Richie Incognito's Newest Blowup Reminds Us of His St. Louis Glory Days

Categories: Rams

Richie Incognito -- the oft-troubled starting guard released from the Rams in 2009 after two headbutting penalties and a sideline shouting match with the head coach -- has been suspended by the Miami Dolphins after accusations that he was bullying teammate Jonathan Martin.

In a statement, the Dolphins explained the reason for the suspension:

The Miami Dolphins have suspended Richie Incognito for conduct detrimental to the team. We believe in maintaining a culture of respect for one another and as a result we believe this decision is in the best interest of the organization at this time. As we noted earlier, we reached out to the NFL to conduct an objective and thorough review. We will continue to work with the league on this matter.

Rams Will Update Fans on World Series Scores During Monday's Game

Dave Herholtz
Assuming (cross your fingers) that there is a Game 5 of this year's World Series AFTER THURSDAY NIGHT'S CARDINALS VICTORY, fans of the St. Louis Rams won't have to miss out.

The Cardinals v. Red Sox showdown will be on TVs in the concourse, and the Edward Jones Dome plans to put the score on the scoreboard, according to the stadium's ticketing office. The score will be announced during breaks in the game, including between quarters.

As tickets to Busch Stadium cost up to $16,000 and are long sold out, the dome is the next best place to take in Missouri sports. Dozens of Rams tickets are available on StubHub for less than $10.

Plus, if you go to the Rams game, you'll get a rally flag. Bonus!

Ty Nsekhe, Former Rams Player, Disses Soldiers Because it "Doesn't Take Much Skill To Kill"

Categories: Blowback, Rams

Ty Nsekhe
Pro football player Ty Nsekhe was already having a rough summer before he put his cleats in his mouth via Twitter.

Cut from the Rams practice squad in late August, Nsekhe apparently used his newfound free time to jump into a Twitter exchange Monday that culminated in the offensive tackle spouting some seriously offensive sentiments about the military.

"It doesn't take much skill to kill someone," he wrote in response to a user who questioned why football players make more money than military service members.

Nsekhe deleted the tweet soon after, but other Twitter users screen-grabbed and re-tweeted it, stoking the Internet's white-hot flame of indignation.

Now, we bring you the social-media story of Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin who apparently got in trouble with his managers for some of the questionable folks he is following on his verified Twitter account.

The event is part of the team's "Cheer for a Cure" initiative, which has raised more than $50,000 for the fight against breast cancer. An RFT photographer was on the scene to document the...charitable effort. More photos below.

What do you do after the St. Louis Rams name you the team's "rookie of the year"? If you're cornerback Janoris Jenkins, you apparently head back to your home state of Florida and let your freak flag fly on the Internet.

Jenkins (or his clone) is all over Instagram these days, posting images under the username jackrabbit21 -- a nod to his days chasing rabbits as a kid in south Florida and his Rams' uniform number.

Take, for instance, the following photo posted on Instagram yesterday with the caption, "Strip club ready."

Brandon Gibson, The Underrated Ram

You know, it's a pretty common refrain around Ramsland: this offense just kind of, well, sucks. And I say kind of mostly to be nice. 

For the last few years, in fact, the Rams have struggled mightily to put together any kind of offensive attack that can consistently put points on the board, or even just move the ball up and down the field on a regular basis. The blame usually falls squarely on the shoulders of the receiving corps, with a healthy assist tossed the way of the offensive line. The Rams have what is still one of the better running backs in the league in Steven Jackson -- though he's no longer quite the elite force he once was -- but just can't consistently move the chains. The quarterback is a former number one overall who once upon a time looked like the second coming. It just has to be the receivers, right? 

Well, maybe it is. But I'll tell you, there's at least one receiver on this team doing a far, far better job than he gets credit for, and his name is Brandon Gibson

Three Keys to Victory Redux: Seahawks 20, Rams 13

Thumbnail image for st-louis-rams-bagheads.jpg
No, fellas, there's no reason to be ashamed. (But, still a funny picture, and one I couldn't resist busting out for the loss.)
I didn't expect this game to be close. I really didn't. In fact, I said as much yesterday when I gave out what I saw as the three keys to a Rams win. I thought Seattle was too hot, and too good, and the Rams were going to end a promising, rewarding campaign with an ugly afternoon in the Pacific Northwest. 

Instead, I was pleasantly surprised by the tenacity of the Ram defense, and the team as a whole. Actually, scratch that; I was more than pleasantly surprised. I was impressed. Very impressed, in fact. 

Unfortunately, impressive or not, the final score still tilted in favor of the Seahawks, and the Rams' 2012 season did, ultimately, end in a loss. Reviewing the keys after the break.
