(KSDK Sports) -- They were the under-reported, underappreciated story of the season. They have some work to do, with RB Steven Jackson's future at the top of the list. But they have some promising young players - CB Janoris Jenkins and WR Chris Givens, for instance.
But the St. Louis Rams have everything going from them.
Two number one draft choices coming up in the 2013 NFL Draft. A Super Bowl caliber coach. An emerging young team and this weekend, when they watch the playoffs they may even feel better about their 7-8-1 team.
Although the loss to Seattle in the final weekend, ruined their shot at a winning record, they did beat the advancing Seahawks 19-13 earlier in the season, and nobody is hotter in the NFL than Seattle right now.
And the Rams also had success against the team the Seahawks will be playing, the Washington Redskins.
The Rams are close. Very close and they know with losing just one game in their division, they did indeed have a solid year from which to grow.
