    Arizona @ St. Louis: It's a good thing it will be indoors...

    ....cause this game is gonna look like an Arena game. When you compare us and them, the first thing you notice is the defense.......or lack thereof. We can't stop anybody, they can't stop anybody. In this particular contest, the situation could be even worse for the Cardinals with so many injuries to an already poor defense. But then again, we have Marmie so that sorta evens the field a little.

    On the offense, they can pass the ball.....we can pass the ball. Both teams like to get airborne and seem to need passing like a duck needs water. We/they may leave it for a few plays but rest assured we/they are coming right back to it.

    The difference between us and them is in the running game. Simply put, we're okay at it.......they suck at it. We're getting a little over 100 yards a game at a 4.5 ypc clip. They on the other hand are dead last on the run with 67 yards per game and a 3.0 ypc.

    Question for our offense:
    Will we get the ball in the endzone?
    We'll move it up and down the field at will. Both Bulger and Jackson should see little resistence pushing the play, but can we put it in the endzone. They may see several opportunities to answer that question come Sunday.

    Question for our defense:
    Can the pass rush come ready to execute?
    Even with our horrible D, stopping their run shouldn't, I repeat, s-h-o-u-l-d-n-'-t be a problem. We know Warner is going to pass a lot, and we know he's not exactly mobile. Their line gives up a lot of sacks, so if our line can create pressure, our secondary could look better than they actually are.

    The Rams win, if......
    Little, Hargrove and Green get to Warner. But if trends hold true, we'll be in coverage packages all day with very little blitzing, so they will have to do it on their own.

    The Cards win, if.....
    Shipp and Arrington can move the ball. If the Cards show they aren't one dimensional, a weak Ram D becomes even more diluted.

    i am hoping for a blowout, but this game could be a lot closer than we would like, our d isnt very good and it doesnt matter if you run the ball well, we dont have much of a pass rush either.

    We're at home. Their O-Line is nearly as bad as Houstons. We shut down their running game the first time, and I believe that Boldin is out. If the Rams can just execute in the redzone, I believe that Fitzpatrick and the rest of the backups should get some playing time. If we execute, this game should be over by halftime.

    Actually, just a few hours ago, he was upgraded from questionable to probable.
