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."

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
