Around the NFC West: 'Inside the Huddle'

Around the NFC West: May 31, 2013

Good morning, NFC West.

We kick off this final day in May with thoughts from ESPN's John Clayton on the St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers.

Clayton covered Tavon Austin and Michael Crabtree in his "Inside the Huddle" segment this week, available in the video above.

The idea that Austin could facilitate a quick-strike offense comes amid perceptions that St. Louis was lacking in quick scoring drives. A look at stats for longer touchdown drives requiring fewer plays than average showed nothing particularly unusual when it came to the Rams. I can take a closer look another time.

The week in the NFC West wraps up Friday with a single organized team activity (OTA) session. The Seattle Seahawks are scheduled to take the field for a practice closed to media.

If you missed our chat Thursday, here's the transcript.
