  • Av's "Looking West" - Week 6

    Av's "Looking West" - Week 6

    Two out of three picks last week - would have been 3 for 3 if my soon-to-be-benched fantasy team QB, Cam Newton, could have managed to run the ball in from the one yard line against the Hawks.

    On to Week 6!

    Predictions

    Rams 24
    Dolphins 16
    I think the Rams will be able to force some turnovers this week and, with a short field to work with, will be able to get to the end zone with more frequency than in recent weeks. Don't discount Brian Schottenheimer's familiarity with the Dolphins' defensive personnel, as he game-planned for them twice a year with the Jets. Cameron Wake is the X-factor. The Rams need to ac...

    Nick’s ClanRam 2012 NFL Power Rankings: Week 5

    Not a lot of movement in the Top Four this week, but plenty of movement in the Top 5-20 as teams begin to show their true colors and squeak out some surprise victories and head-scratching losses. The biggest surprise for me this week came from the Indianapolis Colts, who were down against the Green Bay Packers 21-3 at one point and rallied for a victory, knocking Green Bay out of the Top Ten for the time being. The Rams’ dominant victory over Arizona caused the Cardinals to slip to the ninth position while the Rams rose seven spots and make their first appearance in my Top 15. Other big risers this week are Pittsburgh (win vs. Eagles), Minnesota (win vs. Titans), Seattle (win vs. Carolina), and Miami (win vs. Cincinnati). Some of the teams slipping a bit this week whic...

    RamView, 10/4/2012: Rams 17, Big Dead 3 (Long)

    RamView, October 4, 2012 From Row HH (Report and opinions from the game.) Game #5: Rams 17, Big Dead 3 The Rams continue to find new ways to win, and exorcise an ugly demon, burying Bidwill's Birds with a barrage of NINE sacks for their first home win over St. Louis' old team in eight years. With their second division win in five days, these Rams have declared they are no longer the whipping boys of the NFC West. Position by position: * Defensive line/LB: They took about nine minutes to get going, but in the end, the Rams won this game with one of their most dominating defensive performances in memory. It looked like it would be a long night when Arizona held the ball 9:30 the first time they got it. They drove ver...

    Av's "Looking West" - Week 5

    With the Thursday game this week, I'm posting a bit early.

    The NFC West has emerged as one of the most competitve divisions in 2012. Right now, the division has an overall record of 11-5, with a record of 9-3 against non-divisional foes and an 8-0 record at home.

    Defenses are setting the tone in the division, and the Rams are no exception. While they have been vulnerable against the run, the Rams are second in the NFL in passer rating allowed and interceptions.

    Will the West continue to shine...?

    Week 5 Projections

    RamView, 9/30/2012: Rams 19, Seahawks 13 (Long)

    RamView, September 30, 2012 From Row HH (Report and opinions from the game.) Game #4: Rams 19, Seahawks 13 The 2012 Rams keep finding ways to win at home, getting unlikely contributions from across the roster, doing just enough on defense, and scoring all 19 points on special teams to match last year's win total before October even starts. What a big, big difference good coaching makes. Position by position: * Special teams: Andrew Luck, RG3, whatever. The rookie of the year is Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein, who has already become one of the NFL's most reliable offensive weapons. Zuerlein put the Rams on the board with a 58-yard FG blast that had enough steam to hit the net. That was a team record, for maybe half an hour. ...

  • The "MUSTACHE" Report (week 4)

    The "MUSTACHE" Report (week 4)

    First let me start by saying Fisher needs a shave. What a big win this was! Anyhow Fisher's press conference was short and SWEET! He actually smiled/smirked quite a bit. Briefly, he talked about the offense needing to improve. We need to get in the end zone. He thought the o-line played great. When asked about how he thought Brockers played? He responded that he played hard. That response is just another in a long list of how classy Fisher is. Rather than put the kid down he gave him the old he played hard line knowing that there's room for a lot of improvement. Whi...

    Nick's 2012 ClanRam NFL Power Rankings: Week 3

    This is now becoming a bonafide curse.

    For the third time in a row, my number one ranked team lost, as San Francisco dropped a surprise game to the Minnesota Vikings. The ***** remain in the Top Five for the time being after taking down contenders in Green Bay and Detroit.

    A dominating victory over the Philadelphia Eagles has the Arizona Cardinals emerging as a Top Ten contender in the Power Rankings, despite my own personal skepticism as to whether they’ll be able to keep their undefeated season going much longer. Still, credit where credit is due.

    As for the Rams, they fall a few spots in the wake of a disappointing loss to a team most fans probably felt would defeat St. Louis before the season and especially before the impressive showing against Washington. St. Louis has a chance to bounce back this week against a tough but beatable Seahawks squad.

    Nick's ClanRam 2012 NFL Power Rankings - Week Two

    Two weeks in a row, and my top ranked team goes down. I’m beginning to think there’s some kind of curse associated with my Power Rankings, and given who the new #1 team is, I’m hoping it works again this week!

    With a win over Detroit in prime time, and losses by both New England and Baltimore, the San Francisco ***** have taken the top ranking this week. Rounding out the top five are the Falcons (2), who had a good showing on Monday night against the Broncos, the Texans (3), who continue to impress on both sides of the football, the Packers (4), who made short work of Jay Cutler and the Bears’ offensive line, and the Ravens (5), who dropped three spots after a close loss to the Eagles.

