    Quite possible. I mean this team is not known for its 2nd half defensive lockdown, is it?

    However, 35 of those 71 yards came from a QB scramble. To extrapolate that, I doubt many QBs are going to put up 140 rushing yards against us. With Young.....yea, I could see it. Maybe Tavaris Jackson, Jay Cutler, even a healthy McNabb. But not the average QB.

    Not that the flipside of that record sounds any better. I mean if 35 of those yards came from Young's scramble, then the other 36 had to come from the RB. That extrapolation represents 144 rushing yards per game. Ouch.

    The good news is the passing extrapolation has the Rams leading the league with only 68 passing yards per game. That's gotta be a record!

    Considering that teams might not have to pass against us, we might hold that record deep into the season!!!
