    i've been noticing...

    so far, that people keep picking against the rams special teams and saying the advantage goes to the other team...

    i don't expect them to pick the rams all the time, or even right now...

    but a punter that can boom it, and a kicker that hasn't missed...with decent coverage teams, don't know what they want more of lol

    Week 3 W2W4: Bears-Rams - Chicago Bears - ESPN Chicago

    here's the link, it's a bit...one sided to say the least

    No kicker is perfect, but man it's going to be weird when young gz actually misses one...

    Totally agree though, but Hester will always sway the special teams matchup in da bears favor.

    totally agree with hester, but there's more to special teams than kick returns, especially when zuerlein will just kick it out of the other endzone, hester won't be effective on kickoffs, i mean, on punts maybe...

    eh, just a report anyway lol

    They do have one of the best returners of all time in, Devin Hester.

    Actually he did miss one last week, but fortunately Shanny outguessed himself, and" The Leg" received a 2nd chance upon which he capitalized ..

    As good as Hester is he's neutralized really easy. Just don't kick the ball to him. I think we can say that with a straight face this year.

    How funny was that! Not Shanahan's best day.

    As far as the perceived matchup, I found it interesting that the once sure fire superstar QB and the gun-shy QB bust are rated equal.

    Not minimizing Hester at all, but the Rams' ST were a big reason they best the Skins last week. Besides Legatron being perfect again and booming kickoffs, Hecker stood on the goal line and nailed a 65 yard blast that totally reversed field position at a key moment in the game. Bradford got picked-off in the endzone and instead of "oh hell, here we go again with another collapse," Mulligan breaks through to block a punt which lead to him being doubly-rewarded as he gets a TD reception right afterwards. Huge sequence in the game right there.

    I'd give CHI the advantage in return men with no argument whatsoever, but is a lot more to special teams than just returns. Rams used to have great special teams back in the 1970's and into the early part of the 1980's but a lot of years of real UGH lately. That has definitely turned around so far this year and it's a welcome sight.

    So Espn is saying the rams should just say in the bus and not even show up if the bears have the advantage in every category right???

    As Chris Berman says... " that's why they the game!"
