    Rams prepare for a strong Brees

    QUESTION: What must the Rams do to slow down Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints this weekend?

    JIM THOMAS

    Ball control by the Rams’ offense, like the 7 1/2-minute edge in time of possession they had Sunday in Arizona – or more. That’ll help but it won’t be enough given the quick-strike capabilities that the Saints possess. The Rams’ defense needs a big turnover game – maybe three or four or more. And Brees has thrown some INTs (16). And if ever the Rams were going to get a punt or kickoff return for a score, it would come in handy this week. Scoring 19 points won’t beat New Orleans.

    JEFF GORDON

    One, keep Brees off the field by actually running the football with some consistency and sustaining a ball-control offense. Two, take away the Saints running game – which won’t be easy with Na’il Diggs out for the year and the Rams lacking strong OLB play. Three, generate a consistent pass rush in the base defense to lessen the reliance on the blitz. Brees has seen it all, so the Rams will have to mix up their defenses. They won’t be able to blitz the Saints into submission liked they blitzed the Cardinals into submission.

    BRYAN BURWELL

    The Rams were able to stay competitive with New Orleans last year by winning time of possession. Barring some genius defensive game plan that will cover up the injuries in the secondary, keeping Brees off the field is the key.

    KEVIN WHEELER (Host of “Sports Open Line” on KMOX)

    Run the ball effectively all game long. The Saints pose matchup problems for most defenses because of their offensive depth and versatility, not to mention their Pro Bowl quarterback, so the best defense will be a consistent clock-chewing offense.

    On that note, it would help if the Rams jumped out to an early lead. If you fall behind the Saints you end up right where they want you, chasing your tail trying to keep up with them in an air-war when you’re outgunned. Staying within one score entering the 3rd and 4th quarters will be key. If you’re down double digits at the half and have to come out throwing, that plays right into Sean Payton’s hands.

    We have to keep on staying aggressive even if we somehow do have the lead. We've seen what happened to Dallas and Cincinnati.

    It seems the Rams have played the Saints very close over the past several years. Even last year when we went 1-15, Steven Jackson ran all over them and it was a 4 point game I think.

    Re: Rams prepare for a strong Brees

    The article makes a good point about Brees being difficult to throw out of whack with the blitz. However, I think if you can do it well (And generally the Rams seem to) it needs to be done as much as possible against a QB like Brees. He is a short QB, and better at making down field throws than short ones. Don't give him enough time to make a down field throw. Brees will pick you apart if he has time.
