Week 15 – Arizona at St Louis: “That’s not a [defense]… THIS is a [defense].”

Steve Baker returns to the Pigskin Almanac with a shrewd analysis (with bonus socio/political commentary) of the Arizona Cardinals hard-fought win over the St. Louis Rams.

About Steve Baker

Steve Baker cashed in his horses for choppers and went tear-assing around ‘Nam, looking for the shit. He’s been known to chopper in t-bones and beer and turn the L-Z into a beach party. Steve’s the defending ‘Most Pessimistic Dallas Fan’ champion and is in the midst of a life-long campaign to one day buy the Cowboys off Jerry Jones and end the madness. He’s also chief button-pusher for the Footy Almanac Podcast, so you can blame him.

Week 13 – Oakland @ St. Louis: Normal service has resumed in Oakland

Greg McLeod gets right to the point: there isn’t much to say about Oakland’s 52-0 loss to St. Louis other than some very misleading statistics.

About

Melbourne, Australia based NFL fan (real and fantasy). First memory of the NFL is Super Bowl XVI (49ers v Bengals) in 1982. For reasons that cannot be recalled now, commenced following the Oakland Raiders at that time. Has seen two American football games live: December 1985 UTEP v Wyoming at Waverley Park and 2013 at Melbourne University.

Week 10 – St. Louis @ Arizona: Take off your rainbow shades

Ed Wyatt says the fairytale continues in Arizona, but an injury to quarterback Cardinals’ Carson Palmer means it might not be a case of “happily ever after.”

About Ed Wyatt

Ed Wyatt grew up in Halfway, Maryland, following the Baltimore Colts like his football coach father. When he lost his Bert Jones #7 jersey at the Lincolnshire Elementary School playground, he should have taken it as an omen, since the Colts left Baltimore for Indianapolis. Ed has managed to avoid full time work by talking on the radio, smiling on the television and tapping on the keyboard of his computer. He won a number of local Emmy awards with the Seattle-based comedy show Almost Live! and hosted the Super Bowl live on Australian television for nine years. He is a graduate of Stanford University.

Week 9 – St. Louis @ San Francisco: A controversial ending

San Francisco fan Josh Slocum knew that his 49ers were going to beat the St. Louis Rams. Except they didn’t and he’s not happy about it.

About Josh Slocum

Born into the red and white of the South Melbourne Swans, I remember being amazed at age 7 to see a team with our colours that actually won something when the 1984 49ers won the Superbowl. I’ve been following the red, white and gold ever since. Of recent times my frustrations at not winning a Superbowl since 1994 can be heard occasionally on the aussieguysnfl podcast.

Week 7 – Seattle @ St. Louis: Black Hole Sunday

Ed Wyatt says a bad week for Seattle Seahawk fans began with a controversial personnel move and ended with a second consecutive loss, this time to St. Louis.

Week 6 – San Francisco @ St. Louis: Defense is the best offense
