  • Nick's Post-Senior Bowl 2016 NFL First Round Mock Draft (v2.0)

    Nick's Post-Senior Bowl 2016 NFL First Round Mock Draft (v2.0)

    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)

    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. Hes 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

    Rams lose 19-16 in OT to whiners; The Good, Bad and Ugly

    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

    Rams beat seachickens 23-17; The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    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

    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)

    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...

  • Rams beat Tampa Bay 31-23; The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    Rams beat Tampa Bay 31-23; The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    In what may have been the Rams last game in St. Louis, the squad played their best half of the season, jumping to a 21-3 lead and coasting to a 31-23 victory over Tampa Bay. The Rams pushed their record to 6-8, leading to a second consecutive week of head scratching as we all ask ourselves what could have and should be been different this season. Two wins in a row does not make up for all the disappointments this year, but it's clear that the Rams have not quit on Fisher and that we do have talent and the capability of playing at a high level. Alas, the story of the Fisher era to date is lack of consistency, and tonight's performance is really nothing more than another tease. We can all complain all we want, and we have every right to do so. The fact remains that we are about 3 plays away from being 9-5 right now. Many teams in the nfl could probably make similar claims as close...

    RamView, 12/13/2015: Rams 21, Lions 14 (Long)

    RamView, December 13, 2015 Game #13: Rams 21, Lions 14 Some teams find ways to win; some teams find ways to lose. Some teams play hard this time of year; some teams mail it in. The Rams checked the positive boxes this week, the woeful Lions the negative ones, and the Rams rode Fisherball to victory. Position by position: * QB: Case Keenum (14-22-124, PR 59.7) stayed out of big trouble with his feet, and showed a lot of toughness getting passes off and avoiding sacks while taking several big hits, but his most important quality in this game was his brain. He ran the Rams' short, quick passing game competently, though not to any scores in the first half. At the end of the half, no one read the blind side safety blitz, and Ke...

  • Rams beat Lions 21-14; The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    Rams beat Lions 21-14; The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    In what may turn out to be their final Sunday home game in St. Louis, the Rams used a strong defensive effort and dominating second half performance from Todd Gurley to defeat the Lions 21-14, snapping a five game losing streak and moving their record to 5-8. Today's win and overall performance has to raise all the "what ifs" and "what could have been" and "what should have been's" about the Rams season. At 5-8, barring a miracle, we are out of the playoff race and obviously can't finish above .500. But today we saw the Rams that Fisher and Snead built and what we expected to happen all year. Pound the ball, shorten the game, play strong defense, cause turnovers and win games in a physical old school style with a game manager qb that can make the occasional throw without making mistakes. Who knows, a play here or there...

    RamView, 12/6/2015: Cardinals 27, Rams 3 (Long)

    RamView, December 6, 2015 Game #12: Cardinals 27, Rams 3 Watching the Rams play has become as joyless and uninteresting as standing over the remains of a burned-down building. At least grass growing or paint drying is something showing progress. All that's showing progress in St. Louis these days is the rate of decay and the bitter burning smell of another failed season. Position by position: * QB: In what I assume will be his last game this season the great Case Keenum is expected back next week Nick Foles (15-35-146 PR 43.3), confirmed the hopelessness of the QB situation here. He looks like he should have a rifle arm, but instead it's a BB gun, with the accuracy of a shotgun. The Rams came out planning to throw qui...
