Rams preview: Jackson, Holt bring hope to St. Louis
Aug. 26, 2008


The Rams are coming off a disastrous 3-13 season. Only the Dolphins were consistently worse in 2007. St. Louis was supposed to be a sleeper playoff contender in '07, and instead it was a big step backward for both the offense and defense.

The poor play from his team -- although affected significantly by a rash of injuries -- almost cost coach Scott Linehan his job. But in a compromise move in the most compromising of positions, Linehan turned over the offense to someone familiar to the Rams: Al Saunders.

Saunders worked wonders in Kansas City under former Rams coach Dick Vermiel, but his scheme didn't quite work out in Washington. With a big, powerful, quick and versatile back in Steven Jackson, there's hope Saunders can get some Priest Holmes-like results.

Defensively, the one bright spot in the bad season was earning the second overall pick and the chance to draft Virginia defensive end Chris Long, son of Hall of Famer Howie. Still, don't expect two men to make much of a statistical difference -- at least early in their stints in St. Louis.
