Happy new year Rams Fans! Hope you all had a great new years eve and aren’t suffering too much from the aftereffects. Every year people make up a new year’s resolution, here are a few new year’s resolutions for the St. Louis Rams.

 

Become More Disciplined

Having that nobody is going to mess with us, it’s us against the world mentality is great, until you start getting stupid. That is exactly what happened at times with the Rams this season. Good teams have the ability to overcome penalties, but when you are an average team like the Rams, penalties make the easy things difficult, and begin to affect the game.

The Rams had the second most penalties per game this season with 7.7 and averaged 63.1 yards per game in penalties which is the fourth most. The Rams also had the most personal foul penalties in the league.

All of that goes back to an undisciplined team. If the Rams want to take the next step, they need to stop committing these mental errors.

 

Do Better In The Division

Last season the Rams went 4-1-1 in the division, this season was a complete different story as the Rams went 1-5. Part of that may have been the absence of Sam Bradford, but in order to make the playoffs, you have to win your division.

The NFC West isn’t going to get any easier in time soon. We know the Rams are capable of beating teams like the 49ers and Seahawks, they just have to be able to do it. Having the Sam Bradford back next season should help.

 

Become A Winning Franchise

This is easier said than done, but for the past decade, their hasn’t been much winning in St. Louis. This team is on the right track with the corp players they have in place and their draft picks. It’s only a matter of putting the pieces in place.

The Rams haven’t had a winning record since 2003. It’s time for this team to find it’s winning ways and get back on the winning track. This is a young team, if they can start winning, they will be good for a long time.

 

Those are our new year’s resolutions. Let us know what you think and give us your new year’s resolutions for the St. Louis Rams. Here’s to a great 2014, Go Rams!
