    We've scored 54 points so far.

    Last year, we were 0-6 before scoring our 54th point.

    We're also averaging 27 ppg through the first two weeks.

    Offense is schemed to our personal much better this season.McD tried to drive a Honda like a Ferrari,where as Schotty knows what he has and is taking advantage of it.

    39 is absolutely correct. This is simply a case of a coordinator using his personnel to be better degree, and in order to do that, KNOWING his personnel better. Yes, losing Amendola and Jax in the first week hurt a ton, but the offense still did not move as well as it does now, because we didn't have a line that could hold their blocks as long as was needed. Schotty has coached up the line, either through better schemes or better line coaching, and has put our players in a position where they can move the chains. It even got flashy with Amendola catching the long ball!
    I believe!

    Jackson did get hurt on the first play from scrimage last season, a TD run. Amendola got injured in the first game also. This years team is light years better than last year but it's a little early to enshrine Shotty into anything yet.

    Here's hoping the Rams will remain hungry and fierce to keep the scorekeeper busy adding to our side.

    And the defense to help too! Scoring and/or providing the opportunities for the Bradford Bunch.

    What a difference.

    McD certainly did not live up to his billing as an offensive genius. I have no doubt he can run a good offense with the right personnel, but a true genius should be able to tailor his playbook to what he has and still have an effective offense. McD seemed to flat out refuse to admit that the offense had shortcomings, and play to those shortcomings.

    So far Shotty has done a great job. Sanchez on the other hand is doing his usual "look great one game and then be awful the next" so maybe his failings in NY were due more to Sanchez and Rex Ryan than anything else.
