Random Ramsdom, 10/9: No Days Off

The St. Louis Rams stayed busy this week.

The St. Louis Rams are off today, but they have plenty of work to do with the break. Head coach Steve Spagnuolo and his staff spent the week watching film and self-scouting. Let's take a look at what's happening. 

McDaniels didn't envision this mess - The gifted young offensive coordinator, after a bad run as head coach, is struggling in St. Louis. McDaniels acknowledges that it's a multifaceted problem, from the tackles to the snap count to the playbook.

Special teams doing Rams no favors - Special teams haven't been very good for the Rams either, in case you haven't noticed. Returns, both kicks and punts, have been the biggest problem, as opposed to the coverage.

Updated: NFC West roided-out rosters - A look at the Rams' roster reveals a troubling lack of young talent down the depth chart. Certainly the cornerback situation has shown that, but one talented young player ended up injured before the season began, Jerome Murphy. Offensive line is a good example where the Rams lack talent behind the starters.

Estate Taxes Could Put The Raiders On The Market - The Davis family could face estate taxes in the hundreds of millions of dollars. This is not unlike the situation faced by Georgia Frontiere's children when she died. Forbes expects the Raiders to be on the market within 12 months.

Trading The Top Pick In The 2012 NFL Draft - In one month's time, we've gone from discussing the St. Louis Rams' playoff prospects to how they might handle the first pick in the 2012 NFL draft. Mike Sando runs down some of the potential trade scenarios for the Rams if they do end up with the top pick in the draft.
