After a quarter of a season the Rams just manage to post a 1-3 record with the last two games losing in a blow out.
As of now the Rams are in recovery mode for 10 days to fix their problematic offense and defense and here are some of the suggestions that MIGHT help
Hire Mike Martz: One of the most successful offensive coordinators in the Rams history is Mike Martz and it won't hurt to hire him as a consultant for now. With the personnel the Rams have I'm sure coach Martz would love to create some plays off of them.
Demote Tim Walton to DB Coach and promote Chuck Cecil as DC: The Rams have a bevy of experienced Defensive Coordinators in the current coaching and I'm scratching my head why up to know they promote any of them, in this case Chuck Cecil gets my vote to be promoted as DC and Tim Walton taking his place as secondary coach.
These are only my personal opinion but if the Rams wants to win their remaining games these suggestions are by far the best moves they can do.

Score early and fast:
For the last three games, the Rams have not scored in the first quarter and the win against Arizona was come from behind victory. If the Rams can score early and fast that would help them control the clock more in the later part of the game.
Establish the running game:
Regardless of not having an establish/talented runningback in the roster, the Rams should always establish the running game to keep it balanced. If they are to run a "running back by committee" approach then it's high time they do so by giving Daryl Richardson, Isaiah Pead and Zac Stacy some reps. That way they can exploit mismatches. They can even include Tavon Austin on this if needed.
Offensive line should step up
The offensive line has been good in pass protection but they have problems opening running lanes for the runningbacks. Giving the Richardson and Stacy some good running lanes would help the play action plays.
The Rams have three of the fastest receivers in the roster in Wide receivers Chris Givens, Tavon Austin and Tight End Jared Cook. Sam Bradford should take advantage of his weapons and not always to resort in check down passes.
As always one factor that the Rams lost in the last three games is penalties. If the Rams can plays smart football for 60 minutes the chances of winning are high.

Today the St. Louis Rams signed Max Starks to a one year deal. The signing of Starks shows that the Rodger Saffold will be out for several weeks due to a sprained MCL. Joe Barksdale will start at right tackle vs. the Dallas Cowboys.
