Rams lose composure in 30-15 loss to Panthers

Before the St. Louis Rams lost their starting quarterback and the game, they lost something that drives coaches crazy: Their poise. And that has Jeff Fisher concerned. The Rams were flagged five times for personal fouls — two of those on offensive lineman Harvey Dahl — and defensive end Chris Long was ejected for throwing a punch in a 30-15 loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. After the game Fisher lectured his players "Don't hurt the football team." But they did time and time again. "I was just frustrated. It was a frustrating situation," said Long, who was ejected in the third quarter. "We weren't playing to our potential at the time and there was a big scuffle in there. I just got caught and probably lost my cool the most. I apologize for that. That was wrong and I need to be more composed."

There are few things more inspiring in life than watching an octogenarain with two hip replacements swimming a 200 yard race, or guys in their late 70's playing some pretty vigorous 3 on 3 basketball. A generation of baby boomers is learning that, while they can't reverse age, they certainly can embrace life!
