1. OL. Just awful. 💩
2. Stafford. Just awful. 💩
3. McVays play calling. Just awful 💩

When the QB gives the other team 14 points, that’s near impossible to overcome.

Defense was fine although Titans missing Henry was huge.

Rams Oline was really bad. Most of the pressure was up the middle or stunts and that’s on Brian Allen to prevent that and he stunk tonight.

Rams empty backfield garbage can work against the dregs of the NFL. Not good physical defenses.

And so many penalties! (That wasn’t roughing on Donald though!)

The offense adjusted like a quarter and a half too late.

They just looked weak, kind of like they have against SF. They better not look like this next Monday night.

{1} Overconfidence & arrogance
{2} Three easy opponents before this contest
{3} Pathetic offensive leadership from head coach & QB

That penalty on Ramsey after his interception set part of the tone for the game. The receiver swung Ramsey into the ground after they were very much out of bounds. Ramsey reacted, but the Tenn receiver should have been called out on that. The Rams were outmuscled tonight, but the officiating made it even tougher to find a rhythm.

Just have to regroup, come out focused against the 9ers, Stafford needs to right himself (and he will) and after a solid victory in S.F. come back more focused after the bye...chicken littles cluck away...

I don't think it was Allen so much as it was Edwards that was just dominated

We could not just drop back and pass against this team… yet that is exactly what we did the whole first half…

Looking at our run-in, it now looks rather brutal if you ask me.
Seeing what the Vikings did against Baltimore changes things. They're now a serious threat.

I think I had us losing 4 games over the season before it began, those being ARZ, TEN, GB & BAL.

Looking at what we have remaining and how 2nd rate we looked, for the most part yesterday, I fear we could be going 11-6 now. So add MIN & the 2nd ARZ game to that list.

You got that part wrong. Our defense was fine on first and second down. Then on third down they seemed to always allow the Titans to convert. There is nothing fine about that. Go watch the game again.

Dfense looked ok- especially second half. It's a lot to ask when you have to allow ZERO points after giving them 2 touchdown spot. This was a loss in the trenches of the OL, QB mistakes(turnovers and brutal ones at that), and lack of adjusting in 1st half. This would be anyones game if we don't spot them 2 TDs.

Looks like other teams has gotten the game plan to beat us.
Take away the short stuff, runs stunts on the OL or just plain beat the OL with brute strength.

Sure seems that way. They owned us at the line… therefore, they got in Staffords head, which led to him throwing completely garbage balls. You give any team 14 points, it’s hard to overcome that…. ESPECIALLY when we can’t score a TD ourselves.

This morning I’m still sort of shocked at our performance last ngt. We just didn’t come to play. No passion, no proper executing.

Let’s throw this game in the trash. We have the talent, we are a solid team. I’m hoping last ngt was just an anomaly.

#1 agree 100%………
#2 yes Stafford made some poor decisions but they were made because of #1……….
#3 because of #1………..

OL for the first time revisited 2019. Just a horrible performance. I’m willing to give them a mulligan but there cannot be a repeat. Niner game is going to be a big time test for them.

Allen was complete garbage in that game and so was Hav.....shoot the entire OL played like crap. 1 game have to move on but this was alarming

They'll straighten it out. And McVay will call games differently like he did in 2nd Half last night. Rams were reading their press clippings all week while Tennessee came in determined to show the Country on National television they could win without Henry.

Losses are always bad, but an OUT OF. CONFERENCE loss like this is pretty painless, relatively speaking.

Win next week and we're OK.

Agree the entire OL was. Whit, Edwards, n Corbettt were also just garbage……….

I would have replaced someone with Boom at the start of 3rd just to send a message………..

The main reason we lost is that Stafford had the misfortune on his desperate throwaway from his End Zone of having it picked off. If that ball is incomplete we probably win. If that play is a SAFETY we probably win. We would still be leading and Titans werent moving the ball against our D until they seized momentum with the 2 pick-6s. In general, a giant yawn to last nights loss in the big picture.

2. Stafford couldn't find open guys against cover 4
3. McVay play calling by not running it down their throats when they were daring us to .

It was glaring I agree. Glaring also that the 2 guards were physically manhandled also. Glaring also that a veteran RT playing as well as he has played can look so bad like he did last night.

Over. It can’t be repeated…………

Not every team has the personnel to pull that off. Sure more teams may try to run cover four and take their chances but I believe we will move the pocket, more play action and run against teams that try in the future.
