NFL Preview Show Extravaganza: St. Louis Rams

Today, we continue to profile the NFC West with the St. Louis Rams.

The Rams finished the season 3-13. This team was awful last season. Injuries plagued the team and the offense struggled a lot.

Marc Bulger had one of his worse seasons in his career. Bulger threw for 2300 yards, 11 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. The 11 touchdowns was a career worst for Bulger.

One huge factor for the Rams in 2008 will be Steven Jackson. The 1000 yard rusher is currently in a holdout, but should be ready to play come the regular season. If Jackson stays healthy, it will be hard not to give him a new contract. Only time will tell if a deal gets done during training camp or not.

The Rams will open the regular season on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Rams play notable home games against New York (Giants), Chicago and Miami. On the road, the Rams will face Washington, Atlanta and New York (Jets):

Time for those burnin questions (yearbook style):
  • Marc Bulger will: Throw for 3000 yards

  • Steven Jackson will: Be ready for week 1, rush for 1000 yards

  • Number of Chevy truck ads featuring Chris Long with Howie Long: About four (Maybe two for the playoffs)

  • Number of sacks for Long: 4

  • Torry Holt will: Retire in 3 years (I'll make a hall of fame case for him later)

  • Scott Linehan will: Still be coach next year

  • Coolest names (Top 3): Pisa Tinoisamoa, Fakhir Brown, Richie Incognito

  • 80s song to best describe team: Lost in Your Eyes- Debbie Gibson

  • In 2008, the Rams will: Go 7-9
