PLAYERS: Danny Amendola
TEAMS: St. Louis Rams
Even though there’s been some speculation that the St. Louis Rams will use their franchise tag on wide receiver Danny Amendola next season, there’s also a chance they decide to move on from him because of how injury prone he’s been lately. “I think it could be a tough call with him,” one team insider said of Amendola’s future in St. Louis. “He’s been playing like a No. 1 receiver, no doubt. But as tough and gritty as he appears to be, he’s also missed 18 of the last 25 games.”   Amendola has been very good this season, but I don’t believe the Rams should sign him to a long-term deal.  I would franchise him next season and see how he holds up.   var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_wi

Sam Bradford and the offense utterly failed at four of those six factors, and it cost us a win against a very beatable opponent.  Aside from limiting pre-snap penalties...

Six signs of improvement from the Rams' Offense
