    How does SJax do it? We are so awful now, imagine where we would be without him. Those who talk about trading Jackson make me crazy--talk about throwing out the baby with the bath water! GoRams!
    A defeated look of consternation, dissappointment, or even pain. The name derives from the look one often gets when challenged by a large BM.

    I honestly didnt expect bulger to have that good of a rating, so that one. Not neccisarly because it's better then sanchez's but because it's not in the 70s.

    Another little know fact is that we are Ranked 12th in rushing ypg gaining 113.8 ypg. That's what defensive minded coaches do. They stop the run, and force feed the run down ur throat. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Want some, get some...GoRams

    Re: Most Surprising Rams Stat

    I voted for the poor turnover ratio. I didn't see this coming after a great preseason of takeaways.

    I too opted for the poor turnover ratio. Couple that with being (I'm pretty sure) the most penalized team in the NFL and it really becomes quite clear just why and how we're so lowly offensively.
    Coach is working to make the team much more disciplined and football savvy, it just goes to show that it's indeed an uphill battle.

    I voted for us being second to last in turnover ratio, after all the talk in the offseason about protecting the rock i thought we would be a little more focused about executing the idea. But i guess not.

    Re: Most Surprising Rams Stat

    I'm with you guys, that turnover ratio is very surprising considering how good we looked in preseason. I can only imagine how different all 4 games would have played out if that stat was reversed in our favor, regardless of the penalties. Here's hoping things change against Jax.

    No receiver in the top 50 for receiving yards !!!

    If we had only one legitimate long ball threat that had top 30 reception yards, SJ would be THAT much better.

    Re: Most Surprising Rams Stat

    I personally voted for the rams being in top half for rushing yards allowed.

    Considering how poor the run defense has been the last few years.

    I think it is exciting to watch the rams hit those gaps and get penetration.

    It's exciting to see; knowing that they will only get better. Also not to forget that Billy D will add a few more pieces to the defence next year; which is coming along just fine IMO.

    Go Rams 09

    I honestly think they're all shocking stats except for Laurinaitis.

    But Steven Jackson being #4. Too bad he hasn't gotten any touchdowns. He deserves them.

    I cannot believe, as anemic as this offense has been, we're not dead last in total yards. Prolly were until Sunday.

    Turnovers are horrible. We are forcing a decent amount but giving up way to many its ugly. Thought we would be in positive numbers

    Re: Most Surprising Rams Stat

    In 2006, we were 31st in rushing yards allowed, based on yards per carry. We improved to 20th the following year but then we slumped again last season to 29th. Okay, we've only played five games so far but we're 14th at the moment (and we've faced Adrian Peterson), so I am pleasantly surprised that we have improved the defence against the running game so much.
