Could you guys see a possible 3 back rotation? I just see Stacy being the every down back, but Richardson is such a nice change of pace back, and although I don't see Pead being a feature back yet, I still think he has the most talent of the 3. It just needs to come out.

I think they will all see the ball plenty in preseason. Stacy will see his fair share but I think they start the guy that plays the best in preseason.

I know everyone is Excited about the new toys we have but don't be surprised if things start out slow, as the maturity level starts to kick in, but when if dose beware NFL coaches maybe by the 7 or 8th week but I'm hoping sooner than later.

This is my fear. We have a lot of talent no doubt, but at the same time we have a lot of YOUNG talent. I really hope it doesn't take long to get the ball rolling. I really hope we can punch the ball in this year and put some points up on the board.

The defense has a lot of good veteran leadership, but the offense...not so much. Although the two oldest players on the team (Dahl and Wells) are on O-line, the rest are extremely young, especially at the skill positions. With Steven gone, I want to know who's going to step up and be the leader. Will it be Bradford?

It has to be Sam.

Just has to.

Yeah, Sam has gotta stand up. It will really help having Jake Long on offence now though.

Maybe Bradford already stepped up. Maybe that's why they felt safe letting SJ go.

Those are all reasonable expectations, although the 1800 total yards rushing seemed low. Until I realized that there is still an allowance for Tavon's rushing yards. The only way that Tavon doesn't top 1200 total yards is if he can't pick up the playbook. I'm thinking:

Rushing-24 carries, 139 yards, 1 TD

Receiving-61 catches, 900 yards, 4 TD

Returning-787 yards, 1 TD

That's some pretty serious production for a rookie, perhaps overly optimistic.

Here is my real prediction: The Rams will rank higher in points per game than yards per game. I don't feel like researching it, but I would bet that it has been awhile since that was the case. I would bet a significant sum on this being the case, because of our opportunistic defense, and also because we will have a legitimate return game for the first time since 2000.

We only ran for like 1700 and something yards last year so I felt somewhere between 1800 and 1900 was an optimistic expectation but still fairly reasonable.

I'm expecting much more than 3800 yards. He threw for 3700 last year with inferior surroundings.
