Too many Rams fans are already jumping ship. The season just started. The Rams won one game last season. They have made improvements and continue to improve week in and week out.
The loss to the Raiders was difficult to take. The Rams looked poised to get their first win of the Bradford era, but fell apart in the second half.
I've heard too many fans scream at offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. They want the offense to open up. No more check down throws for 2 yard gains they say. Bradford simply doesn't have the protection to thow deep downfield.
The offensive line can't stop a good blitzing team and Bradford's well-known accuracy is starting to suffer the effects of all the hits already put on him this year.
The lack of an actual deep threat also prevents Shurmur from calling deeper pass patterns for Bradford to throw to.
The Rams have some good slot receivers and Clayton is beginning to work well with Bradford, but they aren't there yet.
Steven Jackson has been slowed by a knee injury and he still goes out and performs.
The Rams are a young team. They will win more than one game. Remember, losing close battles is much better then losing blow-outs.
