Rams Place DE Robert Quinn and RB Benny Cunningham on Injured Reserve

Robert Quinn

The Los Angeles Rams today made a couple roster moves with some veteran players, putting placed defensive end Robert Quinn and backup running back Benny Cunningham on injured reserve.

The official reason for putting Quinn on IR is a concussion that has kept him out the past two games but 2016 in general has been an injury-plagued, disappointing season for the star pass rusher.

Quinn also underwent back surgery during the offseason and was briefly hospitalized with a mystery illness last month. Although he is still only 26 years old an signed to a mega-contract through 2019, Quinn has been a disappointment the past two seasons with only nine sacks in 17 games played.

Cunningham, normally the Rams’ third-down back and kick returner, went down with a neck injury in Week 13. He has had only 21 carries and 37 touches for the worst offense in the NFL in 2016 and will be a free agent at the end of the season. As with virtually every other area of the team outside their defensive front four, the Rams will need to upgrade the talent level of their running backs corps this offseason.

It’s been a season of disaster with the Rams already with Jeff Fisher getting fired already this week and the team’s move to Los Angeles not going as smoothly as planned.

It sounds more and more like with a new coaching staff there’s going to be a complete overhaul of the team as well as the roster. We shall see if it puts this team in a position to compete in 2017.

What if the Rams Logo Was Made in the Likeness of President Elect Donald Trump?

Donald Trump

Like it or not, next month Donald Trump will be the new President of the United States, and one thing that can’t be denied is it’s going to be an interesting four years in our country.

There’s been plenty of fun poked at the President elect, and one site – Uproxx, has taken it upon themselves to design every NFL logo in the make of our President elect.

Check out what they think the logo of the Rams will look like made in the likeness of Trump!

Rams Slide Continues; Fall in New England to Patriots 26-10

at Gillette Stadium on December 4, 2016 in Foxboro, Massachusetts.

Tom Brady now stands alone when it comes to career wins by an NFL quarterback.

Brady became the league’s leader in victories among QBs, earning his 201st by throwing for 269 yards and a touchdown to lead the New England Patriots past the struggling Los Angeles Rams 26-10 on Sunday.

Brady, who was 33 of 46, had tied Peyton Manning last week in a win over the New York Jets.

“It’s always been about winning, and I’ve been very fortunate to be on a lot of great teams,” Brady said of reaching the milestone. “I’m just really grateful.”

His lone touchdown pass came on a 14-yard pass to Chris Hogan in the first quarter. LeGarrette Blount scored the game’s first touchdown, rumbling for a 43-yard, ankle-breaking score in the first quarter while spinning around safety Maurice Alexander in the process. He finished with 88 yards on 18 carries.

Jeff Fisher Says He’s Not Worried About the Rams 4-7 Record

Jeff Fisher

Rams coach Jeff Fisher said he is “not concerned” about his job even though so much negativity has surrounded him during the team’s 4-7 season, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports.

On Sunday, there was the Rams’ 49-21 blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints, their sixth defeat in a span of seven games. On Monday and Tuesday, there was a public spat with Rams legend Eric Dickerson that went viral, with Dickerson vowing to never attend games so long as Fisher is the team’s coach. On Wednesday, Fisher was ridiculed by New England Patriots reporters who came away thinking he could not name the team’s running backs on a conference call.

Meanwhile, fans and pundits everywhere continue to clamor for his firing and continue to reference his infamous comments in an episode of HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” in which he vowed to not put up with “7-9 bulls—.”

“We opened our world to ‘Hard Knocks,'” Fisher said when asked about those comments after Wednesday’s practice. “Those comments came after a couple of issues that we had. I’ve never been satisfied with 7-9 or 8-8. I’ve had a number of winning seasons. I’m not concerned. I don’t look over my shoulder, like I’ve said over and over again. I’m not concerned about my job. I have a great relationship with [Rams owner Stan Kroenke]. He understands the difficulties that were placed on this organization as far as the move is concerned. And I’m moving forward optimistically with this team.”

A deal might not officially be in place, but the expectation remains that Fisher will be back next season, along with general manager Les Snead, who also is in the final year of his contract.

Fisher’s Rams have finished no better than 7-8-1 since he arrived in 2012, though the organization lost 65 of 80 games in the five seasons leading up to that. In 14 of his 20 full seasons as an NFL head coach, Fisher’s teams have failed to sport a winning record. He now has 163 career losses, two away from tying Dan Reeves for the NFL record with five games remaining this season.

But the Rams’ higher-ups have given him the benefit of the doubt, privately throughout the year and publicly recently.

“Everybody will want to judge Jeff through the prism of just the record, but that’s totally unfair when you look at the set of circumstances he was handed this year,” Rams COO Kevin Demoff told NFL.com. “It was different than any team in the NFL. … We moved halfway across the country, then had [organized team activities] in Oxnard. Training camp was in Irvine, now we’re in Thousand Oaks. We moved coaches and players and families. To provide leadership and consistency, he’s done a model job.”

Rams Jump Out to Early Lead; Then Fall Flat in 49-21 Loss to Saints

Los Angeles Rams v New Orleans Saints

Drew Brees passed for 310 yards and four touchdowns, Mark Ingram scored twice, and the New Orleans Saints defeated the Los Angeles Rams, 49-21 on Sunday.

Playing 10 days after being knocked unconscious in a Thursday night loss at Carolina, Ingram rushed for 146 yards on 14 carries, including a 61-yard scamper and a 10-yard touchdown on a fourth-and-1 play. He also scored on a 21-yard screen to the right side of the field, which was wide open as the Rams tried to pressure Brees.

Two of Brees’ scoring strikes went to Michael Thomas, whose touchdowns of 6 and 21 yards were part of a nine-catch, 108-yard performance. Brees’ other touchdowns went to Ingram and Brandon Coleman from 6 yards out.

Saints coach Sean Payton also victimized his former defensive coordinator, Gregg Williams, with some razzle-dazzle that produced a 50-yard touchdown pass from receiver Willie Snead to running back Tim Hightower.

Rams Cut Ties with CB Troy Hill Three Days After Arrested for Suspicion of DUI

Troy Hill

Tuesday the Rams waived cornerback Troy Hill as part of a series of roster moves, three days after Hill was arrested on suspicion of DUI, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports.

The Rams also waived fellow cornerback Dwayne Gratz and placed rookie linebacker Josh Forrest on injured reserve after Forrest suffered a knee injury on Sunday that will put him out four to six weeks. Cornerback Michael Jordan and linebacker Nic Grigsby were promoted from the practice squad to take their place on the active roster.

Hill’s Mercedes swerved over multiple lanes on an L.A. freeway and crashed into the back of a semi-truck at around 8 a.m. PT on Saturday, according to multiple reports. Hill was then given a field sobriety test and arrested on the spot, booked in Van Nuys, California, and deactivated by the Rams for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins.
