    Rams Report Card: Martz, O-Line ace Seattle test

    Rams Report Card: Martz, O-Line ace Seattle test

    Post-Dispatch Staff
    Sunday, Nov. 14 2004

    Grading the Rams after their 23-12 victory over the Seattle Seahawks:


    For the second time in his career, Marc Bulger has posted back-to-back passer
    ratings of 100-plus.

    GRADE . . . A minus

    Running backs

    The 1-2 punch at its best, with Marshall Faulk gaining a season-high 139 yards,
    and Stephen Jackson scoring his second touchdown in the NFL.

    GRADE . . . A


    There were a couple of drops, including a costly one by Shaun McDonald over the
    middle in the end zone.

    GRADE . . . B

    Offensive line

    Despite Orlando Pace's ejection and Chris Dishman's injury, this unit performed
    a 180 compared to last week.

    GRADE . . . A

    Defensive line

    The effort was there, but there wasn't much of a pass rush, or enough
    resistance on run defense.

    GRADE . . . C minus


    Some improvement from recent weeks, both in shedding blockers and getting to
    the ball.

    GRADE . . . B minus


    Easily its best outing of the year. Travis Fisher's impact on coverage is
    beginning to be felt.

    GRADE . . . A

    Special teams

    No huge breakdowns, but kickoff coverage is still lacking. Arlen Harris
    provided some spark on kickoff returns.

    GRADE . . . B minus


    With his team in a do-or-die dilemma, Mike Martz's extreme approach during the
    practice week paid dividends.

    GRADE . . . A

    Glad to see how Grant Williams responded effectively. And Dishman, Nütten, Timmerman, McCollum, Manumaleuna, Saipaia ... THE ENTIRE OL!

    It was just great to witness a productive offense by virtue of an improved OL performance.

    May we keep up the spirit AND the results!
