    You're right that the regular season will be the true test of both Bradford and Schottenheimer. I'm confident it will work out.
    Maybe, but I have a hard time putting much importance on that Ravens game, where it appeared very much that the Rams prepared for that game and played their starters in order to build some momentum while the Ravens played their backups and just wanted to get out of town.

    Yes, and Steven Jackson and Danny Amendola were injured in the first game, Lance Kendricks forgot how to catch the ball, and the O line turned to Swiss cheese. Let's hope for better fortune this year.

    The importance of the Ravens game, was execution and adjustments. Both worked to perfection. And as far as starters against backups, the Rams were working with a makeshift line without Dahl, and a guy who got cut, as well as no Kendricks at TE. The bottom line, Schottenheimer made the right calls to get things back on track and clicking. That's important going into the regular season.

    If it was all about building some momentum, why would we cut the starting guard, the TE that made a nice TD catch and the QB that played most of the second half. The Ravens game was like the rest of the practice games, evaluate the players, nothing more nothing less.
