    Penalties

    So I was bored and decided to look at the Rams team stats. I noticed that the Rams led the league in penalties committed and the Rams are dead last in 1st downs completed.

    I don't recall this statistic being posted here so I thought I'd share. I think the 1st downs being dead last is due to the drive killing penalties the team likes to commit. This should definitel be something the Rams work on during the offseason. I thought we got rid of Alex Barron..

    It might be a blowback from being the youngest team in the NFL. Hopefully some more experience will place us better in the penalty category. Also, both defense and offence was in their first year with a new system. This might also have something to do with it.

    "New system", just seems to cover everything.
    "The horror"

    Recall the Rams ending in a Tie with the 49whinners at their first meeting this pass season? Guess how that happened?

    Granted the Rams are young, but these players have been playing the game from highschool through college so I don't see a reaon or even an excuse for all those penalties...I chalk it up to lack of discipline. False starts, delay of game, illegel shifts, and other proceedual penalties are unacceptable for a NFL team. Its one of the "improvements" am looking for in these upcoming season
