Random Ramsdom: Speed Kills


In the NFL, you have to be big or fast. And it is strongly recommended that you are actually both. The Rams put a premium on speed the last two years, and the dividends may be paying out in 2013.

Chris Givens, Jared Cook, and Tavon Austin will surely help the Rams 4x100 team, but there's no doubt Jeff Fisher is hoping this exceptional speed will help electrify a stagnant offense. The past few years, Sam Bradford has been the driver of a 92' Ford Taurus, and the offense has performed accordingly. This year the Rams will give him the keys to something newer, faster, and sexier. Turf Show Times own Brandon Bate discussed this in his article yesterday. Will this faster Rams offense be more effective in 2013 than it has been in the last decade? Ram's fans wait eagerly with their fingers crossed.

On to the news!

Rams dodge a bullet with problem child player:

You know how you can tell just how smart Jeff Fisher is? Fisher didn't need to spend much more than a week with Titus Young before figuring out that he was knucklehead who could not be trusted to stay out of trouble. Young was arrested a few days ago for DUI, but the worst part was that he was quickly arrested again the next day for illegally trying to "reacquire" his automobile from the impound lot. The Rams truly dodged a bullet by making Young's stay in St. Louis a short one.

Can TJ McDonald follow in his fathers Pro-Bowl footsteps?:

Rams fans would be very excited to see a secondary player in the Pro-Bowl. What's more, fans would be elated to see a player like McDonald overshadow the likes of Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas in the NFC West.

Two early roster projections: Turf Show Times and Bleacher Report

It's almost impossible to project the final 53 at this point; however, once you start placing players on the chart you realize what spots may be open, and who might be vying for a starting position. Check both depth charts out, and see for yourself who may be battling for a spot this year.

Baily brings big play potential:

With all the Rams new toys, could it be that Stedman Baily becomes the Rams newest big-play machine?

Stay classy Rams fans.
