Williams’ Defense in Spotlight vs. Seattle

Gregg Williams featured

As the Rams get ready for Sunday’s game at the Edward Jones Dome against the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks, there are some questions looming over Gregg Williams’ defense. There isn’t much mystery, however, in the Seahawks’ offense. Running back Marshawn Lynch (79 carries for 367 yards and three touchdowns) is the “tip of the spear” in a rushing attack ...

Key Matchups in Rams vs. 49ers

jake long featured

Are Jake Long and Rodger Saffold doomed to be just another notch on Justin Smith’s gun belt? After 210 professional football games and 85 career sacks, the San Francisco defensive tackle has cut more than a few names into it during his 14-year playing career. This season is no different, as he has already racked up 29 tackles – three ...

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 ...

Rams’ Linebackers Ready to Bust Out

James Laurinaitis Featured

I like the St. Louis Rams’ depth at linebacker in 2014. Barring any last-minute roster shuffling, the corps at the second level of the defense should be about set for the team’s reporting date of July 24. All eyes are on Alec Ogletree this fall – and for good reason. In 2013, the weakside linebacker enjoyed a semi-breakout campaign, pacing the ...
