    Missed tackles

    I decided when the game started I was going to try and keep track of the miss tackles. You are going to be shocked with what I came up with!! Take a guess.

    And this was only counted until half way through the forth quarter because I had to go to my daughters Christmas Program

    Re: Missed tackles

    The moates run said it all about the run defense this year. tyoka had him wrapped up for a loss in the backfield and lost him, furrey took a terrible angle and whiffed and corey ivy went high and got shook right off. several others were blocked out of the play. what a joke.

    ramming speed to all

    Basic fundamentals are missing on this defense. Scheme or no scheme, if they aren't wrapping them up, then this defense will never improve; this year or next. Everyone is looking for that one good hit to get them on "Jacked Up!" instead of just tackling.

    Re: Missed tackles

    pisa had a nice int. He also (to jk rams point) had a big hit, which he failed to wrap up on, and missed the tackle. Knocking the guy out of the game is not the objective, tackling him is.

    Re: Missed tackles

    Despite the poor tackling, at times, the defense did not play that bad. Poor tackling is not just a Rams problem. It occurs throughout the league and plagues almost every team at times.

    The offense was again totally stagnant and they lost some opportunities in the red zone.

    Some interesting notes from the telecast:

    The Rams offense has 34 giveaways.

    The Rams defense has had to play the "shortest field" in the league.

    Ferter is right. Anyone watch KC this past Saturday vs Tiki Barber and the Giant WRs? It was a pathetic display of tackling.
