In a Shocking Turn of Events, The Media Has Founded Daryl Richardson: Pro Football Talk

BREAKING: Isaiah Pead will not start in Week 1’s matchup against the Cardinals. As a result, the Rams’ 2nd leading rusher in 2012 will take the starting snaps on September 8th. It’s news.

Experts who had previously deemed Pead the ‘go to’ guy in St. Louis watched some tape. It’s weird too, because their opinions seem to be changing…




Over/Under for the Rams in 2013: Ramblin Fan

From Sam Bradford’s yards and passing TD’s to Janoris Jenkins’ INT totals, Kelton Brooks at Ramblin Fan has your over/under scenarios for 2013. What do you think?

The Lions Cut Jahvid Best: NFL.com

The future was so bright for the [still young] Lions’ RB. Concussion problems have plagued him over the past two seasons, and the Detroit Lions have released him as a result. "He was the consummate teammate and always did everything asked of him," said the team’s GM, Martin Mayhew. Headlines regarding concussion issues in life after football are saddening. Here’s wishing the best to Best [I didn’t intend on that happening…seriously!] in life, whether it be in the NFL or otherwise.

DeSean Jackson Partners Up With S-N-Double-O-P: NFL.com

"Make ‘em say uhh." "Microphone checka, swingin’ sword lecture." "I need more snare in my headphones." "I spit hot fire." DeSean Jackson didn’t rap any of these lyrics. Sadly though, he did drop some. This is what it sounded like. Also, who the hell is Snoop Dogg? I’m only familiar with one Snoop, and he looks like this. And though the video was cut short, you should know that Jackson dropped the mic, and the ball, at the goal line….no score.

Pete Prisco Ranks the NFL’s Head Coaches: CBS Sports

For most, the Rams have been deemed a middle of the road team who poses little threat and get’s the Rodney Dangerfield "no respect" treatment. It is, though, a possibility that both sides of the ball creep into "Top 10" territory in 2013. Jeff Fisher is well-respected in the league. How does he stack up?

I’ll Be At the Rams’ Home Opener…It’s Going To Be Boring: National Football Post

By now, you’ve probably read an article or 2…hundred that have the Rams as 50-1 odds to win the Super Bowl. I’m not even sure that ever changes. It’s just a safe bet to place them there. Specifically in regards to Week 1’s matchup against the Cardinals, they’ve now got over/under figures for your wagering pleasure. Apparently, it’ll be the second lowest scoring game of the week. Go figure…

A 400-pound player was one of the few things that earned the Rams a headline this offseason. So much for that…




Damn, It Feels Good To Be a Long Snapper: St. Louis Post Dispatch

You may not have heard about it. Heck, I’m not sure I did. At any rate, the Rams signed long snapper - Jake McQuaide - to an extension earlier this month. Jim Thomas notes how the deal is beneficial for both parties.


Being able to have the first overall pick is nice. It - more than likely - comes as a result of an embarrassing season, though. No one will want to lose the most games in 2013, but the team that does is going to have the opportunity to draft Jadeveon Clowney. He does these kind of things…poor little man in blue and yellow.


You know how college football players don’t get paid, even though they earn their respective schools boatloads of money? Good. Enjoy the 2015 version of the game featuring players who have no names and numbers!

Off the Turf...

The Open Championship Tees Off On Thursday: ESPN

If there’s such a thing as a golf expert, they’re providing their picks on the winner of the Open Championship at Muirfield, which tees off bright and early on Thursday morning.

The Lakers Could Be Pretty Good In 2014: Sports Illustrated

The NBA commissioner - David Stern - didn’t see fit for the Lakers to acquire Chris Paul in 2011, so he exercised the oh-so-impressive right to veto. Let’s see if he does so again in 2014, when the Lakers try to acquire Lebron James and Carmelo Anthony.
