The 2014 Saint Louis Rams posted by Rams Fan
The question for the Rams going forward is whether Sam Bradford will become a franchise quarterback or not. The quarterback did have a good rookie campaign four years ago but he has been pedestrian in the past three years. He has also missed 15 games since his rookie year. He has never had a YPA more than 6.7 and while he has a touchdown to interception ratio of 14:4, most of these scores were made during garbage time.
The problem is that Bradford is paid like a superstar but he has not performed like one. Most recently it was announced that Bradford is out for the season with a torn ACL, and that could be it for his career in St. Louis. In his stead, veteran Shaun Hill will be starting for the Rams.
The Rams did add former number two overall pick Greg Robinson last spring with the hopes that he’ll contribute in offense. He could team up with left tackle Jake Long, Scott Wells, Rodger Saffold, and Joseph Barksdale up front.
Another new acquisition that could help their cause is Kenny Britt. A very talented receiver, Britt has had personal issues and injuries but could thrive under coach Jeff Fisher. If Fisher can do so, he might make Britt and Tavon Austin quite a good pair.
The Rams did improve their defense by picking interior disruptor Aaron Donald with the 13th pick in the 2014 Draft. Donald will make the Rams defense more frightening and could pose problems to top quarterbacks like Colin Kaepernick.
Donald could boost the Rams’ sack total this year. Last year, Robert Quinn had 19 sacks in his junior year and the 24-year-old figures to be better this season. Chris Long had 33 sacks over the past three years and should contribute as well.Continue reading "The 2014 Saint Louis Rams"
