Week 14 and the Rams have something to play for besides holding tryouts for next year? Hard to believe isn't it? A division title? Well, that's the case as the Rams head into New Orleans in what "could" be a preview of an NFC Wild Card game... except if there is a rematch, it would be in St. Louis.
Not only are the Rams in the hunt for a division title, but this is an important game for the Rams, in that a win, and they could gain a lot more respect in the league... you know, beating the super bowl champs at home, while they are on a roll and all..
In just a few short hours, we'll see kickoff... i'm so excited I can barely stand it!!
On to the links:
- Arizona DL Alan Branch got fined $10,000 for his helmet to helmet blow on Sam Bradford. This is Alan's second infraction, the first coming in 2009. This is also the second time Bradford has had an illegal helmet to helmet hit this year. The article also has some injury notes... Darby, Bartell, King, all doubtfull.
- From the PD the gang discuss coach Spags and how he has changed the overall culture at Rams Park, and how he has changed as well. This is a great article and I agree, Spags has greatly improved in many areas in just one season as the head honcho.
- Sando has a look at NFC West QB performance so far this year. Interesting how Bradford has struggled on first down with 1 back and 1 TE. I was shocked to see that honestly. He's thrown just 1 TD and 3 INT's in those situations.
- Here's an awesome video by NFL Playbook talking about the Rams and their balance. SJAX, Bradford, and defensive schemes were all shown. Fantastic Videos.
- Here's another Video... a Spags interview discussing the Rams and their first place standing.
- Don't forget to check out Turf Show Radio from last night. What a fantastic episode as usual.
That's about it for this morning... get ready for some football today folks... See y'all in the game thread!
