The St. Louis Rams now have a ton of young and talented offensive weapons in the likes of TE Jared Cook, WRs Tavon Austin, Brian Quick, Chris Givens and Austin Pettis, and RBs Daryl Richardson and Isaiah Pead surrounding QB Sam Bradford. Bryan Burwell of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch believes that coach Jeff Fisher will take the proverbial training wheels off their offense this season.
"In talking to both Bradford and Cook, they keep trying to tell me that it's really not a new playbook. It's just because of the new personnel they have, they're able to open up pages of this playbook that they never even thought about getting to last year. As Bradford said, there were probably cobwebs on it," Burwell said. "But now with Tavon Austin, Cook and these multi-dimensional running backs that are at his disposal, Bradford is going to these new pages and it ought to be fun ... this should be a far more exciting offense."
