St. Louis Rams 2010 NFL Predictions & 2011 Super Bowl Predictions: How do you follow-up a horrid 1-15 regular NFL predictions season? By landing the first overall pick in the NFL draft, of course, and asking that player to your team out of oblivion. That is exactly what the St. Louis are asking of Sam Bradford, quarterback out of Oklahoma. Not many players coming out of college will feel as much pressure as the ex-Sooner but, on a 1-win team, the pressure is not to deliver NFL bettors winning NFL predictions but to survive at the pro level in the NFL.
The Rams, while not bereft of impact offensive players, do not have much to support Bradford. Vegas odds makers have made their NFL predictions picked them as a 150-1 NFL odds underdog to reach the 2011 Super Bowl predictions matchup as further evidence as how far they have to go. The young QB can lead on workhorse running back Steven Jackson. Jackson is an elite talent, rushing for more than 1,400 yards on a bad team in 2009. Donnie Avery had some shining moments but they were too few. The Rams are hoping third-year pro Keenan Burton or rookie Mardy Gilyard can provide some punch this NFL predictions season. Last year’s first round pick Jason Smith anchors an average line.
The defense was a train wreck last during the 2010 NFL predictions season, finishing dead last in points allowed, and that fact must irk head coach Steve Spagnuolo, once the defensive coordinator of the NY Giants. Spagnuolo can build around second-year pro James Lauinaitis at middle linebacker and 2008 high draft pick Chris Long at defensive end. The secondary was a disappointing unit in 2009 with no real impact players added.
Bradford will take his licks during the 2010 NFL predictions season but other teams have followed this formula and found success so the future is not as dire as the present. The Rams have a chance to equal the Lions recent two-year record of 2-30. If that happens, look for another high draft pick to arrive in 2011 to help Bradford and the boys resurrect this once proud franchise.
