    Imagine That!

    According to NFL.com the Rams are ranked 15th against the rush and 13th against the pass. IMO coach is paying his dividends already, just imagine a good year of drafting and FA's.
    Just a little food for thought going into a boring bye week.

    Actually, there has been significant improvement. You just have to take a deeper look at the numbers.

    In 2008, the Rams allowed 4.9 yards per rushing attempt. 2009: 4.2.
    In 2008, the Rams allowed 8.3 yards per passing attempt. 2009: 7.7.
    In 2008, the Rams allowed 6.1 yards per play from scrimmage. 2009: 5.7.

    I you are not impressed by those numbers, here's an interesting qualifier that might cause alter your view.

    In 2008, the Rams had to defend 975 plays from scrimmage. In 2009, projecting the total during the first half of the season, the Rams will have to defend 1,048. There is no question that a defense that is on the field for more plays (as this case this year with the Rams poor showing on offense) is likely to wear down and give up more yards. So, in light of the fact that the team has been on the field more this year, the fact that the averages are down is noteworthy.

    The defense is definitely a work in progress. More than anything, the pass rush needs to improve. Still, I think these numbers show that the D is heading in the right direction.
