    Reconciling Media Roster Reviews with the Rams' Divisional Success

    We all know that the Rams posted an impressive 4-1-1 record in the NFC West last year.

    In contrast to this record, if you read most roster reviews or position-by-position analyses involving the Rams, they are rated as having a roster that is comparable to Arizona's and significantly inferior to San Francisco's and Seattle's.

    So, this begs the question...

    How did the Rams win those games?

    Which answer do you think will prove to be correct?

    Re: Reconciling Media Roster Reviews with the Rams' Divisional Success

    I went with the 2nd option. We do have unrecognised inidividual talent, but not proven talent in the shape of seattle or san fran. We won those games last year with a bit of luck (esp the san fran games) and it was a team effort. there were no star performers as far as i can remember, except i think amendola had 10 catches in one of the san fran games. They worked hard as a team and nulified the oppenents best players. This year hopefully we will see individual talent step up like Austin, whichever RB gets the nod etc, along with the strong team effort should result in more individual plays thus more points thus more games won.

    We were t h i s close to winning two more games last year. Given the talent potential for 2013, "This will change" ... and for the better I believe. I thus voted option 1.

    I think option 1 and 2 apply here. The lack of National TV telecasts leaves our team as a virtual cast of unknowns. Win more games this season vs last season and we will get the exposure we deserve. I'd also like to say it isn't a bad thing being a sleeping Giant.
