Early Rosy Rams Predictions

The Rams early season predictions are out from both Football Outsiders and over at the First Down blog.  Their season predictions have one thing in common: the Rams.  Yes, that’s right, our Rams.

Quoth the First Down:

but isn’t a Rams playoff prediction a little … ridiculous? Yet there it is, on Page 78 of the Football Outsiders Almanac: the Rams have a 48 percent chance of winning nine or more games, giving them almost even odds of becoming this year’s “miracle” team.

Be still my beating heart!  It is one thing for Peter King or Terry Bradshaw to predict the Rams making a playoff run as their pre-season picks.  But, the Football Outsiders guys actually have a track record of being right.  However, they are not ALWAYS right, nothing is.  So, take this nugget with an appropriate grain of salt.

The Rams have been below average in both fumble recovery and red zone rushing in 2008, and those stats should have a strong regression to the mean and show big dividends on the scoreboard.
