(FootballStL) -- Nobody in St. Louis thought the Rams would be 4-6 at this point in the season. It just wasn’t conceivable back in training camp when Sam Bradford was throwing the ball to his new toys in Jared Cook, Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey.
But the NFL is what it is and that’s a bottom line business. You are what your record says you are. And right now the Rams are 4-6 and in last place in the NFC West.
“Well, we’re disappointed with the six (losses) but I think, overall, we’re seeing some improvement,” Jeff Fisher said. “Our run game is coming. The last three weeks it’s been 200 (yards) and 160 and 140 against good defenses, and so I think that gives you a chance. And we saw some improvement out of our defense last week.”
“We’re kind of on the down end. Every team wants to be 10-0 at this point in the season,” Michael Brockers said. “I feel like we’re on the downside of this hill and we’re getting over this hump to where we want to be.”
There’s been plenty of ups and downs this season but the Rams most recent memory is dominating a very good Colts team on their turf this past Sunday. Can that make a difference heading into a bye week?
“Absolutely,” Jake Long said. “We’ve been doing some better things each week and we put it all together last week (against the Colts) and got a win and now we can build off that and take that into the rest of the season.”
There is still 10 games to go, with Chicago coming up next in the Edward Jones Dome in a couple weeks, and Rams players still seem to think they have a chance to make a run at the postseason. They have to believe that anyway.
Or there’s no sense even playing the games.
