    rams rushing defense

    Can someone enlighten me statistically please. Are we truly DEAD LAST in the nfl is rushing yardage allowed per game and average yards per carry allowed?

    How do we stand compared to where we were last year at this time, or even last years final numbers would be a helpful data point.

    thanks very much to all of you internet gurus who can pull stuff up like this on the a moments notice.

    Re: rams rushing defense

    more disturbing may be this:

    in the last 5 games our defense has allowed an average of 186 rushing yds per game...things are not improving even though haslett has claimed in a monday interview that this team spends more time preparing run defense than any other team he has coached...

    Gee what a coincidence. We play five playoff caliber opponents in a row and we give up 186 yards per game on the ground. Haslett can prepare all he wants. He doesnt have the talent.

    We simply do not have the personnel that we need. Spoon is an undersized MLB and when you have an undersized MLB you have to have oversized DTs. Kennedy has the isze but is no where near dominant and Glover is to small against the run. We need to either get Fisk on the field or sign someone who is 320lbs. soon and protect Spoon.

    So basically we still suck. The saddest part about Sunday's game was that the defense played pretty good and still gave up over 200 ydrs rushing.

    Where are you Bud Carson?

    Bud Carson is dead as julius ceasar, but even buddy ryan himself couldnt make this group into an effective defense. Please, get us some better players, especially a pass rush and some ability to stuff the run in the middle.

    Or find a true MLB and move Spoon back to the outside where he's more comfortable.
