Re: rams vs. chargers, the good, bad and ugly
Big runs or not the Defense still had gaping holes to run through. Scary thing is the two big runs both ended up going towards Tinoisamoa. Adding Claiborne and Coakley is great but if teams run away from them and at Pisa the defense could be in trouble.
Getting zero pressure on Brees was a disaster, the guy looked like a freaking superstar out there. I only think two guys on defense should feel good about their play and it's Groce and Ivy other than that everyone else was below average. Fisher looked lost out there, I thought maybe he switched numbers with a rookie because he seemed like he had no idea where the ball was. Did Hargrove even play? I couldnt see him through the blockers who had him locked up all night.
My Blue and Gold blinders are off because I don't care how much crap I hear about our d-line and the progress they are making, it just doesnt show on the field. I know it's pre-season hardly the time to blast players, but these guys need to step up.
I am so not impressed with Barron, he looks average even on the left side. He pretty much was getting manhandled by the Chargers second and 3rd string. The whole offensive line looked like crap and Bulger seemed to be very nervous about it in the first one and a half quarters.
Jackson and Curtis could both have huge years, they are turning in performances like we have been hearing about on the practice field. Those two guys are not paper champs like our d-line. Curtis and Jackson's hard work shows up on the field why can't our d-lines hard work show up?
Our special teams actually looked good on pass and kick coverage but our return game needs much work. So far Fair looks the best back there.
I'm not in panic mode yet, but I want to see some good play from our d-line and not against cream puffs like the Bears. They need to show up vs the Lions and the Chiefs and play well.Aim high Willis, Aim High!

But their 2's and 3's ran well against us."Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat; long is the road thereto and rough and steep at first; but when the heights are reached, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning." --- Hesiod
