I think the Rams have more talent than Seattle overall, problem is Goff. I calculated it the other day and he's either taken away (turnover in scoring range) or gifted (turnover for TD or in scoring range for the opponent) to a point differential of over 70. Our defense has allowed 4.6 yards per play this year which is near LOB level good - but thanks to Goff the scoring defense doesn't look nearly as good.
He torched Seattle once and he played like $h!t once. My guess is McVay will use this opportunity to make Seattle prep for both QBs since their styles are so different.
We'll have Whitworth back (I think) which will help. Expecting the Rams to win whoever the QB is.
Wolford has no experience thats a big shoes to fill in a playoff game ... If the Seahawks can get to him they are going to shake him up and he will make mistakes... they Hawks D played very well against Murray...
How good can Goff be with a broken Hand?
I think The Rams have to score over 27 points to beat the Hawks... You think that's possible?
We've held Seattle to 13 points in both meetings until late in the 4th quarter - first game they got a FG in a prevent d situation, 2nd game a game clinching TD drive. Gave up 20 and 16 total.
I think the defense will show up and Rams just need to score 17 points to win.
But if Goff plays, he can always Goff it. He's due for a bounce back game though.
I guess there is sense to be made from what you are saying only the seahawks, last I checked were in the top 3 scoring in the 4th quarter and after last game they are probably number 1... did you watch the Seahawks Niner game when the Hawks just destroyed the Niner D with 3 TDS in the 4th? That's the Hawks thing is to win it in the 4th...
to beat the Hawks the Rams are going to have to have a monster game on the ground and I just don't see it happening... I could be wrong but I just don't see it ... the last game the Rams had that one run for 23 yards with the exception to that they were held to 85 yards... Now it might be a different story with Ayers (spelling?) coming back if he is back... and if J reed is out and Jamal adams that might be an issue for the Hawks but I agree to disagree they are going to have to score more than 20 to win...
I'd expect nothing less from a Rams and Seahawks fan.
My logic all hinges on things stopping going wrong - by yards the Rams had a better offense and defense than Seattle.
If you do nothing else but reduce Goff's horrific turnovers by just two, were 12-4 and NFCW champs - while any team can change a play or two and do this, I'm pointing it out because with a league average QB were probably a 12 win team, and Goff was arguably one if the worst QBs this year because of those turnovers.
From my perspective, at some point McVays message about ball security will get through and we will have a turnover free game. Or at least that's my only hope.
From your perspective, how will the Rams have a turnover free game when they've turned the ball over in every game this season? Totally get it.
