Today should be a pretty good one for the St. Louis Rams and fans in the area as the team hosts an intra-squad scrimmage. Anyone here planning on going to the scrimmage? If so, write up your thoughts on what you see. It's tonight at Lindenwood University in St. Charles at 6:30 p.m. and it's absolutely free.
The team will do some full tilt hitting in the scrimmage, but not every quarter. According to head coach Steve Spagnuolo they'll have off and on periods of full contact.
Practice was short yesterday, but there are still a few tidbits to pass along. According to the PD, Derek Stanley has looked good at wide receiver, with tight routes and good hands. I kind of thought Stanley might end up the odd man out at WR this season, but he does have experience. If he sticks and gives the Rams another option, even better.
We've mentioned CB Quincy Butler here a few times since camp began, and lo and behold he gets another mention today. He's having a great camp thus far...don't let anyone step on you toes Quincy, that derailed another strong showing from a CB last year. Speaking of Justin King, he played with the first team at nickel yesterday.
Throwback uniforms, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the 1999 Super Bowl season, make their debut on October 11 against the Vikings and December 20 against the Texans...just in time for the holidays.
Randy McMichael is stoked for the West Coast Offense, and we're stoked to have him playing in the West Coast Offense. Should make up for those two lost seasons he spent with the Rams.
Rams Gab asks what happened three years ago when the Linehan era began in St. Louis. I think part of what happened was you still had Zygmunt and Shaw in the front office.
