First off, this is my fourth post today, that has got to be a Rams blog record. Let me know when the Blogger Hall of Fame gets invented, I want in.
-The Rams were unable to get an extension on their blackout deadline. The result? This sunday’s game versus the Texans has been blacked out.
-For those who for some reason care, G Richie Incognito was claimed off waivers this morning by the Buffalo Bills. The Miami Dolphins put in a claim on the tattooed penalty champ as well, but due to the Bills having a worse record, they were “awarded” Incognito. Congratulations Buffalo, hope you enjoy needing to go 20+ yards for a first down.
-G Jacob Bell has been placed on IR, and filling his roster spot will be Ryan McKee, an offensive tackle claimed off of waivers from the New York Jets. I’m going to be honest here, I know absolutely nothing about McKee, so I won’t rant about how he has good size, great length, yada yada yada.
-Quote of the Day: “I passed along to Spags and Billy. I told them they’re doing a wonderful job. I really do think Spags is doing a great job. It’s obvious what the team needs here _ and it’s talent. It’s not a lack of coaching. And it’s not a lack of desire. It’s just a lack of talent right now. And they’ll get that sorted out. They’re the right men for the job.” -Richie Incognito shortly after his release
The funny thing is, I feel this team is now more talented now that you’ve left Richie. And yes, we are getting it sorted out. It all started with the release of our worst player…you.
