The Rams held their second straight padded practice today. The team focused on a couple of things today that are key factors in the offense improving their production; the red zone and against the blitz.
But it may not be going so well.
Rams offense getting a lot of practice settling for three in these red zone drills. :/— RamsHerd (@RamsHerd) July 31, 2013
Sam's accuracy not impressing in this "real-pressure" situation so far...— RamsHerd (@RamsHerd) July 31, 2013
It's early in camp, so it's not time to read into this much, but both will be very important to watch for when the Rams play their pre-season games.
Zac Stacy may have found himself a new nickname.
Jo-Lonn Dunbar said they call Zac Stacy "The Juggernaut". #RamsCamp— Jamal Collier (@StatManJ) July 31, 2013
I think Rams Nation can find a much better nickname for our new power back. In time, it will come.Quick recap of what went down at Rams camp today.
The rookie has also impressed many fans in pads these last two practices.
Stacy has really flashed today running the ball #Ramscamp— Jim Fadler (@jimiramsboy) July 31, 2013
NFL Network was in the house on their tour around all the NFL Training Camps. Hopefully they got some nice B-roll of Tavon Austin, being Tavon Austin.
Our friend Ramsherd chimed in with a key observation.
Schottenheimer trying to create mismatches by putting a RB wide outside Tavon Austin. Forces defense to adjust. Getting Sam easy throws.— RamsHerd (@RamsHerd) July 31, 2013
I think the offense may have many plays designed to get Sam Bradford some easy throws. The offense has some speed and guys who can get YAC now. I expect they will try to use that to their advantage quite often in 2013.
Nick Johnson sat out practice with a left leg injury. These fringe players need all the time they can get in practice. Hopefully he can get back out there soon.

Brain Quick may just have the highlight of training camp. He completely embarrassed Janoris Jenkins on this double move.
And finally, what's a day of Rams camp without Smack Cam?
