    Penalties

    For three quarters we killed ourselves with penalties. against that type of team in a road game it its almost impossible to come back with a 21 point deficit. Almost though is a good way to describe todays game. Bradford again brought the team back with some solid play. If we stop them with 2:09 and two T/O left it would've been interesting to see what we could've done. Question is, should we have kicked an onside? its one of those things as a head coach if you trust your defense or not.

    I think an onside has less percentage of happening than the Rams forcing a 3 and out and you need the field position as well. I don't have a problem with the decision to NOT onside kick.

    There was plenty of time, we had 2 time outs, and the 2 minute warning. I think kicking away was a good decision, especially the way the defense was playing in the second half. If only JLau had better coverage on the critical 3rd down.

    The penalties were maddening. I haven't checked the stats, but I wouldn't be surprised to see the Rams once again leading the league.

    To me the most frustrating thing about all these penalties is that they're not going to go away. Some might say it's because we have a young team, but if you look at Fisher's extensive track record, his teams are always near the top of the league in penalties per game. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth after the game because I'm left wondering "what if.."

    Maddening. Exasperating. Annoying. Appropriate adjectives. I felt them and I wasn't even watching!

    In hindsight, even after a few hours today, I want to think that as PARamfan said, these Rams mistakes are honest and true, terrible growing pains. I also believe that we WILL improve this season.
