it's unfair to expect 2nd year and rookie guys to be able to make something out of NOTHING
no holes...no help....they'd at least be average if there was an actual place to run
The run isn't going to get fixed until the line gets better. A lot of our rushing attempts were met in the backfield on Thursday. Adrian Peterson and S-Jax would have struggled to gain yardage under those circumstances.
Regardless of what Fisher said, apparently Pead was in the doghouse for breaking a team rule.
As for Pead, Fisher was asked if he was benched strictly for football issues. Pead has had some off-field issues, and not just the one-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
“Well, he’s had a couple moments, yeah, over the last couple of weeks,” Fisher said, in a possible reference to showing up late for a team meeting or missing a curfew. “But, I didn’t put him down because of that.”
Plus I believe Pead was quoted after the game as saying he has to make better decisions.
I think a more appropriate (albeit longer) headline would be
"Rams will focus on running game, passing game, pass protection, special teams play, defensive line pressure and catching the football"
