Let's take a look at what has happened around the NFC West in this week's Roundup.
St. Louis Rams:
The Rams beat the Chiefs 14-10 last night. Mike Sando from ESPN put together a short list of three things he wanted to see from the Rams going into that game. Hit the link to find out what they were and if those expectations were met.
Sam Bradford is still lamenting over a throw he made last year that was intercepted. He consistently criticizes himself over it to this day, which is why this guy is going to be a great quarterback in this league.
Sando takes a look at the opponents for each NFC West team in week one of the regular season. While the Seahawks and 49ers will play each other, I decided to put this in the Rams section because they will arguably have the best opponent. When the Rams play the Eagles in week one, we will get a good look at how both teams might shape up for the rest of the season.
Jim Thomas from stltoday.com looks at all of the Rams players currently on the roster and breaks down whether or not they'll still be on the roster when they play the Eagles.
Is there a possibility of the Rams cutting one or both of their drafted rookie receiver? Jim Thomas says no.
Jim Harbaugh wants to get Colin Kaepernick some reps with the first team. Supposedly this is just in case of an injury or something of the sort to Alex Smith, but I am skeptical.
A little news on rookie quarterback Colin Kaepernick's fundamentals.
Top 200: 49ers, Seahawks lead the way - NFC West Blog - ESPN
A quick look at all of the players in the NFC West that made the Scouts Inc. Top 200 list. The San Francisco 49ers somehow had the most, with the Seahawks coming in at a close second.
The tight ends (as a group) remind me a lot of what Arizona now has. They have guys that can do a little bit of everything.
Josh Pinknard will get the start for the Seahawks tonight since Kam Chancellor is injured, but it is yet to be seen if Pinknard will even make the roster. He is currently in a battle for a spot to play with the Seahawks.
I wanted to add this because it is probably one of the best ideas I have ever heard of. Michael Robinson, fullback for the Seattle Seahawks, is attempting to become the first player ever to report the games he plays in. Confused? Click the link.
