    The Injury Situation

    The Rams coaching staff must seriously examine both the off-season and in-season conditioning programs as well as training camp and pre-season strategies. The weekly injury report for this team would be laughable, were it not such a serious issue. There is NO WAY that this many guys should be on the shelf- we have to go sign some guy off the scrap heap just to get a healthy running back for the Jets game. Ridiculous. It's been this way for a year and a half now.

    I understand every team has injuries. Broken bones and other serious injuries due to the nature of the game of football are expected. However, these muscle strains and soft tissue injuries need to be minimized. A guy runs two plays and pulls his hamstring- it's mind-boggling.

    They can start by drafting guys with a good collegiate track record of durability.

    Yoga. Some tough guys will laugh but if you've ever tried it, you'll quickly understand the huge benefits for athletes whose bodies are twisted and violently slammed around.
    A quick Google search reveals that many successful teams like the Giants and Titans have already integrated yoga into their conditioning programs.

    SJAX is our biggest problem. Fact is, we depend on him to lead and be the center of our offense. With him out.. which happens far too often we end up getting screwed with no running game. I think we should make it a priority to draft a good RB who can not only back up jackson but actually compete for carries to push Jax to train/stretch, whatever he needs to do, better. Because everytime he goes down it seems we are right behind him.
