The Rams' offense goes through Steven Jackson. The Rams' offense is Steven Jackson.
  • Exhibit A: Samkon Gado is the No. 2 running back for now.
  • Exhibit B: The Rams' current wide receivers have combined for three six touchdown receptions.
  • Exhibit C: The Rams' current wide receivers combined to start 13 games last season, 12 by Donnie Avery.
  • Exhibit D: Quarterback Marc Bulger is coming off two rough seasons and a broken finger.

Avery is an ascending young player. Fellow receiver Laurent Robinson has exceeded expectations after a disappointing start to his career in Atlanta. Tight end Randy McMichael is back from a broken leg. Beyond those counterpoints, it's tough mustering any traction when attempting to paint the Rams' offense as multidimensional.

The Rams will presumably consider all options -- waiver claims, trades, you name it -- in attempting to add offensive firepower.
