Pardon me if I lack for a catchy intro today. The St. Louis Rams have a busy week ahead, getting ready to go on the road for three straight weeks. Today, it's still about follow up from the Rams loss to the Falcons. Diving right in...

Head coach Steve Spagnuolo took his team's week 11 loss a little differently, a little more personally than the Rams' previous games.

I feel that way, and I know (the players) do too. So the better you become, the more in the thick of it you get. You know the higher the aspirations, I guess the more upset I get when you don't win. Not that I ever accept any loss.

Might this translate into that killer instinct we've been talking about?

Tech people we need your insight on this item. The Rams leased the 700 MHz wireless spectrum for 180 days, roughly the same as a football season, for "private communications service for the St. Louis Rams professional football games at the Edward Jones Dome at America's Center in St. Louis City." That's a mighty powerful wireless internet spectrum, capable of penetrating buildings and distances. The Rams won't say what they plan to do with all that bandwidth, but you can imagine that's more than just free WiFi for the press box. 

Sam Bradford is many things. Here are five things, er, former first round picks that he isn't.

Former Vikings defensive coordinator and current interim head coach Leslie Frazier was one of a few candidates who interviewed for the Rams job that eventually went to Spagnuolo. Frazier has been a hot ticket on the coaching market since then, and you wonder if Minnesota will keep him around given his reputation...and the kind of results he can get.  

The Rams week 12 opponents, the Denver Broncoslost big to the San Diego Chargers last night, a team the Rams beat earlier this season. 

WR Danario Alexander should be ready to go this week against Denver. Rivers threw 4 TDs last night against Denver, to four different receivers, none of whom were Antonio Gates or Vincent Jackson. Can Alexander and Bradford exploit that come Sunday?
