Some things are more important than football. The tragic events in Thousand Oaks overshadow what should be a great NFC West matchup this Sunday. Horns, and prayers, up.

Rams CB Marcus Peters has a message for Saints coach Sean Payton: Tell him ‘to keep talking that s—’ | Sporting News

Personally, if I was Sean Payton, I’d take Peters up on his offer and keep talking. Until #22 starts making some positive plays for the Rams, I’m not so sure he should be the one flapping his gums. Gumbo for one, Marcus. To go.

Goff Making Plays in Different Ways as Rams Prepare for Seahawks | Rams Official

While it’s true that Goff has looked a little more comfortable running with the ball lately, don’t expect him to suddenly channel Michael Vick. Yes, it’s ok to call him “Crazy Legs” Goff.

Opposing View: Seahawks HC Pete Carroll Has Established Offensive Identity with Run Game | Rams Official

Truth. Carrol’s Seahawks rushed for nearly 200 yards against the Rams in the previous matchup. When much of the offseason chatter was about how poor their offensive line would be, Seattle has quietly built an effective ground game.

Los Angeles Rams: 4 bold predictions for Week 10 against the Seahawks | FanSided

Bold in the way that A-1 Bold is bold. Meaning, you know, not really all that bold. More like a pinch of cayenne and a squeeze of lime. But go on, FanSided, speak your truths.

Pharoh Cooper not certain to be activated off IR, get return job back | RamsWire

Pretty sure everyone has been thinking it — now someone’s finally saying it. While I’m not overly impressed with Blake Countess on kickoff returns, the Rams have a real find in PR JoJo Natson. Anyone else reach for the Depends when the thought of Cooper returning a kickoff in a playoff game comes to mind?

This is a bit of a non-story, but some detail on Talib’s return just the same. Players are supposed to say they’re coming back right when eligible, and coaches are supposed to go “Well wait a minute, we need to go through the process of....” Tell you what: if the Rams D gets embarrassed in Mexico City like we all know they might, there’s 0% chance Talib isn’t ready to roll Week 13.
