Anyone else tired from staying up to watch the end of the Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs game last night? Now, with a break in the action, we can divert our attention back to the St. Louis Rams. While the Aaron Hernandez story is capturing most of the NFL headlines, there was still some solid content pumped out this week referencing the Rams. Here is what we have for you this morning…
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Brian Quick was manning a lower tier spot on the Rams’ receiver depth chart. That threw some into panic mode, discombobulated by the fact that our 2012 2nd rounder was not “progressing.” In this piece, Turf Show Times breaks down why slotting on the depth chart is irrelevant at this point in the offseason, so those Brian Quick fans can take a deep breath.
When is it too early to start Power Ranking the NFL? NEVER! Yesterday, Bleacher Report released one of the first rankings of the 2013 season. For the first time in half a decade, the St. Louis Rams are being projected to start outside of the Bottom 10 in the league. Can they make it into the Top 15?
With the star-power of Danny Amendola and Steven Jackson gone, are there any players on the team that even receive enough attention to be consider “overrated”? Yes, even on an youth-filled, underdog like the St. Louis Rams there a handful of overrated players heading into the 2013 season. Sam Bradford? Chris Long? Nope, you’ll have to click it to find out…
Sam Bradford has never been regarded as a “high” fantasy football pick, especially when comparable quarterbacks have always had superior talent to throw the ball to on the outside. Last season, King Sam and Andy Dalton were the most comparable, at least statistically speaking, even with A.J. Green on the receiving end of a majority of the Red Rifle’s passes. Now, with Tavon Austin, Jared Cook, and the return of some of the offensive threats from last season, does Bradford project as the better fantasy pick next season?
Remember the scrum between the St. Louis Rams’ organization and the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission over the plan to renovate and upgrade the Edward Jones Dome? To the general public, the battle has now been placed on the backburner, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still being waged behind closed doors. Turns out, the CVC reimbursed the Rams’ back in May for their legal fees during the arbitration period, after both teams could not reach an agreement on plans. There are still no plans in place, but stories like these remind us that the St. Louis Rams are not “safe” from a potential relocation.
