St. Louis Rams Players Compared to Game of Thrones Cast

WPA Pool

Warning: There may be spoilers in this article if you are not fully caught up with the TV series.

Jeff Fisher - Tommen Baratheon

The new leader at the helm; Tommen shows promise as king, but still needs to solidify his worth. Kings Landing -- The Edward Jones Dome -- was in shambles during Joffrey's reign (Linehan, Haslett, Spags) and Tommen may be just the guy they need to turn things around.

Offense

Sam Bradford - Jon Snow

Snow has become the most important character on this show. Like the Rams, the Night's Watch relies heavily on Jon Snow's sword and leadership. He has the ability to revitalize a struggling group of men on The Wall.

Zac Stacy - Ghost

Ghost is Jon Snow's direwolf. He is not released nearly enough, but when they do let this dog out of the cage, he's a beast.

Tavon Austin - Prince Oberyn Martell (The Red Viper of Dorne)

Smooth. Swift. Elusive. Cockiness is the ultimate demise of the Red Viper. Let's hope that's not the case for the Blue Viper (Tavon).

Jared Cook - Brienne of Tarth

Brienne is built like a linebacker but can move like a cornerback. Being the only one compared to a girl might seem like a knock on Cook, but Brienne is no lady. She is lethal, as is Jared Cook.

Jake Long - Sandor Clegane (The Hound)

The Hound is a big, skilled fighter that wouldn't lose too many battles. If he ever teamed up with his brother -- the Mountain -- they could be lethal. Fortunately for us... Well, keep reading.

Greg Robinson - Gregor Clegane (The Mountain)

The Mountain is the Hound's evil brother -- though we won't give G-Rob the "evil" title -- he is still built the same way and could be a dynamic pairing with The Hound on the left side of the line. Plus, they pretty much have the same first name.

ICYMI, here is the actor who plays Gregor lifting a shit ton of weight.

Scott Wells - Varys

This one just seemed to fit. Both are seasoned veteran's sitting on the "small council" and are leaders in their own right. The pudgy bald guy look is too perfect to pass up.

Roger Saffold - Hodor

A big body with top end potential. Has shown he can hold his own but not with any regularity. Similar to Hodor, Saffold should be more effective in combat but has yet to do so consistently.

Barrett Jones - Samwell Tarly

I did this one just for fun. There's a slim chance Jones will start -- let alone play much -- but he might be my favorite player on the Rams, which is why he deserves the honor of being Samwell Tarly.

Defense

Robert Quinn - Khal Drogo

No brainer. Drogo is built like an ox and is feared by all, just like Robert Quinn. They have similar build and are a great combination of speed and size.

Michael Brockers - Tormund

I'm not a huge Tormund fan, but they're both massive and rock an awesome beard. There's not much that gets in the way of Tormund... he could definitely lay a hit similar to Brockers against the Bears.

Aaron Donald - Robert Baratheon

Robert Baratheon is a little rough around the edges and loves to scrum it up. Like Robert, Donald will earn his keep in the trenches of battle.

Chris Long - Eddard Stark

It's unfortunate that Ned was not around longer in this series, but both him and Long carry themselves in a similar manner. They are born leaders and battle with a sense of pride. If there's one guy I'd go into battle with, it's Ned Stark. Same is true with Chris Long.

James Laurinaitis - Tyrion Lannister

This might seem like an insult to Laurinaitis because he is being compared to an "imp" -- or so they call him -- but this is actually the biggest compliment of anyone. Tyrion is the brains behind the operation and probably the most liked character on the show. Not the biggest, strongest, or fastest guy on the team but Laurinaitis will lead this fierce defense with his smarts.

Alec Ogletree - Bronn

Bronn is Tyrion's sell-sword and body guard. He basically does all of the dirty work for Tyrion, which fits great with the Laurinaitis, Ogletree connection.

Janoris Jenkins - Grey Worm

Grey Worm is a very important part of Daenerys Targaryen's army. He's one of the strongest fighters and is always ready for battle. Grey Worm might be a little more straightedge than Janoris, but they both move swiftly and powerfully.

TJ McDonald - Styr

Styr and McDonald are both frightening. I'd hate to be a WR coming across the middle with either one of these guys lined up... but particularly Styr; he is literally a savage.

Stay tuned for more Game of Thrones comparisons. Next time it will be guys from around the NFL. Spoiler: Richard Sherman = Joffrey.

Do you agree with my comparisons? I'd love to hear other suggestions.
