    Re: Defense

    Seems like there are a lot of other teams that are having more success with this new Vanilla D.

    Maybe our guys are just slow to pick it up

    Well they better grasp it really quick; otherwise, many of them will be flipping burgers for McDonalds rather playing professional football. Two games into preseason and two blown opportunities to make the team is how I see it. And the final roster cut is insight not to mention the Rams can pickup other players from around the NFL who are on waivers. If I was J. Fisher, I'd post the names who are NOT likely to make the team then those who likely are--might motivate a few players seeing "the handwriting on the wall"

    What get's me with the Vanilla D excuse is the fact that you still have to tackle. This is the worst tackling I've seen in a while. Rest assured Fisher will get it under control but man c'mon. I hope that the joke is on us, and the Rams are putting on a show, acting like they're horrible at tackling

    It was an Oscar worthy performance.

    I believe we were 2-2 last year. But we were also horrid in our first game against Andrew Luck. The point is we will hopefully do better in our final 2 games even though the last one is almost a walk-thru.

    As for the other posts about our new DC; I saw a presser with him last week and I didn't get an overwhelming sense of command from Walton. I know he's executing Jeff's defense but I hope he's a good teacher as we have so much youth at OLB and secondary. Brockers has a great position coach, so no worries there.

    Let's hope we put on a good show next week as we're on network TV vs Peyton.

    Go Rams!

    Our D-line is solid AND deep I believe. We have to work on improvement in the secondary and adding more LB depth.