    The Rams’ close victory over the media-darling Washington Redskins was enough to move them up four spots to #22. A win over the 14th-ranked Chicago Bears should see them break into the Top 20. The Redskins dropped three spots, representing the three points Josh Morgan cost his team by throwing a football at Cortland Finnegan. If it’s worth pointing out a new top-ranked team on the rankings, Miami’s win over Oa...

  • Nick's Post-Senior Bowl 2016 NFL First Round Mock Draft (v2.0)
    Nick
    Now that the Senior Bowl is firmly in the rear view mirrior, here's an updated look at how things could shake out in the first round of the NFL Draft this year. As always, feedback and constructive criticism is welcome! ROUND ONE 1. Tennessee Titans: Laremy Tunsil, OT, Mississippi -Tennessee is second in the league in sacks allowed, and no quarterback when pressured has been sacked at as large of a percentage as Marcus Mariota has been. Tunsil gives the Titans a legitimate left tackle to pair with Taylor Lewan on the offensive line. 2. Cleveland Browns: Jared Goff, QB, California -The hype train for Carson Wentz is in full steam, but I'm not ready to put him in the Top 5 as some other people are. I still view Goff as the top QB in the class, meaning he makes a lot of sense for a Cleveland team that is tired of Johnny Manziel's screw ups. 3. San Diego Chargers: Jalen Ramsey, CB, Florida State -Brandon Flowers was graded out as one of the worst corners in the league by Pro Football Focus, and Eric Weddle won't be coming back. The Chargers could use help in both areas, and Ramsey is capable of excelling at either at the next level. 4. Dallas Cowboys: Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State -Will the Cowboys flirt with taking a QB here? Maybe, but I also think Jerr...

  • RamView, 1/3/2016: ***** 19, Rams 16 (OT) (Long)
    MFranke
    RamView, January 3, 2016 Game #16: ***** 19, Rams 16 (OT) The ever-inconsistent Rams regress back to the mean and end another losing season with another disappointing loss to a team they had no business losing to. The hallmark of Jeff Fisher Rams football isn't the running game or aggressive defense, it's miserable losses like this one. Good riddance to 2015. Position by position: * QB: Case Keenum (23-37-231, PR 77.6) does a lot right for the Rams at QB. He runs the offense with good tempo and gets the ball out quickly on quick-timing plays. He’s smart and tough in the pocket, uses his mobility well and rarely gets sacked. The best example of that was a play he made in the 3rd. He rolled right, deked a free-running Aaron Lynch into pul...

  • Rams lose 19-16 in OT to whiners; The Good, Bad and Ugly
    general counsel
    The Todd Gurley-less Rams finished their season 7-9 with a disappointing OT loss to the whiners by the score of 19-16 on the strength of terrible third down play on both sides of the ball, untimely penalties, terrible field goal kicking and some highly suspect play calling with the team poised to win the game in overtime. The Rams shortcomings against a 5-11 couldnt have been more obvious today. At the end of the day, Case Keenum is not an NFL starting qb, albeit a reasonable backup. Way too many missed opportunities, and without todd gurley, and with all of our injuries on defense, we arent close to good enough to simply have a qb who is going to avoid mistakes at all costs, afraid to make throws. Toss in some untimely drops by our receivers and at least one terrible call by the refs that obviously cost us 3 points at the minimum, and you find a way to lose a game that we all know we should have won. No points...

  • Rams beat seachickens 23-17; The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
    general counsel
    In what should be considered their most impressive win in the Fisher era, the Rams won their third game in a row by beating and beating up the seachickens in a tremendous 23-17 win. The Rams capitalized on 3 seachicken turnovers (one of which resulted in a defensive touchdown), didn't turn the ball over themselves, kept the penalties to a minimum, and scrounged out just enough offense to earn their first season sweep of the chickens since 2004. The Rams played their best half of the year jumping out to a 16-3 lead at the break and hung in there to avoid a collapse at the scene of so many painful prior year debacles. Frankly, i am riddled with mixed and incredibly extreme and passionate emotions at this point. On the one hand, i am so thrilled with a tremendous win over a playoff caliber team on the road in which the Rams proved once and for all that they have the talent and capability to win big games, notwithstanding...

  • Rams beat seachickens 23-17; The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
    clarasDK
    Good write up.

    I think it was ugly that we accepted the penalty with the Seagulla on 4 and 10. Giving them a new (long) third down. I am pretty sure they would not have gone for it on 4 and 10.

    Else great game.

  • RamView, 12/17/2015: Rams 31, Bucs 23 (Long)
    MFranke
    RamView, December 17, 2015 Game #14: Rams 31, Bucs 23 If this was the Rams' last week in St. Louis, at least they made it a heck of a week. They won for the second time in five days Thursday night and made the Bucs look like the team that could not cut the mustard. Position by position: * QB: Case Keenum (14-17-234, 2 TD, PR 158.0) managed the heck out of this game. He led the Rams to an opening drive TD throwing little but screens and swing passes. But Case did not live on small ball alone, also throwing a perfect 60-yard TD bomb to Kenny Britt later in the 1st. The Ram passing game was in good rhythm much of the game, and Keenum distributed the ball well. On the Rams' TD drive in the 2nd, he hit Tavon Austin for 13, Lance K...
