Football is back!

Wow after 120 something days we finally have football back. The Rams made a somewhat big improvement by signing safety, Quintin Mikell formerly of the Eagles. Known for his run stuffing ability he also had 15 pass breakups as the Eagles leading tackler.

It still suprises me, if no one else, of how this team is slowly becoming an NFC East looking team. I know Spags has a history from NYG, and Philly but it still is weird to me, with the GSOT not that far removed from memory. If,  as the pundits project that the Rams add DT Barry Cofield, and former Ram Scott Shanle, we will be so far removed from the speed dominated cover 2 out heads will spin.

Anyway football is back so the world seems much more normal.

Geaux Rams!

Lockout ending?

Well if we are to believe most media outlets, July 21st the NFL will have their annual owners' meeting and it is speculated that a deal will be up for a vote to end the lockout. If that holds true the league year will be off with a flash.

 Much needs to be done, including rookie free agent signings, free agency, and rookie contracts. All that and the Rams will be lucky to squeeze in 14 days of practice before heading to Canton to play the Bears.

I am so ready for some football!
