It's been an up and down year three years for the St. Louis Rams. This was supposed to be season Jeff Fisher's team put it all together and made a run at the playoffs. Unfortunately, that's not going to be the case. The Rams are sitting at 2-5 with a tough schedule ahead of them and a heaping helping of salary on injured reserve.
