    So watching what the Rams did to Wilson and the Seahawks had me thinking we better be ready for lots o blitzes because they really did a number on that Seattle Oline. The DBs also played very well given what Seattle did to us.

    Has me a bit less confident that the Rams are a win in the bag....

    Short rest for the Rams, plus Fisher further proved that he LOVES field goals. He was probably petrified of scoring a TD late to win the game.

    "oh man i wish we could kick a FG to tie" was probably what he was thinking.

    I know we lost to Seattle but I like that team a lot - except for that goofball WR (tate? i think).

    Their DEs are so good. We need a great game from Roos/Stewart and I expect to see alot of Delaine Walker/Shonn Greene helping in pass protection. Give Locker time and that secondary will crumble. Jenkins is good, but he takes risks (see Tate play). Finnegan has been awful this year. I can't even name a safety on their team.

    Not to mention, that offense is horrible. Clemens isn't bad, but he's not going to win you a game - he's an average game manager, at best. Zac Stacey had an impressive game. Their WR/TEs are still subpar. I'll be surprised if they score 20 pts on us.

    Rams are coming off short rest, we're coming off a bye. Even though historically it seems like we always come back rusty, hopefully with additional vets on the team that doesn't happen this year. Chip the DEs, Roos/Stewart need a great game, give Locker time, and slow Zac Stacey... do that and we win by 20.

    The seahawks O line was so bad last night that IDK what to make of the rams D. Anyone here could have made it to wilson the way that line was playing and I know they are injured but I do not give them a pass. I think we will take care of the rams and come out firing on all cylinders. Munch's job could be on the line if we do lose this game so I expect him to coach all out to win this one!

    I would say run it right at them, but we can't do that either...

    But we used the 10th pick on a guard, paid another guard $60 mil, and signed a power back in free agency? :brow:

    The way STL played defense last night is how I wish we played defense all the time. Im a huge advocate of the blitz. If it were up to me wed blitz 90% of the time.

    Then you'd make a thread about it afterwards...

    Will we finally be able to utilize Greene against the rams? I know he played a little last game, but didn't produce much since he just came off of an injury. I hope he's nearly 100%.
