    Rams with only $3 million in cap room per FOX Sports

    FOX Sports on MSN - NFL - Seahawks should stay on top in NFC West

    St. Louis (3-13)
    Looking back: Until mid-season, St. Louis was a strong candidate to land the 2008 draft's first pick. Instead, they're picking No. 2. Injuries to quarterback Marc Bulger, running back Stephen Jackson and across the offensive line sank the Rams early.

    Biggest need area: Offensive line. Injuries forced the Rams to field 13 different starters, making things hazardous for Rams quarterbacks. The most significant loss was left tackle Orlando Pace, who has missed 23 games the past two seasons with injuries. Pace will be 33 in November and there is no guarantee he can still play at an elite level, which is why St. Louis may select a tackle early in the draft (although choosing Michigan's Jake Long or Boise State's Ryan Clady with the No. 2 pick is a reach).

    Player/coach to watch: Scott Linehan. He may face the longest odds of any coach to return in 2009. Struggling in his adjustment from being a coordinator, Linehan had several well-publicized sideline blowups with star players like Jackson and wide receiver Torry Holt.

    Projected cap space: $3 million. Rams management is in a state of transition. Team majority owner Georgia Frontiere died last month and left her 60 percent stake in the franchise to her two children. St. Louis also has a new personnel chief in Billy Devaney, who was assistant general manager in Atlanta. The Rams will gain some cap relief after releasing wide receiver Isaac Bruce.

    2008 outlook: Fair. The Rams will be improved if they can avoid a repeat of last year's injury problems, but anything short of a playoff appearance may not be enough to save Linehan's job. St. Louis has to hope its offensive players have a quick learning curve under new coordinator Al Saunders, who struggled implementing his sizable playbook the past two seasons in Washington. The defense should be better in a second season under coordinator Jim Haslett.

    Wrong! Loss of the O-line was what did us in.

    I agree, I think what did us in was no offense line.

    That's before we make cuts and re-do deals (hopefully Bruce's deal will be redone SOON).

    Agreed, when Pace went down, the whole offense started collapsing.

    Keenum's right. Look for us to make some readjustments and some cuts before we get too deep into free agency. If we're desparate for room, it could be goodbye to some of our veterans like Leonard Little and, as much as I hate to say it, Isaac Bruce, too.

    You can acredit this to Drew Bennett, Orlando Pace and Marc Bulger's huge salaries.

    Like that would fix anything... totally idiotic.

    Ike should restructure but he still plays at a high level, you can't let the face of the Rams go. He is still a top receiver. Bulger is great, but $65 mil was a little too much, and we overpaid Bennett and Pace. Don't get me wrong, I still have a lot of faith in Bulger and Bennett, but not how we have handled money. I personally think at this point in his career, we should deal Leonard Little.
