NFL Season Preview: #31 St. Louis Rams

with 2 comments

Overview: The Rams were decimated with injuries last season. RB Steven Jackson couldn’t make it through his second straight season without missing games with injury, along with QB Marc Bulger, who missed only one game, but left early three times. This all resulted in a 2-14 finish.

Offseason Moves: St. Louis also got a new coach, in Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. In the draft, the Rams took Baylor T Jason Smith with the second overall pick, and snatched up Ohio State standout LB James Laurinaitis with their second round pick. The Rams took a step, possibly in the wrong direction, when they released All-Pro WR Torry Holt and T Orlando Pace this off season. Besides this, the Rams only made small moves to add to their club. They traded for WR Ronald Curry, signed DT Hollis Thomas, and signed once promising WR Laurent Robinson.

Upcoming Season: St. Louis hasn’t done too much to improve. It may take a while for coach Steve Spagnuolo to get his guys in there, and to implement his system, but in the mean time things aren’t looking too great for the Rams.

Donnie AveryPlayer to watch: Many experts believe that Steven Jackson will return to form this season, but I am more concerned with WR Donnie Avery. Avery had Torry Holt to gain experience from last year, but now Avery has to step up and be the number one receiver. After leading rookies in receiving yards, Donnie Avery looks ready for the challenge.

Prediction: 3-13, 4th in NFC West

Nothing shows that the Rams will get too much better, but looking at their schedule, they could at least make a one game improvement over last season.
