The St. Louis Rams are watching two of their divisional opponents, the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks, square off in the NFC Championship game. Another team in their division got to double wins finishing third in the division but failed to make the playoffs. Needless to say, the Rams play in arguably the toughest division in the league. Despite all that, quarterback Sam Bradford thinks they’re about to turn a corner.
“I think we’re close,” Bradford said, via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “Like I said earlier, I think it’s a matter of us being more consistent and playing to our fullest potential each week, and not having those drops where we don’t perform that way some weeks. But you look at some of our wins this year, some of the teams that we beat. Beat New Orleans who was a playoff team. Beat Indy who was a playoff team.
“So it’s not far off. I think everyone saw that we have the talent to compete and to play with anyone. It’s just a matter of us just finishing a few more games. I don’t know how we do that, but we’ll look at that in the offseason and figure out what we need to do. I think we’re right there.
Still, getting out of that division will be tough, 10 wins wasn’t enough to help Arizona.
