Around the NFC West: Rams hand it over

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch says St. Louis watched its former quarterback and former team celebrate a division title. Torry Holt says he's happy for Kurt Warner.

Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch says the Cardinals' title-clinching victory over the Rams was a surreal experience for someone from St. Louis.

Jeff Gordon of stltoday.com says the Rams handed a division title to the Cardinals. Gordon: "Losing to the Cardinals was nothing new. Our Town's old team, still owned by William V. (For Victory) Bidwill, spanked the Rams, 34-13, earlier this season at The Ed."

Bill Coats of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch says Steven Jackson took responsibility for his fumbles, acknowledging that he was trying to get something going against a tough run defense.

Also from Coats: A report card featuring a C-plus grade for Marc Bulger and a B-minus grade for the Rams' coaching staff.

Steve Korte of Ramblings offers a report card featuring a B-minus grade for the Rams' linebackers.

3k of Turf Show Times gives the Rams' offensive line an A-minus grade even though the running game never got going.
