Thread: Ram Offense
-09-09-2001 #1K-Ram Guest
Anybody else concerned with the Rams ineffective offense today against the Eagles. We've seen offensive problems during the pre-season but now I know the offense is struggeling.
Good question K-Ram, in fact a necessary concern!
Yes, considering the "patented" potential that has made Rams big O so revered and renowned, it's clear we're not quite there --yet. Specifically, the pass game, it sold itself poorly today (albeit against a very strong Eagles defense). Still, a well earned victory during a great, tough game!
I do believe Kurt and company will improve dramatically by next week's game. Coupled with the progress which the Ram defense proved today, I think the entire team will auto - supply itself with strength, confidence and ability as a whole. That is, now the offense, aware of what they're capable of, will step up a couple of levels in performance and this will inevitably enhance the entire horse power / ram power of a true Super Bowl contender.
[Special teams: now cut out those silly holding penalties during returns!!! ]
Ok, now let's go after dem Falcons! :cool: GO RAMS!!!
All they did is look rusty!
They played VERY little in the preseason and it showed. Give them a couple weeks to put it all back together. They will be fine as long as Warners Thumb is ok

I am concerned. It was obvious that Warner needed more work in the preseason. Rusty to say the least. Faulk played like he hadn't been away from it. Cool!
You've got to give the Eagle defense credit for making our offense look less than stellar. But some bad play calls do need to be corrected.
The defense has really step up! The offense will get the cobwebs out. If wasn't a pretty win, but perfect games are boring. Gotta give our guys credit for keeping it exciting. Hey, bottom line--we won the game. Time to look forward to the next one.

Warner needed WAAAAAAY More work in preseason. He still will be great, but VERY rusty. It doesn't help when the O-Line is continually getting beat.
Pace held off hugh for a while, but even hugh was getting around pace. O-Line is a major dissappointment/hinderance.
Yeah, I agree. I see now where Kurt should have played at least another half during the last preseason game. And I think coach Martz sees it too.
He completed three, four or five important short passes thanks to --or rather, only because-- of a saving effort by the Proehl, Hakim, Holt; the ball was well behind on all of those! Clearly, his accuracy and timing sharpened in the second 1/2 --sigh!
Let's get his thumb up then and start shooting some Falcons!
The offense sputtered a bit,but I think they will come around next week.Credit the Eagles,they have a great defense.Overall, I think our Rams showed a lot of character.A championship team has to win the close games and we did.A championship team also has to win when not firing on all cylinders.We did that also.Overall,Im very pleased with the teams performance.
GO RAMS!ST.LOUIS RAMS:THE MOST FRUSTRATING TEAM IN THE NFL!!!

Play calling in OT
In OT, you make two great plays and get the ball to the 14 yard line, first and ten.
Then you run an end around reverse which gains two yards. That was stupid! Ernie had not taken a handoff the whole game. They should have kicked the field goal on first down.
Stupid Stupid Stupid.
As Jerry Glanville says..... This is the NFL, which means Not For Long if you keep making bonehead calls like that!
Oh yeah, Next preseason......play the offense a little more. They looked entirely too rusty!
the reverse was to line the ball on the Left hash and achieved its objective
GO CLAYMORES : DEAD BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
No worries Mate :)
Worried? About the offense? Why worry? Folks, they played against the best corners in the NFL last Sunday. The Eagles D is as solid as anyone's, and Warner STILL threw for over 300 yards. We are spoiled with the "Greatest Show on Earth" dismantling teams. Remember, the game was in Philadelphia. Believe me, Philadelphia on NFL Sunday's won't be mistaken as the "City of Brotherly Love." The Vet is one of the toughest places to play in the NFL when the home team is good, and guess what; the home team is good. This was the first time they were together on the field for an extended period of time, and had to begin their year against one of the best defenses in the league. I think the offense did a "B" game job in the second half, and they would admit it. However, just like them, I am not worried.
