Writer's Note: I post "Ask TST" articles at the sites of teams the Rams are about to face each week. Since St. Louis is taking a bit of R&R for a few days, I thought YOU - TSTers - deserved a chance to comment, vent, hallucinate, or whatever regarding the Rams, TST, the NFL, ect...

Writer's Note: I post "Ask TST" articles at the sites of teams the Rams are about to face each week. Since St. Louis is taking a bit of R&R for a few days, I thought YOU - TSTers - deserved a chance to comment, vent, hallucinate, or whatever regarding the Rams, TST, the NFL, ect... (P.S. - If you say something mean about a certain Editor here - whose initials may or may not be B.B. - he may give you a T-shirt with  "Futue Te Ipsum"  printed in bold letters across the chest...)

Headed into this challenging non-contest between the St. Louis Rams and the Rams in St. Louis, I think I can safely say this match up is about as even as it can get. At virtually EVERY position, this contest has the look of a down to the wire great game...

If you don't know me, I'm an Editor and writer at Turf Show Times. It's the SBNation site for all things St. Louis Rams. I thought I'd drop in and visit... Wait a second...? Something's a bit off, here, but I'll figure it out in a minute or two. I have this odd feeling I've been here before?

I thought I'd drop in to both answer, and ask, questions leading up to this pivotal game between two arch rivals. Currently tied for 2nd place in the NFC West, with another team I won't mention, both Rams squads have a great deal to prove. Right now, the only team standing in the way of a Rams trip to the post season, is, well... The Rams? OK, my head's starting to ache. Does anyone have any Advil?

To start with, I have to say I'm impressed with that rookie running back the Rams have: Todd Gurley. The upcoming schedule looks like he'll have a field day. How can the Rams stop him this week... Er, uh?

The wide receiver corp for the Rams has had a lackluster showing, but I think the talent is there to compete with any NFL team. The offensive line has issues, which have been well sussed out across the NFL media. With the potential loss for the year of veteran IR Guard Rodger Saffold, do you think the Rams bought Aflac coverage when they re-signed him after the failed physical with the Raiders?

I'll be dropping in from time to time to field your questions. As always, don't hesitate to let me know if any TSTer forget they're guests on their site...  I have to go now. The room is starting to spin a bit....
