|St Louis Rams |
The Rams can't be worse than last year, right? A new coach with plenty of experience will help as will some additions on both sides of the ball. The defense looks improved with a revamped secondary and the offense will be better with more talent at receiver. The Rams are still a ways away from being a playoff team. Just finishing 7-9 would be a huge plus for this team after last season's disastrous year.
Sam Bradford, QB. Last season was supposed to be the breakout year for Bradford but he battled injury and struggled in an offense that lacked playmakers at receiver. The Rams should be more conservative offensively this season but at least have some more talent at receiver, which is a positive for Bradford. And Bradford is healthy, which is another plus for the coming year. He might not have a huge season but is setup for his best season as a pro. Expect him to take a step forward in 2012.
Steven Jackson, RB. Jackson is nearing that magical age of 30 and has plenty of carries under his belt. He also has battled some nagging injuries the last few years, which has limited him some game day. He still might have a good season or two left but a drop in production is expected at this stage of his career.
