    Dead Horse - Red Zone Offense

    Why is it that when other teams get down in the redzone there offense gets simpler while the Rams get more complicated!!!! Here are the continued reasons, same for 3 years:

    1. No big outside receiver. When was the last time the Rams connected on a fade pattern in the endzone. The Giants killed the Rams on fades to Toomer and Burress.

    2. No TE redzone threat. Ditto with one, see Shockey for reference.

    3. Lack of physical O-Line.

    4. A coach who thinks he has to trick people in the redzone rather than depending on the skills and determination of his players.

    Re: Dead Horse - Red Zone Offense

    You typically don't have big outside receivers in this offense because they're not as fast. Since our offense is predicated on speed, you don't see us going after guys who are 6'5". Indianapolis is the same way - Harrison and Wayne are 6'0" and Stokely is 5'11".

    What we need is a receiving tight end that's tall and can be a red zone threat. We were missing two of our tight ends today, so that's going to play a factor.

    Simple or complicated, the Ram red-zone offense was pretty damn good today. 5 trips into the red zone, 3 touchdowns, 1 field goal and a fumble. To me, this was one of the positives of an overall bad day.

    Good point, Mike. I wouldn't have thought we did that well in the red zone had you not said the numbers.

    Not bad, but not good enough to overcome the turnovers. Our O-line was good in pass protection overall, but really layed down for the running game. It was the difference !!!!!! Changes need to be made. Pace as usual, and Barron were the bright spots. I was impressed by Barrons overall play today. We need not worry about our two tackles, but looks like we need to find a couple of new Guards for our running game to take off.

    One bad play was called, but not sure if that cost the game for us. Curtis fumble at the 30. Missed FG,and that bad play call in side our red zone. Was just too much.

    Agree, the offense was acceptable, in spite of the fact that we couldn’t run.

    You can’t give up 44 points and win. Note, all 44 points were scored by the Giants offense, no special teams scores, and no defensive scores.

    Hang this loss on Marmie and his secondary.
