Rams Rank #13 in B/R's Pre-Season Rankings
Not that it means much because it's a ranking and its B/R, but here it is:
13. St. Louis Rams
The Good News
We should all take a moment and congratulate Les Snead and Jeff Fisher on a great start to rebuilding the St. Louis Rams. Now, on to Step 2 for this reloading group.
The makeover completed last offseason got some finishing touches this year when the team added left tackle Jake Long to protect quarterback Sam Bradford, traded up to draft wide receiver/offensive weapon Tavon Austin and stole tight end/offensive weapon Jared Cook from the Tennessee Titans in free agency.
That's a lot of firepower on offense that this team didn't have before.
On defense, it will be more of the same but a little more seasoned. Michael Brockers, Robert Quinn and Janoris Jenkins will be one year smarter—and that should scare fans of opposing teams. Fisher's defensive schemes will also be better with Tim Walton running the squad this year.
The Bad News
What could possibly go wrong for the Rams?
Well, they do play in the exceptionally tough NFC West, so getting to 10 wins might be impossible at the moment. Also, former No. 1 overall pick Bradford hasn't exactly set the league on fire.
There are legitimate reasons—or call them "excuses"—for Bradford's struggles, but those will all be swept out the door this year. He has a premier left tackle. He has targets at receiver and tight end. He has a good defense supporting him.
It's now or never for Bradford in St. Louis.
