The headline pretty much says it all on this one.
I try to stay pretty objective regarding the Rams because of my duties here at cover32 Rams, but even with my most intense blue and gold blinders on, I don’t think I could pick the Rams as one of the eight most likely teams to make the Super Bowl next year.
But that’s what John Clayton wrote.
Rams coach Jeff Fisher has the youngest team in football. He has two first-round picks, including the second overall choice in the draft.
It should be noted that Clayton mentioned all four NFC West teams in this piece, so it’s impossible for all eight of these teams to even make the playoffs. I think he was simply making the point of how strong the NFC – particular the vaunted NFC West – will be next season. Give it a read to see his full rationale.
