Found June 15, 2012 on Fox Sports Midwest:
ST. LOUIS Brian Schottenheimer was hired to heal. The new St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator will be asked to do many things to repair one of the NFLs worst units last season, but mainly, his job is to make his franchises greatest weakness become a strength. With that task, hes eager to revive his career in the Gateway City. Its shown in moments like Thursday afternoon, when the former New York Jets coordinator stands near a practice field at Rams Park as players scatter after minicamp. Hes speaking about progress since he was hired in January as Sam Bradfords third coordinator in as many years. He says about 90 percent of his West Coast-like system has been installed and that mentoring a quarterback with elite potential excites him. What we tried to do was overload them a little bit in the beginning, Schottenheimersays of introducing the offense. We tried to go back and repeat things so they could hear it a second, third, fourth and fifth time. But Im very, very pleased. O...

Robert Quinn continuing to impress Rams

Robert Quinn was a 1st round pick of the St. Louis Rams in the 2011 NFL Draft and he was viewed as such a steal at 14 that the Rams took him even though they didn’t have an immediate need at the position. Quinn played in a situational role last season as a rookie, with 6 sacks, 9 quarterback hits, and 21 quarterback pressures, though he graded out negatively against the run on...

St. Louis Rams: Most Overrated and Underrated Players

Who are the most overrated and underrated players on the Rams roster? That depends on who you ask.  However, there are two players that stand out in my mind based on their statistics. It was hard to pick two players considering that the Rams have hired Jeff Fisher and a whole new coaching staff. The future is looking good for St. Louis but I'm basing the list based on the past...

2012 Post Draft Winners/Losers: St. Louis Rams

The Rams finally did a couple of things that we and many others have been calling for - they took the WR seriously early in the draft by selecting Brian Quick and they addressed my biggest gripe with them for years by drafting RB with Isiah Pead. This team has done a disservice to Steven Jackson by not providing him with a real backup. Remember when they played him in 2010 with...

A bulked up and healthy Rodger Saffold can only help Sam Bradford in 2012. - (Photo credit: Wikipedia) St. Louis Rams left tackle Rodger Saffold had a disappointing season in 2011.  Even before his season was cut short by a torn pectoral muscle, Saffold did not seem to improve upon what was an impressive rookie season and was part of possibly one of the worst offensive lines in...

Rams sign Rocky McIntosh

The Rams have signed free agent outside linebacker Rocky McIntosh. It’s June so there are not a lot of impact signings, if any, but this move might have any impact for the Rams. McIntosh was only still available on the market this long because he struggled in Washington’s 3-4 over the last 2 seasons, losing his starting job to Perry Riley in the middle of last season. However...
