Championship Sunday Picks: New England and Atlanta Will Advance to Super Bowl

By Bernie Miklasz | January 20, 2017 | 3 Comments

Nothing that happens Sunday will surprise me. There is too much firepower and star power to take any of these teams lightly. There’s too much talent, and pedigree, to assume we’ll see softness and early surrenders. The AFC and NFC Championship matchups feature prolific, creative attacks that rank among the top nine in the NFL …

Atlanta Falcons Evoke Memories of St. Louis Rams and The Greatest Show on Turf

By Bernie Miklasz | January 19, 2017 | 1 Comment

Domed stadium … Loud crowd … fast track … Flurries and blizzards of points … Overwhelmed visiting-team defenses …  Sound familiar? The Atlanta Falcons, who will host the Green Bay Packers in Sunday’s NFC Championship at the Georgia Dome, are bringing back some memories.  I enjoy watching the Falcons because they remind me of a …

NFL Divisional Round Picks: It’s Going to be a Dog Weekend

By Anthony Stalter | January 14, 2017 | 0 Comments

First things first: I’m waiving the white flag on my “Fading Kevin Wheeler” series. In the end, it was one of the dumber ideas I had, mostly because I was making picks on games I didn’t truly have a feel for, but also because I didn’t factor in how Kevin is a machine. An NFL-picking …

Sad: Post-Kroenke Hatred Is Damaging Effort to Bring the MLS to St. Louis

By Bernie Miklasz | January 13, 2017 | 61 Comments

A year later after the local NFL team moved to Los Angeles, here’s my biggest concern about the post-Rams sporting life in St. Louis: the mission to secure an Major League Soccer franchise has been damaged by the lingering bitterness and resentment over the Rams’ relocation. The idea of using public money to defray the …

Fun with Audio: L.A. Rams Fans Dislike Stan Kroenke

By Chris Files | January 12, 2017 | 0 Comments

On the anniversary of the Rams leaving St. Louis and the day the Chargers leave San Diego, we have a little fun with Stan Kroenke’s press conference audio to show how fans in Los Angeles really feel about him. Miklasz: One Year Ago Today, the NFL Approved the Rams’ Move to LA. Twelve Months Later, …

Daily Bernie: Jan. 12 – Listener Reactions to One Year Without the NFL; Blues Mess Different From Last Season

By Luke Schnake | January 12, 2017 | 1 Comment

The Rams relocation will fade more and more into the background each year, but it’s still relatively fresh after the first 365 days. How are you coping? Bernie devotes much of Thursday’s program to this question and plays listener voicemails throughout. Your host also devotes time to whether the NFL screwjob has soured local and …

One Year Ago Today, the NFL Approved the Rams’ Move to LA. Twelve Months Later, How Are You Feeling?

By Bernie Miklasz | January 12, 2017 | 24 Comments

A year ago today, Jan. 12, the NFL owners voted to approve the Rams’ relocation from St. Louis to Los Angeles. A corrupt process was rigged through the final hours, when the normal rules and protocol were changed to allow the owners to vote anonymously as part of a successful ploy to pick up votes …

Friendly Advice to Sean McVay: Beware of the Rams and Club Demoff

By Bernie Miklasz | January 11, 2017 | 11 Comments

Based on multiple media reports, it appears that the Los Angeles Rams are moving closer to offering their head-coaching job to Washington Redskins’ offensive coordinator Sean McVay. That certainly would be interesting. By all accounts McVay has done a good job as the Redskins’ OC. He comes from an impressive NFL blood line; grandfather John …

We Can Make it Official: Clemson’s Dabo Swinney Is a Great Coach.

By Bernie Miklasz | January 10, 2017 | 6 Comments

The way I see it, Clemson’s Dabo Swinney didn’t need to dethrone Alabama and win a national championship Monday night to prove that he’s an elite head coach, deserving of a place on a short list of names. Swinney was already there. Over the past six seasons, since 2011, only Alabama has won more games …

NFL Playoff Observations: Rodgers’ Masterpiece, Beckham’s Butterfingers, Better Games Ahead

By Anthony Stalter | January 9, 2017 | 0 Comments

It wasn’t a great start for the NFL. Three of this weekend’s four games were unwatchable and the fourth, the Giants-Packers matchup, could have been turned off following Green Bay’s final touchdown at 5:48 remaining in the fourth quarter. This lackluster postseason start will inevitably lead to a conversation about sagging ratings, Roger Goodell’s horrendous …
