    Growing Pains

    If nothing else today's game was all about a young talented football team making a lot of mistakes early to put them in a hole against a very talented veteran playoff football team at home. I'm proud of what they accomplished in the 2nd half and when the growing pains are over expect that the 2nd half quality of play will become the norm and we will win games like today. I suspect it's gonna happen sooner than some on here might think.

    yea we CANNOT afford to have our offense continue to dig these huge holes early and expect to beat a quality proven team like the Falcons in their building. But as you alluded to PA Ram, this is about what you would expect from our young guys out there. It really showed today.

    Also , I must say , Pettis looked really good today, the offensive line played well, but what particularly stood out to me were the special teams' penalties. We have GOT to get that cleaned up.

    I think we were flagged on all but one kick/punt return the whole game. It sure seemed that way anyway.

    Someone please remind Bradford that all too soon the Rams will be taking a serious look at his $60million contract. Granted his INT was a defection off the shoulder pads that lead to Falcons TD, still I didn't seed the sense of urgency to throw a Bullet--I would imagine the ideal throw would to have "lead" his target to keep his momentum going...MAYBE growing pains for the team but not from the Rams QB...Want to see growing pains as a team, look at the Pats; if nothing else the Rams ought to be having those kind of mistakes--the receiving core

    There was nothing off the shoulder pads about that. It him square in the hands and he turned his hands into bricks.

    The offense needs to get aggressive from the opening tip - No more conservative play. Those dump offs to the back - Please. Throw the ball down the field as you have the talent.
