New, comments

Losing four games is not a good way to climb up the major power rankings.

The Rams have dropped four in a row after starting 4-3. This might be a good time to point out that Jeff Fisher's last winning season was 2008 ... with the Titans. 30th (26th)

The 2015 campaign has turned ugly quick in St. Louis. Jeff Fisher has fewer supporters than Mike Martz at "Pass Protection Made Simple" coaching camps ... than people who want the Raiders back in L.A. Then there is Nick Foles, whose uninspiring play is making Chip Kelly look like Football Yoda right now. Do you realize how difficult that is?

One has to wonder if Jeff Fisher is in trouble. They just haven't made progress.

It's hard to win in this league without a QB, and right now, the Rams don't have one. That one issue has allowed opposing teams to focus on stopping Todd Gurley, and it's worn down a great defense.

I'm not sure if they're the NFL's most disappointing team, but they're on a very short list.

Apparently, "kiss my ass" comes from the Competition Committee’s special parliamentary procedures known as Robert’s Rules of Odor.

Todd Gurley’s production has come to a halt in recent weeks, but not because the Rams are refusing to let him carry the football. In the past two games, Gurley has rushed for just 85 yards on 33 carries. The Rams need to find another consistent offensive weapon.

Pro Football Focus: 22nd (22nd)

Defensive tackle Aaron Donald is the only DT in the league with a PFF grade above 90 in both run defense and pass rushing; and he has above 93 in each category. He would play 3-4 defensive tackle for this All-Star defense.
