I think if he had a developed deep threat, like Austin showed he could be, he'd trust the deep ball a little more. Givens/Amendola burned him a bit.
A friend of mine is a big Rams fan out in Missouri and he's always claimed he's had trust issues with em but IDK about that.
His contract is the big problem. If they were to cut him this season, they save a huge cap hit. To me he has a chance to be a fine NFL player, but his ceiling is Matt Schaub/Alex Smith (at their best) range. And his floor could be far, far lower.
It's tough because you're right that he hasn't had great weapons. More importantly he's had some terrible coordinators- McDaniels, Brian Schottenheimer... That said, he's still so wildly inconsistent for someone who's been in the league this long. And he's not a great athlete or a great decision-maker.
