Rams vs. Saints – What to Watch

Gregg Williams Featured-3

It’s doubtful that Rams starting quarterback Sam Bradford will play this Friday. Several other starters, like left tackle Jake Long and guard Rodger Saffold will probably grab some pine against the visiting New Orleans Saints, too. It’s all good, actually, since St. Louis will be looking for depth more so than front-line player as the preseason schedule kicks off. The ...

Underdog Role Suits Rams’ McLeod Perfectly

D'Marco Farr in the 101ESPN Studio

Quick, who wears No. 23 for the St. Louis Rams? Cue the “Jeopardy” theme music, followed by that signature buzzer. Oh, sorry, it’s actually safety Rodney McLeod. That’s OK, though. Most people miss that one. Just like the Dangerfield version, this Rodney gets no respect – at least from outside observers. (The “fans” here are a little suspect, too, when ...

All eyes are on Alec Ogletree this fall – and for good reason. In 2013, the weakside linebacker enjoyed a semi-breakout campaign, pacing the ...

Friends Become Opportunities in OTAs

I couldn’t think of anything else during my first sessions with the Los Angeles Rams in 1994. It wasn’t about achieving some a childhood dream of playing in the pros or making a million dollars. I was thinking solely ...

Putting Goodell on Blast for Irsay Situation

NFL Draft Football

I absolutely love how Washington safety Ryan Clark put NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on blast by calling him a hypocrite because he has not punished Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay for riding dirty back in March. Irsay was pulled over for allegedly driving drunk…or in some sort of altered state while carrying $29K in cash and enough bottles of prescription drugs to ...

Scary World for Undrafted Free Agents


This year a record 98 underclassmen declared for the draft meeting the leagues three year eligibility rule. Each player submitted a written application renouncing (scary word!) his remaining college football eligibility. Basically, they’re dropping out of school to join the circus. Out of those 98 college dropouts, 36 went unselected in the draft. Some of the unselected players will undoubtedly join teams as undrafted ...
