Every NFL team has a 52 man roster. On every roster there tends to be a least loved and most loved player. The terminology tends to be most hated but when I asked fans in the fan sites who is the most hated most of them said that they do not hate any fans on the roster. It's things like that which make me so proud to be a Rams fan! It was a little bit hard to come up with a consensus for least loved player but after looking at statistics and performances, I was able to pick a player.

Least Loved

Jason Smith hasn't done anything to get in trouble in the off-seasons, but the only thing he has managed to do during the regular seasons has been to get demoted. The right tackle is one of the main players who protects the quarterback. Sam Bradford hasn't been able to prosper as a quarterback since he hasn't gotten the protection he needed.

Bradford, Rams take a step back against the Cowboys

There are nice ways to play off preseason losses. But after the Rams' first string offense and defense fell apart against an undermanned Dallas Cowboys team, playing without Demarcus Ware or their top three pass-catchers, being nice just isn't realistic. Jeff Fisher's new team regressed to a lot of bad habits that they retained from the Steve Spagnuolo era: poor positioning...
