Today Tuesday, 5th of April of 2011, NFL Network with lead overview of State of the Rams, former Rams Qb Kurt Warner understates the next leading champion of the NFC West, the St Louis Rams. First and for most go check out the State of the Rams at NFL.com/videos. Hearing Kurt Warner speak about the Rams was absurd. He went out on a limb by saying that the Rams have no playmakers outside of Bradford. Clearly he hasn't seen the Rams great strides in 2010. He also stated that if the Cardinals or 49ers get an upgrade at quarterback they will be ahead of the Rams. Big understatement ever. The Rams defense vastly improved and did its most part in competitive play. In my opinion, the chicken shit offense ran by either Pat shurmor or Spagnoulo and a weak corp of wide receivers gave ball games away. Let me just say this in a different way, the Rams defense gaved the offense plenty of opportunities to score but the offense disappointed. With a new coordinator that brings aggression, healthy corp of wide outs. Its not clear as to why Kurt Warner down plays the Rams so badly. It angers me to see and hear him say that the Rams have no playmakers Defensively and offensively, I cannot even fathom. After his lack of knowledge of the improving Rams, Steve Wyche points out the improvement the Rams and downplays Kurt Warner. Thank goodness someone knows.
UPDATE: I stated that Kurt Warner's view that the Rams have no playmakers outside of Bradford was absurd. In my mind its still true. The Rams indeed holds playmakers in their roster. Chris Long is in fact a playmaker,I don't now why he gets smashed in the comment below, if it wasn't for his last minute save,( i.e causing the fumble sack vs the 49ers to kill their drive or what about in Denver where he struck Kyle Orton to force a turnover on downs,not to mention his 8.5 sacks, by the way the defense was playing horrible in that game, Denver should have won by the way they were scoring. Clearly he's a playmaker. James Hall, Fred Robbins, James Laurinitis, are indeed playmakers. This year more talent will uprise and thus more playmakers. On offense I consider Donny Avery, Marc Clayton, Amendola, Steven Jackson, Playmakers. True some didn't play because of injuries, but nevertheless playmakers. That's why I'm so optimistic about the Rams in 2011 despite having a tough schedule. A healthy corps of receivers and McDaniel upbringing this year. I watched all Rams games of 2010, and you can not tell me you didn't see some drives where the Rams were moving downfield. Just imagine with a healthy corp of wideouts. Not to mention that Sam Bradford will be given the chance to read coverages, change plays, make decisions based on his view and not the constricted view of a limited offensive scheme. His role will be complete.
And also by saying that the Rams Pass defense got the sacks because of a 2nd ranked weak team schedule is absurd as well.The Rams got 7 sacks against a very good team in the Chargers. And it didn't stop their.
