St. Louis Rams news
The St. Louis Rams bye week is over. Practice resumed yesterday as they get ready to take on the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. It's a tall order, but it would be a great way for the Rams to turn their season around after a very disappointing start.
Rod Hood Will Play This Week - The Rams' depth at cornerback is a little frightening. Rod Hood is probably the best of the bunch, and he has not played since 2009. He and Justin King will most likely be the starters this week. Hopefully, one of the younger, less experienced corners, culled from the ranks of undrafted rookies, can step up this season, but I think those are unreasonable expectations.
How can Rams slow down Packers QB Aaron Rodgers? - Um...uh...well...it's not going to be easy. The prescription calls for zone defense to limit the yards after catch and an aggressive front four. Offensively, the Rams will need to stay on the field and score points. This is really all about limiting damage and not getting embarrassed.
Roski retools Los Angeles NFL site plan - An interesting turn in the LA stadium race, this time from Ed Roski, who is developing a stadium outside of LA in the City of Industry. Roski is offering to hand over the property he owns to a team that relocates there. The team would finance the stadium construction, likely owning it, and then sell Roski a share of the team at market value. That plan is far more in line with something that Kroenke might be more inclined to look at with the potential to own a stadium and retain majority interest in the team.
Ranking the NFC West quarterbacks - Who is the best quarterback in the division right now? Why, it's Alex Smith, playing in the last year of his contract with the 49ers. The worst quarterback play, statistically speaking, in the division is Sam Bradford. That was supposed to be reversed.
