About St. Louis Rams
St. Louis Rams was established in 1936 in Cleveland where it won its first NFL championship in 1945 after which the franchise moved to Los Angeles where few layers it won another championship. The franchise has finally settled in St. Louis in 1995 and four years later it became the only NFL team to win championships in three different cities after clinching a win in Super Bowl XXXIV.
Two years later the team made it to Super Bowl game which they lost to the Patriots and a slow decline has started. The Rams reached playoffs only two more times, the last being in 2004 season.
St. Louis Rams represent NFC West division amongst the Cardinals, 49ers and Seahawks. In 2010 NFC West became a first division whose champion had a losing record with the Seahawks record of 7-9.
The team’s colours are Millennium Blue, New Century Gold and White and Rampage is the team’s official mascot. He is an anthropomorphic ram wearing Rams jersey.
The team’s head coaching suites belong to Jeff Fisher who played for Bears as a defensive back and has earned a Super Bowl ring as a player with them. Fisher has been a head coach since 1994 and joined the Rams in 2012.
The franchise is on the lookout for its quarterback having few veterans on its roster. There are some playmakers in wide receivers corps with Tavon Austin and Kenny Britt worth mentioning.
Austin joined the team in 2013 after being chosen in first round of the draft and earned himself PFWA All-Rookie Team award in 2013 and few NFC Special Teams player of the Week as a return specialist.
Britt joined the franchise in 2014 and provides more of veteran role to the locker room.
Drafted 10th overall in 2015 NFL Draft Todd Gurley showed team’s commitment to establishing ground attack as Gurley showed plenty of speed and talent and became the first NFL rookie to rush for 125 yards or more.
The team shines on defensive side of the ball with many playmakers there. Defensive ends Chris Long and Robert Quinn are very often on opposing team coaches’ minds.
Long was drafted by the Rams in 2008 and since then he played on both sides of defensive line and two seasons straight he led the league in quarterback disruptions (total of sacks, hits and hurries).
Quinn drafted to the team in first round of 2011 draft provided the team with plenty of highlights leading NFC in sacks in 2013, being voted to Pro Bowl twice and ranking in top 50 in the Top 100 NFL Players of the Year last two seasons.
There’s also plenty of other talents on the defence and like for quite few other franchises, it looks like the Rams need a steady quarterback presence to make them regular playoff contenders.
