Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post Dispatch wrote an interesting column yesterday in which he said the Rams need much more than they admit.
As Miklasz points out, Rams general manager Les Snead might be a bit too comfortable with the status quo, especially after considering how tough the divisional competition is. As Miklasz says:
“Except that during his interview rounds, Snead says …
Sam Bradford is still the Rams’ dream quarterback, the Rams do not need to upgrade at wide receiver, and the offensive line will be fine.
Even though Bradford has been healthy for only 45 of his teams’ (Oklahoma and Rams) last 77 games. …
Even though Chris Givens led their wideouts with only 569 receiving yards in 2013. …
Even though the Rams are looking at the potential loss off free-agent guard and tackle Roger Saffold, may not have left tackle Jake Long (knee) ready for the start of the season and will probably have to revamp the interior line.
They have no major needs on offense?
What do you think? Does Snead truly believe that the Rams offense is mostly set? Or is he perhaps just blowing smoke signals, as general managers tend to do in the lead-up to the draft?
What was the biggest disappointment of the 2013 season for St. Louis?
