Rams Should Go With What They Have

Rams Minicamp Football
So we’ve got a little turmoil. Not feeling the love since no one has decreed their love for us by supplying a permanent home. We could give into our insecurity and feel sorry for ourselves. We might think “It has been a few years since Bulger had a pro bowl year” or we may be tempted to steal a few receivers away from the DC Divas (I hear Crystal Anyanwu might be interested), but no. We will instead make the proverbial lemonade out of lemons.

We will go with what we’ve got. So what do we got? We have a running game. We have Steven Jackson who is one of the best running backs in the NFL. And why is this important? In his own words…“The running back sets the tempo for the offense, … If I’m out there banging on people, it lets the defense know it’s time to get it on. Everything has to change. Everything needs a new beginning. They used to play power football with Eric Dickerson and Bettis with this franchise. It’s time to go back to those days.” Steven Jackson.

It is time. The key to Steven Jackson having a great year is the success of the entire running back team. Jackson has only had a 16 game season once during his 5 year career. Pittman and Darby really need to step up and relieve some of the strain laid upon Jackson’s shoulders. (We don’t want Jackson to be injured and Twittering on the sidelines all season.)

The Rams have an experienced quarterback, a newly rebuilt offensive line, and a young receiving core. This team will be relying on Jackson et all. Let’s go out there and get it done with what we’ve got.

    Good article.
    Stephen Jackson is a good back, too bad he is on a bad team.

    However, I see things turning around during the Spagnulo era.

    We shall see.
