The ‘greatest show on turf` days for St. Louis are just a distant memory as this team has fallen on hard times as of late. The Rams followed up a 3-13 record in 2007 with a 2-14 record in 2008. Not to be outdone, they sunk to 1-15 in 2009 to garner the worst record in the NFL.

Steve Spagnuolo enters his second season as head coach believing his team has already hit rock bottom, looking optimistically to the 2010 season as a launching pad to a rise back to the top. The main problem is that this team may still not have the necessary talent to get off the ground.

With the first overall pick in the draft, the Rams decided to roll the dice on Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford as being the franchise-type player that can lead the turnaround. While he is currently working with the second team, you can expect Bradford to be elevated to the starting role fairly early in the season. Until that time, A.J. Feeley will be the Ram’s starter.

Whoever is behind center, their primary role will be to hand the ball off to RB Steven Jackson, who was the lone bright spot on this offense last season. He led the NFC with 1,416 rushing yards on 324 carries. He was also the team’s leading receiver with 51 receptions for 322 yards. WR Donnie Avery was second in catches with 47 for 589 yards. Despite Jackson’s efforts, St Louis finished the season with the 29th ranked offense in the league.

The Rams showed inconsistency on both sides of the ball as their defense was ranked 29th overall as well. They were 27th against the run and 31st in points allowed, giving up an average of 27.2 per game. In picking his poison, Spagnuolo decided to primarily address the needs on offense by only selecting one defensive player with their first five picks in the draft; third round pick CB Jerome Murphy. The Rams did sign DT Fred Robbins and CB Kevin Dockery as unrestricted free agents from the Giants, but these few band aids will not be able to fix everything that is wrong with this defense.

The Rams have really struggled playing at home over the past three years as out of the six games they did win, four were on the road. Against the spread in 2009 St.Louis had a fairly good year compared to its actual record. It was 7-9 overall; 3-5 at home and 4-4 on the road. This is something to keep in mind when looking for ‘road dogs` this year.

While many people believe that the NFC West is one of the weakest divisions in football. If that is the case then the Rams are clearly the weakest team in the West. I like their chances to win more than one or two games but more than five would be a real stretch.

2010 Prediction: 4th in the NFC West
Win Total: UNDER
