101ESPN St. Louis audio: Miklasz Show

EARTH CITY, Mo. -- A year ago, the St. Louis Rams were a popular pick to win the NFC West. They finished last.

This year, the Rams are a consensus or near-consensus choice to finish last in the division. Is another surprise in store? They'll have to fare better than the 2011 team on the injury front, for starters.

Bernie Miklasz and I discussed the Rams' prospects during our latest Tuesday conversation. The station has posted the audio, which is already drawing universal acclaim from listeners. Well, from this listener, at least.

We covered Sam Bradford and what sets apart new coach Jeff Fisher from his predecessor.

I'll be wrapping up my visit to Rams camp and be heading to Canton, Ohio, for Hall of Fame festivities later in the week, punctuated by the Arizona Cardinals' exhibition opener Sunday. The Rams have a special-teams session Wednesday at 10:10 a.m. local time (11:10 a.m. ET).
