Rams Battle Browns Saturday

The Rams continue to prep for Saturday's preseason game against the Browns in Cleveland. Browns head coach Mike Pettine announced veteran Brian Hoyer will be his starting quarterback to open the regular season, getting the nod over rookie Johnny Manziel.

Rams offensive tackle Roger Saffold is hoping to see the field this weekend against the Browns. He's been recovering from a stinger in his left shoulder and has yet to appear in a preseason game. Saffold says he's good to go, but the coaching staff is being cautious with his health.

The Rams are the NFL's least valuable franchise. In its annual list, Forbes rates the Rams' worth at 930-million-dollars, the lowest of any NFL franchise. The Dallas Cowboys are number-one at 3.2-billion, followed by the Patriots at 2.6-billion. The average NFL team is worth 1.43-billion.

On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
