    Arizona? Running the ball? What the.....

    You can talk about Bulger all you want, to let the Arizona Cardinals run all over the place yesterday was what beat the Rams. The Rams DT's are non-existent even with a healthy Carriker. The OLB play was abysmal yesterday too. The Rams need to contact Suh's people as soon as they can.

    You fail to link that the running game stopped working so amazingly well as soon as Warner left the game. Before that, the Rams were forced into dime coverage since the Cardinals were running out 5 WRs in the spread offense. That is going to lead to running lanes and mismatches. Once the Cardinals moved back to a traditional offense with Leinart, the running game fell apart also.

    They still shouldn't have been able to run the ball like they did. Are you saying we aren't weak at DT?

    we definitely are weak at DT, thats clearly an area requiring an upgrade.

    The thing is, it sort of makes Chris Long's play all the more impressive, since teams are keying off on him a fair bit what with him being the only real decent player on the line.

    Little is good at pass rushing and all but his play as a run defender is poor

    The Rams run defense has been improved for the most part this year, but yesterday was clearly a bad peformance in that area. I'm sure that Spags is going to be very tempted to take one of the two "stud" DTs (Suh, G.McCoy) in the first round.

    Of course our DTs are weak. Just look at the turnover at the position since training camp opened. How do you expect it to not be weak? Plus the Rams have two outside linebackers who are barely backup quality. Lenin will be out of the NFL most likely next season and Vbora is a backup only. He's not starting quality. Think maybe that has an impact also?

    The Rams have lost Carriker, Gary Gibson & Hollis Thomas. That's 3 out of the 4 they planned on going with this season at one point.
