December 19th, 2013 at 10:27 AM
With 13 of the 16 games on the NFL schedule this week having playoff implications, a lot is riding on the outcomes of this week's games. We saw last week that one play (a 61 yard field goal), one coach's decision (going for two instead of overtime) and one quarterback's...

The St. Louis Rams Have a Golden Opportunity to Start Over at Quarterback
December 18th, 2013 at 9:15 AM
Rams 101 contributor David Schlager thinks it's time for St. Louis to look in another direction at quarterback.   When golden chances fall in your lap, you've got to take them.  As often as we hear it, you cannot overemphasize it. The NFL is a quarterback league.   Teams that have a great quarterback generally have...

December 17th, 2013 at 10:09 AM
When the 2013 schedule came out, the week 16 matchup between the St. Louis Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers looked intriguing: two teams that once jockeyed for NFC dominance a decade ago now looking to rebuild under second year head coaches and promising young quarterbacks. Both teams were coming off...

Would the Real St. Louis Rams Please Stand Up?
December 16th, 2013 at 7:11 AM
Is Jeff Fisher half as confused by his team as St. Louis Rams fans are? The St. Louis Rams moved to 6-8 on the season with an improbable  thrashing of the New Orleans Saints Sunday. The win preserves the chance that the Rams could finish at .500 for the season. Of...

December 12th, 2013 at 3:48 PM
In the words of St. Louis's favorite son, Nelly, "It's gettin' hot in here!" Yes, the Rams 101 Pick'em contest is heating up as the temperatures drop. No, (and thankfully) none of us will be removing any clothing. I pulled within one game of Brent with a sterling 13-3 week last...

St. Louis Rams Secondary Holding Back Defense
December 10th, 2013 at 10:36 AM
When teams aren't performing well, the age old debate is how much of that is a product of inferior talent and how much of that is due to poor coaching. The St. Louis Rams most recent losing skid is in no small part due to a secondary that is surrendering...

St. Louis Rams Crossing the Line from Aggression to Stupidity
December 9th, 2013 at 10:35 AM
It's been said that football is a game of "controlled aggression." Unfortunately for the St. Louis Rams, they haven't learned to control their youthful aggression yet, and it's a big reason why this team is 5-8 after 13 games. Sunday's game against Arizona was another page in the same script. The...

NFL Pick’em Week 14: Betsy’s Back!
December 5th, 2013 at 12:04 PM
We had a major shakeup last week in our Rams 101 pick'em contest. Brent, who had been distancing himself from the pack, went in the tank with a 7-9 week. I gained two games on him with a 9-7 mark, cutting his lead in half. The winner of the week...

November 27th, 2013 at 2:19 PM
It's Turkey Day! And that means two of my favorite things: naps and football. Thanksgiving Day football is a tradition like no other, and now, thanks to the greed...err generosity of the NFL, we can enjoy gridiron action all day long! Brent and I each went 7-6-1 last week, so his...
