NEW YORK (AP) Comments on the St. Louis Rams by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
ST. LOUIS RAMS (18)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 20) - If they register huge upset at Seattle, they'll finish undefeated in tough division.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 16) - Finishing about .500 would be a terrific first season for Jeff Fisher.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 18)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 21) - I just knew we'd see improvement with this team especially late in the season.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 19) - A ton of progress from a Rams team that won just two games last season. Still a ways to go, but a promising future nevertheless thanks to Jeff Fisher.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 17) - Jeff Fisher has won as more games in his first season with St. Louis than he did in his final season at Tennessee. Obviously, a change of scenery was welcome.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 17) - Now I know what those ads mean when they talk about "Ram Tough."
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 18) - As the NFL's youngest team, the Rams should feel very good about themselves.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 17) - Jeff Fisher has done a solid job turning things around at the Rams. They could finish with a winning record and that is saying something after last year.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 18)
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 16) - The Rams (7-7-1) are out of the playoff race, but there is something to play for Sunday in Seattle - the franchise's first winning season since 2003.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 15) - The good news is they are scoring touchdowns on passes. The bad news is it's usually cornerback Janoris Jenkins doing the scoring.
