Rams sit 17th in PFT’s preseason power rankings

The St. Louis Rams exceeded expectations last year and were in contention to earn a playoff spot until the closing weeks of the regular season. They went 2-1-1 against division rivals Seattle and San Francisco and won four of their final six games to end the year.

The Rams clearly appear to be a team on the rise. Can the additions of Tavon Austin and Jared Cook to the offense help Sam Bradford take a step forward into the playoffs in his fourth season?

For now, we have the Rams ranked 17th as training camps get set to open. Too high? Too low? Let us know.

    Make or break year for Bradford. I’m rooting for him he seems like a good guy. Not sure about his leadership skills though. I still don’t think he has the right pieces around him talent-wise.

    That defense is young, hungry, and nasty though. It will keep them in PLENTY of games.

    By season’s end, they may have the highest power ranking of non-playoff teams. Too much strength in the division.

    NFC West is sending 3 teams to the playoffs which means at least top 12 for Rams. More like top 9 when half of the AFC playoff teams wouldn’t even get wildcards if they were in the NFC.

    Seahawk fan here. It’s great to see the Rams back and competitive again. I always preferred the Rams-Seahawks rivalry to the 49ers rivalry. They really gave us something to hate – with Isaac Bruce putting his helmet on our field, and beating us at home in the 2004 playoffs.

    Anyway, it’s great to see the Rams back, and I’m going to call it now:

    Rams will take the wildcard spot and knock the 49ers out of the playoffs.

    You heard it here first.

    Wildly overrated.

    St. Louis will never go anywhere as long as Sam “Badd for Rams” Bradford is at the helm, guaranteed. He was always an overrated noodle armed turd playing in a cartoon offense on a loaded team at Jokelahoma.

    middle of the pack sounds about right for a team coached by Coacho-Ocho-y-Ocho (Fisher)…

    The Rams might be the surprise team in the NFC. They proved they can play with the powerhouses like Seattle,San Fran, and Green Bay. The problem is they lose the games that on paper they should win. I do agree Bradford should have no excuses to get his numbers a lot higher (4,000 yards, 30td’s)

    Seahawks fans are delusional. Must be taking dumb dumb pills.

    Why they infect every thread is an act of insecurity.

    All of the on-paper improvements for this team will mean jack sh*t if that O-line doesn’t protect Bradford. If the line can be adequate, this will be a solid team.

    Rams are my NFC sleeper team for 2013. This is the right spot for them.

    Rams went 2-1-1 against division rivals Seattle and San Fran even though that tie against the Niners seemed like a win.

    That classic Seahawks/Saint Louis Rams rivalry was one for the ages. I forgot how many legendary battles they had.

    This number might be a little low.

    Lots of talent and another year of experience will have them in the hunt late for a playoff.

    I expect them to be top 12 at years end.

    What a awesome and creative nickname. But the Seahawks will never win with with Russell “Not Good for Seattle” Wilson at QB.
