NFL Power Rankings Week 18: The Ending

New, comments

The Rams' 6-10 season certainly reeks of disappointment. How will they fare in the final power rankings of 2014?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Rams spent nearly the entire year among all power rankings in the bottom half. Obviously, a week 17 loss in Seattle isn't going to change that.

As always, if there's a power ranking you think merits inclusion, let me know and I'll start putting it in.

SB Nation: 23rd (22nd)

ESPN: 22nd (25th)

Is it Groundhog Day in St. Louis? Another losing season for the Rams and the franchise is still wondering if Sam Bradford is "the guy."

NFL.com: 21st (19th)

Rams fans need something different to hang their horns on than the "We played 'em tough this year" mantra. Yes, played 'em tough enough to go 6-10, one win fewer than each of the last two seasons. With question marks surrounding the future of the franchise, the time to make a move is now. (Not to L.A., but in the standings.) It starts with management. That doesn't necessarily mean firing people; rather, it's about changing the approach. Time for a bold move. Quarterback is a nice place to start. And no, I am not implying a Jay Cutler transaction.

The defense is set, the wide receivers are good enough and the running backs are adequate enough for a run in 2015 but QB remains the big question.

Yahoo! Sports: 23rd (23rd)

If I'm picking a team that will take Jay Cutler off Chicago's hands, this is the one.

If this team ever realizes its potential, it would never lose a game.
