St. Louis Rams focused on winning: Random Ramsdom, 10/15

random ramsdom 1

The St. Louis Rams continue to get a mixed bag of luck with injuries this season. Costly injuries to Donnie Avery and Mark Clayton have left the team perilously thin at receiver. On the other hand, they get key players back from injury every week. 

This week, Steven Jackson is completely healthy, "100 percent." Jackson had suffered a groin injury against Washington, missing half that game and playing with limited strength in the next two. The Rams will need him against a San Diego defense stingy with the points. 

Tight ends Michael Hoomanawanui and Billy Bajema return this week as well. That's good news for QB Sam Bradford given the blocking ability of both players and the receiving potential Hoomanawanui provides. 

Out this week is LB Chris Chamberlain and possibly David Vobora, though not because of his vehicle situation

This week's game will be televised. Hooray. 

Mike Sando has a piece breaking down the NFC West QBs. Sam Bradford has pretty good numbers, especially outside the pocket. Some improvement in the red zone could help. Bradford's rookie-ness shows in the stats, but the most troubling aspect for the Rams is the high frequency of dropped passes. With 15 drops on 197 targets, the Rams have the 5th highest drop percentage in the league, 7.6 percent. 

recent poll showed that the St. Louis Rams went from 30th to 24th as the favorite team for American football fans. 

If only Jimmy Kennedy had this kind of passion when he played in St. Louis. To me, that's more proof of just how important it was to change the mentality around Rams Park over the last two seasons. Now, we'll see what happens this week. 

Sounds like Sam Bradford has some strong thoughts on this week's game following the last one.
