    Morning Ram-blings: All time D-line?
    By Nick Wagoner

    http://espn.go.com/blog/st-louis-rams/post/_/id/10883/morning-ram-blings-all-time-d-line

    EARTH CITY, Mo. -- Let's face it, the past 36 or so hours have not been fun if you're a fan of the St. Louis Rams.

    The loss of quarterback Sam Bradford probably has you searching for something, anything to lift your spirits. Well, I don't know how much it will help but here's something from Grantland's Bill Barnwell that might at least temporarily put a smile on your face.

    Late last week, Barnwell went through and offered what he believed to be the best units at each position in league history along with a group in today's NFL that Barnwell believes could enter the conversation.

    Now, I know you're probably down to the defensive line and already mad that the Fearsome Foursome wasn't Barnwell's choice as the best defensive line in league history (though he writes it was awfully close) but keep scrolling and you'll find the biggest reason this Rams season isn't a lost cause: the current defensive line.

    From Barnwell's piece:

    Carolina had the best line in the league last year, and the Texans are about to combine J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney in their pass rush, but nobody has horses like this.


    There's been plenty of hype about this group in the preseason and it certainly looks like the real deal. That group was already expected to be great. Now it will be needed more than ever.

    I.C.Y.M.I.

    A roundup of Sunday's Rams stories appearing on ESPN.com. ... We began the day with a look at Michael Sam's big performance in Cleveland. ... Next, we examined offensive tackle Jake Long's rusty return. ... From there, we revisited the three things to watch from Saturday's game. ... With the news that Bradford would miss the season, we discussed the long term future of the position in St. Louis. ... We closed the day with a look at Shaun Hill and the need to add more experience behind him.
