    Arrow Wistrom vs. "Fill-ins"

    I don't know if it's fair to compare stats head-to-head because of the 3-to-1 handicap, but for those interested in seeing the numbers, here you go.

    Grant Wistrom after 7 games last season:
    16 total tackles
    1 sack
    1 forced fumble
    1 fumble recovery


    #94 Bryce Fisher after 7 games this season:
    21 total tackles
    3.5 sacks
    1 pass deflection


    #95 Anthony Hargrove after 7 games this season:
    19 total tackles
    0 sacks


    #96 Erik Flowers this season:
    9 total tackles
    1 sack


    [Total = 49 total tackles, 4.5 sacks]


    Grant Wistrom this season with the Seahawks:
    5 games played
    20 total tackles
    2.5 sacks


    As for the rest of the D-Line:

    #91 Leonard Little
    16 total tackles
    4 sacks
    1 forced fumble
    2 fumble recoveries

    #92 Damione Lewis
    14 total tackles
    2 sacks
    1 pass deflection

    #79 Ryan Pickett
    15 total tackles
    1 sack
    1 pass deflection


    . o O (i've got too much time on my hands)

    I defy anyone to make the argument that we have lost one game because of the difference between wistrom and fisher and i also defy one seahawks fan to try and convince me that wistrom was worth the money that they paid him when they continue to have such a blatant problem at the wide receiver spot. He was a great ram, a terrfic guy, wonderful work ethic, but in the era of the cap, clearly not a superstar and not worth the havoc he will ultimately help cause on their cap. Bobby taylor isnt doing anything worthy of the money that they paid for him either.

    Great comparison, Jake. I know there were some who were lamenting the loss of Wistrom in the offseason. It's great to see the "committee" outperforming GW. Another comparison that is just as favorable (I would imagine) is the salary of Bryce Fisher compared to what the Hawks are paying GW.

    I love the fact that this D-line is getting the kinks worked out. Once we get Kennedy back and jettison Howard, this line will be even better.

    I wasn't too concerned about the Wistrom loss. The D line is the lone bright spot of our defense this year.

    Excellent point, GC. Mismanaged cap space will derail a season quicker than any injury ever could.

    You may be right ... about having too much time on your hands that is. But what I am struck by is the fact that you have pointed to another example of how the Rams also seem "snake-bit" this year.

    First, Hawaii 5-0 puts a legitimate hit on a player and is rewarded by an injury to himself on the play. As if that didn't seem unfair, consider this. Fisher starts to establish himself as a reliable force on the DL and he gets rewarded for his efforts by getting annhilated by BooYeah on that block and he gets hurt. I really wish the Rams' FO had taken me more seriously when I suggested that a Voodoo Doctor is probably what the Rams need right now to shake that spell they seem entranced by.

    Re: Wistrom vs. "Fill-ins"

    Would it be right to assume that wistrom didn't play every down?

    Would a fairer reflection be tackles/sacks from that position by all players for both seasons?

    The D-Line has done fairly well this season, but I'd still like to see more of a pass rush. I still don't think we blitz enough.
