Random ramsdom: Looking for a turnaround

Scott Rovak-USA TODAY Sports

The Rams welcome the 49ers to town tomorrow night. Will the team have its head on straight, or will the pressure of Sundays beat-down be too much to recover from?

Rams insist they've put Dallas behind them, and are focused on 49ers

For a young team, a game like the one in Dallas last Sunday can be hard to recover from. The players start to question whether or not they can actually be a good football team. Losing can become a familiar feeling. It's important that this young team goes out Thursday and establishes a different identity.

Rams must learn to run the football

Daryl Richardson, Isaiah Pead, Benny Cunningham, Zac Stacy, it doesn't matter. The Rams must get the run game going. Mike Clay highlighted something yesterday that should be eye-opening to Jeff Fisher and his staff. The Rams have passed the ball 111 times in the past two games, and have only ran the ball 28 times. That means the Rams have passed the ball 79% of the time in the last two games. At some point - losing or not - you have to settle down and stop shooting yourself in the foot.


Injured Rams return to practice

Everyone but Rodger Saffold and William Hayes practiced in full yesterday. I get the sense that Jeff Fisher isn't fooling around this week. It's a short week, and that means a very limited schedule for making adjustments. It's likely that everyone on the team needed some work. It's interesting to note that Daryl Richardson was listed as a full participant. Was his foot so bad Sunday that he couldn't play anymore, yet good enough now to practice? It seems like an odd way to handle the injury. We will have to see how well Richardson performs Thursday to know for sure.

Will 49ers fall apart or snap back this week

The 49ers feel like a team on the brink of imploding. However, often moments like this can be a catalyst for significant growth. Which will it be for the 49ers? Rams fans will certainly hope that the 49ers are about to have flashbacks to the Mike Singletary era.

The 49ers players certainly don't seem too pleased with their performances so far. In fact, a certain 49er quarterback was especially rude and non-curtious to a certain Rams NFL "insider". Robert Quinn will have to be sure to remind him to mind his manners.


5 bold predictions about Thursdays game

A very 49er-slanted take on the game; however, if the Rams continue to start slow and commit mental mistakes there's no reason that any of the statements in this article won't come true. In fact, if the Rams continue to play the way they did in Dallas, it will be much worse. Dick Vermeil use to use the analogy, "you can't ease into a street fight", and that seems to be the opposite of the Rams attitude lately. Rams fans hope this will be the week everything changes.

Rams condemn Ty Nsekhe's remarks about military

Nsekhe's remarks about U.S. soldiers were certainly not well thought out. Even though he is no longer a Ram, St. Louis is still the last team he was associated with, so the Rams will have to deal with the fallout of his comments. In all reality, situations like this always happen due to some form of incompetence. Nsekhe should have never responded to the user who prompted his ill-timed response. The user may have said something Neshke didn't agree with, but why respond with something controversial that cannot be explained in 142 characters to a large audience of American citizens? All the way around it was a very dumb thing to do. Unfortunately for Nysehke, that may be the end of his NFL career.

Chris Long is not a fan of overseas games

Chris Long speaks the truth about the London contests in this new ESPN article on overseas NFL games. Logistically there is a lot to think about here, and as soon as you open that box the wormhole just goes deeper and deeper. Overseas games certainly weren't good for the Rams last year.

Will London ever have an NFL team?
