    Rams have division-title talent

    Does anyone have Espn "insider"? If so, this looks like a good article. Maybe someone can share with us..

    http://insider.espn.go.com/espn/blog/index?name=nfl_nfc




    If the level of play so far this preseason is any indication, the St. Louis Rams have the talent to win the NFC West. in St. Louis Rams training camp are any indication of possible success this season, the Rams have the talent to win the NFC West.

    Running back Steven Jackson is obviously a big part of the offensive game plan and he will be on the field at the same time with rookie back Brian Leonard in both passing and running situations, giving the coaching staff the ability to use multiple formations in order to create mismatches out of the backfield or split out wide in the formation. Leonard played fullback at Rutgers and can also be used a lead blocker for Jackson on running plays.

    With Marc Bulger under center and wide receivers Torry Holt, Isaac Bruce and Drew Bennett on the outside, the skill positions are as explosive as ever in St. Louis, The offensive line is healthier overall as well, and the the fight is heated at center between 14-year veteran Andy McCollum and fifth-year man Brett Romberg, with each playing well enough to put pressure on the other.

    On the other side of the ball, defensive coordinator Jim Haslett is in his second year with the team and will instill some consistency in his unit. His blitz schemes and disguised coverages have made his defenses successful in the past and this year should be no exception. The defensive line can be the strength of the unit with La'Roi Glover and rookie Adam Carriker providing stoutness on the inside to complement the speed of Leonard Little and James Hall on the edge. The overall depth of the defense is a concern, but if they can stay healthy the postseason becomes much more possible.

    The addition of return specialist Dante' Hall is the first major acquisition the Rams have made in a long time to boost the special teams, and Hall still has the explosive burst to be a home run threat as a returner. His excellent change of direction and vision puts coverage units on their heels and gives Hall the edge to make a cut and take it all the way.

    With so many talented players on both sides of the ball and teams in Arizona, Seattle, and San Francisco that look to be less than dominant, now is the time for the Rams to capitalize and take home the division crown.

    right on the money, imo. We have the horses to really get it done and the lack of depth to take us down with alot of injurys. My cash is on the former!!

    Now is the time, but you have to ask, how large is the window. This is a team that's built to win NOW. Or at least, within the next two or so years, before evryone gets too old and retires
