    We HAVE to run more

    We HAVE to find a way to run the ball more consistently. The best way to protect the defense is to keep it off the field. If we can find a way to establish a running game, we can both shorten up the game and create even greater opportunities for bulger on play action.

    The defensive personnel is not going to change or improve between now and the end of the year. Haslett can try all the gimmicks he wants, but the fact is, we dont really have the horses to have a playoff caliber defense. In addition, i dont think our offensive line is good enough to score 35 points a week by throwing the ball all the time.

    Linehan has tried to establish better balance with the run but its not good enough. I think he should run more from the multiple wide receiver spread formation sets because from a pure power line up and play smash mouth up the middle football, we are still struggling. We really need help at guard but that isnt going to come until the off season.

    Ramming speed to all

    It was a play running the ball that changed the momentum of this game. That S. Davis fumble was a 14 point swing or at least a 10 point swing.:x

    The Rams need to watch tape on the Chargers' run plays -- that's how you successfully run the ball. Everyone hit their blocks perfectly yesterday.

    The Rams simply need better players on the OL.

    We do run the ball alot. But the offensive line doesn't create the holes needed to successfully run the ball. Its the line, not the playcalling.
