Are Any Rams Going To The Pro Bowl in 2015?

Are Any Rams Going To The Pro Bowl in 2015?

You can help your favorite St. Louis Rams’ player take a trip to Hawaii. Which ones, if any, are worthy of a trip to the 2015 Pro Bowl? Last year, the Rams sent defensive end Robert Quinn and punter Johnny Hekker to the Pro Bowl.  It marked the first time the team had sent multiple players since 2006, when Torry Holt and Marc Bulger to Aloha Stadium. Quinn finished second in the NFL in sacks [19] in 2013, coming up just shy [by 0.5 sacks] of winning the first ever Deacon Jones Sack Award.  Hekker played a massive part in the team’s special team efforts, punting the ball 78...

NFL trade deadline: Miami Dolphins possiblities

The NFL trade deadline is next Tuesday and unless I miss my guess, the day will likely come and go without a blockbuster to shake things up. That's the NFL, where significant midseason trades simply don't happen very often. But...

Brett Favre's mission: to surpass that in a single game. We realize how impossible this sounds.

Friday morning links and notes: Why hasn't the pass rush been as good this season?

The above question is one that Jayson  Jenks attempted to answer in his story for the Friday paper. As Jenks notes, one possible reason for the struggles is that Seattle is having to rely too much on just a few players to get the job done up front. What was one of Seattle's greatest attributes a year ago was a deep and versatile defensive line that allowed the Seahawks to keep their players well-rested while also mixing and matching personnel to best fit the opponent and situation. But the losses of the likes of Red Bryant, Chris Clemons and Clint McDonald changed the dynamic, and Seattle...

Redskins vs. Cowboys preview

For the 16th time on “Monday Night Football,” the Dallas Cowboys will meet the Washington Redskins. Only the Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos (17) have met on "Monday Night Football" more. The Cowboys come in with a six-game winning streak, their longest since 2007, and the Redskins halted a four-game losing streak last week. Just looking at the records -- Cowboys 6-1 and Redskins 2-5 -- this should be an easy win for Dallas. But that is not the case in this series.

The Washington Redskins' Real Quarterback Controversy

We know who the starter will be. But who's the back-up? The Washington Redskins are about to have a quarterback controversy on their hands. No, I don't mean the manufactured version from a few weeks (and 11 Kirk Cousins turnovers) ago.  I mean a genuine debate without a clear-cut answer. The Griffin / Cousins controversy was largely insincere.  Griffin was always going to win that (non-)battle.  Admittedly, I'm an RG3 guy.  As I've said before, there's no doubt in my mind a healthy Griffin is the best quarterback the Redskins have, and potentially one of the better quarterbacks in the...

Behind Enemy Lines: free agent duds, Glennon at QB and more with beat writer Greg Auman

With a new week brings another edition of “Behind Enemy Lines.” For the Vikings’ Week 8 road trip against the Bucs, we spoke to beat writer Greg Auman, who covers the team for the Tampa Bay Times. Here are five questions we asked Auman about Sunday’s game. 1. The Bucs spent so much money in free agency but have just one win. What hasn’t gone right? GA: Those free agents are a good start to what hasn’t gone right. Michael Johnson hasn’t gotten pressure at defensive end, Anthony Collins hasn’t been the reliable answer they needed him to be at left tackle. Evan Dietrich-Smith and...

Broncos throttle Chargers with two-touchdown lead Thursday night

Oh what a difference a year can make! Ten months after being surprised at home by the San Diego Chargers 27-20, the Denver Broncos reminded Philip Rivers and company who owns Mile High. Except for a scoreboard operator, some slow drives at the beginning and a few twitchy balls, it was another stellar game for the Denver Broncos, who stifled AFC West foe San Diego Chargers in fantastic fashion Thursday night, winning 35-21. VICTORY!!!! #Salute pic.twitter.com/iqpgyKoeY6 — Emmanuel Sanders (@ESanders_10) October 24, 2014 Emmanuel Sanders was insanely good. Ronnie Hillman was running...

Five Falcons-Lions Questions With Pride of Detroit

The questions and answers that matter for the matchup between the Falcons and Lions. We had the opportunity to ask five questions of Sean Yuille, head honcho at SB Nation's Lions blog, Pride of Detroit. They follow. Dave Choate: Matthews Stafford has had a relatively quiet season thus far. How much of that is due to Calvin Johnson, the offensive line and Stafford himself, and how much might be due to play calling? Sean Yuille: I tend to think all of those things are equally contributing to the Lions' struggles on offense. Stafford hasn't played very well this season, but a lot things have...
