    Leonard Little has 3 sacks this year, so I would take Chris long out the top 5 everyone else stays.

    On offense I would just put SJax.

      Defense

      1.O.J.
      2.Laurinitis
      3.J.Butler
      4.Little
      5.Long

      Offense
      1.Jackson
      2.Robinson
      3.Barron
      4.n/a
      5.n/a


      No way Bartell is in the top 5 the way he's been playing this year. He gets penalized too often and I'm yet to see the guy make a big play. I know that some injured players made my top five but even injured they are still our best guys.

              5. bartell

              spoon has the talent but just hasn't seemed to play well enough this year..ryan is good against the run, but i'd rather upgrade to a real nose tackle..i like butler a lot, he's close to making this list..i also like wade and fletcher as they gain experience, and grant/vobora tease me with potential. gibson, hall and ramsey have been solid when out there.

              o:
              1. sjax
              2. robinson
              3. brown
              4. smith (young, but i've liked what i've seen out of him very much so far)
              5. avery

              i also like burton as a slot receiver, and fells is getting better. cogs has done a nice job for the most part since week 1, though he is still as bad against the pass rush as always. karney has been ok when he's been out there, and i like greco.

                I like your list, but I think Barron did an outstanding job against one of the better defense units in the NFL and should be considered a top Offensive standout.

                He stepped it up and should be recognized for a job well-done.

                    Rams defense is bringin' the heat ..

                    QUESTION: What do you think has been the key(s) to the Rams defensive turnaround this season?

                    BERNIE MIKLASZ

                    In no particular order: (1) Fred Robbins is the anchor that’s been missing in the middle of the defensive line; (2) James Hall has 4 sacks, more than Jared Allen or Julius Peppers; (3) Chris Long has 7 quarterback knockdowns or hurries, which places him high on the list of league leaders; (4) MLB James Laurinaitis is no longer being suckered by misdirection plays and is playing the best ball of his young career; (5) as a set of starting corners Ron Bartell and Bradley Fletcher are allowing a low percentage of completions based on the number of passes attempted against them; (6) creative blitz schemes from head coach Steve Spagnuolo and coordinator Ken Flajole; (7) the Rams offense is more competitive and capable so the STL defense isn’t always placed in terrible situations.

                    JIM THOMAS

                    The improvement has come in layers. Up front, DT Fred Robbins has had a big impact in run defense while also providing an occasional inside push. DE James Hall is singlehandedly trying to answer the question: Can the Rams get a pass rush with their front four? At linebacker, James Laurinaitis has upgraded his play from his rookie season and has been noticeably better in coverage. And in a defensive scheme that puts a lot of pressure on its cornerbacks, Ron Bartell and Bradley Fletcher are getting it done.

                    BILL COATS

                    Fred Robbins has been strong at DT, both against the run and getting penetration. Na’il Diggs has solidified the linebacker corps. CBs Bradley Fletcher and Ron Bartell have been solid. Most of all, they’ve been able to force teams into FGs instead of TDs with an excellent third-down percentage.

                    JEFF GORDON

                    Personnel! Adding Fred Robbins to the middle of the defensive line was huge. Getting Bradley Fletcher back at cornerback was huge. Getting Ron Bartell healthy was large as well. Rookies George Selvie and Eugene Sims have added pass rushing skill at defensive end. The growth of youngsters James Laurinaitis and Chris Long has helped immensely. The Rams are more physical at the corners, stronger at the point of the attack and more capable of generating a pass rush with their front four.

                    KEVIN WHEELER (Host of “Sports Open Line” on KMOX)

                    There are several key areas of improvement but in my eyes – cliche alert! – it starts up front. Consistent pressure from Chris Long, James Hall’s all-around game, Fred Robbins’ veteran presence (and solid performance), Gary Gibson’s toughness and George Selvie’s emerging pass-rush skills have all played a role in making the defense more of a force.

                    Their collective play has made blitzes more effective, it has left the linebackers in position to make clean tackles and it’s taken...

                    The Rams, honest assessment. (Long, but a good read) Check it!
                    by RamsFan16
                    Why are expectations so low next season for us? As a fan, I feel like I know what we're capable of, last year we dealt with coaching problems, and that's what most of our problems are. We have some real good players.

                    I understand that our coaching staff hasn't coached yet, but with Steve Spagnuolo as Head Coach, Pat Shurmur (one of the best young offensive minds in football) as Offensive Coordinator, and Ken Flajole (a damn good coach) as defensive coordinator. For the first time, in a Rams Head Coaching hire, I feel like we made a really good decision on bringing these guys in.

                    On offense, of course our focal point will be Pro Bowler Steven Jackson. And one of the things we needed to do was bring in some offensive line help. We cut Pace, but to be honest, he was living by name, it wasn't the same Pro Bowler of a few years ago. We then brought in center Jason Brown who is one of the best Centers in the league, and is at a young age, we drafted Jason Smith, whose a beast. Of course, Jason Smith hasn't played a down yet, but I feel really confident in what he'll do, especially by the reports I've read on him already. We moved Barron to Left Tackle, so our starting line will be || LT Alex Barron | LG Jacob Bell (was a very good player, hopefully the new staff can get him back to where he was, if not.. well John Greco looked like a madman last year)| C Jason Brown | RG Richie Incognito (very good player) | RT Jason Smith || While most people don't know half of these guys, we will.

                    Not only did we improve the offensive line, but we brought in Pro Bowl fullback Mike Karney, who was released by New Orleans. And from what I read, a lot of Saints fans were upset over this move, and really the only reason was because he didn't fit into the pass heavy scheme. He's a big bruiser, and him blocking for Jackson is going to be HUGE! We signed blocking specialist Billy Bajema from San Fransisco, and traded for WR Laurant Robinson, who before injury last year was destined to be a starter in Atlanta after his great rookie season. Word is he's looking good so far, and Donnie Avery really improved his route running, and is catching everything thrown his way. I expect a huge year from Avery.

                    After those acquisitions, and our current lineup, Jackson WILL have a HUGE year.

                    Bulger has been crap the past two seasons, and while I'm a huge critique of him, I feel this offense is going to be better suited for him (the Run Heavy/West Coast Offense), and is going to make him excel again. He's not the strongest Quarterback in the world, so the quick short - mid range passes will be very good for him.


                    And on defense, we signed SS James Butler from the Giants. He's not a Pro Bowler, but he's a very nice player. We franchised young up and coming FS OJ Atogwe, and also signed young stud Ron Bartell to a multi year deal. With those guys, our secondary is potentially scary, and if the...

                    The "betcha can't name 10 players" game
                    by AvengerRam_old
                    Here's a novel way of measuring the quality of the Rams' roster.

                    For each starting player, can you name 10 players in the league you'd rather have (factoring in skill, age and injury history) at their position.

                    Right now, I betcha can't name 10 players you'd rather have (at their position) than:

                    Sam Bradford
                    Steven Jackson
                    Jason Brown
                    Chris Long
                    Fred Robbins
                    James Laurinaitis
                    Ron Bartell
                    O.J. Atogwe

                    Agree? Disagree? Is your list longer/shorter?

                    I know our Pass rush isn't great, but you can't have a great pass rush if the opposing QB can find someone open within 2-4 seconds on every pass play.

                    We have, what 1 sack after two games? Leonard Little is supposed to be a great pass rusher and I think he still is, but the secondary (Corners) can't cover long enough often to force any coverage sacks.

                    Are there any big name corners available via free-agency next year?
