Former Rams greats, such as Kurt Warner and Isaac Bruce, prove that it's alright to play the game with class. Leaving the ego at home is not always a bad thing.
However, after nearly 10 years of boring football in St. Louis, the Rams need to dump the boy scouts and regain their edge. It's perfectly fine to have a handful of high-class characters, but in the end, football is a vicious, hard-nosed game and requires players who fit that bill.
Kenny Britt and Tre Mason are certainly not the nastiest players to ever strap on the pads, but both add a certain level of swagger that the offense desperately needs.
Mason, who has yet to play an NFL game, has already voiced his desire to win the starting job over incumbent Zac Stacy, and has even bragged about his potential to produce, stating "10 carries, all I need. 10 for 100 yards."
As for Britt, he's already running his mouth and getting into scuffles at practice, according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. It's behavior that is simply...fantastic.
In recent years, the Rams have owned an extremely soft and timid offense, so it's nice to finally see a player who's quite literally willing to punch the opponent in the face. This is a man's game, after all. If you want class, here's a PGA tour guide, as well as a schedule for Wimbledon. Have fun.
If, instead, you want to put the class on hold and finally witness real football in St. Louis, then simply tune into the Rams games on Sunday. This season, they're showing up to play, and they're not about to be polite about it.
