The St. Louis Rams are going to be one of the better teams in the NFL in the years to come as soon as they are able to find a healthy and capable quarterback. The defense is certainly poised for greatness (as long as no one leaves via free agency) and a run at a Super Bowl title with the way these guys fly around and wreck offenses.Their tendency to 'fly around' ended up being Â...

The St. Louis Rams pulled off a blocked field goal in incredible fashion on Sunday. St. Louis was already down 37-27 with two minutes left and very little chance of a comeback, but that didnât stop Darren Bates from going all-out. Bates perfectly timed the snap, hurdled the hunter, and then he hopped in front...Read More
The St. Louis Rams and New York Giants are playing for pride, and it seems that part of that pride includes not letting anyone mess with you or your teammates. So when Rams linebacker Alec Oggletree made a late hit on Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. out of bounds the rookie was not going to take that lightly--so he kicked Oggletree.Giants punter Steve Weatherford tried to...

St. Louis Rams defensive back Cody Davis apparently got too close to New York Giants kicker Josh Brown, who was trying to recover the football in the first half of Sundayâs Week 16 battle.
As you can see in the video below, Brown actually âmule kickedâ Davis in the face.
Itâs worth noting that the 35-year-old kicker actually spent four seasons in St. Louis (2008-11).
The St. Louis Rams in 2014 have had their challenges. The Rams had some bad luck with some injuries, play calling, and getting players ready to compete on a week to week basis. The Rams play calling on both sides of the ball has left a lot to be desired. This year should have been the St. Louis Rams year to make it to the playoffs but bad luck always seemed to...

ST. LOUIS -- Tre Mason averaged just 2.5 yards per carry last week. A critical lost fumble hurt the most for the St. Louis Rams' rookie running back, and he is looking for a bounce-back game against the New York Giants.
Rams coach Jeff Fisher is confident his young back can return to the form that earned him the starting job.
"He's been productive, but as coaches we tend to remember...
ST. LOUIS -- The most improved unit on the Rams' defense might not be the first one that comes to mind.
Sure, a resurgent defensive line that contributed heavily to 29 sacks in the last seven games after just one in the first five provided the most obvious impact. But it's clear those talented pass rushers are considerably more effective when a young secondary can offer strong support...
A couple weeks back, William Hayes and Eugene Sims both missed a stretch of practice due to deaths in the family. Neither defensive lineman missed any game time, which is pretty amazing considering what the two were going through.
Yesterday, ESPNâs Nick Wagoner shed some light on Simsâ and Hayesâ loss.
Within just a few days of each other, Hayes lost his grandmother, Bessie...
The Rams still have two games left to play, but since the only real meaning left in them is ending on a positive note heading into 2015, itâs time to begin the annual shift into the offseason. The Rams have a tricky one ahead of them, as theyâve still got a unique quarterback situation on their hands as well as the task of keeping around a few potential veteran free agents-to...
ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Rams are following through on plans to aid residents in nearby Ferguson.

ST. LOUIS -- Defensive back E.J. Gaines slipped into St. Louis Rams training camp as an afterthought. Turns out, the sixth-round pick has been a steal.
Gaines has started every game for a defense that hasn't allowed a touchdown the last three games. He is the only rookie cornerback in the NFL to start every game.
"A pleasant surprise? No, I wouldn't say that," coach Jeff Fisher said...
With the Rams mathematically eliminated from playoff contention for the season, they have to be disappointed with their season but also excited for the future. This is a team with a plethora of young talent with players who flirted with stardom during the 2014 year. There are definitely things to improve on for next year and the front office will have to make some critical decisions...
Jared Cook spoke eloquently about why he and four St. Louis Rams teammates did the ''Hands Up'' gesture, but comments about his coach get him in trouble last week.
It's ''not just a Ferguson thing,'' the Rams tight end said earlier this month. ''It's a worldwide thing. You don't need to burn down your community, you don't need to harm others to get your message across.''

We have read the reports. We have heard politicians talk about the likelihood. Heck, we have even started to hear key owners step up in support of the idea.
And considering that multiple owners meetings took place in November, some with the likely focus on relocation, the idea of a NFL team moving to Los Angeles has been put on the front burner, at least privately.
Now comes this...

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians did some serious chest-beating after his teamâs win over the St. Louis Rams on Thursday night. After entering the game as four-point underdogs, the Cardinals dominated the Rams defensively and gave up just two field goals the entire game. The Ramsâ defense, which was coming off back-to-back shutouts, had...Read More

However, this gesture, as great as it might be,...
The St. Louis Rams enter Thursday nightâs matchup against the Arizona Cardinals with two consecutive wins by a combined 76-0 score. They do so with Shaun Hill playing solid football under center.
But no one in their right mind views Hill as the long-term solution at quarterback. This has led some to openly wonder what the Rams have planned at this all-important position moving...
St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher mixed things up a bit before Sundayâs game against the Washington Redskins.
