    Rams Report Card: Special teams still top performers

    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    Monday, Oct. 08 2007

    QUARTERBACK
    Two of Frerotte's three INTs should never have been thrown; one was returned
    for a game-changing TD.
    GRADE: D

    RUNNING BACK
    Leonard topped 100 yards and averaged 5.7 yards per carry; maybe he should've
    gotten the ball more often.
    GRADE: B+

    RECEIVERS
    Bennett and McMichael both finally found the end zone; Holt should have caught
    pass that led to Frerotte's first INT.
    GRADE: C

    OFFENSIVE LINE
    Blocking wasn't bad, all things considered, but Incognito's 50 yards' worth of
    penalties were just plain dumb.
    GRADE: C

    DEFENSIVE LINE
    Got decent pressure but no sacks; good against the run for all four quarters
    for a change.
    GRADE: B-

    LINEBACKER
    Witherspoon had a very active day, knocking Leinart out of the game with a
    sack; unit is struggling in coverage.
    GRADE: C+

    SECONDARY
    Brown's season debut at corner included 2 interceptions, but Walls' play is
    still hurting team.
    GRADE: C+

    SPECIAL TEAMS
    Wilkins ends FG skid, Jones punts well again, Hall has big return, coverage
    units good, Carriker blocks FG.
    GRADE: B+

    COACHING
    Use of no-huddle, more creative play-calling by Linehan helped offense; defense
    played with more intensity.
    GRADE: C

    Special teams deserved an A. I hate the way he changes the individual grades based on whether the team wins or loses. If you are going to grade individual guys, the team outcome doesnt matter, except of course when it comes to the coach, and even in that case, its not always true, as a coach can have a good game and lose and vice versa.

    ramming speed to all

    I think the defensive grades should be a little higher. Based on points allowed alone.

    34-7 (fumble into end zone) = 27-7 (the end of 1st half debacle)= 20-7(int returned for a TD)= 13. Not bad if you ask me.

    Woulda shoulda coulda

    Aren't you also being a little hard on Frerotte? The man did produce 3 TD passes. Deserves a C in my book ...
