4for4 winners and losers: offensive line




This isnt news to people around here, we are all very optimistic with the rams and especially the offensive line. But, it is nice to see other people acknowledging or noting the same things we at TST see and feel. So i just figured I'd share what was being said on a fantasy website....

The Rams fall into the "winners" category but not without a caveat. Newly signed Jake Long and former big-money free agent Harvey Dahl are both coming off triceps injuries. Rodger Saffold also missed 13 games over the last two years due to various injuries and center Scott Wells had surgery on his right knee back in January. The Rams also must decide on a starter at right guard, as Rok Watkins (one-game suspension), Chris Williams, Shelley Smith and rookie Barrett Jones are all competing at that spot.

But if this group can stay injury-free, there's no question that the Rams have upgraded the talent in front of Sam Bradford. Long must re-discover his 2008-2010 form and Saffold will need to learn the nuances of playing on the right side after serving as the team's left tackle since 2010. But Paul Boudreau is one of the finest offensive line coaches in the NFL and he's had success with much less physical talent over the years.

With Steven Jackson now in Atlanta, St. Louis' offense runs through Bradford and the passing game. We'll have to wait and see if the line can stay healthy but if it does, Bradford, Jared Cook, Tavon Austin, Chris Givens and Brian Quick will all benefit.
