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 >>
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 >>

Yet he's schedule ... More >>
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 >>
commons.wikimedia.orgBill Belichick is still the smartest coach in the NFL. He doesn't make many plays on the field, though. It wasn't supposed to end like this for the New England Patriots. It wasn't supposed to be this way at all. They were the unbeatable playoff monster, the team that put up 3 ... More >>
commons.wikimedia.orgI'll be honest: I really only put this picture here to help me remember how to spell Asomugha while writing this article. It isn't very often that one of the top two players at a given position becomes available in the NFL, but that's just what has happened with cornerback Nn ... More >>

Oh yeah, that Kyle Turley ... More >>
Ignore Chad's Chicken Little impression. The sky is not falling on fans of the St. Louis Rams.While the franchise has already moved three times (from Cleveland to LA in 1945, from LA to Anaheim in 1979 and to St. Louis in 1995) it is definitely going to stay put this time around. Here's why:
After 134 years, New Orleans' P&J Oyster Company has ceased operations because of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig catastrophe. According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the company will not close entirely. They'll shuck as oysters are available, even if they have to ship them from the west coast. " ... More >>
A chip cast in favor of the Rams could pay off at 100 to 1. The Rams began mini-camp last week with the No. 1 pick of the NFL draft in Sam Bradford. And sports bookies the world over are now expecting the Rams to return a.s.a.p. to their former glory, right? Err, wrong. Yesterday the SportingNews ... More >>
Limbaugh: Said to favor a "conservative" game. Likes plays to develop on the right -- far right.

You know, if you had told me just a couple of years ago that signing Ron Bartell was going to be of paramount importance for the Rams to have any chance of being competitive, I probably would have laughed in your face.
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 >>
