How do you start your work day? If you’re a social media addict like me the first thing I do when my eyes open is lean over for my iPhone and check Twitter.
Seems like some Rams rookie prepare for their work day in a similar fashion. They reach for their smart phones and tweet their morning salutations to Twitterverse.
Rams rookie WR Chris Givens always starts his day with a simple “#GodFirst.”
But today, not too long after his signature greeting he tweeted this reply to his fellow rookie but defensive teammate CB Janoris Jenkins.
As iron sharpens iron so shall Givens and Jenkins. They will only get better as they challenge and battle each other.
Now onto Rams news and notes.
Rams Back At It
-Fisher said Monday he hoped to get WR Brandon Gibson, S Darian Stewart and CB Bradley Fletcher back this week. It didn’t happen Tuesday as all sat out once again.

- C Scott Wells, WR Danario Alexander and DT Trevor Laws also continue to sit out.
- Some guests in the host today with outstanding caches to talk to the players and observe practice. Big Game Torry Holt was in the house and spent some times in a meeting with receivers. Aeneas Williams did the same with the defensive backs. … Read more at STLouisRams.com >>>>

101ESPN’s Tony Sofli interviews Rams’ Paul Boudreau or “Boo,” about his offensive line players.
A quick three things I took from this interview. 1) Jason Smith is still having to work on technique. 2) I like the fact the players (Ojinnaka, Watkins, Dahl, Richardson, etc.) will be somewhat interchangeable depending on situations and packages. 3) Scott Wells return will not be soon enough. I would love to see him play by the last game of the preseason which is what they are shooting for.
Rams Chat With Jim Thomas
Here is one question I saw quite a bit after Chad Johnson was released from the Dolphins. My answer: Hella no.
Jim Thomas doesn’t really reply back on Twitter so this chat is a great way to ask him questions. It’s nice synopsis of FAQ’s by Rams fans – What’s up with Isaiah Pead, how is the WR competition looking, and more specifically does Danario Alexander have a chance to make the team. JT gives his honest answers.
