NFC West: St. Louis (3-5)

Pleasant: If the rest of the NFL knew what a weapon he would become, there’s no way that kicker Greg Zuerlein would have lasted until the sixth round of April’s draft. Zuerlein has exhibited the kind of leg strength that makes him a strong candidate to ultimately break the NFL-long field-goal record of 63 yards.

Unpleasant: The Rams spent a second-round pick on Isaiah Pead and seventh-rounder on Daryl Richardson. In retrospect, the roles of both running backs should have been reversed. Richardson is cementing himself as the heir apparent to Steven Jackson, while Pead has only earned four carries. Pead must step up his game if the Rams are going to bid adieu to Jackson in 2013. - Alex Marvez (AP Photo/Matt Dunham)
