The St. Louis Rams did not have an awful season in 2014, but a 6-10 record isn’t what they were hoping for. It was a season filled with close losses, wins over big-time teams, and yet another season-ending injury to quarterback Sam Bradford. The Rams have a lot to think about and some good things going forward so 2014 proved a lot.
