offensive tackle spouting ... More >>

    The Ram Defense By the Numbers

    The final game of the 2012 NFL regular season is upon us, as the Rams will travel to Seattle this week, into the maw of that nightmare the Seahawks call a homefield advantage. It's been a good season for the Rams, to be honest. Better than I personally expected. I wasn't particularly sanguine a ... More >>

    The Rams' Remaining Road

    Following their dramatic, exciting, and way too close for comfort win over the Buffalo Bills last week, the St. Louis Rams find themselves a .500 football team (sort of; the tie with San Francisco is really a pain when one is attempting to cook up a narrative), and still -- still! -- in contention f ...

    Three Keys to Victory: Rams at Bills, 9th December 2012

    The Rams travel to the frozen tundra of Buffalo today to take on the Bills of Chan Gailey and Ryan Fitzpatrick, along with their patented Doomsday Running Game. Hmm. Okay, that isn't working. I was trying to go for an NFL Films kind of feel there, but I'm not sure even Harry Kalas (bless that m ... More >>

    The Rams Play To a Beautiful Tie

    You know, I have never been on the Jeff Fisher bandwagon. From the beginning, I thought it was an uninspired hire by the Rams, bringing in an overrated coach who probably won't let the team be quite as mind-meltingly awful as they've been the past couple seasons but isn't going to win the big one an ...

    Rams Lose Large in London

    The bad news is this: the Rams lost yesterday, and lost big. They looked flat-out awful. The Patriots put an old style same-old-sorry-ass-Rams beatdown on Jeff Fisher's squad. The final score was 45-7, a score more appropriate for a team's low point in a sports comedy than an actual, real life NFL g ... More >>

    The Rams' Offense Can't Get the Job Done

    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 ...

    Top Five: The Five Greatest Moments in St. Louis Rams History

    The 2012 season will kick off this weekend for the St. Louis Rams, as they take on the Detroit Lions in the burned-out ruins of an abandoned auto plant, kind of a Thunderdome situation. It's going to be awesome. Okay, so the game will actually take place at Ford Stadium in Detroit, which is onl ... More >>

    A Not-So-Fond Farewell to Jason Smith

    The Jason Smith era in St. Louis has come to an end, as the Rams dealt the former first round pick to the New York Jets yesterday afternoon. It's a disappointing end, to be sure, for the second overall selection just three years ago, and for the team that drafted him. Poor performance has been ... More >>

    Rams: Same Sorry-Ass Team in Jeff Fisher's Debut

    The Indianapolis Colts had just scored their third touchdown of the game -- on the way to a 38-3 rout of the Rams on Sunday -- when Fox broadcaster Andrew Siciliano turned to his partner in the booth, Marshall Faulk, and delivered a sermon of sorts about how important it is for St. Louis fans to pac ...

    NFL Draft Round 1:The Rams Trade Down, Load Up on Picks

    Yesterday I wrote about the options for the Rams at number six in the NFL draft.

    The Rams' Draft Options: Who Does The Team Take First Tonight?

    The NFL Draft is tonight, coming to you live from New York City. This promises to be one of the least interesting drafts in recent memory, at least at the very top; there is literally no doubt in anyone's minds about who the first two picks will be. The Indianapolis Colts will begin their rebui ...
