Jeremiah: The Magnificent Seven
Daniel Jeremiah lists the seven most dominant players in the league today, with one caveat: No QBs allowed! **More ...**
"We've got two young ends," Snead told Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in reference to Chris Long and Robert Quinn. "We've added [Kendall] Langford. We've got Darell Scott coming back. Bam! You throw in Brockers, and all of a sudden that unit gets strong. Now the DL becomes a dominant unit."
It's not a bad point. At this time a year ago, we were talking about the Rams pass rush as one of the most promising groups in football. They did a great job getting to the quarterback in 2010 and there are pieces in place for a dangerous unit. The Rams secondary has gone an even more dramatic transformation with the addition of top-shelf cornerback Cortland Finnegan and second round pick Janoris Jenkins.
"That's not a bad pairing -- good defensive line and a good secondary," Snead said. "That usually means the quarterback's got to get things out fast, and you've got tight coverage."
