Ramblin’ Fans’ Monday Morning Links: Diamonds In The Rough, Browner Choking, And Top 100 Snubs


Wow, Monday already? Happy belated-Father’s Day to all the dads out there in Rams Nations! Between the U.S. Open and the NBA Finals, there was surely enough to keep you preoccupied through the weekend.

Who’s really in charge? Stellar power structures boost NFC West

Glancing over the “top guys” in the NFC West, it appears as though “new” is the popular trend sweeping the front offices. As for the Rams, specifically, it is refreshing to read the comments about Jeff Fisher, coming from someone outside of the organization.
