    Game 16: Rams Report Card - PD

    Game 16: Rams Report Card
    Post-Dispatch Sports Staff
    Monday, Jan. 03 2005

    Quarterback: A
    In a crucial game, Marc Bulger delivered one of the more prolific passing days
    in franchise history.

    Running backs: C-
    As each week goes by, it's looking more and more like Steven Jackson's
    backfield.

    Receivers: A-
    They absorbed some shots but kept producing. The only blemish was Isaac Bruce's
    lost fumble.

    Offensive line: C+
    Blaine Saipaia struggled against Shaun Ellis (3 sacks), but those were the only
    sacks allowed.

    Defensive line: B-
    They frequently got caught in the running game, but it's hard to argue with 6
    sacks.

    Linebackers: C
    No big blunders, but not much to get excited about either. Decent job in
    coverage.

    Secondary: B
    Adam Archuleta dropped a potential interception that would have ended the game
    in regulation; The unit didn't allow a completion longer than 17 yards.

    Special teams: D
    Kickoff coverage was absolutely pathetic. The work of Jeff Wilkins, Kevin
    Stemke and Avion Cason avoids "F."

    Coaching: A
    Mike Martz weathered a storm of controversy and brush fires to earn his fourth
    playoff berth in five years as head coach.

    Defensive line: B-
    Come on PD. This D line just can't catch a break. They spend more time in the backfield in this game than they have in weeks 1-16 combined and the PD gives them a "B-". Well, not that my vote matters, but they got an "A" in my book.
