Rams Report Card: RBs rise, coaches fall in average performance
ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
Monday, Nov. 13 2006
Bulger's string of 100-plus passer ratings ends at six. He was under pressure
much of the game, particularly after Pace left.
Jackson averaged 5.2 yards a carry and finished with 143 yards rushing and
receiving. Why didn't he get the ball more often?
Holt and Bruce both caught seven passes, but Rams got little going downfield;
only one completion went more than 18 yards.
When do the mistakes stop? Four false starts, including two by Barron.
Incognito's personal foul was a killer.
Instead of leveling Burleson before his punt return for TD, Witherspoon and
Harris watched him catch the ball and go.
Little was all over the place, with two sacks and the forced fumble that led to
Adeyanju's TD return. Run defense was poor. Again.
Two sacks for Witherspoon; Tinoisamoa did what he could with bad hand, elbow.
Stevens' TD catch came between the two LBs.
Not much to get excited about here. Rams haven't had an interception since way
back in Game 4, and Butler still can't crack lineup.
Haslett was too conservative on defense in 1st half; Linehan's play-calling was
strange, especially on 4th-down pass in 4th quarter.
