As I read through all of the blogs and scour all the NFL sites, it seems as though the Rams players are the ones getting most of the criticism. Although it is very true that they are looking pretty bad on the field, how many years now have they looked bad? How many players have been traded away from the Rams to go and excel somewhere else? Are all of the hundreds of players that have come, gone, or still remain that bad? Once they cross the state line into MO, is it the water that turns our NFL hopefuls into NFL mediocres? How on earth can we say it’s all the players faults? We need a serious meeting to be conducted by Stan Kroenke. We need him to start growing a pair and start cracking the whip. If he feels Spags has lost the team or is too nice or can’t rally the troops to be competitive on a football field, then get rid of him. If he needs to open up his darn pocketbook and get us some real receivers, running backs, and defensive backs, then do it. If he thinks Devaney is a little weasle/cheeseball, then find someone else. Make sure the guys in charge of our drafts know what the hell they are doing too while you’re at it. I don’t mind losing games, but the way in which we are losing them is 100% pathetic. Build around Sam. Your attempt at building around him this past offseason was borderline laughable. Kroenke cares so much about his appearance that we always see him in the finest suits and he has one hell of a toupee. So come on Stan clean house or straighten these guys out. You know how to win.

About the Author
My name is Darryn Yates. I pretty much have 2 passions in life besides family and they are sports & music. I was born and raised in Granite City, IL, right across the Mississippi River from St. Louis; my dad was a high school football coach and my mother was a teacher. I moved to southern California in 1993 before the Rams moved to St. Louis. I followed the Rams religiously since St. Louis had no team; the Cardinals had moved to Arizona. I ended up moving back to the St. Louis area in 2005. I am a rock musician (singer/songwriter of the band On Tracy Lane). Besides St. Louis, I have lived in Normal IL, San Diego CA, Pomona CA, Los Angeles CA, and Nashville TN. My music has taken me all over the country and to Greenland where I performed for the US troops. Writing has always been a strong point of mine; it comes very natural to me. Plus, I have a lot to say about sports in our world today and the St. Louis Rams. I welcome you to The Rams Rock Report - a view on sports, particularly the Rams, with a rock n' roll flavor to it. Whatever that means.
