    Re: Schotty 'Felt Good' About Last Play vs. Seattle

    To be clear, I wasn't "attacking" Clemens, just stating a fact. He is a backup QB with marginal skills, and very little time behind center with the Rams new weapons to get a feel and the timing needed for that play to be successful. Quick is still trying to get a grasp on NFL defenses and route running and to day, has been a huge disappointment. To think that was the "best chance of winning" is beyond ridiculous.

    As someone else stated, If the Rams cannot pound the ball 1 freakin' yard after gaining nearly 200 on the ground, they don't belong in the conversation about playoff contenders anyway. With the guys they had on the field, that play call was horrible. Period. It played right into the strength of the Hawks. They gift wrapped that game to Seattle and as a Rams fan it was sickening to watch, and even more outrageous to hear them defend the call.

    Faithful Rams fan since 1968

    Who called Clemens out? I think everyone knows he was put in a bad situation. From reading the posts in this thread, it's Schotty who's being called out with impunity.

    I made the comment about Bradford to specifically challenge the ridiculous notion by Schotty that the play was a good bet because it had worked several times in the past. It's simply a fact that Bradford was the QB who made those plays, not Clemens. That's not a slam on Clemens, who just doesn't have the ability to do what Bradford can do.

    I agree. I think the main point there is that it may have been a mistake to assume that a high percentage play with Bradford to Pettis was going to be a high percentage play for Clemens to Quick. Maybe it had worked well in practice, but it didn't look like a very good decision based on the personnel match-ups.

Probably the same planet that thought Clemons could make that pass when he needed to. If they were intent on throwing the ball, how about a little PA? They had been pounding the ball against them all game and I would think that it would make sense to show run and then pass, especially with a blitz coming. But an empty backfield?

    SO MUCH THIS!

    Isn't a fade a 15%-20% play even with starting-level quality players? No way in Hades Clemens-Quick can execute that. No. Effin'. Way.

    Seriously, I hate the fade. https://www.fantasyindex.com/2013/06...e-is-overrated

    Unbelievable. When Stacy went wide, I prayed for a QB keeper.

    And yet I'm excited for the future... Again...
