Rams Prepare For Seahawks Monday Night

The Rams are prepping for the national spotlight in Week Eight. They play the NFC West rival Seahawks on "Monday Night Football" at the Edward Jones Dome. The Rams will look to bounce back from Sunday's 30-15 loss at Carolina that has them back under .500 at 3-and-4. Seattle leads the division at 6-and-1. These teams split their two meetings last season.

The Rams expressed at least mild interest in signing former NFL star quarterback Brett Favre, according to multiple reports. The Rams wouldn't comment on the reports. They did work out veteran Tyler Thigpen and signed two other quarterbacks earlier in the week in trying to add depth behind new starter Kellen Clemens.

Thomas Jefferson, proponent of the Bill of Rights, could never have conceived just how many venues there are today for First-Amendment protected speech.

What he also could not have conceived is how this phenomenon of pervasive media has actually stymied, not enhanced, the free speech expression of presidential candidates.
