Rams Coaching Search to Include Steve Spagnuolo and Josh McDaniels
by November 30, 1999 @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Jan 6th 2009 11:32PM by Matt Snyder (author feed)
Filed under: Giants, Patriots, Rams, AFC East, NFC East, NFC West, NFL Coaching The St. Louis Rams interviewed Jim Haslett — who served as the interim head coach when Scott Linehan was mercifully let go after four games — Monday for their head coaching vacancy. I think we can all agree that it was a token interview. Sure, the Rams have a billion holes to fill, and Steven Jackson was hurt for much of the second half of the season, but Haslett didn’t really do anything to distinguish himself. He stormed out of the gate with two victories, but then lost the Rams’ last ten games — many in embarrassing fashion.

Two very intriguing names are on the Rams’ radar, though. They plan on interviewing 32 year-old Josh McDaniels for the job, and they have received permission from the Patriots. He’s currently their offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Obviously the work of Mr. Matt Cassel has made this young coach a hot commodity. We know the Patriots offense could score points, so the Rams could do much worse.Continue Reading

Garth DeFelice Will Not Be Needing a Football Helmet for Protection, Thank You Very Much

During yesterday’s CBS Pregame Show, Charley Casserly’s wig made its usual appearance to discuss news from around the league. It was the typical fare: so-and-so is on the hot seat, whatshisname could get make bank this offseason, blah blah blah.

But then Casserly busted out this gem: in the wake of referee Jeff Triplette getting helped to his face during last week’s Bills-Jets game, there have been discussions about how to make officials safer as they wade through 22 muscle-bound meatheads for three hours every Sunday.

One possibility: equipping umpires (the poor souls who stand just behind the inside linebackers before the snap and are often target practice anytime the ball makes its way to the middle of the field) with helmets. Seriously. Casserly opines that either a baseball helmet (the two-ear-flap Mark Lemke special) or maybe even a football helmet could be part of the required uniform in 2009.

Fantastic.

I get the whole safety issue because, well, a 250-pound, 20-something linebacker running through a 180-bound, 60-year-old accountant working his part-time gig can be pretty dangerous. But the thought of some old-timer lining up in a full-on officials uniform WITH a football helmet seems ridiculous. It’s hard enough to take them seriously when they’re just wearing a striped shirt and baseball pants. Adding a helmet probably won’t help.

Whatever comes of this, I’m guessing Garth DeFelice won’t be donning a helmet anytime soon. The photo above shows DeFelice Deebo-ing the Rams’ Kenneth Darby, and if you’re into the whole moving-pictures thing, here ya go:Continue Reading

Ref Garth DeFelice Tackles St. Louis Rams’ Kenneth Darby

Filed under: 49ers, Rams, NFL VideoDuring today’s Rams-49ers game, St. Louis running back Kenneth Darby was tackled by Garth DeFelice:

No, DeFelice doesn’t play for the 49ers, he was the umpire in the game. But with Darby coming at him, DeFelice delivered a forearm shiver, reminiscent of the hit that umpire Wilbur Hackett Jr., put on South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia in October.

The official play-by-play at NFL.com says 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis made the tackle. That, however, is not what happened.

St. Louis Rams Players Rightfully Peeved Their Punter is Not a Pro-Bowler

Filed under: Rams, NFC West When you are 2-12 — and probably worse than the 0-14 team — you shouldn’t expect to see any of your players headed to Honolulu for the Pro Bowl in February, unless he’s having an individually historic season. So, when the St. Louis Rams players are complaining about the snub of their punter, Donnie Jones, your initial inclination is to just tell them to shut up. Except for one thing, Jones kind of is having a historic season.

- Jones averages over 50 yards per punt. The only other person in the history of the NFL to average over 50 yards a punt? It happened in 1940. Coincidentally, he passed away yesterday. The great Sammy Baugh did it for the Redskins.

-Also: Jones’ net average is an NFC-best 40.9 yards; the league record, dating to 1976, is 41.1, set last year by Oakland’s Shane Lechler. I guess it would make more sense if Jones was brutal at pinning opposition in the red-zone, but he’s done so 18 times with only five touchbacks. Basically, if you look at the numbers in front of you, it’s obvious he’s punting from deep in Rams territory frequently this season, and bailing them out.Continue Reading

Zebra Report: Controversy Swirls Once Again

Filed under: 49ers, Bengals, Dolphins, Giants, Rams, Ravens, Redskins, Seahawks, Steelers, AFC East, AFC North, NFC East, NFC West, NFL Media Watch, Overpaid NFL Players, NFL RefereesWow, this was a long weekend to those who support the boys in stripes. That group may only consist of myself at this point, but I still do. Those people who like to call the officials “blind” — which, by the way, is incredibly uncreative and lame — or believe they are out to screw a team out of a game, really don’t have any idea what it takes to officiate at that level. Hell, I don’t. I do know what it’s like to be on the field and be a constant scapegoat for people who aren’t accountable for themselves and/or their favorite team.

