Week 2: Rams Report Card


Grading the Rams after their 17-12 victory at Arizona:


Marc Bulger wasn't bad but didn't seem in sync, like he was at end of preseason.

Grade: B minus

Running back:

Steven Jackson nearly got 100 yards, displaying power, speed and nifty footwork.

Grade: B


Torry Holt, Kevin Curtis got separated from the ball early; Isaac Bruce was the most consistent.

Grade: C

Offensive line:

Marc Bulger could have avoided a couple of the Big Red's four sacks; good run blocking.

Grade: B minus

Ryan Pickett and Jimmy Kennedy were a handful; Leonard Little got some face time with Kurt Warner.

Grade: B +


Another good outing; Pisa Tinoisamoa was active; Chris Claiborne was strong on run support.

Injuries and illness forced this group to gut it out all day.

Grade: B

Special teams:

An impressive comeback from last week, particularly punter Reggie Hodges and the coverage units.
