ST. LOUIS -- If there is someone on the St. Louis Rams' defensive line who can dethrone the team's king of sacks (Chris Long), it is most likely the man who lines up on his opposite side (Robert Quinn).
Quinn, a right defensive end, finished 2012 with 10.5 sacks, just one behind Long's total. Together, the two spearheaded an effort that led to the Rams tying with Denver for most sacks (52) in the NFL.
Quinn declined to provide an exact goal for 2013, but he was gracious enough to spend some time talking sacks with FOXSportsMidwest.com this week.
After 10.5 sacks last season, how many do you think you can get this year?
"I think if you set a number on it, say 10, and I fall short with eight or nine, you're going to be disappointed in yourself. If you want to set a number, you set it extremely high, so it's impossible to reach. When you fall short, you know, it's pretty reasonable. However many you end up with at the end of the season -- that's how many you can get."
