2012 Rams compared to 2011 Rams

People have questioned whether we made the right moves, if our offensive line can protect Sam, and there are quite a few other complaints people have about the Rams going into 2012. Here are 5 things I look at and feel like the Rams could do a whole lot better this year than in 2011. The first is scheduling. I do not know if any of you did look at our schedule but we played the last 6 super bowl champs in one season(including the eventual super bowl champion Giants. We had one of the most brutal schedules out there. The Ravens, Steelers, Saints, Packers, Giants, Cowboys, Eagles, Bengals, and (as much as i hate to say it) 49ers all had extremely good teams last year. So good in fact that the only reason two of these teams didn't make the playoffs is that they're in the same division as the giants who did go. Also just a though but the AFC North who we played in 2011 is probably the only division since the 2002 division change to have 3 teams out of 4 make the playoffs in the same year. Second is our defense. Our starting corner is not Ron Bartell anymore, we have depth at that position. We no longer have and dbs named butler(James and Quincy). The old is out replaced by talented youth (look at corner, defensive tackle). Third is our passing game. Returning to a passing attack that fits our strengths is good for everyone. less stress on o lineman, Sam not calling protections yet, and best of all with an actual pass game our rbs can get some good yards. Fourth is running backs. Steven is a beast and with the condition he stays in i am not concerned about him getting injured, or being one of those typical 4 or 5 year backs. Although he might have finally gotten a change of pace back. Ill believe it when I see it though after choices like Chris Ogbonnaya ever got a shot as a Ram. However i do hope Pead is as good as some sports analysts say he can be. Finally Team mentality is the thing im most excited about. Under Spags the rams were a team divided by individual accomplishments(Chris Long saying he wont stop the run he wants to get sacks) if you needed an example. One other thing is that under someone like Spags who had no experience coaching, and alot of "coaches" that were his friends before he got that job. Where as Jeff Fisher brings experienced coaching, training, and a team first mentality. Those things help win... Look at the pats if you need proof.
