The St. Louis Rams are in the midst of the worst five-year winning percentage in NFL history. However, the fans of St. Louis have held up remarkably well.  

The Rams have not had a blackout in two seasons.  

Amidst a two-win season in St. Louis, it's remarkable that TV ratings continue to be very strong. Fan forums and chat rooms are active and passionate. And followers are eagerly anticipating an active and productive offseason both on and off the field.  

Meanwhile, by comparison, the 8-6 playoff contending Cincinnati Bengals continue to be blacked out week after week (six of seven games this year).

Perennial playoff contender San Diego has been blacked out several times.  

Buffalo has suffered multiple blackouts and didn't even come close to being televised this week even with Tim Tebow coming to town. Last week, the Denver and New England game posted the highest national TV ratings of the season and Tebow is a big-ticket item around the league.

Other cities like Cleveland and Tampa Bay have also suffered blackouts. In addition, still others like Miami have avoided blackouts by purchasing their own tickets and/or additional alternative means.  

Yet, none of those teams have come remotely close to enduring what Rams fans have dealt with in the last seven seasons. During that time, the Rams have yet to post a single winning record. 

However, hope prevails at this time of the year. 

Christmas is upon us and Santa is loading up the sleigh. A new year is just around the corner. And the 2012 NFL draft and free agency is but a few short months away.  

So, what would be three nice stocking stuffers for St. Louis fans?  

I can't answer for everyone, but these three gifts would make throngs of Rams fans ready to grab a pen and pad and send a grateful thank you letter addressed to the North Pole for Santa Claus.
