Sports Open Line: Zac Stacy, Russ Lande, Steve Carroll, & Rick Carpenter
“I really enjoyed my rookie season,” Stacy said on The Doug Gottlieb Show. “I’ve learned a lot. It’s an amazing opportunity, and it’s a blessing to be a part of an organization like the Rams and just being in the NFL. “
The St. Louis Rams worked through injuries, dealt some harsh blows at times and suffered losses that they really should have won — but they were right on the cusp of the playoffs. A lot was shown in 2013, and this season paves the way for the next step that could very well come in 2014.
The St. Louis Rams were hoping to end the season on a high note and a three-game winning streak while playing the role of spoiler for the Seattle Seahawks. Unfortunately, they played one of their worst games of the season and finished the year with a loss.
The St. Louis Rams are setting out to prove something to the rest of the NFL, and they know it could mean risking a lot more than they gain. Still, they’re going to leave nothing behind and put it all out as the final game of the season arrives.
The St. Louis Rams have found ways to win even if it is too late in the season for it to matter a whole lot. Still, the victories they’re racking up aren’t slight wins but they are rather impressive and showing a lot of promise for the future.
Running back Zac Stacy topped 100 yards rushing, & the defense punished the Tampa Bay offense.
The St. Louis Rams are no longer “The Greatest Show on Turf”. In fact, the team’s victory over the visiting New Orleans Saints was the polar opposite of the formula used in the early 2000’s, where a high-powered offense ruled the day. The current Rams are quickly creating an identity as a defensive juggernaut, something that has to please head coach Jeff Fisher.
Underdogs come up big with takeaways & trickery
Rams’ first-round draft pick made an electrifying 56-yard run that set up St. Louis’ lone touchdown on Sunday, but suffered an ankle injury on the play and missed the rest of the game.
