Rams Give Offensive Linemen Extra Look –PD

• By Jim Thomas

MOBILE, ALA. • Fifteen minutes into the first Senior Bowl practice of the week, Rams general manager Les Snead stood maybe 10 feet from the North squad offensive linemen, watching intently as they went through drill work.

It is a telling indication of how important the offensive line is to the Rams in 2015. Yes, the quarterback situation is the No. 1 priority, but the Rams need blockers. And possibly more than one.

At a minimum we’re talking about a starting guard to replace Davin Joseph. At center, Scott Wells’ future in St. Louis may depend on what the new offensive coordinator thinks.

15 Years Ago Friday, the Buccaneers Gave the Rams the Ultimate Scare –PFT

Posted by Mike Wilkening

Fifteen years ago Friday, one of the biggest upsets in postseason history came oh-so-close to being sprung.

The Buccaneers, 14.5-point underdogs, gave the Rams all they could handle in the 1999 NFC Championship, but they fell just short in an 11-6 loss in St. Louis.

The Buccaneers picked off Rams quarterback Kurt Warner three times. They shut down the St. Louis running game, limiting Marshall Faulk to just 44 yards on 17 carries. But St. Louis managed the game’s only touchdown — a Warner-to-Ricky Proehl 30-yard strike with 4:44 left — and that was the decisive blow. The Bucs put together one final promising drive that reached the St. Louis 22, but the Rams pushed them back, got a favorable call on a potential Bert Emanuel catch and held on for the win.

Plays That Shaped the Rams’ Season: No. 6 –Wagoner

By Nick Wagoner

EARTH CITY, Mo. — After a 7-9 finish in 2013, the St. Louis Rams entered the 2014 season with postseason visions in their heads. To get there, the Rams figured to have to navigate one of the toughest schedules in the league, which meant getting a win in the season opener at home against the Minnesota Vikings would be pretty much mandatory.

It didn’t happen.

After a slow first half in which the Rams went into the locker room trailing 13-0, St. Louis managed a field goal to make it 13-3. Although there were no signs of the offense getting into a rhythm after the loss of quarterback Shaun Hill to a quad injury, the Rams had managed to contain running back Adrian Peterson and were still in the game. Then Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson struck.
