A Gamble Worth Making: Rams Get Stafford for Goff and Three Picks

February 3rd, 2021 · No Comments · Football, NFL, Rams

I am not going to argue against any reasonable trade the Rams could make to replace Jared Goff at quarterback. And I certainly will not criticize a deal that brings in clutch quarterback Matthew Stafford from the Detroit Lions in exchange for Goff and three high draft picks. It was in the middle of this […]

Rams Left Out in the Cold?

January 16th, 2021 · No Comments · Football, Los Angeles Rams, Rams

I wish I had the time and energy to look this up, or call some agency that would look it up for me, and pay them to do it, but … … I don’t and I don’t. So, I will own up to cherry-picking these NFL stats from The Athletic pertaining to the Rams playoff […]

L.A. Still Alive in Tri-Championship Chase

January 12th, 2021 · No Comments · Baseball, Basketball, Dodgers, Football, Los Angeles, Los Angeles Rams, NBA, NFL, Rams

The Lakers, kingpins of the National Basketball Association. The Dodgers, top of the heap in Major League baseball. The Rams, still in competition for the Super Bowl. Thus, it is possible, if still improbable, that the champs of the three most popular American professional sports leagues could all be found in Los Angeles.

More Wolford, Please

January 5th, 2021 · No Comments · Football, NFL, Rams

I might have suggested the Los Angeles Rams would take a page from the “psyching ourselves up” playbook and lecture fans and the media about “how nobody believes in us,” ahead of their game against Arizona on Sunday. But we couldn’t go there because Rams fans, perhaps more enthusiastic than informed, apparently helped bet a […]

Rams Over Shock Loss to Jets?

December 26th, 2020 · No Comments · Football, NFL, Rams

Has Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay gotten over that 23-20 home defeat inflicted last week by the previously winless New York Jets? I haven’t. Last Sunday, kickoff was a bit after 1 p.m. The Rams, however, didn’t show up until about 2, when a field goal got them to 13-3. (That score again!) What […]

McVay, Rams Confront ‘Belichick Test’

December 10th, 2020 · No Comments · Los Angeles Rams, NFL, Rams

How good are these Los Angeles Rams? Check back at about 8:30 (PST) tonight. By then, we should have the results of the Rams versus the New England Patriots in the NFL’s Thursday night game. This is a big game for both teams. The Rams are 8-4, atop the NFC West, and are pursuing a […]

Where Would Rams Be with Prescott at QB, Instead of Goff?

November 25th, 2020 · No Comments · Football, NFL, Rams

Why aren’t more people talking about this? Is it just me? “Stuck” over here in France, getting a limited amount of NFL in my TV diet? The Los Angeles Rams moved heaven and earth (and six high draft picks, to Tennessee) so that they could make Cal quarterback Jared Goff the first pick of the […]

Up All Night with ‘My’ Teams

October 9th, 2020 · No Comments · Baseball, Basketball, Dodgers, Football, France, Lakers, Los Angeles Rams, NBA, NFL, Rams, Sports, Sports Journalism

I need the Lakers to close out the NBA Finals tonight. Because I have money on them? Because I have become a fan of LeBron James? Because I can’t stand to see them lose? Nope. I need them to win so I can get a little sleep. A downside for an American living in France? […]

Championships at Stake This Month for L.A.’s Two Favorite Teams

October 1st, 2020 · No Comments · Baseball, Chargers, Clippers, Dodgers, Kobe, Lakers, NBA, NFL, Rams

Well, here we are. A city, a metropolitan center that had to be content (in terms of the Big Four professional sports leagues) with a couple of Stanley Cup championships over the previous decade. Now, L.A. finds out if its favorite two clubs can win titles in the same month. Los Angeles is overrun by […]

Back in the Day: Joe Namath, Rams, Mystery Woman,Wrong Room

December 26th, 2019 · No Comments · Back in the Day, Football, NFL, Rams, Sports Journalism

Joe Namath has a new biography out, and in it the former New York Jets hero and leader of the great upset victory in Super Bowl III relates his spending Christmas alone, in December of 1979. The episode is outlined in this excerpt from “All the Way: My Life in Four Quarters.” And nearly any […]
