    rams need to stay healthy this year

    im noticing that the rams seem to have a problem with their players stayin healthy. it seems every year weve got a ton of player on the ir. is it that the player arent conditioning well enough or what. the last time the rams were really healthy was 2006. in that year only 6 players were on ir.since then its been a wreck every week someone goes down with a bad injury. someone tell me what could it be!

    Re: rams need to stay healthy this year

    I don't know that there's one answer. I think it's a combination of things. The turf has come under scrutiny. Conditioning could be a cause of some of the preventable (muscle) injuries. Simple bad luck and circumstances have played a role. Guys with a poor track record of not being healthy. And not for nothing, the Rams fired their long time trainer a couple of months ago- a move met with skepticism by numerous fans who felt he was simply the fall guy for the team's injury issues.

    I think most importantly, our lack of depth and overall talent have made each injury we've suffered more glaring. Other teams have major injury problems and lose skill players, but they overcome them and have guys step up. We haven't been able to.

    Depth. That has been the one thing that has killed us in recent years . these guys who make the Pro's are good and should be able to fill in the roll when prompted , but our depth has been so bad ,some guys are playing in a totolly new spot(O-Line mainly)and it shows.

    I nominate the poster of this thread the weekly "Captain Obvious Award" for the title...there are a few deserving, but this one still gets my nomination.

    You just noticed we had problems with injuries?

    But seriously, I think NJ hit the nail on the head here. Because the Rams' overall depth has been way below average, any injury becomes incredibly magnified. Regardless, there have been a lot of injuries and there's been several articles and reports pertaining to Devaney and Spags "looking into it."

    Im hoping we have better luck in that department this year, and we have signed some depth to help, and the new turf, and new trainer, so this is one area Im more optimistic about going into the new season.

    the FO has just about done everything possible to address this. Adding depth through a disgusting FA, fixing the turf, hiring a new athletic trainer. Not much more they can do besides keep adding depth and hope for the best. Our injuries seem to consist of a lot of knees and just plain bad luck (getting rolled on by multiple 300 pounders when your barely 200, lanky receiver. ie. Robinson..)
