St. Louis Rams owner’s bid to buy L.A. Dodgers problem for NFL

St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke and his attempt to purchase the Los Angeles Dodgers came up yesterday at the NFL owners meeting in Palm Beach. If Kroenke beats out the other two remaining bidders for the MLB franchise, the Stl. Rams could become the L.A. Rams once again.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell addressed the matter of the league’s cross ownership rules and Kroenke’s bid to be a baseball owner.

“I have told Commissioner Selig this, if he [Kroenke] is ultimately the winning bid, then we would immediately move with our committees and our membership to have the discussion. So we would move as quickly as possible knowing that it is an important issue for baseball,” Goodell said.

St. Louis Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has apologizing to the NFL, to Rams coach Jeff Fisher, the organization and NFL football fans in general for managing a bounty pool while he held the same position with the New Orleans Saints.

Williams was suspended indefinitely on Wednesday by the NFL, and the Rams say he’ll be eligible for reinstatement after this season.

What should the St. Louis Rams do with their draft picks?

stl-rams

Yes, I know the Rams are going to trade this pick! I get that.  And it’s likely going to be to the Browns. Or the Redskins, or to whoever wants Robert Griffin 3 the most, but I don’t do trades in my mock. So let’s look at where they might go, if they don’t deal the pick.

London Calling! Stl. Rams to play 3 “home” Games in Britain

Maybe there really is something to the St. Louis Rams possibly leaving for another city. And maybe they will play better on Greenwich Mean Time than they do in the Central time zone. Friday the Rams, who own the second pick in this year’s NFL draft, just two years after owning the number one overall draft choice, agreed to play a regular-season NFL game in London in each of the next three seasons.

And first up is “America’s Team” (ok not really, that’s the Dallas Cowboys) the New England Patriots, who are just two wins from another Super Bowl title.

Who do St. Louis Rams Draft at #2 Overall?

stl-rams

Everyone knows Andrew Luck is going first overall to the Indianapolis Colts. When his name is called on draft day it will be as big a surprise as the day former N’Sync member and pop star Lance Bass officially came out of the closet.

The real draft begins at number two. And gets more interesting at number three and so on.

What do the Rams do? With Sam Bradford, the 2010 overall #1 pick under center, I can’t see them going quarterback. Yes, Bradford and the offense took significant steps back in 2011, but Sam is the man of the future. Also, Matt Barkley decided to stay in school, and I believe if you can’t get Luck or Barkley, than the Rams might as well stay with the girl they brought to the dance. Robert Griffin III and Landry Jones are fine prospects, but not good enough to give up on Bradford for.

Denver Broncos Trade Brandon Lloyd to Stl. Rams for Draft Pick

Before the hysteria of Tim Tebow fever engulfs Denver with certain religious fervor, Denver Broncos fans will have to realize St. Tebow will not have his top target and main weapon when he makes his first start of the season.

The Denver Broncos traded Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Lloyd, the league’s leading receiver in 2010, to the St. Louis Rams for a conditional 2012 draft pick.

Curious timing, as the deal comes a week after Tebow officially took over for Kyle Orton at QB1.

When Will the St. Louis Rams Actually Win a Game?

So much for the 2010 bump into mediocrity, the St. Louis Rams are looking like the 1-15 bunch from 2009 again. 7-9 looks like a pipe dream for a bunch that has been out-scored 96-34 so far. And what were they doing on Monday Night Football a couple weeks ago?

This sad sack bunch was on the NFL primetime showcase game? Really? Sadly, they’re probably not the worst team in the Midwest, as the Indianapolis Colts and Minnesota Vikings look equally putrid. But I don’t think Indy and Minny will get a W before the Stl. Due to the Rams schedule.

St. Louis Rams, Detroit Lions Coaches Make BONEHEAD Decisions

Why on Earth were Steven Jackson and Sam Bradford still in the game during the waning moments of the Saint Louis Rams thrashing at the hands of the Detroit Lions?

The Rams are currently in the race for the NFC West title, even with a mediocre record thus far. Jim Schwartz and Steve Spagnuolo must have been out late at the MGM the night before the noon kickoff. There is no fathomable excuse as to why Sam Bradford would be taking snaps in the last drive of a game that ended up 44-6. It even builds morale for the back-up quarterback if he is able to go under center and gain some valuable game experience.

It also gives the coach an insurance policy in case his golden boy, Bradford, is lost to injury.
