One thing I will point out is our defense is NOT NO's D. We have the ability to confuse veteran QB's - we did with Stafford for the majority of last week's game. Do you think that Fisher is going to go into this game with only defensive play this week?
I don't think so. Yes, it will be a hard game for us - but a good game. And our D will end up screwing with RGIII's head more than once. Just because he has had ONE good game does NOT mean he is great - it only means he has had ONE GOOD GAME. PERIOD.
When he has established a pattern over the next few years, and we can analyze his performance in those games, THEN we can decide if he's as good as everyone thinks he is. Until then...he's just another rookie who has had one hell of a lot of good luck in his first game.
While I have repeatedly admitted that the Saints D maybe one of the worst, if not the worst, in the league and the Rams have a much better D, at least the players on paper (too early to tell, because the stats don't show this) I don't think it's they did a great job against the Lions.
Mathew Stafford is one of those guys who will have brain farts during a game, throwing multiple picks. Watching the Lions game, I saw Stafford make bone headed mistakes. His first interception, caught by Janoris Jenkins, was his staring down the receiver. Jenkins kept his eyes on Bradford and say on the pass. It was an easy pitch and catch. Second interception, caught by Dunbar, another stupid throw. Dunbar was playing zone sitting on Pettigrew with his eyes on Stafford the whole time. How Stafford didn't see him there is beyond me. And the last interception, Finnegen was sitting UNDERNEATH the freaking route. He just undercut it. Another boneheaded throw.
The Rams deserve all the credit for making the plays, good defensive plays calls, but like everyone else here keeps saying about the Redskins - it was one game. And the other side of the coin is the Lions still put up 429 yards of offense.
