Talk about an exciting weekend, right? The preseason is nearly over, and, for the Rams, the next game is only a couple of days away. After our Thursday night bout with the Baltimore Ravens, it will be “all Arizona, all the time.” However, we have to live in the moment, not in the future; and, so we still need to look over the victories and mistakes from the Saturday matchup against the Denver Broncos. Here is some of the best stuff from the weekend.
Prior to the start of the Denver Broncos’ game, Jeff Fisher suggested that the St. Louis Rams would likely take the “path less traveled,” playing their starters in the fourth preseason game as much, if not more, than in the third game. Typically, the last preseason bout is merely a battle between fringe players, an opportunity to get some film before the 75-man roster is cut down to the final 53 players. After watching his defensive players get nearly 50 snaps in the first half, Fisher might be re-thinking his position.
What do a handful of lucky catches, a forced fumble by Luke Kuechly, and a kick return all have in common? They are apparently all more impressive than forcing a fumble, recovering it, and returning it for a touchdown on national television. Tisk, tisk NFL… tisk tisk…
Lets just say you were in a coma, or have been out of the country for the last two months. How would you go about learning everything that happened at Rams Camp this offseason without trolling through hundreds of articles. The answer? Look no further than Nate Horgan, writer for the official St. Louis Rams website, who has pieced together a brilliant article that will recap everything you would want to know about camp this year, and what to look forward to in the future.
If you missed Jeff Fisher’s press conference yesterday, the entire Q & A was filled with subtle hints and small “door openings.” Fisher mentioned that he would be naming some starters, while leaving the door open for some to potentially earn a spot. Ryan Van Bibber recaps two of the more important notes.
Sometimes, we get sucked into our own little world during the NFL season, surrounding ourselves with Rams’ fan and reading content primarily written by authors with a slight St. Louis’ bias. So, if you are interested in seeing how the mainstream NFL media recapped the Rams game on Saturday, take a look.
