  • The offense has been horrible but with all the resources and money invested in the D they should be way better then they have been.

  • Gave up 10 points. Gave the offense the ball indide the Rams 40 at least twice. Anything else you need?

  • I'd agree this defense hasn't been what I envisioned yet but I think it's going to happen. They are looking a lot better and seem to have cleaned up those errors that caused the massive run plays.

    Let's be honest, you take away the 5-6 big runs given up so far this year and they've been amazing. Just gotta clean up those explosive running plays. In years past we haven't given those up.

  • Right, I think The OP posted this before the game started.

    But yeah the defense played really well today. The refs gotta stop letting Olines get away with holding us, it's like they know this defensive line would just make games boring so they let it happen.

    I hate ref blamers, but yeah, I saw a ton of closelines and holds (really bad, not ticky tack stuff) not called. Ok cause we won, but some aggregious non call on the Rams OL.

  • 10 points allowed to the top scoring team in the NFL. 5 turnovers.

    Enough said. Offense is the problem.

  • I posted it early after the defense gave up 10 and should have been 17 if not for a great play by Earl and a bone headed play by Gurley. I still don't think our D is anywhere close to where it needs to be but no reason to be down on them too. To be honest I feel like the secondary has been amazing but the pass rush just isn't what it needs to be so far. Still really good though.

  • Hats off to the D. Coleman and Griff had a rough day but they are rookies. I was down on the Dline in the 1st half but they settled in during the 2nd. Offense still sucks but great win.

  • Defense was set up to contain Gurley and rush Goff second, they did that in spades, interior D line was lights out and got a lot of push, edge spied Gurley first rushed second from what I saw on most plays, yes there were exceptions to those that want to nit pick, it did open up longer designed pass plays and crossing routes for them however. In a pure Zone we were getting burned early, when we went Man Zone combo we were able to get the bend not break success as frustrating as it was to watch.

  • Gave up 10 points to the previously best offense in the league, in an away game.

    And how did they do it? Stuffed the run, pressured the QB, and forced mistakes. Hell, Thomas even *caught* a ball for a change.

    I have no issues with them.

  • Chris beat me to it. The defensive scheme was to hold Gurley in check and dare Goff to beat us on his own.

    Hopefully we will pay more attention to Kupp next game.

    Or the offense for failing to get a first down on their last two possessions to ice the game. Shoot, even three straight runs on the second to last possession would've given the Rams 40 fewer seconds.

    Not to mention ET's int was caused by Reed pushing his linemen into Goff. Bullrushing the interior has been a weakness of ours in prior seasons but no longer. SR has played amazing since game one and Reed has only improved and is actually becoming a very good DL. This is great to see.

  • Got complacent especially on the 3rd and 2 after Earl pick but thats the best this O has played against the Rams in a long while.

  • Ironic, the Rams DL for the most part manhandled us, yet, it was our DL, who never got much pressure on Goff who stole the game.

  • Our defense tends to be soft on third and long and allows the opponents convert into first downs. I don't have a good feeling whenever our defense faces third and longs.

  • In all fairness, it wasn't all rainbows and unicorn farts. I believe we gave up 7 out of 12 3rd and long plays. Ouch!

    Other than that, I thought they stuffed the run well, and came up with the big plays when needed. Overall, great, but I can't give an A+ to a unit that gives up that many 3rd and longs. Scoring D was excellent, could use some work on the mid game. I mean, that last drive by Goff was a real heart stopper.

    They just held the highest rated offense in the league to 10 points. They created 5 turnovers. What the hell do you expect?

  • From the eye-test, that Rams' OLine looks pretty legit. McVay's scheme, along with Goff and Gurley seem to be getting all the hype, but from the looks of it a lot of the Rams' improvement should be attributed to greatly improved OL play.

  • The D was outstanding today. Bend but don't break-give up some yards fine but do whatever it takes to prevent them from scoring TDs. That's a high quality NFL performance we saw.

    Yes, the way Goff and co drove down the field at the end of the game was disappointing and yes, the Rams would've and perhaps should've won if not for Kupp's drop or the missed FG, but still, the D stepped up in warm weather on the road and figured out ways to slow down that high octane Ram O. No one else has stopped them to any degree excrpt for us.

  • I was frustrated with how well the Rams moved the ball especially on 3rd and long, all game. However we were able to get turnovers when it counted.

    However If the Rams hadn't missed a FG, and then been able to tie it at the end with a FG, and win in OT. Or if Kupp didnt drop that TD pass, the loss would still be on the offense for only getting 16 points off 5 turnovers.

  • Yardage, stats etc. mean squat. It's all about points given up. Bend don't break has worked just fine w/this team over the years.
