Why The Los Angeles Rams Are Doomed For Another Mediocre Season
Huffington Post - over 1 year
It's been a very long time since Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner led the St. Louis Rams, then dubbed as the "Greatest Show On Turf" to a pair of Super Bowl titles -- 14 years to be exact. Yes, back then the Rams had not only Warner, but running back Marshall Faulk and wide receivers Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt racking up the yards, making spectacular plays and most importantly, winning. Fast-forward to the present day and it seems like it's been forever since the franchise was competitive. Yet at the same time, running back Todd Gurley and rookie quarterback Jared Goff provide a glimmer of hope for an optimistic future. That said, even a move from St. Louis to Los Angeles won't change the fact that the team is doomed for another subpar season. Let's explore the reasons why. History Is Not On The Rams Side The last six teams to relocate going back to the Baltimore Colts back in 1984 have failed to get through their first regular season in their new city with a winning recor...

A closer look at where QBs in NFL conference championship games come from
Houston Chronicle - about 2 years
!function(D,id,s){ if(D.getElementById(id))return; s=D.createElement('script');s.id=id; s.src='//pollware-cdn.sodahead.com/pollware/pollware_890.js'; D.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(s); }(document,'sh-pollware-loader'); Once again, arguably the greatest weekend of the NFL season – Championship Sunday – comes without the Texans participating. Of course, it could be argued that the Texans have only twice, in 2011 and 2012, had teams that were good enough to play for conference championships. Arguably the biggest reason this year’s Texans aren’t playing for a berth in the Super Bowl is the Grand Canyon-esque hole they have at quarterback, one that’s loomed over the franchise like the Sword of Damocles for much of its existence. That was reinforced by Brian Hoyer’s historically bad performance in the recent playoff loss to the Chiefs. That got us to thinking, where do quarterbacks in conference championship games come from. So we looked at the quarterbacks who’v...

Seahawks’ Baldwin takes ‘pedestrian’ route to new heights
Houston Chronicle - about 4 years
By Kevin Duffy The News-Times NEWARK, N.J. — Before the cameras went on, Doug Baldwin flipped his off. It’s a little silver handheld device that Baldwin has been carrying all week. He normally uses it to film his question-and-answer YouTube segment, “The Fresh Files,” quite popular among Seattle fans. At Tuesday’s Super Bowl media day, he quickly scanned the crowd with the camera, capturing the grandeur and pure absurdity of it all, before tapping the tiny screen shut. “I’m going to try and document as much as I can and just enjoy the moment,” Baldwin said. “I do (the editing) myself, so I’m probably going to put together something for my YouTube channel. But more so, this is personal for me to look back when I’m older so I can remember this moment.” Forever motivated It always seems personal for the 5-10, 189-pound Baldwin, undrafted out of Stanford, where he was roommates for one year with Richard Sherman. Unquestionably one of the game’s top corners, Sherman was underval...

Yet people still underestimate him, says Kurt Warner. SANTA CLARA, Calif. — In the last five years, receiver Anquan Boldin has gotten to the Super Bowl with the Arizona Cardinals, won one with the Baltimore Ravens, and, as a member of the San Francisco 49ers this season, is one victory away from a third visit to the NFL's biggest stage.

Denver Broncos Rout Philadelphia Eagles 52-20 As Peyton Manning Continues Historic Start (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - over 4 years
DENVER — Forget fast-break football. This was steel-cold efficiency. Peyton Manning made quick work of the Philadelphia Eagles in a warp-speed game between the NFL's top two offenses, both of which like to snap the ball quickly. The Denver Broncos scored more points than they ever had in their 54-year history on Sunday, blowing out the Eagles 52-20 behind Manning's four touchdown throws and two special teams scores. "Might have to give old Thunder an IV after this one," Manning said of the white Arabian gelding who trots around the Sports Authority Field following touchdowns. If there's any IV bags left, that is. With two TD passes each to Demaryius Thomas and Wes Welker, Manning completed all but a half dozen of his 34 throws for 327 yards. He didn't even step on the field in the fourth quarter and cooled his cleats on the sideline for a 12-minute stretch in the first half, no less. Just another day in the life of Manning, whose 16 TD passes are the most in the first ...
