Rams Report Card: RBs, O-line, coaching failing to make the grade
ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
Bulger took a pounding — his worst in a while. And there were a couple of times when he held the ball too long.
The grade has nothing to do with Jackson's performance. It's hard to do much with seven carries.
A rare bad day at the office. At least five drops; a lost fumble by Holt; Curtis loses 50-50 ball on Panthers interception.
Sure Pace was missed, but pass blocking was a mere rumor Sunday; there appeared to be some missed assignments.
Coverage units were good; return game once again wasn't a factor; Turk was superb; Wilkins' day consisted of one kickoff.
Two sacks for Glover; one for Little; but once again the run defense (242 yards allowed) was woeful.
Witherspoon and Chillar had their moments; unit was slow to react on some dump-off passes and shares blame for run woes.
Carter and Hill produce team's first INTs since Detroit; Atogwe forces fumble; Smith's 62-yard TD catch was the big blemish.
Where was the running game? It's hard to believe a team with Holt, Bruce, Bulger and Jackson can get shut out.
