    St. Louis Rams’ unproductive offense stuns even Jim Haslett

    Jim Haslett is a defensive guy. He played linebacker in the league and has been the defensive coordinator for three NFL teams. But he knows enough about offense to recognize the dysfunctional unit that the Rams have been all season. Haslett was especially stunned by its lack of production in Sunday’s 17-16 loss to the *****

    The Rams ran 79 plays to just 55 for Frisco, had a time-of-possession edge of more than 17 minutes, gained 343 total yards, and yet produced a single touchdown. “Now, that’s disappointing,” Haslett said Monday at his weekly press gathering. “When you get the yardage and play defense like we did and score just one touchdown, you’re not going to win too many games.”

    The defense, Haslett pointed out, has given up 16, 17, 16 and 20 points in the last four games — all losses, of course. “We’re playing well enough (defensively), but we’ve got to generate some points,” he said.

    The Rams have been shockingly ineffective in the red zone. In 24 trips inside their opponents’ 20-yard line, they’ve produced just seven TDs. Next worst in the league is the Raiders, with 12. NFC West champ Arizona, the Giants and the Saints lead the NFL, with 35 red-zone touchdowns apiece.

    Notes & quotes:

    *Despite their woes, the Rams aren’t the lowest-scoring team in the league. They’re averaging 13.7 points per game. The Bengals are last, at 12.5.

    *Think Haslett is too easy on his players? RB Antonio Pittman might argue that point. Haslett fined Pittman $25,000 and benched him Sunday after he failed to show up for Saturday’s walk-through.

    *LB Pisa Tinoisamoa, who quietly is having a fine season, recorded a team-high eight tackles, including two sacks, according to the coaches’ film review.

    *FS Oshiomogho Atogwe had another big day, with seven tackles, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and an interception.

    All for now . . .

    "The defense, Haslett pointed out, has given up 16, 17, 16 and 20 points in the last four games."
    That's not bad, JUST those last 4 games are about average for a defense. Still, with our offensive pieces, we should have won all of those.

    Pittman may have fallen out of favor with Haslett, and it doesn't help him that Darby has done very well taking over for him. Pittman may not play much at all next week, and it doesn't look like Haz would want to bring him back.

    Re: St. Louis Rams’ unproductive offense stuns even Jim Haslett

    We are now officially at a cross roads. And top to bottom this teams needs a total revamp for the 2009 season. Losing to the ***** is bad enough. It's a rival game. The only good thing out of the game to say the least was seeing Isaac Bruce set another record and against us no less. But Bruce i respect and will never say anything bad about him. He is and was a true warrior with us and now with our rival. So it probably was nice for him to prove this organization wrong for letting him exit.
