    It depends on if we announce we're starting Dockery or not.

    Bad. I'd much rather play against Alex Smith. Troy is hard to bring down and is very mobile which is obviously a concern on our part. Either QB, we have to step up big time and win this game.

    Well troy was doing good for the denver and rams game but fell off the three games after that so I guess it depends with "smith" shows up.

    We had problems with him in the first meeting, so I was hoping to see Alex Smith. The 23 yard completion he made to Gore on 4th and 18 late in that first game still haunts me. I've got to believe Spags will have a better idea of how to contain him this time around. No Gore helps too.

    This is bad...

    Our defense never really plays good against mobile QB's. We never seem to be able to bring them down and/or contain them..

    Hell, Matt Cassel isn't even that mobile AND coming off a surgery, and he dodged our d-line like they weren't even moving.

    what I've noticed is that we have a tendency to over rush. our defense needs to push their offensive line men back and anticipate Troy rolling out. Spags has done well in the past with mobile qbs, heck he faced McNabb twice a year.

    Re: Troy smith to start sunday

    Maybe i am overly optimistic, but i see the Rams coming out with tremendous fire at home and Bradford in particular, stepping up in this must-win game! Rams need to stop the 6 game losing streak to the whiners and establish Bradford as a whiner-killer for years to come

    No Gore for San Fran is huge for us. Last game he destroyed us in the passing game and was a big option for Smith in the clutch. Westbrook still has juice in the tank however so we aren't off the hook totally. I have faith in our ability to contain their offense, what I worry about is if OUR offense can establish some rhythm again and put these last couple of debacles behind us officially.

    If we see anything like we did against the Chiefs and fail to adjust, we'd better hope our defense becomes lights out and Josh Brown puts on his golden cleats..

    Yes. It's noticeable that while our defensive ends are doing a good job rushing him, all he has to do is step up into the pocket to run because our defensive tackles are creating almost no push, and there's a hole bigger than a school bus for him to just scramble out of.

    What we can do is try to fill up the gaps with linebackers, but our secondary is going to have to be lights out.


    I'm not worried about Westbrook. All I'm worried about on their offense is the ability of Troy Smith to extend plays, and convert ridiculous 3rd and 32s and 4th and 18s...



    Oh, and our receivers better step up. AND, Danario Alexander better be a factor in the game plan.

    No excuses!!! They can put Alex or Troy Smith out there. The outcome is going to be the same.

    RAMS WIN!!!!
