    Injury Report: I can't suit up this week to cover the TE ...

    I can't suit up to cover Shockey this week. I was so excited that McNair threw the last pass out of bounds that I headbutted the ole lady which in turn caused the dog to bite my ankle causing me to fall into the broken TV set glass (oh nevermind, that's another story).

    Anyway some of you may recall that the Rams coverage of TEs last year was so bad that I stepped in to crackback on SF's Johnson last year ... Since Shockey isn't a Yale product I'm not going to be able to confuse him with any psychobabble either from the bleachers ...

    The point? Coady's gone. Arch is playing stronger. But 5-0 and Coakley are going to have to take Shockey out early so EliWhinerAndPouter doesn't have his baby rattle to suck on.

    As much as the D looks improved, I'd like to see better coverage of the TEs ... especially against the G-men since this is one of their strong suits.

    Now where's that damnn dog ...

    Excellent point adarian. Baby Eli lit it up for 352 against the Chargers and 101 of that went to Shockey. The D absolutely needs to knock that baby rattle out of his mouth with lots of pressure and hopefully lots of hits.

    We'll need to blitz him early and often. It's a gamble, but with a young guy like Eli, I think he can be shaken up early and crumble.

    We have our own LT in our backfield.Pound'em and then pound'em some more.Score early make Eli throw,and then keep his butt on the turf.We need to show them we can play power football and control the clock.

    Eli is a sound QB. If he didn't get rattled in San Diego, in that hostile atmosphere, then the Rams aren't going to rattle him at home.

    The Rams just need to feed Jackson/Faulk on offense and keep the Giants O on the sideline. Take the crowd out of the game early.

    He Threw For 350 Yds Because They Were So Far Behind And He Was Playing Catchup, So I Dont Think I Would Say He Lit Them Up, As We All Know With A Big Lead Teams Play Soft And Allow The Short Stuff Which Pads Your Stats, Also Txram I Am Not So Sure Eli Is A Sound Qb Yet, Playing Well But I Think You Can Get Any Qb Rattled If You Knock Him On His Butt A Bunch Of Times, B Ut Your Right If We Control The Clock And Score Tds In The Red Zone We Should Win.

    Playing catch up or not, he was 24/41 for those 352 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions. The flip side of your argument is that the defense knew exactly what he was going to do and had the advantage of being able to use that to their advantage, yet he still pretty much "lit them up".

    We need to pressure this guy and take Shockey away.

    I'm not so sure about that.

    We need to play sound football. Run the ball (MIKE), good pass protection, and no turnovers. The LB's do need to shadow Barber and Shockey.

    He didn't get rattled Carlos, and the kid won't get rattled. He is cool under pressure. Shoot, he went to Ole Miss where his dad was a legend.

    We don't need to worry about Eli though. We must stop their running game.

    Good point Tx. San Diego held them to 86 yards rushing and the result speaks for itself. I do think though that with pressure, Manning can be rattled. With our red-zone problems, we don't want to get into a field goal battle with them which is exactly what could happen if we let them throw the ball up and down the field.

    Well Phil, I'm not ready to give this kid credit yet. It's a known fact that SD's secondary is pretty bad.

    I knew Archie. And Eli is no Archie.

    Hopefully we can help him take a big step BACKWORD in that pursuit.
