Danario Alexander Key For Rams Division Title Hopes

When things have gone well for rookie wide receiver Danario Alexander, they've gone well for the St. Louis Rams this season too. 

In games in which Alexander has had 2 receptions or more, the Rams are 4-0 this season. 

All the reason for head coach Steve Spagnuolo to make sure Alexander is on the field as much as possible against the Seattle Seahawks in a show down for the NFC West title and a spot in the NFL playoffs. 

While Alexander has unexpectedly contributed in big ways for the Rams, 2010 was not all rosy and perfect for the 6 foot 5 inch wide receiver out of the University of Missouri.

Alexander injured his knee severely just prior to the NFL combine in the spring.  The injury was a large reason why the talented wide receiver, who led the nation in receiving yards in 2009, went undrafted and wasn't even picked up as an undrafted free-agent until two weeks into training camp by the Rams.

Despite these difficulties and obstacles, Alexander has overcome everything that has been thrown in front of him. 

Eddie Bauer Holiday GiftsHe has become rookie quarterback and likely NFL Rookie of the Year Sam Bradford's best and favorite deep threat and gives the Rams offense space in the running game and short passing attack. 

If the Rams are going to accomplish the unthinkable and make the playoffs just one year after going 1-15, they will need Alexander to be on the field.

If the Rams are going to march up to the Pacific Northwest and defeat the Seattle Seahawks on their home field for a chance to play in the playoffs, Alexander will be a factor. 

Danario will start 2011 better than he started 2010.  He's overcome to much not too.

  1. Danario got 2 catches, but Rams still lost. 4-1 now... And Rams will be looking for a wideout in the draft.
