Why can't Wade figure out a way to cover Tight Ends? Way too often they get wide open? Imagine when we play against Kelce. This week the Packers have Graham who though not in his prime figures to get open often.

Fix it, Wade!

Checked the stats: Graham is Rodgers' #2 target. They have an elite WR and a productive TE. Aaron Donald time! Time to pressure, hit, and sack the gimpy #12.

Suh has been quiet of late.

No he is now just monitoring and reporting anyone who is mean to him.

I’m going back to just not responding to him directly anything he posts. Just easier.

Can you imagine if Graham had 8 catches for 100+ yards and a TD...and the Rams won 42-20?? That would be AWFUL!!

Awful. But for some it's easier to complain than try to understand what our DC is trying to accomplish against particular offenses.

7-0 still correct?

I guess I interpret "killing a defense" a little bit different. In my mind, a QB passing for 180 yards and the TE getting 90 yards and a TD is not "killing the defense". You know what does kill a defense? 360 yards passing, with two wrs going for 100+ each and 4 tds.

Many posters worry about a preceived weakness on the Rams. One week it is Run D, another it is DE, another is FS play and another thing at CB. Although there is truth in all of them to a degree the Rans are 7-0 and power ranked first.

Look other teams have injuries and LARGER weeknesses and more of them than the Rams. We have one of the two best Offenses in the NFL. We have a top 8 Defense even with no DE contribution and Talib out. We have the best STs in the NFL. We usually play from being ahead which limits what other teams do and forces them later in the game to be one dimensional. So honestly if I was an opposing team I would fear the Rams because we are such a complete team.

As for the TE situation we will deal with it my suggestion is to double Graham take him out
of the game or put a DB on him.

You have to play with what you got. With that said we are the 4th rated D in regards to points allowed - I think the concern over the D is a little overblown...

I expect us to draft a DE and LB in rounds 1 and 3 next year and or target them in FA...


Judge our new coach in his third year. After all our last coach was to game strategy what Yoko Ono was to the Beatles...

You don't think Suh had an impact on Donalds big SF game?

Well put. The next few games vs some of the leagues other elite teams couldn't come at a better time.
A 2-2 split gets us to 9-2 going into the bye week. God forbid they were to actually lose a couple.
Even the timing of the bye is advantageous. It's all going on for us right now.
The next couple weeks will tell us more.

I agree, this stretch comes at a good time for us.....glad we didn't start with it, tho.....this first seven games have given us a better chance to gel, since the starters don't play in preseason....last week was a good example, I think our defensive front is starting to click, it's also given Wade some time to evaluate the LB situation, all while we're winning games....the next four games will be interesting to watch it all come together, fingers crossed.
