    Strongest Strength, Weakest Weakness

    Judging from game one, what was our top strength and our biggest weakness?

    I didn't see the game but from reading a lot of stuff I'd say:

    Strength - Offense. I hate to not give a more detailed answer but it sounds like our offense was great, (cept for the turnovers).

    Weakness - Special teams.

    Re: Strongest Strength, Weakest Weakness

    This is a little tough to do, judging from only one game against the lowly Cardinals, but what the heck. Based on the first game, I'd have to say that the offensive line is our strongest strength so far. They paved the way for 170+ yards rushing (when was the last time the Rams did that?), averaging six - SIX - yards per carry, and allowed exactly zero sacks. Nothing works without a good offensive line.

    The weakest weakness, along with the obvious expected turnovers, is the rushing defense. Emmitt Smith. 87 yards. Ouch.

    Re: Strongest Strength, Weakest Weakness

    I saw the game here in Mexico so My opinion is this

    We are strong at the offense but with the same marks as fumbles but seems the o-line is fine hope the keep well, and bulger need to be in better shape. we need to work another plays in the red zon because we repeted a lot the same plays.

    Defense I thnik the run defense needs to improve but I saw them just fine but again this was against the cards, The teams will test our CB a lot hope the can keep well cause groce/garrte will share lots of time.

    STeams, I think we were bad in coverage and returning I think McDonald hesitates a lot instead of run directly, and Arlen Harris well he's a turtle, but at least he doesn't fumbled last sunday.

    the rams greatest strength, imo, is that they have the potential to win against any team on any given sunday...

    the rams greatest weakness is that they think they're good enough to win against any team on any given sunday...

    I think Jake hit it on the head. I believe coming out of Week 1, the O-line is our biggest strength and our run defense is still our biggest weakness, although I think you could make a case that turnovers were a bigger overall weakness as well.

    Biggest Strength? Resilency.

    Frailest Weakness? Immaturity.

    Strongest Strength = persistency. They did not doubt their ability to win even when they were making mistakes.
    Weakest weakness = the turnovers.

    Biggest strength....so far it's the O line.

    biggest weakness....KO coverage. Garrett can't just stand there and think the returner is going to run into him.

    Ahhh, music to my ears. I love the fact that last year's line with highly touted acquisitions Wohlabaugh and Turley were supposed to rule the world then was in the bottom 10% of run offense and sacks allowed. And the "experts" just couldn't understand. So then this year, we lose DW & KT and the "experts" just swear that the sky is falling in the Ed dome. Lo & behold, our line now looks better than ever. Dish & Grant pushing through injury, McCollum facing yet another position change, Pace dumping his ball & chain...I love it, these guys are storybook material.

    Biggest weakness, ST minus Massey, Looker, & Wilkins.
