Can’t Catch a Break

Can’t catch a break. When it rains, it pours. This happens every year. Whatever the cliché, here we are: week 8 has just come to a close and, likely with it, whatever slight chance the Rams may have had at making a run at the playoffs. To be fair, it was a bit of a…

Addition by Division, Subtraction

Seahawks. See Hawks Lose. Lose, Hawks, lose! I believe it was esteemed poet-laureate and outstanding public speaker Ric Flair who said, “WHOOOOOOOOOO!” That’s more like it!

Battle between Good and Eagle

Well, thank Staced God that week is over. The only thing worse than frustrating St. Louis football is no St. Louis football. Fortunately, it looks like we’ll be getting back to the latter this week, as the Rams look to cash in at Lincoln Financial Field on a date with the Eagles and their decimated…
