  • Coverage of tonights game

    From Mike Franke

    St. Louis local TV will have the game on channel 11.
    7 pm Central time. Broadcast team is Tom Kelly and Vince Ferragamo (!).
    I know nothing about any "wild" or otherwise satellite feeds.

    - NFL Network will re-air the game at noon Central time Friday.
    That is channel 212 on DirecTV. It's the first of 54(!) preseason
    games they will broadcast this summer.
    NFL Network preseason schedule:

    - I'm planning to "RamView" on the list again this year & will probably post it
    Friday morning.

    - Webcasts:
    Not looking good. KLOU and KTRS will likely be the only chances to get the game
    on the Web, and their servers will probably be swamped at kickoff, if it goes like
    last year. Several sites I connected to simply did not work, but I will list them.
    If you have luck with any sites, please share with the rest of the list if you would.
    I'll be in row HH, so I won't know how any of these sites are doing at game time.

    Sites tend to require you turn your pop-up blockers off, and take advantage of that
    by throwing up pop-up ads. Most also ask you to register, but it's optional.

    Main Rams webcast sites:
    Click the "listen live" link. Took a couple of minutes to come up this
    Red "LISTEN LIVE ONLINE" link at very top of page. Connected pretty
    quickly, & I'm on a dialup connection.

    Worth a try:
    Click "Listen Online" link on the left hand side. This will be a Bears
    broadcast, and it's the only Chicago feed I checked into. I found it
    at, so it's been
    researched, and I'd imagine it's as reliable as KLOU or KTRS.
    KREF Norman/Oklahoma City:
    *May* be carrying tonight's game. Listen Live link on right side
    of home page towards the top. And you'll have to download and
    install the "SurferNETWORK Player", 5-7 minutes on dialup.
    When the player pops up, you have to click the Tuner button
    in the upper left corner to start the audio. But the audio works,
    the Rams Radio Network has KREF on its list, and KREF's
    website has the Rams logo on its homepage.

    Sites I couldn't get audio out of:
    (They all use, so it could be me)
    Connected but no audio
    Extreme difficulty connecting, no audio when I did

    Streamaudio window filled with errors

    Low/unknown chance of available webcast:
    XTRA San Diego:
    Audio works, is listed on Rams Radio Network web page,
    but website says they're not allowed to broadcast games online.
    Click on "Click here to listen to XTRA Sports 690/1150!".
    Was reliable last year but they only appear to be webcasting local
    college games now. No audio this afternoon.
    KSHP Las Vegas:
    Site tuned in fine this afternoon, and they're on the Rams Radio
    Network web page, but I don't see on their site that they're planning
    to carry any Rams games this year.

    Good hunting

      Thanks Dez.

      Those Radio broadcasts were a b!tch last year. It would break every five minutes. Sucks the NFL wants so much money all the time with even internet radio broadcasts.

        Notes about the Game today.
        by psycho9985
        Inside Slant | Notes and Quotes | Strategy and Personnel
        Coach Mike Martz is adamant that the club's special teams will improve, despite the numerous problems that occurred in San Francisco in the season opener.

