    Rushing Yards Allowed: 79.8 YPG
    Yards Per Carry: 3.6
    Passing Yards Allowed: 226.2 YPG
    Completion %: 55.4
    TD/INT: 9 / 9
    Passer Rating Against: 72.5

    Enough said ....

    Re: Wanna see defensive improvement?

    This year I have yet to see an opposing RB run roughshoud through the secondary. With the maturity of our DB's this defense is the glue to what the Rams should do next year.

    I wonder if that computer dude who asks you to try his product and if you don't learn you'll get ten bucks has a program for Linehan to help with the offense?

    The defensive numbers in the second half of games has been bad. I would like to see a full game from both the players and coach for once.

    I think his "Faith Healer Made Easy" program would definitely help.

    Linehans offensive scheme is killing our D, plain and simple. We get good field position and the O gives the ball back!!...Thats flattening

    Do you not realize, our offense continues to put or defense in bad situations, but some how our defense usually comes out on top? Can you not see the fact that we give our offense many chances to put the game away, but they don't?

    Our D is constantly put in a bad spot, eventually they're going to break if our offense doesn't put points up on the board.

    Lest we get too excited lets not forget that we have hardly been playing the Colts and Pats these last few weeks. Some of the improvement comes from the fact that we're not playing very good teams.

    That's true, even Najeh Davenport gashed us.

    Its not crap. Yes, our defense is clearly better. But some of it is clearly related to the fact that we're playing one of the weakest schedules in the NFL. Its kind of like last season when everyone declared our offensive line problems fixed after its play improved against some of the weakest defensive lines in the game (with the obvious exception of Minnesota). It doesn't mean there hasn't been improvement, but lets not pretend we've been stopping Peyton Manning and Tom Brady either.

    Are you saying that Trent Dilfer and Kyle Boller aren't superstars?

    Last I checked, Dilfer shredded the Cards on the way to putting up 37 ...

    Disbelievers will always be disbelievers ...

    I wonder why everyone is so bitter ...

    It probably has to do with a former two-time Superbowl team being reduced to the 10-17 debacle it is now with no hope on the horizon. Also, it's like a bad acid flashback to the 90s.

    Okay, so what you're saying is that we're finally competetive against crappy teams, but still really can't compete with the good ones. If that's what you're using as your gauge for improvement, I'll give you that. We are certainly playing better against lower level teams than we have in the past couple of years. Do I think that Haslett is a genius and has brought this team leaps and bounds in his two seasons? No, I don't see that at all.

    Yes, that would explain why in the Saints game when we didn't turn the ball over, gained two turnovers, had a 39:49 to 20:18 TOP advantage, and scored 17 in the first half and 20 in the second, we still almost blew a 37-7 lead in the final quarter.
