    Step Off, Arizona Cardinals: Kurt Warner Rightfully Belongs to the St. Louis Rams

    Hey, who remembers Kurt Warner? You know, that hunky, God-fearing quarterback Rams coach Dick Vermeil scrounged up from a Iowa grocery store in 1998? The guy who became the starter in 1999 after the Rams starting quarterback left the field in agony? The backup who put the team on his back, won a S ... More >>

    The Problem With the Rams, Revealed at Last!

    It was the trainer. Yep, you heard me. The trainer was the reason the Rams only won a single game in the 2009-2010 season. Not the impotent offense, not the porous defense, not the coaching, not the players. It was the trainer. After his first season as head coach of the St. Louis Rams, St ... More >>

    Game Notes: Saints 28, Rams 23 -- The Great Leap Forward

    Okay, Rams fans, now you should be excited. ​Two weeks ago, after the Rams beat the Detroit Lions for their first victory in over a year, I played the role of buzzkill, trying to explain why it wasn't all that encouraging the Rams won.

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 ...

    Show Review: Mr. Lif with Willie Evans and Plan B, June 4 at the Gramophone

    Okay, so the crowd wasn't exactly what I expected at last night's Mr. Lif show. Given the political and sometimes "radical" nature of his music, I thought the audience would be more -- shall we say -- diverse. Nonetheless, Lif has a message in his music, and if 30-something hipsters (mostly white) a ... More >>

    The NFL's (Tom) Brady Bill

    So the NFL owners yesterday voted to make the NFL just a little bit shittier. They added four more rules, and modified one other, and I have to say, the modification is the worst of the group. All of the rule changes, of course, deal with the way that players can hit each other. Two are fairly ... More >>
