#20: An Ode to the Jackrabbit
October 20, 2016•17 min
When cornerback Janoris Jenkins signed a 5-year, $62.5 million contract with the New York Giants this past March, he joined a long list of stars to leave the Rams in the middle of their primes and join other teams, including Dick “Night Train” Lane, Jack “Hacksaw” Reynolds, and Jerome Bettis. Joshua Neuman previews Sunday’s game against the Giants at Twickenham Stadium in London and reflects on Jenkins’ four years with the Rams in St. Louis and imagines what might’ve been for the Jackrabbit in Los Angeles. Plus, the Rams get mauled by the Lions, Jeff Fisher continues to invoke the ire of fans, and the season’s biggest surprise—Kenny Britt and Brian Quick somehow emerge as a formidable WR duo.
