St. Louis Rams
Safety Craig Dahl, now with the San Francisco 49ers, said the team was tipping plays last season. Dahl was part of a St. Louis Rams team that gave the 49ers all they could handle last season.
The St. Louis Rams signed Terrell Brown, a 6’10″ 403-pound undrafted free agent out of Ole Miss.
The 2013 NFL Draft will take place this week, so let’s take a look at which holes each team in the NFC West needs to fill to have a successful draft.
The NFC champion Niners signed safety Craig Dahl to a three-year contract Saturday. The 27-year-old Dahl spent the past four seasons with the St. Louis Rams.
St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher said the Baltimore Ravens’ Jimmy Smith should have been called for pass interference on Michael Crabtree during the San Francisco 49ers’ final offensive play of Super Bowl XLVII.
The first game last month ended in a 24-24 tie. The 49ers lost Sunday’s game 16-13 on a 54 yard field goal by Greg Zuerlein.
Although the two teams tied last time, nobody gave the Rams a shot in the rematch against the 49ers. San Francisco scored first and it looked like a rout, but St. Louis fought hard for four quarters, forced overtime, earned the upset, and won the season series against the NFC West-leading 49ers.
The 49ers are in St. Louis to play the Rams, one of the few teams that have played against this week’s starting San Francisco quarterback, Colin Kaepernick. “You know how people always say that they don’t have enough film on Kaepernick, that as they know what he does they’re going to know him better? Well this is one of the teams that is going to know him better,” John Madden told the KCBS morning crew.
The tie will be broken this time when NFC West rivals the San Francisco 49ers and St. Louis Rams meet Sunday. The 49ers will have a different quarterback than the Rams saw him the last time around. If the 49ers take care of business, they will win easily.
49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has named Colin Kaepernick the starting quarterback for Sunday’s game against the Rams, choosing him over former starter Alex Smith.
