Why the St. Louis Rams will rise in the NFC West

The St. Louis Rams have accomplished a curious and rare feat in today’s NFL. They’ve been consistently average. Or thereabouts at least, give or take a crushing loss. Jeff Fisher has been the head coach in St. Louis for three seasons, and overall his record during that time is 20-27-1. He recently concluded his worst season with the Rams, finishing 2014 at 6-10.

It’s nice dreaming about the idea that one big signing in free agency can solve all the problems the Chicago Bears had on defense in 2014.  In reality, like it or not, issues go far deeper than that.  So all of this talk about how Ndamukong Suh or Justin Houston can save the defense and get them back to dominant form needs to stop.

Should the St. Louis Rams consider a QB in the 2015 NFL Draft?

Right now, the St. Louis Rams are a mess at quarterback. Sam Bradford is coming off of another injury, having missed the entire 2014 season after blowing out his knee during the preseason. Shaun Hill proved to be marginal at best when filling in for Bradford. And Austin Davis was even worse. Given the number of times Bradford has been hurt, it’s time for the Rams to move on. They...

He’s also proven to be, in retrospect, Austin Davis’ main security blanket. Because...
