  • Training Camp

    “Each year we will explore all options for training camp.” said Head Coach Steve Spagnuolo. “This year we feel it is in the best interest of our football team to conduct training camp at Russell Training Center.”


    I guess I'll be spending some time in Earth City soon.

    Translation: To the surprise of absolutely no one, we had no luck prising the rent for a place with less humidity than St. Louis in the summer (ie, just about any place besides a tropical rain forest) out of Chippy Boy.

    I honestly wonder what this team's conditioning would be like if camp was held in a place where you could actually get a decent practice in outside during the day.

        Since conditioning appears to be one of the larger problems confronting this team the last few years, it seems logical to me that we need to hold training camp in a place that you can get more practice in during the day without running afoul of the NFL's post-Korey Stringer workout and practice restrictions in heat. The climate at Mequon was great for the team doing just that. The climate in St. Louis, which is in a lowland surrounded by two rivers....not so much.

          I actually agree with you on this issue *cough* checks outside to make sure earth is still spinning in proper orbit *cough*, but how well did the Rams perform after holding training camp in Wisconsin 2 years ago?

          Seems to me that the injuries and conditioning issues were about the same overall.

          Having said that, however, I do tend to agree that moving TC to a more weather-friendly environment would seem to be a more viable option to help improve the performance of a team that has won 6 games over the past 3 years.

          WHAT SAY YE?

            Training Camp Merchandise
            by DJRamFan
            For those in and around Macomb and St. Louis, do the Rams sell merchandise for the training camp. Here in Rochester they sell hats and shirts and stuff that say things like "Bills training camp....Pittsford, NY" etc. Just wondering if the Rams did that too.

            Rams Camp at a Glance: Aug. 5
            by RamWraith
            Injured: CB Jerametrius Butler (hamstring), LB Brandon Chillar (shoulder), TE Cam Cleeland (hamstring), CB Robert Cromartie (hamstring), CB Travis Fisher (knee), DE Anthony Hargrove (knee and ankle), FB Erik Jensen (knee), G Ryan Schau (back), LB Brandon Spoon (hamstring), OT Kyle Turley (back), C Dave Wohlabaugh (hip).

            Absent: OT Orlando Pace (contract).

            Today's schedule: The Rams and the Chicago Bears will practice at 3:45 p.m. Time is subject to change. For up-to-date practice information, call toll-free 1-866-726-7226. Practices are free and open to the public.

            Bits and pieces:

            Backup QB Chris Chandler, who has struggled with his throws at times, was sharp Wednesday morning. He connected with WRs Torry Holt and Dane Looker for TDs on successive series in 9-on-7 drills.

            Second-year WR Kevin Curtis appears to be fully recovered from the leg injury that scuttled most of his rookie season and is having a strong camp.

            S Rich Coady did limited work after missing several days because of back spasms. Rookie LB Brandon Chillar is out with a shoulder injury.

            Overheard

            "Obviously, it'll be a little slower version of our receivers, but it is what it is. It's just practice."
            - S Adam Archuleta, taking a mild shot at the Bears' receivers.

            "Joey's a guy you can take for granted real easy. But he's absolutely in the center of everything that we do offensively. He's been a big plus for us since we added him last year."
            - Coach Mike Martz, on FB Joey Goodspeed.

            "It feels good to go out there and run the rock again. That's what I've done all my life."
            - Dusty McGrorty, an undrafted rookie from Southern Oregon who is getting plenty of work at tailback and fullback
