Coach Fisher ” We Made Strides”
The St.Louis Rams 20-13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks at home is not enough to hold the Rams back from recognizing this season achievements. By position the Rams offensive line begun to have continuity and let Sam Bradford step into some long throws and steady his nervous feet.
The defensive line play slowed the terrible rushing against yards that has plagued the defense for years and Chris Long has come into his own. The linebackers started playing on their toes this season meaning being aggressive oppose to letting plays come to them, I’m sure James Lurranitis will improve at getting off of blocks he is very coach able and committed.
Most improved goes to Defensive backs, Cortland Finnegan the player you most hate on somebody else’s team love him when he’s on yours and possible rookie of the year Jenkins tough enough to go one on one with the leagues best receivers.
Running Backs, Stephen Jackson gave notice he wanted to return next year after posting another 1000 yard season and the back ups played well enough to get a look at again next season. Receivers played okay, Danny Amendola had another injury riddle season but is all heart and is a perfect fit for the rams hopefully the rookie receivers will get better after having a year under their belt and we wont have to waste a #1 draft pick for more.
Overall the team played a C- season mass improvement from three years of F football. “I think as we sit back and get away from it a little bit and start to do our assessment, I think we’ll come away feeling like we made strides,” Fisher said as reported by the Post Dispatch. “We took advantage of the opportunity to play a lot of young players. Playing time for young players is essential to their improvement. So we will expect to see them improve over the next couple of years.”
