Bernie Miklasz and I cut right to the bottom line when discussing the St. Louis Rams during our weekly conversation Tuesday.
How should the organization proceed following this season? It's tough finding positive signs for the future sufficient enough to justify staying the course, in my view. But there could be reasons to do so, and we discussed those as well.
The Rams have won 10 games over the past three seasons. During that time, they are 1-9 when tied or trailing by no more than seven points after three quarters. They are 4-6 when tied or leading by seven or fewer points after three quarters. They are 0-3 in overtime games and have been outscored 43-13 after the third quarters of those three games.
Bernie and I covered all four NFC West teams, providing progress reports through 12 games. They have made available the audio.
