Rams Come Up Short In Finale, Finish 7-9

For the second straight year, the Rams traveled to Seattle in the final regular season game with a chance to notch the team’s first eight-win season since 2006. Also for the second straight year, the Rams came up short offensively, falling 27-9 to the Seahawks on Sunday. Despite a defensive performance that held the Seahawks to just six offensive points in the first half, the Rams found tough sledding offensively, as they finished the day with 158 total yards. The Rams were held to just 13 yards rushing, including 15 yards on 15 carries from RB Zac Stacy, who fell short in his bid to become just the third Rams rookie to rush for 1,000 yards, finishing with 973. After taking a 13-0 deficit into the half, the Rams registered their first scoring drive on their second offensive possession of the second half, on a 36-yard field goal by K Greg Zuerlein. They capped their scoring on their final offensive possession, with a 2-yard touchdown reception by TE Jared Cook. The Rams finished at 7-9, marking the first time the team has secured consecutive seasons of seven or more victories since 2003-2004. Despite falling short of the .500 plateau, Fisher remained encouraged by the progress of much of the team’s roster, which entered the season as the youngest in the league, a trajectory that bodes entering the 2014 season.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

It came as a shock to a lot of people to find out that the contract for the Union license office, which has been operated by the Union Chamber of Commerce since the 1970's, was being turned over to a for-profit company based out of Jefferson City.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
