Rams Look to Rebound
with a Healthy Pace
Last year the St. Louis Rams were a popular pick to make the
playoffs. Steven Jackson was talking about 2500 yards from scrimmage and the
fans were excited for the season. Early season ending injuries to offensive linemen,
including Orlando Pace, decimated the team.
Pace-less Rams Lacked
injuries across the board hurt the team, but Pace’s loss was the most
noticeable. Pace is an excellent pass protector and a great run blocker. With
Orlando Marc Bulger did not have time in the pocket and Steven Jackson’s
production dropped off. The once potent offense suddenly had trouble scoring.
When the Rams lost
Orlando They Lost More Than a Player
Orlando is not just a great player for the
Rams, he is veteran leader. His healthy return is a good sign for the team, it
should lead to a healthier offense and more wins this year. Rams fans should
expect a better season with Pace back at LT.
