While most of us are focused on what's going down between Atlanta and St. Louis, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are cursing the groin of Danny Amendola. He could miss up to six weeks.
The Rams activated Isaiah Pead for this Sunday's game. While he won't step in and take over, he is sure to get some touches. Zac Stacy will also pound the rock, behind starter Daryl Richardson. The Rams might not necessarily have a "running back by committee" approach, but the touches will get spread around.
While Jared Cook has a long way to go to be even in the same zip code as future Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez, Cook's week one performance says he has the potential. The two tight ends will feature heavily in a game that pits two very good offenses against each other.
The number one and number two picks of the 2008 NFL Draft are now on the same team. Here is a drive by drive breakdown of their first ever game facing each other. Boy am I glad they are both Rams!
No.... Get your head out of the gutter man! Cook wasn't just sold on the Rams because of his connection with Jeff Fisher. He saw a tough defense that could get the ball back in the offense's hands.

Ndamukong Suh (try to say that three times fast) will be appealing his record setting fine of $100,000 levied against him for an illegal block against Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan. You may remember Suh's other incident, one that involved a kick to the groin of Houston Texan's quarterback Matt Shaub. He's not dirty....
Doug Williams....You're Fired!
Doug Williams was fired from his coaching position at Grambling State, after they lost their first two games by a combined score of 71-19. Ouch.
