The recently shot photos from inside the San Francisco 49ers' new stadium got me thinking about another NFC West team with stadium ambitions. The St. Louis Rams have to hope they're snapping similar shots at some point in the not-too-distant future.
Bernie Miklasz and I touched upon the Rams' stadium situation Tuesday in light of Jason Cole's piece dismissing as unworkable the leading efforts to build a stadium in Los Angeles.
As Rams fans know, Los Angeles remains a perceived threat to lure the Rams away from St. Louis once the team's lease with the Edward Jones Dome goes year-to-year in 2015. Cole's report highlights the gap between the perceived and actual threat, at least the way things stand at present.
There was much more for Bernie and I to discuss during our latest conversation on 101ESPN St. Louis.
Potential free-agent fates for Steven Jackson and Danny Amendola were among the subjects we covered. We kicked off the discussion by following up my Sunday piece from the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference focusing on the Rams' and 49ers' outlooks.
