Rams news (like you care)

Readers of my old blog may recall I'm a die-hard St. Louis Rams fan. Two interesting tidbits I came across about the team today. One, the NFL Network's lead analyst, Rich Eisen, picks them to win the NFC West. Now that's not really going out on a limb because that division blows. Still, it gets 'em into the playoffs (which is like being a San Diego Padres fan and bragging about winning their division -- I know!).

Second, I saw over at La Shawn Barber's that former promising running back Lawrence Phillips was arrested in, ironically, Los Angeles (from where the Rams moved in 1995) after "allegedly running his car into three teenagers who argued with him during a pickup football game." Oh, he also was wanted for roughing up his girlfriend! Nice.

Phillips was a mess from the get-go with the Rams, so much so that even coach Dick Vermeil -- who can work with anybody -- ended up letting him go. Phillips was later picked up by the Miami Dolphins, but that went nowhere fast.
