The St Louis Rams have to make the right choice or they'll bust

It has been a difficult start to the season for the St Louis Rams who are currently 0-1 after losing 34-6 to the Minnesota Vikings in week one.

They didn't have a great opening game and after only managing to hit two field goals during the Minnesota game, its clear their offense needs some work.

They were one of the lowest scorers in week one and against a Minnesota team who struggled last season, they know they will have to do better when they come up against bigger teams this year.

Perhaps worse for the Rams is their situation at Quarterback following the knee surgery to long time starter Sam Bradford.

Their options are severely limited at the position with Bradford out and then the subsequent injury to Shaun Hill who is expected to miss this weekend s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

That leaves the Rams with the choice of either Austin Davis or Case Keenum who is newly acquired and may not be up to speed with the Rams play-book.

Many people are questioning what they will do but one theory is that they may try to trade in a new Quarterback for the remainder of the season.

Some names being tossed around include Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez and Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins.

If the Rams are looking to trade for either of those guys, it won't come easily as they will have to forfeit a high draft pick next year and wouldn't be able to keep them on a permanent deal.

So who would be better? Cousins or Sanchez?

Everyone has an opinion and in mine, Cousins is the obvious choice, he's young and will perhaps be more eager to have a team at his control.

Sanchez brings experience with him but is he the man St Louis would want to help them through the season?

I personally think Cousins deserves better than a second string role at a franchise and the chance to start for a season in St Louis could be the stepping stone he needs to entice other franchises in to trading for him next year.

I would personally like to see what Cousins can do but the odds on the Rams being willing to trade for a season for him seems unlikely so it will be interesting to see what happens with the QB situation in St Louis.
