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 ...

Friends Become Opportunities in OTAs

DMarcoFarrFeatured

Watching the 2014 St. Louis Rams conduct drills in OTAs, I’m reminded of how I broke into the NFL as an undrafted rookie. 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

DMarcoFarrFeatured

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 ...

Clowney and Manziel: Enough is Enough

D'Marco Farr in the 101ESPN Studio

Call it the football apocalypse. The extra time between now and the NFL draft has been turning people into gridiron zombies. Instead of brains, it’s information that’s the prey.  Most of all, I can’t wait until the (Jadeveon) Clowney in the window finds a new home. If this dog strays, it will be bad for all involved. Regardless of what the Houston ...

Final Thoughts Before Rams-Bears Bout

I don’t think the Rams should waste time and energy trying to take away Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. I don’t think you can. They have combined for 118 catches for 1,646 yards and 11 TDs. That’s tops in the league as far as duos go. I believe if they did, the Rams would give up as many big plays ...

Clemens Must Ace Exam Against Colts

Kellen Clemens is fully educated in his trade, but has yet to earn his degree. Apprenticeship is over. Time to submit his master’s work. Since 2006, he’s played in 33 games – eight in a Rams uniform – with 14 career starts between the New York Jets and St. Louis. Four hundred and forty-eight career pass attempts should be enough ...

Johnson & (More) Johnson: A Rams-Titans Primer

What kind of day will it be? Will it be another opportunity for Chris Johnson to continue his race with Adrian Peterson for most rushing yards since the beginning of 2008? Or will the Rams’ defense help Peterson’s cause by shutting Johnson down? Chris Johnson is an extremely smooth and patient runner. He sets up blocks when he’s carrying the football ...
