    Indoors vs. Outdoors

    Our RAMS have played 5 games "indoors". 4 at the Edward Jones Dome and 1 on the road at the Superdome. Our record in Dome games is 1-4 our only dome win coming on the road. However we were competitive in all 4 of our games at home. With any luck at all we would have split the 4 home games.

    1. Lost vs Caorlina 27-13 (Steven Jackson fumbles twice)
    2. Lost vs San Fran 17-16 ( Holt fumbles through the endzone & Dante' Hall fumbles a punt)
    3. Lost vs Arizona 34-31 ( The refs stole this game from us)
    4. Lost vs Cleveland 27-20 ( Ahead 14-3 when Steven Jackson goes out with the back injury)

    Our offense has put up 117 points and averaged 361.4 net yards per "Indoor" game.

    Outdoors is a completely different picture. Granted obviously all "outdoor" games are road games. We are 1-4 "outdoors" with our lone win coming against the pathetic Whiners.

    1. Lost @ Tampa Bay 24-3
    2. Lost @ Dallas 35-7
    3. Lost @ Baltimore 22-3
    4. Lost @ Seattle 33-6
    5. Won @ San Fran 13-9

    Our offense has scored 32 as in thirty-two points in 5 "outdoor" road games. While averaging an equally embarrassing 224.8 total net yards per game.

    The good news is that we have 6 regular season games left to play. 4 of which will be played "in" the Edward Jones Dome. The other 2 will be at Cincinnati and Arizona.

    My question is this: Does our team have a problem with "outdoor" football? I mean liars figure but figures don't lie. We are horrendous "OUTDOORS"!

    Re: Indoors vs. Outdoors

    Let me it take this a step further.

    For the 2006 season we played 7 "outdoor" games and 9 "indoor" games.

    OUTDOORS:
    118 total points scored (16.9 ppg avg.)

    INDOORS:
    249 total points scored (27.6 ppg avg)

    Our offense sputters outside.

    Why?

    I'm just glad we're going for three in a row indoors!

    I can't argue the fact that we play better indoors. One thing that I see for this season is our road games were usually against better defenses (other than the Saints - indoors). Tampa, Dallas, Balt are all good. Seattle has a decent D, same with SF.

    So that's just one thing I see as to why we are worse on the road this year so far.

    Yeah, I think we're slightly better on the rug, but I would lay this more on the competition we've played rather than the surface on which we played them.