        "Oh, I'm very confident. This is going to work fine," he said. "This guy that is coaching the special teams (Bob Ligashesky) is outstanding. He is very superior, and I really, truly mean that. This guy is special. We have some young guys that need to step up that haven't. We trusted them in a vital role and they didn't play well. We will replace them with some veterans if we have to. But that is their role. That is their job. I don't care who is coaching or what team they are on. They have to step up and make plays."
        Asked about rookies adjusting to regular-season intensity, Martz said, "They get sunburned on the roof of their mouth. Even for guys that have been playing in the league for a long time, when you get out of the preseason and you play that first game, especially a division game, that has a lot of chemistry to it, there is a lot of electricity in the air. It's fast, it's really fast, and they have to get used to it."
        --RT Rex Tucker injured his calf against San Francisco and will be out an undetermined amount of time. Tucker was wearing a boot in practice Wednesday, and could miss a few weeks.
        --OL Blaine Saipaia is expected to be the starter Sunday at right tackle against Arizona, replacing an injured Rex Tucker. Saipaia started seven games at the position last season (including two playoff games).
        --G Claude Terrell was inactive for his first NFL game Sunday, but could be in uniform this week because of the injury suffered by OT Rex Tucker.
        --CB Terry Fair has been running and is getting closer to playing as he recovers from a neck injury.
        --CB Chris Johnson is expected to remain as the team's kickoff returner, despite averaging only 13.8 yards a return in the opener against the ***** and stepping out of bounds at the 1-yard line on the first play of the game.
        GAME PLAN: Offensively, the Rams will try to run the ball better than they did against San Francisco and build a lead so they don't have to call 65 pass plays.
        On defense, after stopping the ***** ground game, the Rams will try to do the same against Arizona, which struggled running in the opener against the Giants
        Rams DLE Leonard Little vs. Cardinals RT Oliver Ross - Little had two sacks and a forced fumble against the ***** and is looking to keep those happening after a statistically subpar year in 2004.
        Rams RT Blaine Saipaia vs. Cardinals DLE Chike Okeafor - Assuming Saipaia gets the start at right tackle, he will have to handle the non-stop motor of Okeafor. That's a matchup the ornery Saipaia should be OK with. However, the Cardinals could flip-flop their ends and have Bertrand Berry play some...

        PLUS FACTORS: The receiving unit remains one of the league's best. The skills of Isaac Bruce, 31, don't appear to be diminishing, and Torry Holt has reached the elite level. But the real news is the depth that has developed in the form of Dane Looker, Shaun McDonald, Kevin Curtis and Mike Furrey. McDonald, in particular, had a strong preseason. The young linebackers appear poised to break out. MLB Robert Thomas and OLB Pisa Tinoisamoa have superior speed and instincts but must stay healthy and play smarter. OLB Tommy Polley has been in the doghouse much of the preseason but remains an asset in coverage. Not only is Leonard Little a premier pass rusher, he's also among the top all-around ends and can change a game single-handedly. No lineman in the league has better pursuit skills. Even if RB Marshall Faulk has trouble staying healthy, rookie Steven Jackson has showed he can be an exciting replacement.

        MINUS SIDE: The offensive line is a mess.

        LT Orlando Pace missed all of camp for the second straight year in a contract squabble; C Dave Wohlabaugh (hip) was released after failing a physical; and RT Kyle Turley (back) is out for the season. Grant Williams, Turley's likely replacement, isn't physically gifted but should be solid. Andy McCollum, the starter at left guard last year, will play center. The left guard is Chris Dishman, who was talked out of retirement and needs time to round into shape. The defensive line is thin after the loss RE Grant Wistrom and DT Brian Young as free agents and the loss of reserve DT Jimmy Kennedy (foot) for much of the season. Fullback and tight end were problem areas a year ago, and little has changed. FB Joey Goodspeed and TE Brandon Manumaleuna had good camps but remain unproven. The loss of CB Travis Fisher (arm) for most of the year puts pressure on a young corner (DeJuan Groce or Kevin Garrett) to come through. The team may have to consider moving FS Aeneas Williams to corner.

        THOMAS' BOTTOM LINE: At the start of training camp, this team had fewer questions than the 2003 squad that finished 12-4. But injuries at key positions have changed that outlook. Without a healthy, proven line, the team won't score as it did last season. As a result, the Rams are looking at a 9-7 or 10-6 record and will be scrambling to make the playoffs.

        The Rams signed safety Deandre' Eiland, who spent time on the Dolphins' and *****' practice squads this season.
        QUARTERBACKS: Starter - Marc Bulger. Backups - Jamie Martin, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Jeff Smoker.
        Bulger played just eight games because of a shoulder injury yet passed for 2,297 yards with a rating of 94.4. He'll be adjusting to a new coach, but he is developing into an excellent player. The Rams just have to find a way to keep him healthy.
