Vote Zac Stacy For Pepsi Next Rookie of the Week: NFL.com
It may have not been the most memorable "coming out party" for Rams’ rookie RB Zac Stacy, but it was good enough to be recognized…and not just by the fan base. The Rams’ running game has left a lot to be desired in the early portion of 2013. If you liked what you saw last Sunday, do the man a favor…vote for him!
Running QB’s Might Want to Reconsider: CBS Sports
Star QB’s like Cam Newton, RG3, and Colin Kaepernick made a name for themselves in the NFL as a result of their ability to make things happen [with their legs] when a play breaks down. It’s made mobile QB’s more desirable, and the good ones are true difference makers for their teams. Pat Kirwan has noticed the slow start for the three aforementioned QB’s and thinks they might want to consider airing it out a little more often.

Texans Head Coach - Gary Kubiak - Makes A Tough Decision: Yahoo! Sports
Matt Schaub has managed to keep his starting job, and the beleaguered Houston quarterback vowed to turn things around this week. ''I need to be better, and I'll be the first to admit that," Schaub says.
St. Louis Rams rookie Tavon Austin received a game ball for his efforts as a punt returner last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars though a simple glance at the box score would leave most wondering why.

Stacy - who’s already been deemed the starter for Week 6 - took a breather on Wednesday, as he looks to heal some soreness in his ribs. Defense End, William Hayes, was back out on the field [on a limited basis], and could soon return from a knee injury. Having both on the field on Sunday would be good news for the Rams.
This figures to be as difficult a challenge as Bradford will face in the passing game. Watt is the master of the batted pass, and Bradford has had issues in that area. Don’t expect much from Bradford & Co. this week.
How about a little Q&A with a guy who has as many touchdowns as Demaryius Thomas, Vernon Davis, Victor Cruz, and….Calvin Johnson?

If Bradford continues to look horrible in 2013, wonder if the Rams would look at Sanchez, whose best years were with Brian Schottenheimer— Aaron Nagler (@Aaron_Nagler) October 8, 2013
