The St. Louis Rams 2012 training camp is underway, with the rookies starting practice on Wednesday. The full squad is due to report on Saturday, with the first team practice scheduled for the next day, all taking place while St. Louis and the Midwest bakes in the hottest year on record so far.
Setting aside weather complaints for weather puns, the heat is on for the Rams in this year's camp (get it?). Owner Stan Kroenke spared no expense in hiring an experienced head coach, Jeff Fisher, who brings some much needed confidence and swagger to a moribund team.
Fisher needs every ounce of it he can squeeze out of his salt and pepper mustache, because turning around a team that has averaged three years for the last five year is a big job. At stake, is nothing less than the team's future, maybe their future in St. Louis even.
So what battles need to be resolved in training camp this year? Let's take a look as TST returns to the YouTubes!
