    hayes punches out mirror and cuts arm

    espn is reporting that william hayes cut his arm after punching out the locker room mirror in frustration after the rams loss to the titans. Nice to see the passion, probably not such a good idea to attack the glass!

    ramming speed to all

    I agree with the passion comment. Hopefully people see that the Rams players are not simply mailing it in and content to lose.


    Morning Ram-blings: Hayes' frustration

    Nov 5
    By Nick Wagoner | ESPN.com

    ST. LOUIS -- Of the many emotions readily available in the St. Louis Rams locker room Sunday after yet another disappointing loss to the Tennessee Titans, there was one more abundant than all the rest: frustration.

    That frustration was written all over defensive end Chris Long's face and evident in the exasperated voice of defensive tackle Kendall Langford . But nowhere was it more easy to spot than in the broken glass and pool of blood being cleaned in the locker room bathroom before the media entered for interviews.

    The shattered mirror and blood were the product of defensive end William Hayes, who simply couldn't hold in his frustration the way his teammates did. He smashed the mirror and left the accompanying mess in his wake.

    Rams coach Jeff Fisher was one of the first on the scene.

    “I got there," Fisher said. "We talked and settled him down. He was OK. Basically, he expressed how everybody felt and it hit him hard."

    Undoubtedly, Hayes was upset by the 28-21 loss, a loss in which the defense once again failed to stop an opposing rushing attack. That it was another game there for the taking in which his team came up short didn't help. Putting the icing on the cake was the fact that the opponent was Tennessee, Hayes' former team, a team he clearly wanted to beat.

    "This game was big for him," Fisher said. "He played very well in the game and he was just disappointed."

    The smashed mirror left Hayes with a cut on his arm but no further damage and a quick talk from Fisher on managing those emotions a little better so as not to risk serious injury.

    "Use better judgment, you know, you don’t need to punch a mirror and risk cutting yourself, and he did," Fisher said. "We addressed it today. To the extent of which he felt, the emotion that he felt -- not that everybody else didn’t -- I think that’s the good thing. But, you’ve got to draw the line and make sure you take care of yourself.”

    There's nothing wrong with passion and emotion. Hayes brings that to the table on a daily basis for the Rams, it's part of what makes him such a key ingredient to everything the defense wants to do.

    If nothing else, Hayes' outburst should serve as a reminder that even though the 3-6 Rams are likely headed toward a lost season, they have no intention of being an easy out for any of the teams remaining on the schedule.

    One week its the offense letting the defense down and the next week its the defense letting the offense down. Would be nice to see them both have good games the same week but it will be tough in Indy.

    I in no way think the defense was sterling against the Titans, but it wasn't the defense fumbling the ball at the end of the game.

    I think my point was more of it would be nice to see them both play well in the same week. The fumble at the end of the game might not have even mattered if the defense doesnt open the flood gates against the Titans run game.

    Interesting contrast of Hayes to Jonathan Martin on the Dolphins. It shows that football players are people with emotions and that is something we as fans need to keep in mind. Its a lesson Richie Incognito is learning the hard way.

    Go Rams!

    No...it was the next play by the Titans when their esteemed RB went untouched into end zone for a TD

    My real frustration with the defense last week was how good we were in the first half and how bad we were in the second half. Hard to explain.

    GO RAMS! ...But just in case things don't go your way, take it easy in the locker room.

    Hayes is good people.

    or cunningham dropping it on a potential scoring drive somewhere around the 10-5 yard line

    though apparently a cast made his thumb weaker, or the injury did rather, but you'd think he'd have carried it with both hands/arms or his other arm....

    also...don't know if i want to be andrew luck next sunday...

    Yes, to me it was that the missed FG and then the collapse of the D In the 2nd HALF.....

    Reports are starting to come in that the mirror started it, however the mirror had "no comment" at this time.