Torry Holt Accuses Referee of Cheating in Battle of 2-11 Teams
by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Dec 15th 2008 12:30PM by Adam Gretz (author feed)
Filed under: Rams, Seahawks, NFL Referees While the NFL story of the day is the touchdown call in the Steelers-Ravens game, there was another referee controversy to come out of Sunday’s action. The only reason nobody seems to be outraged by this one is, presumably, because it involved Seattle and St. Louis, a pair of teams who entered play this week with a combined record of 4-22.

Of course, that shouldn’t matter, because everyone plays for the same reason — to win the game. So let’s evenly distribute our anger, football fans.

According to St. Louis wide receiver Torry Holt, the referees in Sunday’s game used the stadium’s video screen to call a questionable pass interference call on Holt, negating a 20-yard completion. Here’s what Holt had to say after the game:”He said he looked up in the Jumbotron and saw that I pushed off,” said Holt, who is in his 10th year with the Rams (2-12). “I told him I never extended my arm. It is one thing if you extended, because that is pass interference. But everything was in motion catching the football. I don’t even know if I had my hands on the guy. “That was his explanation, and I told him it was a bad call.”Continue Reading

Seahawks 23, Rams 20: Rams Defense Fizzles Late in the Game
by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Dec 14th 2008 4:27PM by Matt Snyder (author feed)
Filed under: Rams, Seahawks, NFC West At one point early in the second half, the St. Louis Rams had out-gained the Seattle Seahawks by nearly double. They did not, however, close out the game on offense or defense. When the dust settled, the Rams only amassed nine more yards than the Seahawks, and they ran 10 more plays. They also won the time of possession battle by nearly eight minutes. And they still came up short.

Just in case anyone thinks Jim Haslett is really going to retain this job because of winning his first two games, today was yet another reminder on how the Rams need to dismantle this team. Richie Incognito was penalized with regularity, the offense fumbled twice — one was taken back for a touchdown — and solid offensive efforts from Marc Bulger and Steven Jackson were wasted.

Torry Holt Has Odd Way of Showing Respect for Mike Holmgren
by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Dec 11th 2008 10:40AM by Bruce Ciskie (author feed)
Filed under: Rams, Seahawks, NFC West, NFL Coaching In one of this weekend’s highlight matchups*, the Seattle Seahawks travel east to play in St. Louis.

During the week, it’s rather customary for star players on one of the participating teams to do a conference call with the media that cover the other team.

Wednesday, Torry Holt of the Rams did such a call with the Seattle media, and he was asked about outgoing Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren. Holt has never played for Holmgren, but is quite familiar with him because the Seahawks and Rams have been divisional foes for a few years now.

As noted by the , Holt is extremely familiar with Holmgren’s ways.
I think this is a compliment. I’d take it as one if anyone ever said it about me. I also love how Holt preceded his comments with “excuse my French”. It’s nice to know people still occasionally apologize for swearing in public settings.

(* - Probably not true. After all, who can forget about Chargers-Chiefs?)

Arizona Cardinals Win First Division Title Ever
by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Dec 7th 2008 7:40PM by Matt Snyder (author feed)
Filed under: AZ Cardinals, Rams, NFC West The last time the Cardinals franchise won a division title, they played their games in Busch Stadium. They were the Saint Louis Cardinals. Coincidentally, they pasted the hapless current St. Louis team today at home to clinch the NFC West.

While it was no surprise the 2008 Cardinals easily handled the 2008 Rams — 34-10 — let us examine how rare an occurrence this is.

- The Cardinals franchise has only finished above .500 four times since 1976.

- The Cardinals franchise has not won their division since a strike-shortened 5-4 record was good enough in 1982. In the past 25 years, the Cardinals had only made the playoffs once — when Jake Plummer took them on a 9-7 whirlwind in 1998.

- Since moving to Arizona, the Cardinals have lost at least 10 games 13 times in 20 seasons.

I could go on and on, but you get the point. This was one futile organization. I’ll admit that when covering a team who is not your favorite, you still develop some love for the team. I’ve been rooting for these guys to do well, and they are a likable bunch from top to bottom. To the true Arizona Cardinals fans — who have been with the team since the beginning — you really deserve this. Enjoy it, and hopefully it’s simply the start of things to come.Continue Reading

Jim Haslett and Steven Jackson are Fine, Ready to Concentrate on Playoff Run
by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Dec 5th 2008 11:45AM by Matt Snyder (author feed)
Filed under: Rams, NFC West, NFL Injuries, NFL Coaching Earlier in the week in camp Ram, there was slight a tiff between Coach Jim Haslett and his star running back, Steven Jackson. It was evident the tension stemmed from a preseason holdout by Jackson, and Jackson was seemingly growing tired of hearing insinuations that his holdout meant he wasn’t conditioned as well as he should have been for this season.

Now, a few days later, the Rams’ two biggest names seem to have put this behind them and they are ready to focus on steering this stellar 2-10 ship to a successful conclusion. “We’re fine,” Haslett said Thursday. “There’s no issues at all, nothing at all. He’s a good guy, works hard, and we’re just glad to have him back and ready to go.”Said Jackson:”Me and Coach Haslett, we’re good. We’ve been able to kind of look back at that (sound bite) and just laugh about it. Everything’s fine. … He explained it to me like he explained it to you guys. He was more talking about the quad muscle fatiguing and not so much my lung capacity.”Continue Reading
