    Sando: Silver Linings: Rams At Cardinals

    Silver Linings: Rams At Cardinals

    By Mike Sando
    November 7, 2011

    The facts: The St. Louis Rams fell to 1-7 with a 19-13 overtime loss at Arizona in Week 9.

    The upside: Even the worst defeats tend to feature a bright spot or two.

    •The Rams got strong production from Steven Jackson in the running game once again. Jackson carried 29 times for 130 yards. He has 289 rushing yards on 54 carries over the last two games. Jackson's one reception moved him past Elroy "Crazy Legs" Hirsch for sixth on the Rams' all-time list with 344.

    •Josh Brown made three field-goal attempts.

    •The Rams allowed a season-low 262 yards.

    •Rookie Greg Salas led all players with seven receptions, one short of his career high.

    •The Rams' defense collected two safeties. St. Louis became the first team in NFL history to score exactly four points in a quarter, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

    •Chris Long collected his fourth sack int he last two games, giving him seven for the season. He set a career high with 8.5 last season.

    •Rookie Robert Quinn had a sack for the second game in a row. He has three for the season.

    •Safety Darian Stewart had three passes defensed, a tackle for loss and a forced fumble. He broke up a long pass for tight end Jeff King. Stewart, in his second season, has come on strong lately. He had the clinching interception return for a touchdown against New Orleans last week.

    •The Rams' run defense played well for a second week in a row, limiting Beanie Wells to 20 yards on 10 carries.

    •The Rams held a 12-minute advantage in time of possession.

    •Sam Bradford made it through the game on his injured ankle, passing for 255 yards.

    The only number worth anything is the one you put in the "W" column in Monday's newspaper.

    Talk about putting lipstick on a pig! How many FGs has Brown had blocked? I have seen three in person at the Dome between this year and last. He approaches the ball without a sense of urgency. I am driving to Foyil, OK this off-season and kicking him in the groin.

    Brown had some FGs blocked last year too? Do you recall which games as I can't seem to remember them at this point.

    Silver Linings? I thought this thread was going to be about the 2 boots Bradford is wearing now to protect himself from the BS Spags is throwing around! It's gotten real deep!

    Wow. You know the torches and pitchforks are out when positives are no longer even a part of the discussion. The loss was extremely painful and depressing for me, but I still felt good about what guys like Jackson, Salas, Lloyd, Stewart, Quinn, and Long did. Those guys performed and earned their pay. The overall play of the defense was encouraging as well for the second week in a row. I'm actually looking forward to the Browns game.
